Hedger Constructions Project 14
Located within the leafy inner suburbs of Melbourne, this Victorian heritage home has undergone a dramatic extension, effectively doubling the size of the property and allowing contemporary living to be achieved with ease. Designed by Michael Wozniak Architects and built by the team at Hedger Constructions, this impressive project offers a divine fusion of old and new, seamlessly blending a heritage façade with a modern and spacious interior, alongside impeccable finishes.
Looking to accommodate a large family, the homeowners were after a functional and versatile home with open-plan spaces to enjoy together. Thanks to an innovative, tri-level design which relocated the hub of the home to the rear of the property, this request was achieved with gusto. Hedger Constructions made clever use of functional spaces with a communal, open-plan kitchen, dining, living and study area occupying the ground floor.
The large island bench is a definite focal point within the home’s galley-style kitchen, topped in elegant Cararra marble and fitted with under bench heating. The kitchen’s sophisticated splashback shares the same Cararra marble, while classy pendant lights ensure the home’s centre is easily illuminated. Featuring Australian hardwood floors, custom cabinetry and an ample butler’s pantry, this hub has all the hallmarks of a modern, practical kitchen.
Through sliding doors, the sun-filled living room opens out to an immaculate landscaped garden, including an entertainment area, a stunning in-ground pool and outdoor fireplace.
The home’s first floor has been specially created to cater for the homeowners’ children. Featuring aptly placed bedrooms and bathrooms all on one convenient level, this dwelling offers the perfect balance of communal living spaces and private retreats. The spacious master bedroom includes a walk-in robe and en suite, with its strategic locale providing both privacy and peace from the home’s central family zones.
The main bathroom captivates in dark grey stone and an abundance of stylish marble. The durable and heat-resistant material is featured throughout the benchtop, basin, bath and shower walls, providing a sense of cohesion within the space. Refreshing pops of timber circulate throughout the lavish retreat, while the double shower and basin are opulent additions.
Venturing downstairs, there is endless opportunity for entertainment within the home’s subterranean level. With an expansive wine cellar, billiards room and underground cinema, this heritage home is a modern family’s dream.
