This immaculate home in Melbourne’s Toorak harmoniously blends antique and newly quarried stone in an outdoor setting. While Antique Salmon Granite and Antique Pewter Granite stair treads and paving create a warm welcome at the home’s entrance, they continue in the back garden, providing a welcoming invitation to enjoy the rear terrace, encased by overhanging vines, and providing shade and tranquillity in abundance.
In Australia no garden is complete without a barbecue; this one particularly special. It is framed in a combination of the Antique Granites, well paired with Golden Dune Granite, finished in handcrafted split face and honed textures, and lined with North Ankar Firebrick inside.
A delightful pool setting complements the design, crafted from Heron’s Egg Granite, complete with a pool wall containing custom honed ‘domes’, honed waterline tiles, bush hammered wall caps and a split face veneer. It is a true masterpiece.
