Englehart Homes Project 6
Innovative and utterly stylish, the award-winning and energy-efficient City House from Englehart Homes is destined to become an Australian classic. With an impressive street presence, the City House has set a new benchmark in innovative and quality inner-suburban living in Melbourne.
With meticulous attention to detail and quality craftsmanship, the expansive floor plan looks out to the beautifully landscaped gardens and water feature, which sit alongside the deck outside.
Designed to maximise the intake of natural light, the home’s upper level contains two large bedrooms with spacious walk-in wardrobes, as well as a large covered balcony and a central bathroom.
On the ground level, an extra-wide entrance hall draws the eye past the glossy pale wood floorboards and high ceilings through to the open-plan kitchen and living area. To the left of the entrance is the main bedroom, which incorporates a retreat section where you can study, read or watch television.
Showcasing vibrant furnishings and awash with natural light, the interior is warm and inviting yet retains a sharp, sophisticated edge. A bold feature wall sits behind the bedhead and has been fitted with recessed wall panels and downlights, lending an opulent feel to the room.
Attached to the main bedroom is a generous walk-in wardrobe as well as a superbly-finished en suite. Featuring a stylish and contemporary aesthetic, the bathroom houses a large shower and a custom-made clear glass frameless shower screen, which blends flawlessly into the bathroom.
The large vanity holds matching his and hers square basins, which allows two people to comfortably use the space at the one time. Cream stone textured floor tiles are also featured on the bath surround, floor and shower wall, enhancing the room’s visual flow.
At the rear of the house is a fully-equipped kitchen, which includes a large island benchtop, a generous walk-in butler’s pantry and quality European stainless steel appliances.
The kitchen overlooks a large open-plan family and meals area, which in turn opens up to the alfresco dining deck via exclusive frameless glass bi-fold panels. Expanses of glass at the rear of the home provide unobstructed views to the pool and garden and soften the divide between inside and out.
The indoor/outdoor space allows the clients to enjoy the company of friends and family inside and out. By blurring and relaxing the distinctions between spaces, Englehart Homes has created a comfortable ambience in both the garden and the home’s dedicated entertaining spaces.
Outside, innovative design has been incorporated into the cutting-edge home. The alfresco extends out to a built-in barbecue zone, which is ideal for gathering with friends when entertaining.
The façade of the home utilises an eclectic mix of Daniel Robertson brickwork, feature render, Wunderlich flat slate-look terracotta roof tiles, and large eaves designed for Australian weather conditions, adding the finishing touch to this superbly presented home.
Influenced by the architecture and philosophy of Frank Lloyd Wright, The Saville has been designed to accommodate the Australian climate, lifestyle and landscape.
The home’s aesthetic is classic, contemporary and luxurious. Combining sweeping horizontal lines, wide sheltering eaves, and an expansive entertaining loggia, the design blurs the lines between formal and casual living.
The front half of the home features an impressive lobby, square-pillared study, formal living area with vaulted ceiling and a powder-room. Also located here is the main bedroom, which includes a resort-style en suite and double dressing rooms.
The rear of the home contains a spacious kitchen, which houses an abundance of cupboards and work areas, including a huge pantry with concealed appliance bench, making the kitchen an entertainer’s delight.
The kitchen leads onto the open-plan dining and living area, which is doubled in size by the adjoining loggia outside. Accessible through bi-fold doors and a kitchen bistro window, the loggia forms a visual and practical extension of the main house and is an irresistible place to eat, socialise and relax.
Concealed behind a wall of cupboards and separating the living area from the private zone is a separate wing, which includes a second and third double bedroom. There is also a luxurious main bathroom and generously-sized laundry.
The Saville is set to create a new precedent in luxurious, classic Australian design – a homestead of the future. With a number of design options along with Englehart Homes’ design flexibility, The Saville can be tailored to suit your needs.
