Stunning Mountain Sights
With possibilities of endless views to die for, the owners of this property embarked upon an update to the property in order to expand the vistas of the mountains beyond.
The owners had originally built the home and resolved to remain for the foreseeable future. The resulting client brief was simply to optimize their views to the mountains beyond and to remove existing walls, hard surfaces and gardens and have them replaced with an updated, easy-to-maintain alternative.
Many of the existing plants and palms were removed in order to reinstate the views and free the gardens from the clutter of certain plants that had seen better days. Existing timber sleeper walls were substituted with core-filled block walls along with some original face brick walls clad with Clancy random ashlar walling, which wonderfully complemented the surrounding bushland.
Existing stamped concrete, exposed aggregate paths and pool coping and surrounding paving were also withdrawn or suitably prepared. New Ravello travertine was laid and offers offered an easy-to-maintain surface with a lived-in, organic feel. Glass fencing was also utilized to facilitate the visual transition between the different outdoor areas and ensuring an unobstructed view.
The only serious challenge faced by the clients was choosing where to sto,p as they loved the new look and feel of the outdoor areas, and being an acreage lot, could have gone on and on.
