The owners of this new home had reasonable requests. Firstly, being situated near the river the home needed to had to take full advantage of the available views. As empty-nesters they also wanted a low maintenance home with classical style, one that would accommodate visitors comfortably whilst separating sounds and living zones from their main living space on the lower level. that incorporated a hotel style master suite and adjacent plunge pool.
These requests may appear simple enough… but when working with a small site with a 4m diagonal forward slope, and consideration for future sub-division of the site, the job becomes a little more challenging!
Overcoming obstacles to meet a client’s brief and deliver a beautiful home is the testament of both skill and experience and in this case the outcome is a true credit to builders, Artique Homes who ticked all the boxes on the client’s wish list and then some.
Blending traditional Australian Colonial style features such as bull-nosed verandahs, frieze work and timber battened gables with a light ‘Hampton’s style’ palette of natural materials that includes cream feature stone and white painted balustrading the home has a lovely classical elegance.
Working with natural slope and shape of the site the home has been built over three levels with a three car garage, gym and cellar at the lower level, the main open plan living areas and master suite on the mid-level, and guest rooms and additional living areas on the top floor. Incredibly this beautiful home also includes a music room, theatre room and activity room and has achieved a 7.5 star energy rating.
