Chateau Hunter Valley
Sometimes dreams are very personal, and not everyone's cup of tea, but when you can transform yours into something magnificent that can be appreciated by all, you know you have a flair for design.
This stunning French Provincial style home by Luxe Home Designs by Mimi, was Mimi and her husband’s dream, having been inspired by the style from their travels overseas. Set high on a hill in the beautiful Hunter Valley NSW with sweeping views and every detail throughout the home considered, this home is truly magnificent. Not only has it met all the desires of its owners, it won the very prestigious 2018 HIA-CSR Hunter Housing Award for Custom Built Home.
Mimi says of her design “Our design vision was to create a home for us that encapsulates warmth, character, charm, and elegance. Our design challenge was to strike a balance between the need for us to pay homage to the impeccable historical lineage of French Provincial design while still retaining the ability to effectively combine these design elements with modern day living requirements.”
To achieve the classic elegance of the French style, attention to every architectural detail must be made. Intrim’s timber mouldings were used throughout the home to help achieve the final look and add texture, style and character to the home.
Intrim SK945 skirting boards in 185mm, Intrim SK945B architraves in 90mm, Rosettes, SB01 skirting blocks, the wainscoting was made up using Intrim IN16 inlay mould and Intrim CR22 chair rail, Intrim SK945 skirting profile in 185mm was inverted and used on the coffered ceiling and Intrim CR37 chair rail was used around the curtain bulkhead in the master bedroom.
