Welcome to our gallery featuring the delightfully surprising Glen Iris project, a home designed by Canny.
This home is a beautiful two story Hamptons style structure, custom designed with both traditional and modern style elements. The unique mixture offers a timeless appearance and all the utility of modern home construction.
The home interior centers on an open-plan living, dining, and kitchen space that spirals outward toward the private areas of the home. The kitchen itself boasts a unique glass backsplash, allowing for expansive outdoor views in a space normally reserved for tile.
The living room spills outward onto the backyard patio, with a massive set of sliding glass doors, blurring the line between indoor and outdoor spaces. Speaking of blurred lines, the home features an abundance of large windows throughout, including full height glazing around the living room. These allow the interior spaces to bask in natural light, and truly open up the visual lines from anywhere within the home.
Throughout the interior, you’ll see a multitude of rich textural detail, including dark hardwood flooring, a stone fireplace surround, and bold white cabinetry in the kitchen. The style is varied yet cohesive.
One of the most unique features of the interior is a deeply luxurious wine cellar, wrapped in glass and dark stained wood. The extended space can be partitioned and hidden by a full height curtain, allowing display only when it’s needed.
Moving to the exterior, we see the innovative design that integrates the surrounding patio and pool into the home design itself, nesting the pool edge right against the living room windows. This pool, built by Integrated Pools, is a central feature of the home design, connecting the cozy but luxurious backyard to the wide-open pool house at the rear.
With an abundance of stylish and useful features packed into a modest space, this home makes the most of its footprint. Rich materials, thoughtful design, and a playful sense of space combine to create a thoroughly rewarding house.
From the backyard, we see the living room spilling out over the tile covered patio through sliding glass doors. With a full dining setup and set of relaxing club chairs, the patio is a pure extension of the interior, sheltered from above.
The kitchen stands in a minimal-fuss open-plan design, centered on a massive island with thick dark countertop over white construction. Over the island, we see the glass backsplash, allowing for outdoor views in a surprising place.
Right around the corner, we see the living room awash in natural light via full height glazing at left. The stone wrapped fireplace stands flanked by built-in shelving, while the hardwood floor supports a set of contemporary furniture.
Here we have the bespoke wine cellar, flush with dark wood and entered through an all glass wall and door. A large curtain divides the room and obscures the wine cellar when not in use.
The bathroom features its own palette of neutral hues, with warm beige tile flooring and a dresser-style vanity that holds a large vessel sink.
The master bathroom is an expansive, open space with a large walk-in shower divided by glass, and a white soaking tub at center. The dual vanity runs the length of the room with sleek white cabinetry.
The pool stands tightly hugging the home itself, with an integrated jacuzzi at center. The patio is divided from the raised, sheltered portion by frameless glass edging.
Across from the home itself is this beautifully open pool house, replete with sliding glass doors for a design that integrates the outdoors.
