Hawthorn House is a new, contemporary home providing expansive living for a young family of five.
From the dramatic bluestone clad façade, through the green private courtyard entry to the tennis court at the rear there is an immediate sense of connection from inside to the outdoors through the double height windows that frame the view to trees outside and the pool that wraps around the rear of the living area.
Inside, the house has a relaxed, pared-back feel. A refined natural palette of timber, stone and white walls, is punctuated by black furniture, lighting and expansive glazing.
A layering of functionality and practicality makes for easy family living. Built in joinery and hidden cabinetry is extensive, all space is maximised and everything has a place, whether it is kids toys or crafts, adults work, cooking, entertaining or relaxing.
The kitchen is sleek and minimalist. A generous butler’s pantry to the rear make it a kitchen that’s easily kept clutter-free. Built in cabinetry is continued in the dining area, covered in leathered granite which provides a statement, and conceals storage for all dining needs. The utility room and laundry provide ample space for bags, hats and shoes.
Kids activities are well catered for in the living area, with a craft space beside the kitchen and a children’s rumpus area hidden in the basement level. Upstairs the home enjoys expansive views to the city. There are four bedrooms, with the study and parents retreat enjoying the best views in the house.
Hawthorn House is a home to enjoy. For kids who have space to play and create, for adults who have the perfect place to entertain and relax. It’s a home where everything has been considered and has its place.
