French Sydney Red, Shingle Sydney Red
This two-storey home is tucked away in the peaceful town of Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains, NSW. It is grand in size
and elegant in design.
The house has been cleverly designed to ensure that it maintains the typical “mountains hideaway” characteristics of warmth,
comfort and cottage charm. The look and feel is one of classic French Federation architecture, and the use of rich colouring
in the brickwork and roof tiles further intensifies the traditional French appeal.
The large expanse of roof stands out stylishly without being overpowering and the great turret, which crowns the grand octagonal room, sits tall and proud. The flat Terracotta Shingles on the turret help achieve a balance between traditional and contemporary design. The finials are the perfect way to finish off the cosy hideaway with grand, French-style elegance.
"Skillful design and clever material selection have resulted in a roof with rich colouring and dramatic forms – a fitting top to a balanced mountain hideaway."
