THE term ur­ban oa­sis is epit­o­mised in the cus­tom-built Hori­zon by Lat­i­tude 37.

The grand scale of the house and its cap­ti­vat­ing out­door en­ter­tain­ment zones cre­ates a sense of lux­ury rem­i­nis­cent of a re­sort. Lat­i­tude 37 de­sign man­ager Chris Sfil­igoj said the home made an im­me­di­ate im­pres­sion.

“The two-storey en­trance, lo­cated on the side of the prop­erty, im­me­di­ately opens up through a 6m tall win­dow look­ing on to the pool,” Mr Sfil­igoj said.

De­signed for a slop­ing 900sq m cor­ner block with over 4m of fall, the prop­erty has been de­signed around the cen­trally lo­cated swim­ming pool, which pro­vides a breath­tak­ing back­drop to much of the home.

“The ground floor master suite over­look­ing the pool, cou­pled with its lav­ish en­suite and walk-in robe, is a stand­out fea­ture,” Mr Sfil­igoj said.

“The use of the cen­tral court­yard to place the pool and im­por­tantly al­low cru­cial north light to pen­e­trate into many rooms of the home sets the prop­erty apart.”

The home steps through four dif­fer­ent ground-floor lev­els to en­gage with the fall of land, min­imis­ing the need for earth­works and re­tain­ing walls.

The chang­ing floor lev­els also al­low vary­ing ceil­ing heights, ad­ding vis­ual in­ter­est and zon­ing of dif­fer­ent ar­eas.

Liv­ing spa­ces dom­i­nate the ground floor, in­clud­ing a kitchen, din­ing and fam­ily zone that flows to the out­door en­ter­tain­ing zone.

Out­side, the swim­ming pool is the cen­tre­piece, while the built-in out­door kitchen and cedar-clad ceil­ing to the out­door area are wel­come in­clu­sions.

The ground floor also fea­tures a stand-alone liv­ing area, pro­vid­ing plenty of space for even the largest of fam­i­lies to re­lax and gather with friends.

A mu­d­room, laundry and cel­lar, which has in­ter­nal win­dows look­ing on to the kitchen, com­plete the ground floor.

Up­stairs, three bed­rooms, in­clud­ing one with a walk-in robe and en­suite, are ac­com­pa­nied by a rum­pus room and cen­tral bath­room.
