Hamptons Style Homes: Timeless Design for Australian Living

Lake Mulwala Residence: A Perfect Blend of Classic and Contemporary

The Hamptons-style home is a beloved architectural style, particularly among those who appreciate its classic and refined design. Originating from the picturesque seaside communities of Long Island, New York, these homes are renowned for their timeless appeal. These stunning builds which are known for spacious interiors and generous balconies, promote indoor-outdoor living, as well as entertaining and relaxation, which makes them a popular choice for an Australian family home. 

One outstanding example of the Hamptons style can be found on Lake Mulwala, NSW built by the award-winning construction company Hadar Homes. The residence is a breathtaking exemplar of the style, while indoor and outdoor furniture by Australian and European brands from Cosh Living come together, creating a cohesive and elegant ambience.

Hadar Homes, who specialises in constructing high-end homes, worked closely with their client to create a luxurious, open-plan holiday residence that fully embraced its location, the Mulwala lifestyle, and climate. With a distinctive, white-painted weatherboard façade, the home instantly evokes the iconic Hamptons style. 

As you first enter, a nook nestled at the base of the staircase welcomes you with the Johanna Armchair from Australian brand Kett, The chair's elegantly curved armrests add a touch of softness to the interior, balancing the strong lines of the staircase and the window frames in the background.

Continuing through the ground floor, a spacious dining room awaits, with large windows that offer stunning views of the backyard and pool. The dining room's light and airy atmosphere is accentuated by the coastal-inspired decor, featuring soft beiges, gold and blue accents that are complemented by the natural stone finishes and contrasting timber floors. The Johanna Armchairs, Elliptical table by Kett and Velis Barstools from Potocco have been thoughtfully upholstered and stained to mimic these tones, creating a cohesive and inviting space that seamlessly blends style and comfort.
