Norton Builders Project 1
Built by Norton Builders, this custom-designed home needed to meet the homeowner’s architectural lifestyle requirements. This period home features a traditional façade with a modern, open-plan living interior. Space was created with bi-fold doors in the living and dining area, which allow for easy interaction from the kitchen and let natural light into the home.
Upon entry, the home features a formal sitting area, which is complete with plush carpet and a Jetmaster fireplace to keep warm during winter. Towards the back of the home, the atmosphere becomes much more relaxed. The living and dining areas offer easy-going and casual living. Featuring Victoria ash timber flooring, large bi-fold doors and an extra fireplace, the second living area is the perfect retreat to wind down with the family. The kitchen is tastefully designed with mahogany seating, trendy light fittings, stainless steel appliances and a large stone benchtop.
The home’s elegant bi-fold doors offer views of the outdoor alfresco area, which comes complete with Merbau decking and an adjustable Louvre sunroof. The traditional white façade and picket fence contrast beautifully with the outdoor timber decking to create a truly elegant property. This stylish home can seamlessly blend into any of Melbourne’s prestige bayside areas, and its meticulous attention to detail remains at the forefront of Norton Builders high-quality designs.
The home’s zoned living areas reduce the need for artificial heating and cooling, and LED lighting, a solar hot water system and a water tank make the home environmentally friendly and encourage green living. The property is finished with high-quality gloss paint work, James Hardie’s Linea weatherboards, a Zincalume roof and custom-designed leadlighting.
