Englehart Homes Project 14
Situated on a 500m² site, the Karinya is a luxury four-bedroom home that showcases the very best in modern living. Designed and developed by Englehart Homes, the two-storey abode offers a wealth of cleverly conceived inclusions that maximise comfort while saving space.
Showcasing exceptional contemporary-Australian design techniques, the Karinya boasts impressive street appeal. The carefully crafted façade includes full-height double-glazed aluminium windows, with complementary, detailed landscaping nearby. Cedar cladding conceals the garage entrance, while bold rendered projections express strength and substance.
The property is oriented in accordance with the principles of passive design, while the use of high-quality building materials ensures it can withstand Melbourne’s mercurial climate.
Featuring a towering void, the spacious entry is saturated in natural light, which creates an airy and welcoming atmosphere. The open-plan family, dining and kitchen area is designed for ease of movement, with each space flowing seamlessly into the next.
With emporite-finished custom-made cabinetry and a range of state-of-the-art Miele appliances, the kitchen is simultaneously stylish and functional. A contemporary trio of large orb-shaped pendant lights draws the eye and highlights the glossy stone benchtops beneath.
Featuring a second gas cooktop, a microwave and a coffee machine, the adjacent butler’s pantry is a convenient inclusion that makes meal preparation and cleaning up a breeze.
Bi-fold glass doors connect the dining room to the covered alfresco area, which includes a stainless-steel barbecue, LED downlights and a ceiling fan.
Located on the ground level, the expansive main bedroom includes high-quality woollen carpeting and a spacious walk-in wardrobe. Featuring porcelain tiles, a double vanity and an elegant freestanding bathtub, the sumptuous en suite is akin to those found in first-class hotels.
On the upper level, an external metal louvre screen shields the balcony from the sun and the street to create a comfortable and private outdoor room that’s perfect for relaxing or casual entertaining. The home also includes a family bathroom, powder room and laundry, as well as an additional upstairs living area and a double-car garage with an adjacent storage room.
Englehart Homes’ commitment to excellent craftsmanship and intelligent design is evident in the Karinya. From the full-height, custom-designed Italian windows that accentuate the impressive 2.95m-high ceilings, to the American-oak timber screens that define, connect and visually enlarge each space, the Karinya is a standout example of the company’s exceptional design and construction acumen.
Established in 1980 by Ron Englehart, Englehart Homes aims to create architecturally designed homes for discerning clients. Englehart was inspired to start his own company after identifying 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 the company’s projects are individually designed, though a number start out as a variation of one of its display-home designs. With a focus on quality, efficiency, originality and sustainability, the dedicated team are able to turn home buyers’ dreams into reality at an appealing price.
The company works with the simple philosophy that all houses should have strong street appeal and pleasing aesthetics. The team believe that customer satisfaction is key, and they build with a keen eye for quality finishes and innovation.
