From what was once known as the ‘dolls house’, a major transformation has occurred at this well-known cottage home. The clients’ brief of open living has been executed to perfection and a beautiful functional family home has been achieved. The original cottage feel of the house has been retained with the use of weatherboards and the dorma window design while inside has been modernised and given a fresh colour palette. The use of skylights and vertical panelling give the home a relaxed beach feel.
