Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication -Leonardo da Vinci.
Sometimes it is in the simple things the most beauty is found. The sophistication of the Hughes family home is found in the simplicity of light, space and the thoughtful connectedness to the natural surrounds.
Uncomplicated and designed for contemporary living, a delicate palette of white on white, filtered light, organic materials and interesting architectural design have created a most inviting and intimate home. The liveability resonates deeply as you reflect on the simplicity and beauty of this special Ainslie property.
The home provides comfortable and warm accomodation, four generous bedrooms including main bedroom loft style retreat, contemporary open plan living, fully insulated and energy efficient with double glazing throughout.
Outdoor living spaces have been cleverly interwoven into the home and garden plan with alfresco decking, firepit, children’s play areas and kitchen gardens.
The home employs it’s carefully contained palette to arrive at striking compositions and luxurious impressions. Set against the intricacy and abundance of nature, gardens and the outdoors, the understated elegance of this design sets it a notch above and apart.
