The paneled front entrance and the wide lobby act as an introduction to the house’s fascinating progression through private and open spaces.
A solid focal point of the home is the living room with a centrally located fireplace whose imperial black granite stone hearth is a subtle but imposing feature and imparts a sense of regal warmth to the living space.
Recessed ceilings, wall niches and feature painted walls further define the well-proportioned rooms and reinforce the isolation of space. Flow through zoning creates a feeling of space yet the privacy is maintained by keeping private areas separate from the living areas.
Luxurious finishes include granites and timber to complement the sophisticated entry façade, opulent marble floor and wall tiles in the kitchen, and aged oak timber strip flooring. The complementary earthy colours and the cool elegance of the marble combine to create a warm yet sophisticated atmosphere.
Double doors are used freely to open up the floor plan from entry through to study and master bedroom, culminating through the feature glazed doors to the kitchen/family room opening the house to the outdoor entertaining area.
The kitchen features stainless steel Miele appliances and an island canopy range hood, making it an appealing entertaining space and ideal for the home cook.
Maximum solar efficiency is achieved through the careful layout, which also captures the extensive garden views.
The house opens to a spacious courtyard with abundant light and a pleasant garden background. This courtyard fills the rear part of the house with light and is a dramatic feature beyond the entry. Feature mouldings and limestone cladding give the garden a warm Mediterranean feel and act as a stunning visual complement to the house.
The result is a home that provides year round comfort and acts as a private haven for the owners.
