Smart Choice Homes worked with their clients on this project to achieve a stunning new Hampton’s style renovation. With the home positioned only steps from absolute beachfront access, the clients opted for a grand summer Hamptons home.

After much discussion the clients decided on a complete renovation instead of a knock down rebuild, as the footprint of the original standing house was good, and structurally sound to achieve their desired finish.

The tiled roof was removed to make way for a new colorbond roof and all plasterboard was removed from inside of the house. Wiring and plumbing was removed and upgraded.  The new plan offered a spacious new home with open living spaces and natural light. The majority of the walls were moved to achieve this spaciousness and the final home felt like a completely new build, not a renovation.

The owner chose colour palettes of white, ivory and neutral colours, creating a bright and airy coastal feel. When it came to achieving the authentic Hamptons style it was all in the details. The owners did a great job of selections incorporating elegant cornices and moulding. Pendant lights in traditional shapes were chosen in the kitchen and bathrooms, classic tap ware installed, intricately bordered mirrors, and internal doors with window trims helped create the classic timeless look and timber flooring throughout the home was the perfect finish. Every window was removed and replaced. VJ panelling was added around most of the home to continue the feel through the house and the bathrooms were designed to be elegant with a classic old world twist.

The pool also had a makeover, with a new pebble interior and travertine tile trim. Transforming it from a dated pool that had seen better days to an inviting pool that made a statement and complimented the home beautifully.
