A unique Amer­i­can style is gain­ing mo­men­tum, as fol­low­ers are drawn to the char­ac­ter it adds to a home

HAMPTONS meets the hin­ter­land in this cus­tom-de­signed man­sion, on the mar­ket for the first time in al­most a decade.

Set in a pres­ti­gious gated en­clave, 10 Sun­nymeade Place, Mudgeer­aba, has been metic­u­lously planned by Gold Coast de­signer Jared Poole to evoke a clas­sic Hamptons home.

Built in 2009, the prop­erty is home to To­tal Prop­erty Group man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Adrian Par­sons and his wife Ni­cole.

White tim­ber and glass dou­ble doors cre­ate a gor­geous en­trance into the home which has a colour pal­ette of white, grey and beige tones.

Dark tim­ber floors con­trast with the el­e­gant set­ting and the bed­rooms fea­ture crys­tal chan­de­liers.

The home in­cludes a mud room – ideal for coats, shoes and stor­age upon en­try,

Mr Poole said the room was a tra­di­tional el­e­ment coined in the Hamptons de­sign.

“Hamptons is be­com­ing a very pop­u­lar style, it is seen a lot and it is seen in dif­fer­ent ways, Hamptons beach houses, the clas­sic style or just houses with ac­cents of Hamptons,” Mr Poole said.

“There are a lot of op­por­tu­ni­ties for us­ing this par­tic­u­lar style but in this house it was the level of de­tail in­ter­nally and ex­ter­nally.

“Hamptons re­ally shines through, es­pe­cially in the kitchen and bath­rooms. A few peo­ple have said they are re­ally drawn to the look be­cause of the homely ef­fect it has – and I think that’s why the style is gain­ing mo­men­tum, be­cause peo­ple are af­ter char­ac­ter.”

Hand­crafted french doors, wall­pa­per im­ported from Lon­don and hand­made tiles are some of the stand­out fea­tures in the house, but it wouldn’t be an au­then­tic Hamptons home with­out the cus­tom light­ing im­ported from the re­gion in Amer­ica.

There are six dou­ble-sized bed­rooms, three with en­suites, and the main bed­room has dou­ble-door ac­cess to a shared bal­cony.
