Brighton Residence | Thomas Archer Homes

This single story home tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac in Melbourne's beach-side suburb of Brighton is deceptively spacious with a light airy interior that is flooded with natural light and an abundance of warmth.

Cool white tones feature as the home's neutral coastal backdrop, allowing a blank canvas for it's well-traveled owners to fill with art and decorative pieces from their travels. Designed and built by local builder Thomas Archer Homes, this clever design makes a previously vacant and tight corner of this court sing with beauty.

This narrow lot, was left vacant for years as it struggled to find an owner willing to adhere to it's 6 dispensations surrounding the property, until a clever design from Thomas Archer and it's eager new owners took on the challenge. The result is a striking home, that rather than fight with the older established homes surrounding it, shines with it's contemporary design and soft colour scheme.

Upon entering the home, you're met with instant wow factor as a pool cutting down the center of the home separates the master bedroom wing to the right and kitchen/dining/living and further bedroom wing off to the left. Also featuring a large walk-in butler's pantry with floor to ceiling wine cellar, study and second living area this home has enough room for a growing family and more. The soaring raked ceiling in the living room sets the theme for the relaxed and airy entertainers kitchen, opening out onto a deck connecting the living room to the pool while wrapping back around to the master bedroom wing. Who wouldn't want to jump out of bed and straight into that pool!

This home is truly special and it's clever design has meant every corner of this tricky block was used to it's maximum potential.
