Innovative design turns two-storey home on its head

This City Beach residence, striking balance between innovation and comfort, has been flipped on its head to create a contemporary and relaxed aesthetic.

Custom built and designed by Pindan Homes, the luxe abode features an upside-down layout that sees all the bedrooms downstairs and all the living spaces upstairs.

“The brief was to bring to life a sophisticated two-storey home that invited a relaxed, entertaining lifestyle reflective of the prime City Beach address,” Pindan Homes General Manager Simon Greenlaw told New Homes.

The master suite is as luxurious as a hotel room. It is spacious and has a raised bath and his and her walk-in robes.

“The ground floor accommodates a private home office as well as three beautiful bedrooms strategically positioned to enjoy stunning coastal views,” Mr Greenlaw said.

“For flexibility and functionality, a secondary kitchen with separate scullery and pantry is also on the first floor, opening the door to self-contained guest accommodation and a floorplan that evolves with the client as their mobility changes.”

 

The master kitchen upstairs has an impressive ornate fireplace centrepiece with stone slab cladding, alongside an expansive living and dining area.

The home also boasts a theatre room and wine cellar, adding more luxury to leisure times.

The oversized, spacious garage offers much space and is customised for caravan and boat storage.

“Every entrance was designed to have a presence; grand and bold in design, with an oversized feature lacquered entry pivot door and solid stonework flowing inside to the main hall,” Mr Greenlaw said.

With this in mind, the owners also included a 24m-long solar and gas-heated lap pool that is complemented by an outdoor kitchen and dining area.

Integrated into the home is an 18-zone Sonos audio system, to set the mood for any occasion in any part of the house.

“Sustainability and eco-friendly design were high on the agenda,” Mr Greenlaw said. “The home has a concrete roof with a syphonic drainage system and underground rainwater tanks feeding the WC and external taps.”

There is a grey water system that feeds into the lawn reticulation, solar control and laminate glass for sound reduction, as well as energy-efficient LED downlights and feature strip lighting.

The home also features internal lift access, high end security system with CCTV and an internal stone staircase.
