A heritage heart with a modern aestheticTaking inspiration from a Federation Manor the home sits stately high in the block, presiding regally over Maple Drive. This impressive master built property, designed and constructed by architect the late Russell Skinner, is one of just a handful of the much loved and coveted Treffyn Home properties in the Maitland area.
The design has its roots in a traditional Australian aesthetic with its wide verandas, the use of timber fretwork, high ceilings and leadlight glass. Old neatly dovetails with new at this property thanks to the skilful touch of the celebrated designer and builder.
His selections tie the contemporary and traditional together beautifully. In the home’s core living space, laid back luxury is the name of the game. There is a real airiness to the house because of the large rooms and high ceilings. With expanses of glass drawing daylight and established gardens into its rooms, the home wraps around an inviting kitchen and living zone.
The bedrooms with large timber framed windows, feel especially light and airy. The main and second bedroom are particularly inviting as they offer bay windows. From the main bedroom a heritage profile door leads you out into a private veranda which wraps around the corner of the building and doubles as an outdoor additional living space, private and away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the home.
The ensuite has understated style, thanks to elements including a Carrara marble vanity top, paired with checkerboard tiles and brushed brass exposed tapware.
In a home where the craftsmanship throughout is just superb, the home’s appeal is immediately apparent.
