Minimalism is an ever popular home trend that is beautifully captured in this custom design GJ’s Hamilton showhome. Designed to emulate the elegance and charm of a modern riverside lodge.
Entering from the street, a short hallway leads into the kitchen-dining-living hub of the home. Here your eyes are drawn to a raked ceiling that gives this space a feeling of grand and uncluttered refinement. The natural colour of the laminate wood-look flooring softens a black and white decorative theme, to keep the mood relaxed and informal.
The modern kitchen has a powerful presence, but it doesn’t shout for attention. The most decorative element is a Fisher & Paykel 90cm dual cooker, which is dramatically framed by a Dekton marble-look splashback and matching benchtop.
The main bench includes barstool seating and a wine fridge, to keep the cook’s audience happy during meal prep times. Behind the kitchen there’s a fully-fledged scullery with a delightful difference – windows to the outside!
Adjacent to the casual living zone is a separate lounge for media viewing and tranquil evenings. Here the feature wall of dark panelling provides a perfect backdrop for a wall-mounted television. Alongside is an SCF frameless gas fire, which manages to be both a work of art and an effective heat source. The vaulted ceiling in this room supports excellent acoustics for movie nights.
A vaulted ceiling also features in the master bedroom, which is in a wing of its own. This spacious haven is serviced by a generous walk-in wardrobe and an immaculate black-tiled ensuite bathroom with freestanding stone tub, custom vanity and frameless shower.
On the other side of the home there are another three double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and attractive high horizontal windows. These rooms share access to the main bathroom, which is classically styled in neutral tones and white. The freestanding Athena bath adds a touch of spa-style glamour to this room.
As you’d expect with a floorplan of nearly 260m2, there are various extra features that are designed to surprise and delight. These include a two-seat study and a multi-purpose nook off the family living area. It’s easy to imagine this intriguing room as a library, music studio or hobby space.
