This high-end residence provides another outstanding case study of Monarch’s exemplary attention to detail and ability to overcome obstacles

The original building was an ex-government semi-detached home. The neighbouring property had previously undergone extensive building and renovation work and shared a garage wall. Therefore, extra care was required during demolition of this knockdown-rebuild project to ensure the new construction left minimal impact on the adjacent building.

Overall this home stands as an outstanding example of modern luxury living and boasts a number of highly detailed fixtures and finishes.

Some examples include: acoustic ceiling panels have been covered in material matching the carpets to help insulate against noise and provide design consistency throughout the house; oversize custom made sliding doors can be used to repurpose the open plan living areas and provide privacy when required; solid timber flooring and battens are complemented by the extensive use of New York carrara marble; external steel cladding was acid washed by hand in situ to create the dramatic feature entry; and Wee Jasper stone and travertine pavers ensure the luxury finishes continue outdoors.

A Cbus electronic system controls the lighting and security, as well as the automatic blinds and awnings. Solid core internal doors provide a sense of unseen luxury. While quality European appliances and carefully selected sophisticated feature objects complete the grandeur of this unique home.

This highly sophisticated residence serves as a superb example of Monarch’s ability to apply its significant skills and expertise across a range of construction applications.
