Englehart Homes Project 18

This enviable, full-sized, four bedroom home is the product of Englehart Homes’ quality construction and innovative design work. Situated on a tightly constrained 380-square-metre site in a private school zone, this stunning Kew home was built for under $1 million despite these logistical challenges.

This modern, two-storey home packs in the flexibility of four bedrooms, multiple living areas, a butler’s pantry, study, an expansive main suite with a luxurious double en suite and dressing room, and a 10-metre swimming pool. These contemporary features culminate in an aspirational home perfectly suited for a large family.

The home’s striking half portal façade creates the illusion of a floating roof and is finished with western red cedar,contrasting monochromatic render and powder-coated metal louvres that optimise light and establish privacy. Intercom and security systems were installed for added safety, while a solar hot water system was constructed to minimise energy usage.

High-end finishes adorn the interior of this home, including dark oak floorboards, bespoke 2pac cabinetry, natural and engineered stone, and large format porcelain tiling. The kitchen is a prime example of such sleek fixtures, boasting a large, waterfall edge island bench, feature pendant lights, handless cabinetry and a full suite of Miele appliances. A strategically placed skylight floods the kitchen with light and provides a greater sense of spaciousness.

The open-plan nature of the kitchen and dining area encourages communal living and entertaining, while the living zone is sequestered off for a more relaxed, private atmosphere.

The undercover alfresco area is easily accessed through the dining and living quarters with large glass sliding doors. Not only is this transition between indoor and outdoor living made simple, but glass windows allow natural light to filter throughout the home. The outdoor space is bordered by the 10-metre lap pool – promoting an enhanced lifestyle of luxury and fitness.

The primary bathroom exemplifies the same pared-back opulence that features prominently throughout the home. A large mirror spans the length of the vanity, with soft LED downlights installed above. Soft-close cabinetry gives the vanity its modern, polished appearance.

The open shower is a particular highlight. A stone-like pattern and a recessed shelf modernise the shower, while the frameless design offers a safer alternative for a family with young children or elderly family members. The handheld shower head is a clever inclusion to direct waterflow and minimise water usage. The toilet is situated on the other side of the shower wall, closed off with an opaque glass door for privacy without compromising style.

This striking dwelling combines glossy, modern features with ease of efficiency – the idyllic home for Melburnians.
