Set in Victoria’s southwest, Espie Residence bridges the grand qualities of a historic home with a contemporary, double brick addition, crafting a calm and honest home with a sanctuary-like feel.
The home’s ornate front rooms are saturated in deep, duck-egg and china blue, framing ambient lighting, lush furnishings and the clients’ coveted fine art collection, affording a sense of drama. Bespoke arched doors articulate the threshold to the addition beyond, where a lighter, contemporary sensibility is embraced with concrete floors, white walls, pale figured stone and timber accents. Broad windows frame views to a rambling garden and pool pavilion, supporting the family’s active coastal lifestyle.
