It has evolved from its coastal origins to suit Australian country and urban settings. It's less ornate and more down to earth than a traditional Hamptons look. It features larger verandahs for protection in hot summers and is often reminiscent of Queenslander homes.
Characterised by more shade and less ornamentation, Australian Hamptons homes are charming and well adapted to the Australian way of life.
