It is best known as a haven for affluent New Yorkers in the summer months and providing the setting for F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary classic The Great Gatsby. But the Hamptons have also provided the inspiration for a unique style of residence in Mount Barker.
The Hampton Cottage at Springlake is an exclusive new home evoking all the style and charm of their Long Island companion.
“Hamptons style can be summed up in three words – elegant, sophisticated and classy. The feel is casual and relaxed but inherently stylish. The other Hamptons hallmark is an abundance of natural light with discreet window treatments that let the light pour in,” said Richard Osborne of Springlake.
Available with 3 bedrooms, the Hampton Cottages feature open plan living downstairs with bedrooms and a family bathroom (some with ensuite) on the upper level. But what sets the cottages apart are the design details, which come at an affordable price.
“The pitched roof and detailed gables give the homes stunning kerb appeal, while heightened ceilings inside fill the top floor bedrooms with light. Inclusions like timber floors, built in wardrobes and landscaping are very unusual for an affordable, modern fixed price home,” Richard said.
The homes feature a paved alfresco area, fencing and a 6-star energy rating to ensure they are efficient to heat and cool. The interiors feature light and neutral tones and include European appliances.
The first two Hampton Cottages are nearing completion and were sold-off plan. One of the excited new owners, Hayley, said the affordability, style and location were the key decision influencers.
“I’ve been living near West Lakes since 2013, but I grew up in Woodside and always wanted to return to the hills. I had been looking around for a while but couldn’t find exactly what I wanted. When I found the Hamptons Cottage at Springlake it ticked all of the boxes,” Hayley said.
“The home looks nice, it’s well priced, and I love that Springlake has the parks and lake, so you don’t feel boxed in. I am really looking forward to being back in the hills close to my family and friends and being part of the Springlake community. An added bonus is that my drive to work in the city will be faster too.”
There are only a limited number of Hampton Cottages available in future releases of the Springlake development. They are built by Gasparin Homes and the 3-bedroom home starts from $361,950.
