This prestigious architectural home is situated in Lombardy Estate, Pretoria
Although the front façade of this home appears statuesque there is an understated tranquil elegance when one steps into the home with the art studio display space giving away some the interior design cues.
This is open plan living as it is done in Sweden and Scandinavia. Plush neutral tones like the monochromatic floor tiles and flush mount down lighting and ceiling to floor windows and sliding doors emphasizing the use of natural lighting and thus enhancing the idea of spaces without defined boundaries and volume. The open plan layout is also a ploy to generate a natural flow without compromising spaces by defined décor.
Both the lounge and dining room connect to the covered patio with its built-in braai thus extending entertainment outdoors. The close proximity of the kitchen to the patio becomes a beneficial factor.
The lounge and dining room share the same space and enjoy lighting through the same panoramic views and the double volume space created by the staircase brings a sense of tranquility.
The custom kitchen is a master piece and a display of effective minimalism and ergonomics. The Butchers block countertop surrounding the latest gas hob and oven grabs centre stage and renders the Caesar Stone countertops obsolete as worktop surfaces.
The lack of grab rails or handles on the custom cupboards further enhances the notion of ergonomics and function but at the same time, it is obvious that there is an enormous amount of organised storage space. The kitchen is so uncluttered and seemingly featureless which is in part due to the fact that all the major appliances are housed in the huge scullery where there is more storage space.
The floating staircase is a feature and also leads to the bedrooms and the family TV room set on the intersecting point to the bedrooms. The double volume space thus also allows for perfect natural lighting.
The master bedroom manages to capture the essence of the architectural philosophy as minimalistic which has the notion of creating tranquility and lighting. The endless amount of built-in cupboard space dissolves any dead space as function. The custom fitted en-suite bathroom is a marvel of texture, color and the latest and best in plumbing accessories. A balcony extends the bedroom, perfect for a private breakfast.
The remaining four bedrooms are just as plush in every respect with no detailed spared or compromises made. Endless built-in cupboards and yards of floor space are in the order of the day and one of the bedrooms has the benefit of an equally custom fitted fashionable en-suite bathroom.
There is a study for the home executive that determines his or her own working hours.
Family vehicles are secured in a three car automated lock-up garage.
