The house is divided into two zones with the lower level containing the living area kitchen and dining and the top level holding the private spaces. A space-savvy floating wood and steel staircase connects both the levels even as a large central courtyard becomes the heart of the social zone.
As is the case with most heritage homes it is the rear addition that comes to the rescue here extending the living area even while leaving the two bedrooms at the front of the house largely untouched.
It is a beautiful blend of contrasting eras with each offering something unique. With the latest addition housing the kitchen and the sitting zone it is the original farmhouse that contains the living area and the bedrooms.
