Designed by James Rigney Architects and built by Brave Developments, this home features striking contemporary design features and has been created with luxurious family living in mind.

Integrating seamlessly with its outdoor areas, the home’s aspect maximises the views to the adjoining parklands and blends beautifully with the property’s surrounds. Privacy is ensured through the use of external aluminium feature screens, while hydronic heating and evaporative cooling provides a convenient means to moderating the temperature in the house.

Exceptional attention to detail was paid to every part of the home. There are four bedrooms in total; the main with an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe on the lower floor and the three children’s rooms upstairs; as well as a large office/study downstairs and an expansive ground floor living and dining area.

Located upstairs is the rumpus room with balcony access and a built-in desk, a music room/children’s retreat and the family bathroom.

The two floors are joined by a grand central staircase. Other outstanding internal features include the gas log fireplace with Caesarstone hearth, fully recessed cavity sliding doors, a built-in computer nook behind bi-fold doors and a downstairs powder room.

An external shower, ducted vacuum and alarm and intercom system further enhance the home’s functionality and help achieve the client’s brief for a home that is stylish and contemporary yet casual with a strong family focus.

The home has a striking contemporary façade, while the stunning landscaping – designed by Justine Carlile and completed by Vivid Landscapes – boosts the aesthetics of the home’s exterior.

Water-saving and energy-saving features were also a key part of the design. There are water storage bladders under the rear decking, as well as a solar hot water system and Viridian ‘Comfort Plus’ low-energy glazing on windows.

In spite of the home’s grand and impressive appearance, the project was completed to the clients’ tight budget. Brave Developments worked closely with the architect and the homeowners to ensure the various parts of the brief were fulfilled, without exceeding the agreed costs for construction.

Building in the south-eastern metropolitan Melbourne region, the business constructs between eight and ten homes each year. Established in 2000 by David Jaques and Bruce Teede, Jaques is now the sole owner/director of the growing and successful company.
