THAT LIVED-IN LOOK

Home Beautiful - - HOMES -

While Alex and Rachael’s prop­erty is a brand-spank­ing new build, the cou­ple was keen to avoid a show-home look, so opted for mul­ti­ple lay­ers of matt and re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als. From the back, a tow­er­ing chim­ney of re­cy­cled brick rises from a wood-burn­ing out­door fire, while cypress tim­ber pan­elling up­stairs adds won­der­ful tex­ture and warmth. An 18-me­tre lap pool, in­clud­ing a splash zone for the cou­ple’s teenage chil­dren (and friends), was a must-have, while a size­able deck (op­po­site, where Rachael sits with Ralph the dog) is ideal for en­ter­tain­ing a crowd.
