Harmonious Fusion: Scandy meets Mid-Century Modern
Be entranced by the Scandinavian splendour and the sheer simplicity of this home – from the exquisite kitchen and furnishings, to the huge picture windows that display the garden with its beautiful Zen spaces.
A large, open-plan living room adjoins the dining room and hand-crafted timber kitchen, which stands testament to bespoke craftsmanship. Three light and lovely bedrooms with picture windows sit together at one end of the house with a large bathroom and separate toilet. Luxurious new pure wool carpets with extra-thick underlay provide a feeling of luxury.
A spacious, contemporary artist’s studio makes the most of the north-south light, creating an inspiring space that could also be utilized as large home office or, with minimal work, a fourth bedroom or extra living area (by making an opening in the wall that adjoins the home).
The lovely native front garden has been landscaped with timber screens and sculpture to create a courtyard feel – sit and contemplate. The street is whisper quiet. The serenity is complete.
Stones and native grasses feature heavily throughout the garden, creating a harmonious blend with the established old deciduous trees – a no-maintenance garden that gives back in spades. An age-old oak stands sentinel in the back garden. In winter, the leaves fall away to provide fabulous northerly sun to warm the house. In summer, it provides a canopy of green and together with the deciduous grape-vine across the pergola, provides enough shade to keep the house naturally cool.
