Let’s see what they envision for this (soon-to-be) super modern, upmarket family home…
The envisioned look for the new house's northern side beautifully shows off the structure's elongated design, immediately conjuring up visions of spacious interiors and a luxurious lifestyle. But let's not overlook the picturesque trimmings of the exteriors, especially not the lush plants / trees and immaculately manicured garden.
But in order to appreciate the professionals’ vision for the new look we must also take into consideration what they are working with – a.k.a. the ‘before’ space.
As we can see, the house originally had the elongated look, albeit with a more vintage-like design that made it much more fitting for the 80s and 90s.
A new century deserves a fresh makeover!
We zoom in on the outside socialising space (the terrace / patio). The old one, even though pleasantly spacious, still seemed stuck in time!
Now this is much better! Still enjoying a super spacious layout, luxurious add-ons will ensure the new entertainment space is never without a dull moment. Which is your favourite? The covered seating area? The garden trimmings? How about the splash pool?
Speaking of pool, the original house enjoyed quite the welcoming (and much bigger) swimming pool, located below the previously seen exterior entertainment area. But what will it look like once these professionals are done with it?
Positively elegant! The pool is exactly where it always was, only now this pool-party hot spot is conveniently linked with the upstairs entertainment area. And look how it seems bigger thanks to the relocation of the lush flora!
Let’s indulge in a few more ‘before and after’ pics to further inspire some daydreaming about what this family home will look like…
