French Appeal


Using a French Provincial theme, Don Nelson set about designing a barn and a large house concurrently.  French roof tiles, solid plaster walls and columns give this home a sense of permanence.  Set against a backdrop of lush countryside with wide terraces and extensive glazing permit panoramic vistas.

The house has been carefully designed to reflect the owners’ lifestyle.  A front entry portico includes wrought iron gates and large timber doors that open to reveal light, airy living spaces.  Contained in a double-height void, the foyer has a sense of grandeur that is continued throughout the interior, and enhanced by details such as marble floors, wrought iron balustrades and ornate light fittings. In the kitchen, large bi-fold windows provide a convenient connection with the alfresco dining area.  Wooden cabinetry, granite surfaces and a central island which includes built-in microwave and storage.
