Description: New home comprising four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two living areas, study, lift, gymnasium, open plan kitchen/dining, laundry and external built in spa. An expansive residence over three levels and over 70+ squares of floor area.
This residence is situated on the top of the cliff overlooking the ocean at the entrance to Port Phillip Bay. It was designed by multi-award winning John Wardle Architects, the building is truly a work of art. The exterior comprises a wide pallet of materials, including folded zinc cladding, shiplapped spotted gum, timber battening and timber-grain off form concrete. Full height glazed windows have been used in many areas to maximise views and natural light, these can be fully opened to the environment bringing the outside in. Inside has featured polished timber floors, blackbutt veneer timber joinery combined with imported hand selected Calcutta marble. The feature of the staircase is the Rattan reed screen imported from Malaysia and painstakingly hand woven through vertical stainless steel supports. Hydronic heating, lighting control systems, security and remote blinds add a high tech nature to control the building to the clients requirements.
