D3 Project 7
Featuring a fabulous selection of materials and a functional layout, this outstanding home is the product of D3 Building Design’s genius and Peter Rees & Sons Builders’ quality construction. The esteemed building designers are masters at executing brilliant ideas and designs, and this Mornington residence is no exception.
With a location close to the seaside, the home appropriately exudes breezy coastal luxe. From the white cladding to the pitched roof, front verandah and feature stone wall, the façade speaks true to an authentic modern coastal style. Beautiful detailing takes the home’s street appeal to the next level, including the barn-like panelling on the garage door and the black window frames, which create a subtle contrast against the dominating whites. An exposed brick pathway adds texture and warmth.
If the front façade isn’t inviting enough, the entryway will welcome the homeowners and their guests alike. Its cohesive design is immediately evident with the continuation of the stone against one wall, an eye-catching feature that works in perfect harmony with the refreshingly white walls and light-coloured timber floors.
The master bedroom on the second storey is the ultimate place to retreat and unwind. Slatted shutters suit the home’s overall style while providing views of the surrounding neighbourhood. A sliding door connects the bedroom to the en suite – a clever choice to avoid disrupting the room’s available space. The commodious bathtub, double vanity and patterned floor tiles bolster the home’s opulence.
The home’s hub sits at the rear of the house; an open-plan living area dominates the space, replete with a stylish kitchen, dining area and living room. The kitchen boasts more of the Hamptons style, attempting – successfully – a modern take on this classic approach with neat shaker-style cabinetry, matte-black handles and tapware, and fully integrated appliances.
Of course, no high-end modern kitchen is complete without a butler’s pantry; additional storage and bench space can be found in the light-filled pantry through the inconspicuous sliding door.
Again, a subtle combination of materials and elements in the living room creates a captivating space to impress. Tongue-in-groove panelling forms a feature wall to back an entertainment unit, ticking the box for coastal vibes, while the white-painted brick fireplace epitomises contemporary chic. Not only is the living room an aesthetic delight, but it is also generously sized, perfect for entertaining and relaxed everyday living.
Directly connecting to the living room is the undercover alfresco, which acts almost as an extension of the indoor living area, with ample space for outdoor furniture and a barbecue. There’s even a spot for a wall-mounted TV and a ceiling fan so the homeowners can enjoy the alfresco throughout the year for any occasion.
The back deck steps down to a glorious pool and separate recreational room, bringing this home to the height of luxury. The recreational room showcases a bar with a window that connects to the outside, so drinks can be enjoyed in the warmer months by the pool. A red brick water feature over the pool reflects the pathway at the front and is framed by fresh greenery.
