Englehart Homes Project 11
This impressive home, built by Englehart Homes, exudes luxury and contemporary style, while remaining in touch with its environment. Located within a short stroll of the Maribyrnong River, this imposing property has a striking street presence and takes advantage of its picturesque surroundings.
Designed as a luxury retreat, the home’s exterior is finished in warm, earthy coloured tones and features modern rooflines that reflect its elevated aspect and expansive views.
The understated colour palette is continued in the interior, while natural materials, such as timber flooring, visually integrate the home with its adjoining parklands.
Designed to suit the site on which it sits and to meet the clients’ specific requirements, this extravagant Englehart Homes property combines expansive flowing spaces that harmonise in an elegant and modern setting.
Representing the latest in cutting-edge design, the home was intended to be not only luxurious, but practical and ideal for entertaining too. In its prominent location with predominantly traditional home designs, the colours, materials and rooflines complement the streetscape and make an innovative statement.
In order to comply with the clients’ wishes, the home includes plenty of room for year-round entertaining, both indoors and outdoors, and its neutral tones create a relaxed atmosphere.
The expansive floor plan opens to reveal beautifully-landscaped gardens and a feature courtyard, allowing maximum enjoyment of the alfresco dining experience. In response to its site, the residence features advanced passive design, while minimising the impact to its neighbouring properties.
Cabinets help to keep the home uncluttered and feature details accentuate quality and style. The design features spacious bedrooms, including a main with a luxurious walk-in wardrobe and en suite.
The living and dining areas, located on the ground floor, exhibit great attention to detail, modern appliances, sophisticated furnishings and a feature fireplace to give the home an air of opulence. The ground level also features an entertaining room with its own kitchenette bar for ease of living, and a standout circular theatre room to satisfy the clients’ lifestyle.
The theme is continued at the rear of the house, with a fully-equipped kitchen and butler’s pantry that lead to the large, open-plan living and dining area. A partially-covered alfresco veranda, ideal for entertaining guests during the warmer months, is accessible from the living/dining area.
The home’s striking aesthetic is continued through the entry and living areas, with a grand staircase in the gallery to lead to the upper level. The upstairs family room includes a central cantilevered fireplace and an adjoining kitchenette bar. A glazed balcony allows the owners to enjoy the coveted river and metropolitan views.
To conclude this entertainer’s delight, an aluminium standing seam curved wall conceals an additional theatre room, which has been designed to replicate and enhance the cinema experience.
Englehart Homes was established in 1980 by Ron Englehart to create architecturally-designed homes for discerning clients. Each project the company completes is of exceptional quality, original and efficient, and environmentally sensitive. Englehart identified a gap in the market for buyers who wanted to build their dream home without blowing their budget on architects.
Since its inception, Englehart Homes has received more than 100 industry awards. Today, approximately 80 per cent of Englehart Homes’ projects are individually designed, though most start out as a variation of one of the company’s display home designs.
Englehart Homes’ dedicated team is able to turn the dreams of home buyers into reality at an appealing budget. The company works with the simple philosophy that all houses by Englehart Homes should have strong street appeal and feature aesthetics, as well as an attention to detail that puts a smile on the faces of its clientele. With the belief that customer satisfaction is key when designing a home, Englehart Homes builds with an eye on quality finishes and innovation.
