Type: Contemporary - Modern
Aranac are full steam ahead on this fantastic project. We have a great working relationship with the client and with the designers and are looking to on time with the practical completion date set for the end of March 2018.
The project is a complete renovation with substantial alterations and additions.
The original 2 story cottage has a few renovations in its history however nothing as comprehensive nor as complete as this one. From the rear boundary to the street curb the make over will bring together the best original features taking in the expansive views, garden and pool along with a with renovated and new open plan 3 story designer home.
On the lower level we have an extensive entertainment under croft area, a rumpus and bathroom plus wine cellar, all adjacent to the renovated pool and landscape garden.
Mid-level includes living areas, kitchen, study, Gym, double lock up garage laundry and powder rooms.
Upper levels has a grand Master suite with extensive views, a guest bedroom with ensuite as well as the main bathroom and 2 other bedrooms 501
Connecting the 3 levels is a featured custom steel and timber staircase showered in light from the roof widows, the build includes extensive custom joinery, underfloor heating in the polished concrete floors and bathrooms, custom skylights, floor to ceiling semi frameless slide-away windows and doors, large areas of featured Zink cladding and roofing, polished concrete to the lower floor and wide oak flooring throughout the main living and master suite areas.
The challenges to date have to include the very limited access to excavate the 130 m3 of rock and soil below the lower floor undercroft, to house the large deletion and recycled water storage facility and the need to do all of that while supporting the staged, partial demolition of the existing 3 story structure above and the absolute need to have zero impact on the adjacent attached buildings
We are keen to post photos of the finished product and will likely enter this project into the master builder’s awards when completed.
