A class of its own Tatura

Cover story By Kerri Thom­son In a pres­ti­gious cul-de-sac in Tatura’s Northlinks es­tate, stands a two-storey res­i­dence with so­phis­ti­cated open-plan liv­ing spa­ces of the high­est stan­dard. There has been no ex­pense spared on this prop­erty, with ma­te­ri­als and a colour palette of earthy neu­trals, which al­low the home to sit com­fort­ably in the sur­round­ings. Lo­cal build­ing de­signer Paul Ran­son’s in­no­va­tive de­sign and builder Mick Caval­laro’s su­perb crafts­man­ship have com­bined to cre­ate a dream home, ideally suited for en­ter­tain­ing and nat­u­rally cap­tur­ing the views of the wa­ter­ways and golf course. The in­side en­trance with cedar-lined roof and glossed tim­ber floor­boards dis­plays an open-tread stair­case of stain­less steel and jar­rah, that wraps around a stone-clad pier and filters views be­yond, and also draws you through the en­try hall and into the mul­ti­lay­ered liv­ing spa­ces. Here you are im­me­di­ately pre­sented with the liv­ing area, a room that pro­vides the home with an enor­mous sense of scale and pres­ence, with its soar­ing dou­ble-height ceil­ing open­ing to the mez­za­nine above. This void has an im­por­tant func­tional role, in that it al­lows the sun to pen­e­trate the build­ing through a se­ries of can­tilevered awnings with­out ex­pos­ing it to ex­ces­sive heat loads. To one side, im­me­di­ately ad­ja­cent to the liv­ing space, are the din­ing area and kitchen, and to the other, a highly-ap­pointed home cin­ema. The kitchen fea­tures Cae­sar­stone bench­tops and a con­trast­ing Cae­sar­stone splash­back, re­flect­ing sil­ver twin­kling high­lights, and White Pearl 2Pac cup­boards, a dish­washer, in­duc­tion cook­top and walk-in pantry. Up­stairs, a gallery-style walk­way leads to the mas­ter suite that fea­tures a walk-in robe, lux­u­ri­ous en­suite with dou­ble van­i­ties, se­cluded walk-in shower and over­sized bath with over­head sky­light for a spe­cial touch, and a liv­ing area with bal­cony. In ad­di­tion to the mez­za­nine over­look­ing the liv­ing space be­low, the tri­umph up here is the skil­ful use of glaz­ing, which cre­ates a framed land­scape view of the golf course from the gallery. Re­turn­ing down­stairs, hid­den be­hind dou­ble doors is the study with two built-in work sta­tions and a stor­age cup­board with slid­ing door. Run­way sen­sor light­ing il­lu­mi­nates the hall­way which opens onto three bed­rooms, two bath­rooms— both with dou­ble shower and frame­less shower screens— and the laun­dry with walk-in linen robe. Un­der the roofline, there is an out­door en­ter­tain­ing area with pol­ished ex­posed-ag­gre­gate con­crete, an in-ground pool and spa with mo­saic moth­erof-pearl bor­der tile and glass pool fence. There is also a three-car garage with re­mote con­trol, boat ac­com­mo­da­tion and a large ad­di­tional stor­age area. The nu­mer­ous ex­tra el­e­ments through­out this home are im­pres­sive. With the great­est at­ten­tion paid to ev­ery de­tail, par­tic­u­larly the way the de­sign cap­tures the view of the land­scape, this con­tem­po­rary build­ing is in a class of its own.
