THE PROCESS

Director Spiro Skiadopoulos was contacted by an investor keen to work with him to undertake a development project in Melbourne’s leafy eastern suburbs. They agreed to partner to develop a block of land into two standalone houses and began a search for the right opportunity.

 

An older style home on a corner block in the suburb of Ashburton came onto the market. After assessing its growth potential, the partners agreed it was an attractive opportunity and purchased the property at auction. From here, they interviewed architects, planners and builders and began to create a scrapbook of design ideas, floor plans, fittings and finishes.     

 

After seeking quotes from multiple builders, they awarded the build contract and works commenced when. The existing home was demolished and the block was excavated to allow the construction of two contemporary triple-storey townhouses.   

Spiro oversaw the project from start to end and construction was the whole process was documented and filmed for the popular Build me a Home series on channel 72

 

 

The result

A breathtaking contemporary design, lavish finishes and generous proportions define this exceptional near-new luxury family home. Boasting an enviable location walking distance to Ashburton Village and station, schools, parks and the aquatic centre, this large corner block was excavated to allow two 3-storey, 4 bedroom townhouses to be built.  

 

High ceilings and floor to ceiling glass give a sense of space and capture abundant natural light throughout. A vast open plan living and dining room features a modern gas fireplace and dark timber floors. Appointed to the highest standards, the gourmet kitchen boasts stone waterfall benchtops, premium Miele appliances and a large walk-in pantry. The living areas open to a private northeast garden with a covered alfresco dining terrace. 

 

A light-filled double bedroom with designer ensuite and walk-in robe is situated downstairs, providing a luxurious guest room or extended family living potential. Upstairs, a generous master suite offers an opulent ensuite, walk-in robe and balcony with city views. Two further upstairs bedrooms have built-in robes and share a stylish bathroom with freestanding tub.

 

This home is impeccably appointed with a security system, video intercom, powder room, laundry, three car basement and spacious wine cellar or storeroom.
