Luxury on One Level
With the grand formality of a French Provincial property, this sophisticated Dalkeith home offers luxury on one level. Sitting on a 1,100-square-metre block, this four-bedroom masterpiece showcases Riverstone’s meticulous attention to detail, with nothing spared or sacrificed.
“The clients requested a single-storey home of a very high level of finish, as you would expect in a Dalkeith residence,” Riverstone’s building and design consultant Diane Wainwright explains.
Designed for a well-travelled family with older children, it was important to the clients that the property be very secure, while offering each of the children their own personal space.
“This is why every bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom,” Diane says. “There is also a private, self-contained studio apartment for one of the children to live independently.”
Boasting an incredibly detailed front elevation, the property commands attention from the street, yet sits comfortably and elegantly in the established, leafy suburb of Dalkeith.
“The clients love French-style architecture, which is reflected in the front elevation, particularly with the symmetry and central wrought-iron gatehouse.”
Step inside, and the grandeur of the home is quite breathtaking, with a dramatic entrance foyer and high, detailed feature ceiling setting the tone for the rest of the property.
The wide central hallway features beautiful arch detailing, and a vast, long wall forms a backdrop to the clients’ extensive art collection, creating the feel of a chic French art gallery in the home.
