The Strand Applecross
The entry porch has granite treads and risers leading to lacquered entry doors flanked by Tasmanian oak rod lined columns. Through the doors is the formal entry extending 9 meters as a central core with granite lined curved suspended stair leading to the middle level containing the kitchen, bar, dining, meals, family, Audio visual room and guest area. The guest area is complete with its own bathroom. The focal point of the entry void is the huge dome with concealed lighting in the centre.
The upper level has all the bedrooms, study and activity room all having their own bathroom and opening out onto their own balcony.
The 3 levels of the home are accessed by both the staircase and a lift.
The balconies have a mixture of cedar lined ceilings and concrete rendered beams.
The kitchen and 2 bars are fully appointed with the latest appliances contained within curved lacquered veneer doors and granite bench tops, servery and up stands. The bathrooms are fully tiled with marble and have lacquered doors and granite bench tops with frameless glass shower enclosures.
The main floors are all marble slab tiled with brass inlays and granite tozzetti scattered throughout.
The home is fully automated with C Bus lighting and appliance control providing mood lighting and fully integrated floor heating, air-conditioning and alarm monitoring.
Spectacular views across the river to the city are visible from every room in the house and full advantage has been made available by the large expanses of single piece glass panels and segmented curved glazed areas throughout. The round FRC columns provide the structural support needed allowing for large open areas of uninterrupted views.
This landmark home has been put together with expertise and enthusiasm bringing to life the desires of the client and designer. A masterful and timeless project.
