1 Officer Crescent Ainslie is a home that many people know. For some, the knowledge is subliminal, but their response to even the most basic description is: "I know that house! The one with the wavy hedge!" By accident, not design, this hedge has become a much-admired Ainslie landmark. A living sculpture carefully trimmed to keep its shape, it is a creation that improves with time and will continue to provide years of joy.

Custodians now for 22 years, Jane and Barb have tended to the wavy shape, and to the Tocumwal cottage tucked in behind, to create a vibrant home that reflects their passion for art and life.

A thoughtful and layered approach to home and garden is delivered harmoniously. Sunny north facing decking, garden plots and meandering pathways intermingle with shady established trees and the contoured hedge that reflects the mountains behind. The crisp, clean lines of the deep grey-blue of the dwelling achieve a visually satisfying balance with the organic, free-flowing garden, each aspect perfectly complementing the other.

The house has been enhanced and re-designed intuitively, crafted to embrace modern living and comforts without losing the Tocumwal appeal. Open plan living, high ceilings and generous north-facing windows and doors allow abundant natural light. Luxurious detailing used consistently throughout personalises the spaces, adding warmth and ambience. A clever selection of designer finishes creates harmony and cohesion.

The interiors are playful, the bathroom has a punch of Tanqueray green, while the family style kitchen splashes shades of Tiffany teal and Bombay blue. A bespoke floor to ceiling room divider showcases an eclectic range of old and new art and design, while also providing for sight-lines, airflow and separation of areas.

The creative and liveable approach to the interior design reflects the thoughtful consideration and attention to detail which underpins every element of the home. It features strong functional design that provides a wonderful balance between the practical requirements for living in comfort and the pleasures of enjoying airy, light-filled, beautiful open spaces that have a close connection with the outdoors.
