Twin, cantilevered vanity cabinets, large mirrors, and a freestanding tub create a spacious bathroom, while bifolding windows open the room up to the view. The bathroom is also fully tiled.

Finding the right plot of land is just the first step in a new home project. Then you have to consider an architect and a builder, and make a whole raft of other decisions.

The owners of this new home on a rural plateau in Coatesville solved the problem by commissioning an architect and a building team who worked together to deliver the perfect solution.

House of Nautica built the home to architect Brent Hulena's specifications. The home, which sits up proud of the plateau, comprises three linked, pitched-roof pavilions that wrap around a large entertaining terrace on the west side. Full-height glazing in all the rooms maximises the sun, light and views, and opens up the interior to the terrace.

Sarking on the ceiling of this new pavilion-style country house follows the soaring roofline, while the skylights overhead let in plenty of natural light. A fireplace clad in Schist is the centrepiece of the open-plan living space, which also includes a dining area and kitchen. Hardwood flooring connects all three elements. The whole room opens out to an entertaining deck, via large ranchsliding doors.

The home itself has a commanding presence, due to both the design and materials. The simple forms, plastered concrete block exterior and wide pan metal roofing articulate the exterior, and enhance the sense of permanence.

The same forms define the interior, which features soaring sarked ceilings that follow the gabled roofline. This makes for a very light, airy, spacious home.

The owners say the house ticks all the boxes for their ideal home it offers relaxed living, is hard wearing and low maintenance, and provides a fun environment for the children. The premium finish and modern, yet timeless design, are also greatly appreciated.
