Knowlman McDonald Project 1
This Hamptons-inspired home built by Knowlman McDonald beautifully showcases quality craftsmanship and bespoke design. The façade displays a grey and white colour palette, as well as stone features that give the two-storey home an impressive street presence. Complemented by a generous lawn and patio area, the frontage is at once inviting and functional.
Upon entry, the marble floors lead you through the spine of the home and towards the statement staircase. The vintage-style pendant light and pannelled walls add sophistication and luxury to the space.
The open-plan kitchen and dining area on the ground level is a social hub that takes advantage of the river views. The kitchen has ample space for the homeowners to cook and entertain, with a large breakfast counter and sleek white cabinetry. Fitted with a bar and stylish pendant lights, the space showcases a seamless mix of contemporary and classic design.
The internal dining zone flows seamlessly to the alfresco area, which features an in-ground pool, a gas fire and views of the Brisbane River.
The separate living area is a quiet haven for the homeowners to enjoy. With a detailed coffered ceiling and large windows, the zone welcomes an abundance of natural light and is the perfect place to relax.
The top level of the home includes six bedrooms, an office space and a large common area. Knowlman McDonald separated each zone to give the family functionality and privacy when required. The main en suite features a double vanity unit, luxurious bath, glass-panelled shower and stylish white cabinetry. The marble floors and benchtops are reminiscent of those found on the ground level, tying the home together visually.
Fitted with bulk insulation in the ceilings and external walls, and instantaneous Rinnai gas hot-water units, the home demonstrates Knowlman McDonald’s commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly building solutions.
