with grey and white. The curved roof is a striking focal
point and adds to the futuristic feel of the home.
The home's impressive entry is another key design
feature and one that overwhelms the senses. Featuring
a pond, timber decking, water wall and curved canopy
over the door, the area is not only eye-catching, it sets
the tone for the rest of the home perfectly.
Natural light pours into the home through bi-fold
doors and windows that span the entire rear facade
of the home. They allow for extensive views of the river
to the north-east from each of the four levels. The glass
also encloses the outdoor areas, which means they can
be used all year round.
In accordance with the owners' wishes, Glenway
Homes designed and built a concealed scullery/wet
kitchen and pantry behind the main kitchen. This area
serves as a place for food preparation and cleaning,
and keeps the main kitchen neat and tidy while
Because the owners plan to stay in this house for
many years to come, a three-level elevator was installed
to allow them easy access to every part of the home in
their older years.
Other standout features within this home include
the marine ply-lined ceilings in the outdoor living and
dining areas, balcony and entry canopy. Kitchenettes exist
at both the lower and upper levels, there is a cellar on the
lower level and the second garage on the lower level
makes for extra parking space.
BI FOLD DOORS AND
WINDOWS open up the living
area and maximise views of the river.
