This project was brought to us via a well-established and long-standing client with whom we had worked on four previous projects and developed a strong working rapport. Marking a significant opportunity for our company, this project was the first new house we’d been commissioned to build in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs in almost ten years.
The norm for this area of NSW has largely been renovations to existing properties, so this project posed a very exciting venture yet undoubted challenge for our team. The first issue to arise once we’d embarked on the build came by way of our onsite excavator, who informed us that the site on which the house was to be built had formerly been a petrol station. Further demolition at the site revealed two petrol tanks buried below ground. We arranged for these to be filled and sealed by a professional service before we continued with the construction.
This house is truly one of a kind, in part due to its exquisite features, which include a modern glass walkway and skylight, as well as Carrera marbling in the bathrooms. What also makes it unique is that it is one of the only houses on the street with off street parking. We had to ensure that both the design and layout worked effectively together in this case as we were working within a block width of only 4.2m.
The overall effect lends a wonderfully spacious appearance to this property, thanks to clever designs which make the house appear double in width.
