A new beginning, a chance to start fresh and do things differently.
When you have the ideal property situated in your home town, rather then move Oke Woodsmith designed and modified the existing home and brought the interior finishes to the modern day. The modifications were a reflection of the owners and their lifestyle and blended well with the existing, the slight changes enhanced the overall look and feel.
The couple contracted Oke Woodsmith, who suggested a new home might not be necessary. Moving would have meant exchanging their 100-foot lot frontage, and their view of a beautiful ash forest, for a smaller property in another part of town.
Inside, Oke Woodsmith borrowed many features from heritage financial institutions, including an impressive ash staircase that sweeps, on two sides, from the two-storey reception area up to the second floor. Flanked on each side by curved railings, the staircase leads to an open reading area with great expanses of gleaming hickory engineered floors. The reading area is tastefully decorated with leather furnishings and fitted with built-in bookcases.
