Stately Homestead – Rangers Valley


Built in 1835, this stately homestead nestled in Rangers Valley in rural NSW boasted rare opulence and grandeur. In need of a refurbish, the homeowners commissioned John Croft Design to reimagine the interior design scheme of the country home in 1989. Following the extension of the home, with an additional three bedrooms and two bathrooms, all of the existing spaces were refurbished.


Injecting light and warmth into the expansive home, the John Croft Design team sourced, manufactured and installed soft furnishings of grand proportions in rich textures that complimented the age of the home. Imbued with history, some existing furniture pieces were reupholstered to maintain the home’s integrity. The soft grey carpentry below foot was also specified and supplied by John Croft Design, in addition to the lighting that accentuated the interior and exterior.

The influence of nature is evident throughout the home with animal motifs and fresh flora peppered amongst the spaces, merging the flourishing gardens with the interior. Internal and external paints were selected in complementary citrus, mint and deep green hues to brighten and add depth to the rich, wooden furnishings.


Artfully fusing the natural environment with the interior, John Croft Design breathed new life into the stately homestead, achieving a balance between opulence, accessibility and country comfort.
