Glen Shian Lane, Mt Eliza (2011)

When the owners of this battle-axe block in leafy Mt Eliza originally approached us, it was to renovate their existing two storey home. They loved the home’s lines and siting, and the pool’s position and connection with the home. The existing mature-treed garden also added to its ambiance. Unfortunately, over the years neighbours homes trying also to maximise their view options have compromised the existing homes view lines. The fix for this was to raise the floor level - regrettably giving the death-knock to the old dwelling.

The new home was designed in the same location retaining the existing swimming pool and main features within the garden. The aim was to maximise floor height, stick to a tight budget, and develop simple lines that sat on the site with sympathy to the home being replaced. Downstairs are three bedrooms with ensuites, a rumpus room, kitchenette, powder room, laundry, and an undercover outdoor entertaining area located adjacent to the pool deck. Located upstairs is a living and dining area, kitchen, pantry, study, main bedroom, powder room, and sewing room.


With front and rear tiled balconies, provision for the installation of a lift in the future, and a double-garage separated by a breezeway, the home has been designed to suit the clients both now and well into the future. The home also features a Colorbond roof, rendered masonry downstairs, Shadowclad upstairs, glass balustrades and ironbark posts; products that are suited to withstanding bayside conditions without compromising on aesthetics.
