Drive past this cantilevered home at twilight, when each of the three one-meter-high chandeliers in the entrance hall is lit, and you’ll be sure to do a double-take. And the scale and impressiveness of this exterior set an expectation for the decor and design inside.

One of the things the owner enjoys most about her home is this contrast between the eyecatching outside and the comfortable, almost cosy interior.

The owner – who has years of experience in both designing and building homes – relishes the play on modernity and classicism within the house. Meander through the bathrooms and the shaker-style kitchen, and you’ll be struck by the contemporary finishes, but the furnishings introduce an element of softness that strikes an interesting counterpoint.
