Thomas Archer Homes are proud to present their latest custom home from their landmark series. The Gallery expansive gallery themed spaces create a harmonious flow, uncomplicated zoning and clever connectivity in this beautiful family home. The use of strong architectural elements, clean lines and a cool grey colour palette create a moody aesthetic which is cleverly contrasted alongside a stylish array of organic finishes. The entry to the Gallery greets you with an undeniable impact from the moment you open the door. Three metre high ceilings provide a beautiful feeling of space, while you're met with a mix of elegant textures and wall finishes. The kitchen is truly the heart of this home, drawing inspiration from minimal contemporary architecture. It's been designed to feel like a beautiful piece of furniture rather than a busy, crowded workspace. The natural stone island bench is a standout feature in the space, with its bold, blocklike shape and beautiful tones and texture. A drop down bench top creates an informal meals area. The beautiful family room is set off with a fireplace and feature brick wall, adding to the warmth and relaxed nature of the room. Large corner stack of doors open right up, revealing a large al fresco area. The staircase is located at a central point in the home, looking up to a vast void surrounded by grand glass windows encasing the pool. The grand master retreat at the front of the home has been designed as a place of pure rest and relaxation, with its vast proportions and luxurious hotel like ensuite. Engineered white oak floorboards act like a runway from the top of the stairs running up the far wall, creating instant warmth and cosiness. Standing in the master bedroom, it's hard to ignore the incredible open ensuite that awaits. Separated by a gorgeous freestanding bath, full height natural marble tiles span floor to ceiling, allowing the bold matte black tapware and accessories to pop in the double shower. The upstairs area is bathed in natural light from the large glass windows to the upper level. The orientation of the home catches the natural light at any vantage point and allows the warming ambience to fill the home, creating a beautiful place to live.
