Hall & Hart's Custom Hamptons Project has earned a well-deserved place as a standout finalist in this year's prestigious Master Builders Association NSW 2023 Excellence in Housing & Pool Awards.
Tucked away in the highly sought-after suburb of Lane Cove, Sydney, this architecturally designed 5-bedroom home exudes sophistication and allure.
Inspired by our most loved Hamptons display home, the Chelsea, the eye-catching black and white exterior colour scheme, accompanied by a tiled Horizon flat profile roof with an A-line ridge, and rendered Hebel walls and cladding, adds to the charm of the house. Classic Hamptons elements, such as colonial bar windows, elegant window architraves, a private balcony, and a double gable roof line with gable vents, all contribute to the home's distinctive character and timeless appeal.
A Clients Journey of Exploration
Embarking on a journey of exploration, our clients visited several display homes to find the perfect custom builder for their project. After careful consideration, they ultimately chose to design and build with Hall & Hart. Initially, they believed Hall & Hart might be out of their price range, but to their delight, upon conducting a thorough comparison, they discovered that Hall & Hart offered a superior option that fit within their budget.
“Hall & Hart display homes were always so much better than the others that I assumed they were beyond my price point. We had begun the journey with 2 other companies and decided to see how Hall & Hart would compare. After I considered all the upgrades from the competition to my surprise Hall &Hart came in more competitive on their price.”
From Renovation to Knockdown Rebuild
Our client’s journey of creating their dream home was not just a practical decision but an emotional one as well. Initially considering renovating their old Californian Bungalow, they faced the realisation that it wouldn't fulfil their desire for the ideal aspect and natural light. This led them to embrace the knockdown rebuild path, which opened exciting opportunities to design a new home that perfectly harnessed natural light and maximised the property's stunning vantage points.
Our clients shared, "We did consider renovating our old Californian Bungalow, but unfortunately, we couldn't achieve the desired aspect and natural light that we longed for."
Discovering the Thoughtful Features of this Exceptional Home
Stepping inside the finalist home through the grand double door entry, visitors are greeted by a striking all-black staircase adorned with a feature timber balustrade. Full-height wall panelling and elegant engineered timber flooring lead the way into an impressive open-plan lounge, dining, kitchen, and entertaining area. The living and dining spaces boast towering 4,750 high ceilings, designed with extended height and highlight windows to flood the rooms with natural light.
The home features thoughtful details, including soundproofing in the master bedroom, guest room, and theatre, oversized bedrooms and retractable fly screens for the family, dining, and alfresco sliding doors. The main bathroom and powder room showcase beautiful full-height tiled walls, enhancing the overall luxurious ambience of this exceptional home.
From Californian Bungalow to a Light-Filled Sanctuary
With an abundance of natural light and the addition of skylights and high-line windows, the ground floor of the home radiates a warm and inviting atmosphere. This transformation has had a positive impact on our clients as they now enjoy the rejuvenating benefits of ample sunlight in contrast to their previous dark living situation.
“The ground floor and natural light we get is amazing. We live in a very leafy suburb where sunlight in our old house was limited. The skylight and high line windows and almost 5m ceilings we have now enabled us to enjoy a lot more natural light and has had a positive impact on our mental health (we lived in the dark for a long time!)”
Hall & Hart's Custom Hamptons Project stands as a true testament to excellence in design and craftsmanship, deserving of its place among the finalists in the Master Builders Association NSW 2023 Excellence in Housing & Pool Awards.
