When it comes to crafting elegant, timeless homes on the Sunshine Coast, one architectural style that has been gaining immense popularity is the Hamptons style. Known for its classic, coastal charm and understated luxury, Hamptons-style homes bring a touch of New England sophistication to the sunny shores of Queensland, Australia. AUSMAR, an award-winning new home builder, has mastered the art of creating Hamptons-style residences that captivate homeowners and stand as a testament to quality craftsmanship.

The Allure of Hamptons Home Designs

Hamptons-style homes are characterised by their timeless appeal, characterised by clean lines, neutral colour palettes, and a sense of casual elegance. The style draws inspiration from the beachside communities of the Hamptons on Long Island, New York, where coastal living meets upscale refinement. So, how does AUSMAR bring this iconic style to life on the Sunshine Coast?

Design Elements That Define Hamptons Style in Queensland

  1. Crisp White Facades: The hallmark of a Hamptons-style home is its crisp white exterior. AUSMAR carefully selects materials and paint to achieve this classic look while ensuring the durability required for Queensland’s climate.
  2. Weatherboard Cladding: Achieving the characteristic Hamptons exterior often involves the use of weatherboard cladding. For this, AUSMAR turns to trusted products like James Hardie Linea board. Its durability and versatility make it an ideal choice for achieving the iconic Hamptons look.
  3. Pitched Roofs and Gables: Hamptons homes often feature pitched roofs and gables, adding architectural interest to the design. These elements not only enhance the aesthetics but also provide functional benefits like improved ventilation and natural light.
  4. Wide Verandas and Outdoor Living: Embracing the Queensland lifestyle, AUSMAR incorporates wide verandas and spacious outdoor living areas into their Hamptons designs. These spaces provide a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living, perfect for enjoying the Sunshine Coast’s beautiful climate.
  5. Abundant Natural Light: Large windows and glass doors are strategically placed to flood the interiors with natural light. This design element not only brightens the living spaces but also accentuates the sense of airiness and openness.
  6. Classic Interior Finishes: Inside, AUSMAR’s Hamptons-style homes feature classic interior finishes, such as timber flooring, shaker-style cabinetry, and timeless colour schemes that exude elegance.

James Hardie Linea Board: Elevating Hamptons Style

One crucial ingredient in achieving the Hamptons look is the choice of exterior cladding. AUSMAR trusts James Hardie Linea board for its Hamptons-style projects. Here’s why Linea board is a game-changer:
