“We wanted a practical home that would not only meet our individual needs, but also foster the intimacy we have as a close-knit family,” says the owner of this 590m2 contemporary double-storey farmhouse. Designed by architects, Karissa Barnett and Kathleen Ziervogel of KB Design (011 702 3136), the house features an open-plan kitchen, living room and dining area on the ground floor to encourage the family to spend time together. Upstairs there’s a pyjama lounge and four en suite bedrooms. A neutral colour palette, stone cladding and wooden columns give the exteriors a modern farmhouse feel.
