Mention of a Blue Mountains retreat is likely to conjure up vivid images of rustic cabins and cosy weekend hideaways. The Hampton Farmhouse, designed by architects Noxon Griffen and built by Cox’s River Construction, pays tribute to this notion of an idyllic holiday while reimagining how a home can connect to its destination.

Every little detail of the Hampton Farmhouse has been carefully crafted to make the most of its primary function: to offer a relaxing retreat with a strong connection to the surrounding area. The owners had a clear vision for their sanctuary in the Blue Mountains; a space with an intuitive layout and a focus on the landscape rather than what’s inside. Which is something that Noxon Griffen delivered with gusto. It’s the kind of holiday home that’s designed for weary travellers to leave their urban lifestyle behind, walk in the door, drop their bags and simply be away.

The first impression of the property is striking – an angular roof with accentuated eaves ensures the home blends into the hillside while making a distinct contemporary statement. The architect’s focus on the orientation of the house was a clear priority. Dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows encompass the home, with the front positioned to take in views of the surrounding area and infuse the interior with natural light. The façade is primarily natural wood, and the window and door frames are no exception. Noxon Griffen chose to work with Trend’s Botanica series, which benefits from western red cedar frames that match the motif of the property.

A feeling of connection to the bushland beyond the windows is felt throughout each and every space. The vistas are a focal point of life in the home, whether that’s in the lounge reading a page-turner by the fireplace or waking up to views of the rolling hills in the expansive master bedroom.

As with any mountain property, year-round considerations had to be made. Warm summers and cold, snowy winters ensure the home experiences extreme conditions, which is why double-glazed windows ensure liveability and comfort throughout the year. Ventilation is also a key feature, and it’s available in abundance thanks to the mix of Aneeta sashless windows and Breezway louvres, which open seamlessly to allow fresh mountain air into the living spaces.

The overall feeling exuded by the Hampton Farmhouse is one of tranquillity. It is the kind of destination that is crafted for creating memories and reconnecting with nature – essential components for any dream getaway.
