The entrance of the private home seems modest but the interior opens up to reveal a spacious living area surrounded by glass windows. The color scheme inside the home is as neutral as possible with pops of yellow and orange being used to add some color. Wood is the major component of the beachfront residence along with a steel framework that gives it a perched silhouette. A living area three serene bedrooms and 2 lovely traditional bathrooms complete this beautiful escape that is priced at $4 million.
Not every cottage is tiny; this one has multiple chimneys indicating no fewer than 9 fireplaces—so you can enjoy a toasty fire almost anywhere. Other features like stone walls or in this case a bridge complement stone cottages and create harmony with the landscaping in some cases meaning that minimal attention needs to be paid to gardening.
Large framed glass doors effortlessly connect the new kitchen and social zone with the garden outside. On the inside a simple color scheme dominated by white is employed while playful accents and edgy decor add some much needed color.
The dark exterior of the cottage allows it to blend in effortlessly with the landscape outside as dusk sets in everyday while the spacious deck area and the large living space with glass walls visually connect the interior with the outdoors. Panoramic views of the serene lake outside and the lush green natural canopy turn this retreat into a nature-lover’s delight…
Have you ever felt that the magic of your new home or renovated apartment wore off all too quickly and you were left searching for ways to recapture that excitement? The creative folks at Andrew Maynard Architects came up with an innovative new way to keep things fresh and unique as they turned an old boring structure in Australia into a truly one-of-a-kind modern home.
Here the local grasses and ivies beautifully combine with the stone architecture and make a large building seem cozier: This -style room shows what is possible when you think modern with a traditional cottage (here they’ve simply taken out the attic floor of a traditional cottage to give the space a cathedral ceiling).
Spanish cedar and brick give the home a warm traditional ambiance while the decor is kept minimal and unassuming. Wood is the major component that shapes the ceiling in each room the modern kitchen and the lovely wardrobes while the neutral color palette stays away from gaudy colors.
