Luxurious Design & Build
This large three level, open plan, waterfront, luxury home has been designed and built to make the most of the amazing views of Sydney Harbour. Consistent with all our homes, an emphasis has been placed on superior attention to detail for all finishes and a mixture of natural materials has been used to create a luxe homely feel.
Built on a very steep site with limited access, the demolition of the existing house and excavation of the lower ground level and pool were challenging but through the use of innovative methods and machinery, this obstacle was easily overcome.
The garage is built close to the front boundary and access to the house is via a bridge that extends over a beautiful central courtyard which includes a BBQ area and outdoor dining, all surrounded by lush tropical planting. Once inside the home, the abundance of natural light is evident through the large floor to ceiling glazing and the void area that links the ground and first floor.
A key feature of the home is the central open riser staircase with feature steel balustrade as well as the lift, which walls are clad in large format sandblasted natural limestone slabs. The upper two levels of the house have European Oak floors and the lower ground floor is polished concrete. All flooring has hydronic underfloor heating to keep the house warm in Winter whist also being energy efficient.
The project included a fully tiled, wet edge swimming pool and extensive retaining walls & landscaping. The advantage of Jakin Homes & Pools is that all works were undertaken simultaneously with the house construction. The pool concrete shell was one of the first elements to be built, allowing our team to take advantage of the access once the existing house was demolished.
The same sub trades such as tilers, plumbers, renders etc. were used in the internal home, exterior works and pool to create a seamless finish from inside to out.
