This latest addition to the Terrey Hills Equestrian scene takes its influence from the traditional California style barn. The brief was to create a building that felt as if it had been built 80-100 years ago, have a distinctly equine feel and reflect the feel of the Napa Valley region in California.
The palette of exposed timber batten cladding is left to the elements, slowly greying into the landscape. The recycled brick paving through the internal breezeways continues this language.
The stable is nestled into a newly landscaped hillside and is surrounded by paddocks, traced along the hillside by traditional black painted post and rail fencing.
With a mix of extensive evergreen and deciduous trees across the acreage, this site captures the changing rural beauty through the seasons.
