Architectural Excellence by Design
The overwhelming feeling of design excellence permeates every aspect of this home. From the reclaimed bricks, perfectly placed to retell their stories, to the east/west glazing which creates a beautifully airy feel throughout the day, 42 Curban is a complete standout in Balgowlah Heights and continues to set the benchmark in both style and execution.
Built to absolute perfection the design brief here was to recreate a home which looked as though it harked back to the days where minimalist pavilion design reigned supreme. Without a single element of detail untouched, every aspect of the home has been well considered and is intended to highlight the vertical lines, and gorgeous raked ceilings at every turn.
In a suburb proliferated with two-storey homes where bulk and scale often sees elegance sacrificed, 42 Curban takes single-storey living to a higher level. With street appeal paramount to the design process, the hand cut sandstone boundary tells a tale of rustic charm and the stunning craftmanship on offer.
With each approach, the breathtaking use of modern juxtaposed elements, with rural timeless appeal, combine to generate a homely warmth as the front door nears. With every step the home reminds you that easy family living is at your fingertips, and within reach.
The vaulted ceiling in the living room is cleverly accentuated with mood lighting, highlighting the ceiling height and the beauty in the construction process. With the open plan pavilion concept in full affect the fireplace nurtures, while the veranda beckons. Punctuated at every turn by an array of native Australian flora the seamless flow of indoors and outdoors is effortless and provides an endless array of liveability options throughout. With this part of the home entirely north facing, the feeling one gets is one of rest and rejuvenation in this wing.
The kitchen has been gracefully placed at the helm of the home’s layout with the nearby casual dining perfectly positioned for mealtime comfort, while the formal dining is spectacularly perched to cast views across the pool and invite guests towards the terrace and alfresco beyond.
Outdoors the swimming pool has been cleverly designed to maximise the afternoon westerly sun and is surrounded with enough paved decking to permit even the most demanding of entertainment needs. Nestled in its palmy surrounds, the poolside ambiance is resort-like and rounds off what can only be described as a perfect family compound for summer ahead.
By way of accommodation the bedrooms offer a spacious and private retreat for family and guests. With the large main bathroom providing a feeling of harmony with the environment, the bedroom wing feels tastefully complete and harmoniously executed. The master bedroom is a complete standout in the home and will overwhelm even the most discerning aesthete. Elevating the home to a level of design excellence worthy of praise, the portal window has been carefully placed to both accent, and accentuate the sensual space that is the master suite.
The large flat 727 sqm approx. block is family-friendly, pet-friendly and is optimised perfectly via the two-street frontage to permit off street parking for 3 cars and plenty of toys. Coupled with Solar panel 8kW (installed 2 years ago) the home provides all the modern conveniences one could desire. By way of location there is transport on the doorstep, quality coffee via a 400 metre level stroll, and parks, beaches and nature walks all within reach. If you have never experienced the Manly to Spit nature walk, then wait no longer as it connects to nearby Fisher Street footpath.
