Englehart Homes Project 3

This site presented Englehart Homes with a unique challenge. Due to a significant slope of approximately 11 metres from the rear of the property down to the front of the site, a well-planned home design was required.

Difficulties to be overcome for the construction process were the adjoining houses in close proximity to the side boundaries; something that limited the depth of any excavation.

The clients were keen to take full advantage of the beautiful outlook from the front of the house to the Maribyrnong River. With this in mind, Englehart Homes ensured the home’s living rooms were located at the front of the house on the upper level, maximising the views. Numerous split levels and terraces were also incorporated to make best use of the slope and to minimise the depth of the excavation.

When you enter the home, one of the first things you notice is the abundance of natural light. Windows have been used extensively throughout the home, and were carefully located in order to make the most of the river views.

Internal courtyards provide natural light to rooms that do not have the benefit of the view to the river, while the swimming pool located in the rear courtyard provides a pleasant outlook from the rooms at the rear of the home.

A covered veranda overlooks the pool and provides a comfortable sitting area for use by the family in the warmer months. A feature fountain over the pool enhances this serene and relaxing environment.

The master bedroom is located at the rear of the house on the first level with views to the pool. The first level also incorporates a study, the two living areas, a dining room and a wide balcony with a view to the river, while the ground level has two additional bedrooms with an adjoining rumpus/media room. Wide sweeping eaves, a feature wall and glass balustrades give the home a strong street presence.

A number of unique client requirements were incorporated into the home, including a double-sided fish tank that can be enjoyed from both the study and family room. The lighting incorporated within the design accentuates the distinctive features.

Englehart Homes prides itself on building prestige homes of the highest quality while at the same time delivering maximum satisfaction with minimal fuss.

The long-established company has built up an enviable reputation and boasts many satisfied customers who are enthusiastic about the product and service Englehart Homes provides.
