On a quiet inner street not far from Crescent Beach sits a single home with a block-like appearance — an ultramodern standalone mansion that is one of the prize homes in the Hometown Heroes Lottery.
Built by Sareen Development, this two-storey home includes four bedrooms, and four and a half bathrooms in 3,854 square feet of living space. Upon stepping into this airy, elegant and bright house, the entrance hall’s soaring, 20-foot-high ceiling combined with an open floor plan and many windows provide an instant sense of light and spaciousness. Warm and comfortable earth tones unify everything, while classic embellishments such as black, grey and white add a calmness and luxury to the décor.
To the right of the entrance hall sits a spacious drawing room. A circle of white- and champagne-coloured sofas form a comfortable conversation space. Light streams through giant windows, which offer views of the beautiful garden. Open the doors that lead outside, and a sitting area in the garden naturally becomes one with this space.
To the left is a dining room, featuring a simplistic and angular brown dining table paired with sand-coloured dining chairs. A textured bronze cabinet and a small amount of gold accents bring a sense of luxury into this otherwise simple space.
Moving in from the entrance brings one into an open space shared by the living room and kitchen. In the living room, a grey leather sofa set and light brown single sofa chair face a television and fireplace. Echoing the angular design of the house, this room features never-ending square shapes that resemble boxes — the aforementioned formal dining table, the television wall in the living room, fireplace and low cabinet shelves. These square shapes are organized like patchwork into a clean and modern design. There’s also a door here that leads outside and once opened, the indoor and outdoor spaces align, creating a great space for entertaining.
Ascend the suspended stairs in the entrance hall and arrive at the second floor bedrooms. The stair design is extremely clean and modern — the steps match the light brown of the floors, with frameless glass fencing and wooden rails attached only on the wall side. The hidden lighting located underneath the rails further adds to a feeling of being suspended.
All four bedrooms are on the second floor. The master, which faces the garden, features three massive windows that occupy an entire wall. The big pine and cypress trees outside seem almost to extend their green branches into the room. A spacious, walk-in closet fulfils the needs of two occupants, and a long, duo-sink counter in the bathroom allows both individuals to simultaneously enjoy the space. The angular bathtub extends the main theme of the house, while the spacious shower, separated by glass, is luxurious and convenient.
Each of the other bedrooms has unique characteristics. An additional bathroom on this floor is lit with a sunroof. With the simple press of a button, the sunroof opens, guaranteeing sufficient lighting and allowing fresh air to flow through the room.
