The Sunbury Entertainer
Having the perfect space for entertaining is what completes a home and you don't have to have a large area to create one. This recent project of ours is the ultimate out-door entertainers delight, complete with wood fire pizza oven and fully functional outdoor kitchen and alfresco area. But the surprises don't stop there - there is something special around every corner.
Set on a small block, this stunning Boutique Hampton’s style home needed an outdoor area that fully utilised the available space to create the perfect outdoor living area that can be used throughout the year regardless of time or season. Our landscape designers worked to make use of all available space, no detail was left unchecked.
Upon entering the property, you are greeted with stunning greenery. Silver Birch trees are used to provide shade for the house in the warmer months and let the light into the house during the Winter. Statement, over-sized pots from Martin Kellock are featured in the front garden area with a selection of Native Violets and Liriope planted throughout to give that splash of colour. These are highlighted at night with landscape lighting to create a real focal point.
Surrounding the front decking is custom fabricated raised steel garden edging with draping greenery which softens the hard edges. The edging has been powder-coated to ensure it’s longevity for many years to come. A custom designed steel letterbox was fabricated and installed to give that extra wow factor in the front yard.
When we venture around the rear of the house we find features such as custom designed, decorative laser cut screens and gates to partition off the various spaces creating privacy and 'rooms' within the area without closing it in. Bamboo plantings along the fence line create a strong vertical screen for privacy in the small space available and private nooks along the side of the house invite the wanderer to sit and relax in peace and solitude. 'New Techwood' composite decking boards were laid in the front and rear areas to provide our clients with a maintenance free alternative to timber decking - no further maintenance will ever be required.
As frequent entertainers, our clients wanted to ensure that they could take their entertaining outdoors, regardless of the time of day or season. Our landscape designers created an outdoor space which is the envy of the neighborhood. A stunning entertainer’s outdoor kitchen was installed by our friends over at Lime Tree Alfresco complete with outdoor fridge and oversized barbeque. A wood-fire pizza oven was installed in the back of the garden to provide both warmth and functionality in the cooler months.
Outdoor lighting has been used throughout the garden to highlight plantings and to create a beautiful soft warm light so the garden can be enjoyed at all times of the day or night.
This stunning entertainer is the envy of the neighborhood and the heart of the family home. Outdoor living has never been this good!
