A creation by in-house architects Peter Hobbs and
Jean-Marie Gobet, this magnificent home sits on
a 1200sqm corner site at the river’s edge and was
designed to maximise the views.
Given the expanse of water in front, the owners
wanted to replicate the feel of being on a cruise ship
when in the living areas and on the front balconies.
Accommodating a large extended family, the
size of the home also required it to be high in
Spread over three levels, the basement opens
to a sunken front courtyard, while the pool and
spa sit on the first floor balcony.
The pool features underwater windows into
the games room and infinity edges that drop
away over stone cladding, making it a feature
of the front landscaping.
The positioning of the pool, the putting and
chipping green in the courtyard and the use of
timber and stainless steel balustrade all tie in
to create the cruise-liner effect.
Inside, luxury abounds with under-floor heating
in the kitchen, main living area and all bathrooms.
With the help of interior designer Jacquie
McPhee and Jo Taylor Landscaping, the overall
style of the house is contemporary, displaying
subdued but elegant architecture.
