Cantwell Street

Located on an acreage property with an existing house, this client desired a contemporary farmhouse style home to be added. The existing home has been maintained to function as a guest house for the family’s frequent visitors.

​To achieve the farmhouse style in a modern way, we enclosed the entire house with a long gable roof and separated the private and public areas of the house by the entry corridor. The public areas include the living, dining and kitchen spaces which sit under a high raking ceiling and flow seamlessly out to the deck running the full length of the house. This allows for stunning views of the property from all public spaces.

​The private spaces include the bedrooms, bathrooms, study and private lounge. The highlight of this area is the master bedroom suite that also has a high raking ceiling and a full wall of sliding doors that open onto the deck and the landscape.
