Welcome to The Oakford: Modern Farmhouse Living in Perth

Farmhouse living in the city? Why not? Introducing The Oakford, Shelford’s latest modern farmhouse display home in Perth. We have designed The Oakford for individuals and families who want to enjoy modern relaxed farmhouse living on a generous parcel of land, including large corner suburban blocks.

The Oakford design is flexible and customisable, making it work for any block and lifestyle. It has a functional layout ideal for larger families and larger blocks. It is also designed for anyone looking to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle without moving far from the city

Stylish Simple Modern Farmhouse Living

A stunning 465-square-metre home, The Oakford is the perfect example of contemporary farmhouse living, marrying modern simplicity and tranquility with style. The Oakford is all about relaxation – the perfect family home you can fill with wonderful memories.

At Shelford, our focus is always on our clients. We listen to what they want and need, ensuring we always adapt and change the design to suit their lifestyle. The Oakford started from our standard rural designs, and we worked together with our clients to adjust the home design to suit the block location and how they wanted to live. Our flexible and collaborative service allows our home designs to be as customisable as they can be. This allows our clients to modify them according to their needs. Our team of talented experts also has the versatility to understand and interpret our client’s vision into a custom design floor plan unique to each client.

Upon finalising the interior design of The Oakford, the Shelford Design Team created the ultimate contemporary acreage home without compromises, in which a family can love and create memories as much as they can. Whether you have an acreage or a large corner block, The Oakford is a timeless design perfect for modern family living.

Charming and functional features

The Oakford is the ultimate modern farmhouse with charming features that are both stylish and functional, perfect for that relaxed modern farmhouse lifestyle.

Expansive and modern elevation

The Oakford has a strikingly modern elevation with expansive windows, a raked verandah, and a textured finish of the bricks and stone cladding. The garage layout to the side is hidden, so it has not detracted from The Oakford’s modern elevation features, allowing the home front to take center stage and stand out from the outside. With the garage facing away from the front street, the internal shopper garage entry naturally flows into the home’s design.

The games room incorporates the home’s overall open floor plan layout, flowing seamlessly with the featured dual fireplace between the games room and dining and kitchen area. There is an abundance of natural light streaming into the room through the expansive windows and large sliding doors leading into the undercover alfresco area. The powder room to the side makes this entertainment area fit its multipurpose function. This is indeed a space where you can entertain all year round, whether you are throwing a party or just lounging around to enjoy the relaxed surroundings.

Raked ceilings

Upon entering The Oakford display home and into the central living area, the first thing that will capture your attention is the incredible raked ceiling that creates a sense of light and space. The open-plan layout of the living area also emphasises the feeling of having a wide open space. The spaciousness, though, does not hinder the warm and relaxing vibe that the house exudes. As soon as you enter the home, you get a sense of calm.

This kitchen is designed for style and practicality with ample storage space, a side scullery, and an easy-access walk-in pantry – all you need to prepare your meals in a dedicated space where you can get messy away from the guests’ eyes.

The servery window allows you to serve food easily in the large alfresco areas when hosting your outdoor dinners and barbecues. The open-plan kitchen seamlessly flows into the dining and family area from the outside in, taking in the views from the front to the back of the house.
