Waimea West - 2014
An impressive Hamptons inspired home
It is astounding that this is the first house the owners have built. The vision and attention to detail by both the owners and their builder makes this a perfect home to be immensely proud of. The majestic full height stone crafted fireplace anchors this light and airy Hamptons inspired home to the expansive vistas of the surrounding coastal landscape.
The perfectly detailed and appointed bespoke kitchen, spacious dining and living area are impressively framed by distinctive exposed Douglas Fir beams overhead and golden American Oak flooring underfoot. The hidden picture rails are further evidence of the carefully considered design elements evident throughout the home.
Flowing from the vaulted ceiling front entrance the bedrooms and tiled bathrooms are nestled in the west-wing to capture the sun and views over the vineyard and orchard to the Waimea Estuary beyond. The angled ceiling details are continued in the master bedroom with marble tiled and American Oak bespoke joinery ensuite. The modern external cladding and windows cleverly mimic the traditional style of the original Hamptons builders, while the extensive balconies, Purple Heart decking and paved landscaped areas create the carefree lifestyle of days at the beach and evening entertaining.
The double garage and utility areas of the home are expertly positioned for ease of access and use without compromising the artfully designed living flow and views from this impressive
“This was our first experience in building a home so we were somewhat apprehensive at the outset. However the whole process from start to finish went extremely smoothly.
It was evident that every member of the Foothold team took pride in their work and the attention to detail and craftsmanship was of the highest quality. In fact many of the sub-contractors commented on this also and told us how much they enjoyed working with Foothold.
All our questions and concerns were given immediate attention and Mick and his team always made us feel our home was their top priority.
The end result met all our expectations and without hesitation we would recommend Foothold to anyone looking to build”.
