Situated within a prestigious gated community, this substantial waterfront home pays homage to a British Colonial style of architecture combining formal design elements of the Victorian era with fresh tropical details inspired by the West Indies such as palms and pineapples. This family home has been designed and built with attention to every detail. The coffered ceilings involved three different cornice profiles, VJ infills, chandeliers on winches and a complex lighting plan. The wall panelling was custom made onsite by carpenters with a router and a table saw so that all joins were concealed and working perfectly to wall lengths and raking areas in the stair void.
The grand double staircase is finished with a customised chippendale balustrade, painstakingly coated onsite by painters. The flooring includes grey ironbark herringbone parquetry with boarders to the foyer and living, with long boards to hall areas. The kitchen includes benchtops in White Fantasy quartzite with a lambs tongue edge profile and overhead doors with a hand made cross detail and LED backlighting.
Due to the site conditions, the swimming pool required significant engineering with screw piers at 14.5m deep. The pool was finished with an 8 metre long acrylic window and tumbled travertine tiled surrounds in a French pattern. The detail involved with this project provided an opportunity for all trades involved to showcase their craftsmanship, creativity and problem solving skills.
