Englehart Homes Project 1

Designed and constructed by Englehart Homes, this home incorporates a fine balance of contemporary furnishings with classical architecture. The design is classic, contemporary and luxurious; combining a classical façade with a thoroughly contemporary interior. From the outside, the dramatic neo-classical elements are deftly handled to provide a pillared entrance that is both light and inviting.

Inside, a wide foyer and entry hall with a vaulted three-metre ceiling immediately creates a sense of arrival into a light and luxurious space.

A range of interior architectural features is found throughout the home. Recessed ceilings, floating bulk-heads and vaulted spaces imbue each space with a different mood.

Divided into two distinct parts, the front half of the house offers an impressive lobby, square-pillared study, formal living and dining area with lofty vaulted ceiling, powder-room, hotel-suite proportioned master bedroom, resort-style en suite and double dressing rooms. The second half of the house is an exciting reveal from the pair of glazed doors.

For this home, the kitchen was part of the open-plan living space. Deep storage drawers throughout keep the work surface clutter-free and it’s this clever use of space that also enhances the size of the room. It’s the seamless integration of Miele stainless steel appliances and the choice of colour scheme – white surfaces offset by black accents – that further highlights this illusion of space.

An island bench with sink dominates the space, allowing plenty of room to prepare meals. A standout design feature here is the oversized pantry with concealed appliance bench, supporting the sleek, clean line look of the kitchen.

The ergonomic kitchen projects the entire home into a contemporary era, while still integrating the rest of the residence.

A wing that comprises second and third double bedrooms, a luxuriously appointed main bathroom, and generous laundry are cleverly concealed behind a wall of cupboards separating the living area from the private zone.

A large part of this home’s appeal is the seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces. Every room is awash with natural light.

The expansive kitchen, dining and living area is effectively doubled in size by an adjoining veranda. A continuation of the low-pitched tiled roof and dramatic overhanging eaves make this outdoor room a visual and practical extension of the main house.

Accessed from full-height frameless glass bi-fold doors, it maximises space and is an irresistible place to eat, socialise and relax. A gas fireplace within a stone pillar provides an interesting backdrop and warmth during cooler nights. An adjoining barbecue unit is ideally located for outdoor entertaining.

The architectural features combine with fine Daniel Robertson brick work, and terracotta tiles ensure the house makes a stylish impression to the street.

There were many environmental considerations explored throughout the home. Special glazing, external door seals, clever room zoning, recessed entry and concrete slab were some of the low energy features.

The result is a home that blends a modern interior with a classical architecture. With top-of-the-line fittings and a carefully crafted floorplan, the home is a delight to live in. Englehart Homes has created this dwelling as a place to experience luxury.
