Hillcrest Ave, Kew

Owner-builder Laurie Anderson of Anderson Homes has excelled in the creation of this grand home that exudes character and defies its age by sitting comfortably in a street lined with heritage homes.

This stunning new build is large in size but clever design by Anderson Home design in conjunction with Stephan Kosa Architects has ensured a warm and inviting feel. The white facade of this double storey home is teamed with a slate roof and overall it is a look that is reminiscent of Hamptons grandeur. A delightful cornflower blue door adds personality and interest to the exterior.

The soaring 20-foot entry foyer, complete with elegant staircase and chandelier, is impressive and sets the scene for the scale of this home. On the right of the entry, a formal dining room showcases white panelling and grass weave wallpaper. A magnificent bird pendant light features over the dining table. Once lit, it illuminates exquisitely with detail.

On the left of the entrance there is a generously proportioned study. A central hallway defines the house and on the left there is a sitting room with magnificent window that frames a striking Kim Kennedy outdoor kookaburra artwork in the courtyard beyond.

On the right of the central hallway a grandly proportioned American inspired kitchen awaits. It includes American Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. It's a wonderful space for a family complete with butler's pantry, vast marble benches, and plentiful cabinetry that cleverly connects back to the formal dining room. The kitchen also contains a casual eating area that flows out onto an alfresco entertaining space which includes an enormous outdoor kitchen flanked by grey Moroccan tiles.

The lounge, featuring a beautiful marble mantel, is also at the rear of the house with an outlook of the outdoor and pool area. The pool and spa are impeccably detailed with stylish white hexagon tiles combined with grey grout. Lush green landscaping features around the property.

On the first floor, a generously sized retreat features on the left. There are then three bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms that all carry a theme of extensive use of marble and Bisazza tiles. The master bedroom at the rear of the first floor does not disappoint. It features grass weave wallpaper that provides both depth and interest, but undoubtedly the hero of the room is a glorious gold four poster bed. The adjoining luxurious master bedroom ensuite includes a Moroccan inspired blue and white tiled mosaic on the floor and marble on the walls. A magnificent oversized Italian bath adds significant glamour to this room as it sits in pride of place in front of the in-wall fireplace.

The house also has a lift that provides access to the basement floor which includes a bar (that receives natural light via a window into the pool), a cinema/games room, wine cellar, golf simulation room, laundry and large basement and workshop complete with car turntable. The basement can cater for up to eight cars and can be accessed by an automotive driveway ramp.
