Having lived on this site in an outdated home that had gone through a number of renovations, retired couple Sam and Liz Emerson were keen to start from the beginning with clean uncomplicated lines for a new contemporary look. See Sam and Liz's story.
A classic knock down rebuild, the new home is designed for empty nesters who entertain regularly, so the home needs to be low maintenance and function both as an intimate space for a couple and as an open space for gatherings of family and friends.
To achieve this, large retractable sliding doors in the dining and living areas slide into cavity pockets opening the spaces up to entertain with ease.
Upstairs, guest bedrooms each have their own ensuite, plus there's a small kitchenette so guests can make tea and coffee without having to go downstairs. Taking advantage of the city views, the master bedroom is at the front of the house and features a full width balcony.
