Hunter Valley, NSW
The Richards Residence is a modern interpretation of the country homestead. A covered walkway leads you from the front gate down through a traditional home garden with a mixture of formal and native plants, creating a lush and enticing welcome. Once inside, this relaxed four bedroom home has a large open plan living area, with warm timber floors contrasting against the clean lines of a modern country kitchen. Floor to ceiling windows and triple sliding doors allow access to the expansive views and large verandah overlooking rolling pastures.
In conjunction with the new house, the development also included the restoration of a slab timber kitchen building and small stone creamery, enriching the homestead with a sense of history and old-world charm.
