Capturing impressive river views and of innovative design, this Iconic Main River Manor has undergone numerous extensions and complete external and internal renovations customized for our client’s lifestyle and growing family, for future generations to enjoy. From the street, the home spanning 3 blocks on Main River makes a stunning first impression.
Maintaining the character and history of this home was paramount considering our clients emotional attachment, having grown up in the home as a child. Our clients required that it be brought back to its former glory by way of total refurbishment, re-design of living space arrangement and extensions to address the previous dis-functional layout issues. The home was quite large in its original state however the expanse of its site allowed for more bulk without dominating the river or street front. The river facing facade of the home was quite symmetrical, the extensions were designed to maintain this balance and match the original styling.
This is a grand home, the family plan to live in for quite some time so achieving the adequate balance between luxury and functionality was vital. Hence the ground level was re-configured to offer relocation of kitchen, and a central vantage point for supervision of children playing outside. The inclusion of 6 spacious bedrooms, 5 opulent bathrooms with marble tiles and European tap ware. Multiple living & outdoor areas, a complete extension of the rear of the home, extending 3 car- garage, adding a pool room with kitchenette. Adding a balcony to the master bedroom and downstairs an inviting alfresco all year-round entertaining space, for the family who loves to entertain and appreciate life’s finer things.
With a strong emphasis on luxury, added texture and depth of different materials to the Façade and Exterior, complemented by new imported ‘Curvado Terrocotta’ roof tiles from Spain. As you would expect and appreciate, all materials, finishes and fittings used were of superior quality. American Oak timber floors with European stain, Travertine tiles, granite cobble stone to driveway, granite herring bone to all pathways.
Creating a home of comfort and indulgence, this Iconic Main River Manor has been an absolute pleasure, working closely with our clients has been so rewarding to achieve a magnificent home they will enjoy for many years to come.
Working closely with Tomkins Constructions at the later stages of the design process allowed for constructive decisions on various building materials, construction methods and design detailing paired with total transparency throughout the construction and finishing stages.
The continued communication and continuity of expectations resulted in a fantastic end product thanks to Luke and his team at Tomkins Constructions.
