Hampton Style Homes are extremely popular at the moment and our clients are seeing incredible returns when selling their Storybook homes. With builders in the marketplace charging exorbitant prices to build a Hampton style home, Storybook is a refreshing, cost effective alternative. Because each project is custom designed, we are able to include the features a client wants and create a truly “one of a kind” Hampton Style Home – perfect for their site, council requirements & budget. Maple house is an example of a home with the Hampton’s flair. Round & hi-light windows, barn style garage doors, lowered entry portico, weatherboards & high pitched gabled rooflines. The home can be as fussy or as simple as required to suit client taste. Participation can be varied for those wanting to roll up their sleeves and save even more money and we can even design a Hampton Style Home to suit the slope of your land.
Maple House is a 4 bedroom Hampton Style Home featuring 4 bedrooms & a study. The round feature window above the portico floods the grand entry with natural light and sets off the staircase leading to an open landing overlooking this space. A feature pendant light centred over the entry & stairwell further adds to the drama. The master bedroom is well zoned from the other bedrooms by way of a sitting room/parents retreat and is blessed with a large ensuite, walk in robe & window seat within the front facing dormer window. This design ‘being a custom home’ features a huge studio for the client to explore their creative pursuits. An open living, kitchen meals area at the rear of the home overlooks a pool & alfresco, leading to the backyard with a simple, relaxed facade.

Pink Hill Manor Re-Imagined is Storybook’s take on French Provincial. Working closely with the client & their preferred style, this home features many of the characteristics of the typical french provincial home. A sense of symmetry, arched windows, balcony over a central entryway with decorative wrought iron balustrade. Colonial windows, french doors, hipped roofs and a central dormer balance the simple elegant stately exterior. While this style is not typically the Storybook look, many of these features are found in our homes in varying combinations. It’s amazing just how much a home can change by tweaking these elements.
Of course budget was still a driving force in respect of design. We had to carefully design around the slope of the site, setback requirements & building height restrictions. Material specifications imposed by the covenant was also a consideration, not to mention an unusually shaped site. The use of weatherboards and colorbond makes this design feel far more homely and inviting than a fully masonry / tile alternative – which is typical for this style of architecture. The bulk has been softened by the use of single story elements, which is not only pleasing to the eye but a development requirement. In the end, Pink Hill manor Re-Imagined is French Provincial with an Australian twist and will be a great addition to the area.
