Architecture and interior design firm Carr have recently completed a new house in rural Australia that was based on a concept created by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects.
Named the ‘Red Hill Farm House’, the property sits on a small rise with views defined by sweeping paddocks dotted with livestock, and distant glimpses of a horseshoe shaped coastline.
Three elongated pavilions form a U shape, while the exterior has been clad in blackened timber, giving the home a monochromatic appearance.
Inside, a sense of warmth is added throughout the house with the use of a soft oak lined ceiling, that also provides a connection to the rural landscape outside.
Further inside the house, there’s high ceilings and large windows. Views of the swimming pool can be seen from the social areas of the house, like the dining room.
Contemporary furnishings in the living room create a comfortable place to relax.
Adjacent to the living room is the kitchen, that features a long light-colored island with plenty of room for food preparation, and a place for numerous people to sit at. The island is a strong contrast to the black cabinets located against the wall.
Apart from multiple bedrooms, the home also has rumpus room, a laundry/mudroom, and a home office, suitable for two people as there’s a combined desk with storage and a window for each person.
The monochromatic theme continues in the bathroom, with a dark grey vanity that features a built-in sink, and a white freestanding bathtub, that’s positioned in front of the large floor-to-ceiling window.
Here’s a look at some of the landscaping that surrounds the house. Planted garden areas are combined with trees and grassy lawns.
