Home Beautiful - - HOMES -

Who lives here?

Rachael, a project man­ager; Alex, co-owner of Smarter Bath­rooms; their chil­dren, Ge­or­gia, 15, and Char­lie, 14; Ralph the dog and Missy the cat. What do you love about liv­ing in a new home? Rachael: “It doesn’t feel like a new home be­cause of the nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als through­out. But the beauty of it is that we don’t feel the need to be do­ing any projects on the week­ends, so we can re­lax and en­ter­tain our friends and fam­ily.” What is your favourite part of the home? “Ev­ery part of the home is used ex­actly as we en­vis­aged it. In sum­mer we are out­side in the pool and bar­be­cu­ing on the deck; in win­ter we are in front of the fire in the sit­ting room.” Where would we find you all on a Sun­day? “Sun­day morn­ing is a busy time with sport­ing com­mit­ments – but we re­con­vene on Sun­day evening, of­ten with a roast and al­ways with a fire in the open fire­place.”
