Space seems to be hardly an issue at this warehouse conversion as the open living area on the lower level leads to an equally large kitchen and dining zone. Wood brings warmth to this setting even as a smart stairway leads to the top level with its own sitting / family area bedrooms and bathrooms. But it is the terrace that truly steals the spotlight at this Aussie house as its lush green setting beautiful lighting and alfresco dining encourage homeowners to spend more time outside than indoors.
The four bedroom and two bathroom family home was once a large warehouse and in its latest avatar it combines its past heritage with contemporary comfort cheerful living space and a serene leafy terrace. The result is truly spectacular as one gets to enjoy the best of Melbourne even while escaping the stereotypical city life.
The coastal escape sits on a thin strip of land on Broad Cove Marsh Road Cape Breton Island Nova Scotia and it is the landscape that defines its form and the materials used. A metallic frame provides the bones for the house with custom millwork creating a warm and cozy interior that seems to visually extend outside.
Additions like the gorgeous Saarinen Tulip Table and the iconic Platner armchairs in the dining room bold pendants with golden glint glittering bedside tables and plush rugs and drapes give the interior a timeless and flamboyant look.
Despite its seemingly daring form the innovative extension feels perfectly at home in the more traditional backdrop with aging metallic finishes and unassuming décor completing the open interior. A neutral backdrop in pristine white pastel hues that usher in an air of femininity and bright warm metallics which dazzle at every turn – is a residence that definitely moves away from the stereotypical townhouse!
