The latest display house in Altona from Porter Davis, the Waldorf Grange 49, is a beautiful double-storey home in the elegant and sought-after Hamptons style, inspired by white-sand beaches and turquoise waters of a summer holiday.
From the moment of entry through double doors, the sense of light and space is profound, with the eyes drawn instantly to the magnificent double-height living area at the back and the alfresco area beyond acres of glass.
A breezy Hampton’s feel
The open-plan study and lounge room to the right of entry are equally eye-catching, with the lounge room’s focal point a gorgeous stone-clad fireplace, around which it’s easy to imagine gathering with family or guests to watch a movie on a chilly winter evening, a glass of red in hand.
Head past a stylish carpeted staircase, with powder room and walk-in storage tucked behind, to arrive at the superb kitchen, dining zone and aforementioned soaring sitting area.
Throughout the ground floor, the crisp-white palette, anchored by sandy-toned matte floor planks, capture the breezy Hampton’s feel, while blingy lightfittings dazzle with class.
Expansive in design
The expansive kitchen sings from the Hampton’s song sheet, with refined cabinetry adorned with gold fittings matching the tapware – the perfect marriage with the marble on benches and island counter. The large walk-in galley pantry connects with a smart laundry.
Tucked off the family domain, a guest bedroom has a walk-through robe and a chic en suite.
Relaxed and beachy vibe
At the head of the stairs, a carpeted rumpus room and gallery landing underscore the wonderful openness of the floorplan, and access to a large terrace reinforces the relaxed holiday vibe, as do ceiling fans and white shutters.
The three carpeted secondary bedrooms up here each have a walk-through robe and sleek en suite, while the superb main bedroom is a true oasis of sumptuous grace.
As well as a charming window seat, the vast room is paired with an uber-smart twin fitted dressing room leading to the luxe en suite. A freestanding tub beneath a large window, a marble dual-basin vanity, gold fittings, roomy shower, and an enclosed toilet signal blissful indulgence.
Everything about the Waldorf Grange exudes a grandeur that never dominates its essential relaxed beachy vibe, a terrific turn from Porter Davis that will win admirers aplenty.
