Amazing Carriage Home Build!
When a client wants more space, what do we do? We rebuild the home and double the size to provide them with – Yes, more space! A carriage home is a nostalgic nod to days gone by, when horse-drawn carriages were stored in the lower level or garage. But, don’t let the idea of yesteryear throw you off. This renovation is a celebration of contemporary style, high-tech design, exquisite fixtures and fittings, and huge, well-lit, open plan spaces.
Approaching the house, one is immediately impressed by the gorgeous iron grey tones of the board and batten paneling that covers the exterior. Creating an eye-catching contrast are white trims on the doors, windows, and guttering.
Inside, the home oozes light and space. Large windows allow natural sunlight to filter in, and strategically placed ceiling spotlights light up the space after dark. White was chosen as a color palette, offering a clean and neutral look that offsets the gray-brown floorboards and allows the owners to show their style with decorative art, plants, and ornaments.
The kitchen offers loads of storage space in the form of flat-paneled cabinets and drawers. The space is perfectly designed for convenience and style. Shiny chrome appliances and black fittings complete the look.
The homeowners indulge in the ultimate culinary experience with the beautifully crafted kitchen. Designed to offer both convenience and style, it boasts an abundance of storage space with flat-paneled cabinets and drawers. The glistening chrome appliances and sleek black fittings radiate a luxurious and modern feel, elevating the ambiance to new heights.
Bathrooms always define the mood at the start of the day and this lovely space is sure to give positive vibes. The white tones are clean and hygienic and the design is minimalist with a large vanity, sunken basin, and ample storage space for linen, towels, and bathroom necessities. The owners have the choice of a refreshing wake-me-up shower or a long lazy, pampering soak in the inset bathtub.
The large open spaces offer boundless possibilities. The homeowners have free reign to plan a luxurious entertaining area, dining room, family hang-out, guest space, or anything in between. This is a blank palette that only requires imagination and a creative spirit to make it the dream home of their imagination. And, getting back to horse-drawn carriages, the huge garages will now house tough SUVs, elegant sedans, and even a small tractor if required!
Take a look at the last picture to see how tired and sad this home looked before we got started and gave it a new life. The renovation ticked all the boxes and the owners are absolutely ecstatic with how much room they have!
