Marcus Martin’s take on the classic ‘American Colonial’ style - grand residence.
Classics become classics for good reason. No other house more says “home” than the classic American Colonial. - Sprawling, but never hollow, cool and calm but never cold or uninviting.
These houses have many qualities about them. They have a richness, a fullness, they impart an overwhelming sense of positivity and wellbeing. These are generous homes in every way. This is legendary Toorak and South Yarra architect Marcus Martin’s take on this marvelous design style to which he brings his hallmark of restrained modernism.
The American Colonial has always provided a haven from the outside world, a place to return to at the end of the day, a house you know will always protect the things most precious to you - your family.
You instinctively know these houses. You immediately feel at home with them. And so you should - you’ve grown up with them. They are the home of every Hollywood movie and every memorable American tv-series you have ever loved, from Home Alone to Happy Days.
Springfields is a prime example of this sought-after style of home.
The current owners have called Springfields home for over half a century. This is a location and an architectural style perfect for putting down roots. Close to great parks, numerous golf courses, first-class schools and hospitals both public and private. Nearby are excellent shopping precincts. Malls such as The Pines, Greensborough Plaza and Westfield Doncaster, plus the boutique village shops, cafes and restaurants of Montmorency, Lower Plenty, Templestowe and Eltham.
Put your stamp on this wonderful property on the classic acre block of mature gardens in one of Melbournes most prized locations. Renovate the kitchen and bathrooms and grow your family and your future here. Springfields provides you with the ideal blueprint for success, because here at Springfields, it has all been done so so well before.
Typically, Marcus Martin gives you wonderfully spacious living areas where he seamlessly blends the formal and casual/family living rooms, bathing them all in natural light. One of the many joys of his architecture is that Marcus Martin was always very much aware of his subjects’ surroundings and sighted his homes to maximize light and minimize heat and cold spikes.
Marcus Martin designed homes are notoriously as comfortable in the heat of summer as they are in the coolest of winter evenings.
High ceilings with grand double-hung colonial windows ensure marvelous crossflow ventilation and open fireplaces add further practicality and character.
