When Zorzi Builders and Cross Design were approached with the task of revitalising this 23-year-old canalside property, the brief from the clients was to refresh the existing space while respecting the home’s classic charm.
Zorzi Builders carefully constructed the outdoor area and living spaces that backed on to the beautful Mandurah canals, to make the most of the uninterrupted views at its doorstep.
Thanks to close communication with the client and designer Brandon Cross, the vision was clear from the outset.
The renovation included enhancing the kitchen with acid-washed and wire-brushed granite benchtops, to tie in with the dark-stained American oak cabinetry and drawers. Two stacked slate feature fireplaces, marble-tiled floors, a slate-tiled cabana, and raked ceiling in the master bedroom add texture and volume.
Zorzi Builders and the designer also overcame the challenge of developing a temperature-controlled wine cellar built below the water level of the canal.
Their efforts were rewarded with a stunning result that features built-in wooden cabinetry, plus stylish marble floors and exposed brick walls that ooze rustic appeal.
Natural elements like these are employed throughout the home’s interior, to evoke warmth.
Making the most of indoor-outdoor living, the outdoor cabana is equipped with built-in cabinets and a wood-fired pizza oven for flexible dining options, and is bordered by lush manicured gardens and koi ponds.
The builders also kept several palm trees that the client was interested in retaining to complement the resort-style design.
To ensure the waterfront views were a focal point, floor-to-ceiling windows were introduced in the main living areas, along with semi-frameless glass pool fencing outdoors.
While the spectacular renovations were underway, Zorzi Builders’ project manager was in regular communication with the designer and clients.
The end result is a timeless, well-balanced, custom design that was achieved to the client’s satisfaction and delight.
Construction values for Zorzi’s bespoke modern, classic-style homes start at $2 million.
