Geraldine Street


The Brief:

A narrow block at the end of a very narrow street proved not to be a challenge for the Signature Custom Homes team who were able to create a stunning and inviting 5-bedroom home for the home owners who were after an elegant family residence that was welcoming and inviting.

The Home:

This home sits on a narrow block, which gave way to clean, bold roof lines and fascias that surround the three level street entrance. The heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen, living and dining areas, which open up via bi-fold doors on to an alfresco area that was designed to be the ultimate entertaining zone, complete with outdoor fireplace, mosaic-tiled pool, alfresco kitchen and outdoor cinema.

Stone floors were used internally and externally to create a harmonious flow between indoors and out. Generously sized rooms feature stone walls, and a combination of timber and stone finishes to all cabinetry enhance the interior’s luxurious feel. The stairwell is a stand-out aspect, with huge glass windows that overlook a water feature, solid timber treads and a modern frameless glass banister. The home has five bedrooms, including a ground-floor guest suite and a hotel-like main suite with its own kitchen and entry door that can close it off from the world.

The home also features a fully computerised electrical and appliance-management system throughout, which controls everything from the lighting to the pool water feature from touch screen panels, the feature timber cavity sliding doors and glass and timber pivot front door.
