Three Level Modern Masterpiece


Chiswick In Brief…


  • Complete renovation and third storey addtion
  • Bright open plan living
  • Outdoor entertaining and refurbished pool

Its hard to believe this three-level modern masterpiece was once a humble little red brick home. The brief, to create a beautiful yet functional home that catered for this growing young family now and well in to the future.

The existing double brick home consisted of a single storey with a garage/basement level. Being in original 60’s condition, it was in desperate need of a complete renovation to achieve the modern living the clients desired.

The external façade, with dark acrylic rendered walls, monument windows and roofing, glass balustrades and spotted gum shiplap timber features is in stark contrast to the open, bright and airy internal living spaces.  The openness of the area is emphasised by the use of white walls and Blackbutt 140mm flooring throughout the entire home.

The existing first floor has been completely reconfigured to open plan living, the aluminium bi-fold doors and windows allow masses of natural light to enter the home throughout the entire day. The rear of the home opens to an entertaining area with feature timber trellis and overlooks a newly refurbished pool.

The modern galley style kitchen is the heart of this home.  The mirrored glass splashback, used for the length of the kitchen wall reflects light back into the living areas, whilst the highlight window provides a view to the treetops and nearby Abbotsford Bay. A White Attica Caesarstone benchtop and abundance of storage make this kitchen an entertainers delight. The wall cut out in the kitchen through to the adjacent stair void and feature pendant is a striking feature as you enter the home.

The new stairwell constructed of Blackbutt treads and painted risers lead to the brick veneer second-storey addition. This space includes a sitting room, bedrooms and bathroom.  The master bedroom suite located at the front of the property opens to a large private balcony. This takes advantage of the water views and allows for masses of natural light and ventilation. Through the custom barn door is a double ensuite with feature herringbone tiles.

Other features include new Actron ducted system throughout, full electrical rewire, renovated driveway and garage surface, with a handspray finish.
