Accomplished acquisitions The wayward breeze has carried many curious finds to Cordyline House, where fanciful treasures both old and new adorn the open-plan rooms. There’s a penny-farthing delicately hung above a contemporary sofa beneath the exposed-beams of the living room, and gently worn books and dressers are just as captivating. There are modern gems in the verdant garden, and here you’ll also find a fire pit surrounded by sweet wicker furnishings. The collectors Your hosts are marketing professionals originally from Mexico City. They live here with their two children and dog Jeronimo, and find the garden is a particularly sociable spot to gather. ##Unearthed The homey open-plan kitchen is framed around a slab-top island, in turn surrounded by scooped wooden stools. Down dark hardwood steps you’ll find the sweetly mismatched dining set in patterned greens and browns, but don’t be content to settle where you land – with wide glass doors opening out to the picnic-ready patio just beyond, you might prefer to refuel al fresco. There’s a guest house and play room to discover outside, and inside the boy’s bunk bed is lined with treasures. But the master bedroom’s ensuite is much more straightforward – a claw-footed tub in all-white brightening walls of taupe.
