The Rural Building Company designed and built a captivating family home in Darlington, Australia. A home built for the enjoyment of its inhabitants is exemplified in the panoramic Marri View Residence as gathering vistas from all angles. This beautiful display home in Australia opens the road to creating customized homes where you feel like a piece of the puzzle added to the whole.
Past inviting double French doors, the welcoming living space opens to views of the street. Bold and transparent, the traditional single family residence unfolds under raked timber lined ceilings as to gather all family under the same roof. Supported by a 300 mm diameter natural bush pole in the middle of the room, the roof shelters a collection of spaces built with a deep respect for individuality. Within an open floor plan rounded to the street, inviting and well illuminated social areas ease the way into social cooking and flirting with the idea of hosting more dinner parties.
“From first impressions the elevation offers all the romance of a traditional Rural Building Company home, with featured bush pole supports, an extensive wrap around split pitch verandah and with exposed timber rafters. Detailed elements such as feature brickwork accented with render, and weatherboard panels contribute to the Australian feel of the home.” Architects of Rural Building Company continue with their description, delving deeper into the inspiring traditional design:
“Within the spacious freeform living and dining areas is the stunning kitchen. It features an expansive window splash back with double French doors at either side which provide direct access to the well sized raking alfresco area. This allows for ease of interaction between guests and the chef when entertaining. Highlight raking windows situated above the kitchen allows for access of natural light during the day and further contribute to the openness of the design. The kitchen also features a separate fully appointed scullery with additional sink and walk in pantry, perfect for hiding kitchen appliances and the initial preparations of family meals. The scullery offers convenient access to a the laundry.”
The private bedroom wing accommodates the master bedroom, private office space and a home theatre, while the remaining three bedrooms with bathrooms were designed to occupy the opposite side of the home.
