House Tour: A Byron-Meets-Palm Springs-Style Abode
It’s hard to believe that today’s light, bright home was once a run-down 60’s brick home purchase on auction. The Miller family saw the potential in this stunning residence and undertook a grand renovation to transform it into the beauty it is today.
When it was first purchased, the home had not been lived in in almost 15 years. It was an old, tired and dilapidated house but not without potential. The home was greatly in need of some love. So, TLC is exactly what the Millers gave her.
The location was a great starting point. The house is situated right near the Barwon River in New South Wales, Australia. The motivation was thus to create a serene, calming home that could be enjoyed by the whole family.
Slow and steady wins the race
Renovations were thus slow and steady. Nothing was rushed. Furthermore, every angle of this property was carefully considered. From purchasing the property through to planning and building. The entire process therefore took just under two years, and the build itself taking around 12 months.
Achieving the look they wanted for their home meant incorporating into the design a lot of natural light, white and timber, VJ panelling, and keeping the original raked ceilings. The couple also decided to keep the same large window plan and the original sunken lounge, which has since become their favourite room in the house.
“It’s a little bit mid-century Palm Springs, and a little bit relaxed Byron Bay … a couple of our favourite vibes mixed together,” explains the new owners.
It’s a beautiful family home now – modern and clean with a flow from the interiors to a lovely little outdoor dining area in the back yard.
