This cute well built colonial style 70's family home, sits down and back from the street and is surrounded by well-landscaped gardens with that typical Darlington stone retaining walls. The family has grown and now the home needs to get back up with the times. The concept myself and the client are working on includes a larger kitchen/living/dining/alfresco extension to the North that will free up some space in the existing footprint for more bedrooms and a rumpus room. We are also adding a small extension to the South to add an upgraded Laundry and another bedroom.
The new pavilion is connected to the existing building via a new breezeway entry that looks towards the rear gardens and winter creek. The new pavilion features a raking ceiling that spans the length of the dining and living areas, allowing the potential for extended dining table arrangements and creating symmetry. The Kitchen has views of the street and across the dining to the pool and alfresco, it also wraps behind the computer nook to a semi-private butlers kitchen/pantry. The fire is located to be visible from all spaces and has room for flexible seating so you can warm your toes.
We will salvage the existing carport and recommissioned in its new location with undercover access to the new pavilions via the mudroom, which allows for an easy drop and pick-up for school bags, shopping and all else needed when your ducking in and out of the house. The exterior is generally kept true to the original homes feel, but with the addition of feature stonework to earth the home and reflect the surrounding stone landscaping walls.
The existing internals of the home is also being modified to create a Master Bedroom Suite, more bedrooms, rearranged wet areas and extra storage.
