A 3-Lot Development on an Elevated 809m2 Site
The primary objective of this project is to create a 3-lot development, necessitating the demolition of an existing house. Each lot carefully designed and built to offer modern, comfortable living spaces. The development is to follow a well-structured sequence of completion to avoid disruptions and streamline construction activities. With Lot 1 already completed end of April, this achievement will lay the groundwork for the subsequent lots. Each lot’s handover meticulously managed to maintain the overall project timeline.
The initial challenge in this project involved the existing home situated on an elevated 809m2 site. To make way for the envisioned 3-lot development, it was necessary to demolish the existing house, clearing the site ready for civil and construction works to be carried out.
Lot 1, the first completed lot, spans a footprint area of 266m2 and boasts a carefully planned layout divided between the ground and first floors. The design prioritises space optimisation and contemporary aesthetics, ensuring residents experience comfortable and stylish living.
As one enters Lot 1, the convenience of the thoughtfully located carpark outside the front entrance becomes apparent. The entrance leads to a short hallway that converges into two main directions. To the right, an expansive living area welcomes with large windows and sliding glass doors, inviting ample natural light into the entire space. To the left of the hallway are two sizeable bedrooms, one of which boasts an ensuite bathroom. Additionally, a full bathroom on the ground floor ensures convenience and functionality for all occupants.
Ascending to the first floor, a magnificent and spacious lounge area with large A-frame windows, glass sliding doors to the external deck unfolds. The windows and glass sliding doors flood the room with natural light, creating a warm and inviting ambiance whilst providing stunning views of the surrounding environment. The lounge area stretches across to the dining and kitchen spaces which are superbly finished to exude contemporary elegance. Also located on this floor is the master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, offering a private retreat, ensures comfort and functionality while still feeling connected to the heart of the home.
Throughout Lot 1, a simple yet contemporary colour palette has been carefully applied to accentuate the beauty of the home. The interior and exterior showcase a modern and elegant aesthetic. Materials were selected for their quality, durability, and ability to enhance the contemporary style.
Interior materials – black powder-coated aluminium framing, glass balustrades with stainless steel handrails, laminated flooring, and engineered benchtops enhance the modern feel of the property. Bosch appliances in the kitchen add both functionality and style. Additionally, all bathrooms boast underfloor heating and are elegantly tiled from wall to floor, while bedrooms feature plush carpeting for comfort.
External materials – Colorsteel roofing pitched at 40-45 degrees ensures durability and weather resistance. The facia and spouting complement the roofing, contributing to the property’s sleek appearance. Vertical shiplap timber weatherboards exude a timeless charm, while the aluminium joinery and double-glazed windows provide energy efficiency and ample natural light. James Hardie panel adds a touch of contemporary elegance to the façade, glass balustrade fixed to the wood deck enhances safety without obstructing scenic views. Additionally, a timber retaining wall adds both visual appeal and structural integrity to the landscape.
With Lot 1 completed, its thoughtful design, contemporary colour palette and use of quality materials have set the standard for Lots 2 and 3 which are in progress and continue to take shape. The significance of careful planning, meticulous execution and attention to detail in creating a stylish and functional residential development that meets the demands of modern living and quality of life for its residents.
