Country Home

HIA ACT Southern NSW Housing and Kitchen and Bathroom Awards

Winner: Higginson Homes & Constructions

This modern 5-bedroom American barn-style home perfectly balances the needs of entertainers and a growing family. Inside, the open living area with high raked ceilings and exposed beams creates a sense of space and grandeur. The kitchen island is adorned with handmade Bejmat clay tiles, maintaining the house's natural tones and textures. The bathrooms showcase travertine tiles, a freestanding bath, and a limestone-covered ensuite with skylights for natural light. With spacious outdoor living areas, a wood fireplace, and a pool house/bar for hosting guests the home lends itself well to summer living. The exterior combines stone, timber, bagged brick, and James Hardie board and batten cladding for a textured and dimensional look. The design prioritizes northern aspects to maximize natural light year-round, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere and a home to suit the modern family.
