Leach Street


The Brief:

The owners of this home wanted to create a large space that they could enjoy with minimal maintenance as they entered a retirement phase of their lives. Capitalising on fantastic views from their front door, the owners were after a luxury hotel feel with all the features and space appropriate for their large, frequently visiting family. The owners spoke to a number of builders, but decided to go with Dave and the Signature Custom Homes team after falling in love with their ‘relaxed style’.

Awards and Media:

The Home:

Characterised as a small private hotel, this home has been zoned to provide a comfortable luxury apartment feel with a hotel suite for a bedroom and luxurious living space for entertaining. The home includes a Home Theatre, stunning wine cellar/bar and the upper living area and balcony. The home has magnificent ocean views and a 6 star energy rating so you can enjoy amazing sunsets in a luxurious, comfortable environment. The house is built over three levels, with the ground floor opening via a wide passage way to an open plan kitchen/meals/family room, swimming pool, and covered al fresco area with its own outdoor kitchen.

Rich natural products and finishes such as German limestone graces most of the floors and external paved areas. Walnut timbers are used in the cabinetry and on the staircase as well and contemporary exterior finishes such as cladding and textured rendered walls complement practical inclusions such as the double glazed window suites. Fine details are everywhere in this magnificent home from the custom designed stainless steel letterbox to the Ceasarstone bench-tops and in the walnut cabinetry throughout.
