The clients sought a well-crafted elegant family home
with substantial accommodation and lavish finishes.
They desired interconnection between the main family
areas and the alfresco dining and swimming pool as well
as extensive car parking space and manicured gardens.
Consideration for the Cottesloe site, which is
700sqm in area but only 15m wide, had to be adequately
addressed. And the overall design had to take into
account the character of the suburb.
In terms of interior finishes, the clients sought timber
paneling highlighted with subtle blended stone feature
walls contrasted against lighter cream tones on the floor
and walls to create warmth and intrigue.
They requested beautifully crafted cabinetry
throughout, as well as ceiling and wall details and all
those special touches that add character to a home.
An alfresco area with extensive benches housing a
built in kitchen and barbecue was another important
The homeowners wanted this space to be casual,
spacious and well appointed.
The team at Grandwood Homes has created a stunning
five-bedroom home that pays tribute to smart design
and craftsmanship resulting in a stand-out finish.
It is built across four levels, with a 160sqm underground
garage connected to a private home theatre.
The ground floor opens with a voided entrance that
sets the wow factor at 110 percent. It extends in one
direction out to the family and kitchen area which is
beautifully appointed with a stone feature wall, extensive
inlaid cabinets topped with black granite and marble floors.
INLAID TIMBER cabinetry
and granite bench tops make an
impact in the designer kitchen.
STONE FEATURE WALLS add a
sense of warmth to the main living area.
