Borell Street by Bagnato Architecture
Australian architects Dominic & Marie Bagnato designed the exceptional Borell Street residence in Melbourne, Australia. Sited on a site with a total area of 2,700m² the house itself is 1,160m². It features 6 generous size bedrooms with walk in closets, 8 bathrooms, a main bedroom with walk in closet, private bathroom and a central free standing open fireplace, open plan kitchen and further amenities like an indoor pool, gym, steam room, tennis court and 2 garages.
Hidden behind a rendered masonry, a “central gate leads you to an undercover portico that is two storeys high and reveals a building clad in walnut travertine stone tiles” which “resembles arrival to a luxury hotel where you are greeted by a door man to usher you into the luxury hotel that waits.”
“Adjacent to the entry is the main bedroom which is situated on the corner of the building […]. Inside, a private luxury room provides ample space for a king size bed which is surrounded by a custom designed upholstered bed head. The room is large enough to accommodate a central free standing open fireplace […] and a television. Behind the fireplace is a parents retreat with views to the Paul Bangay designed garden, where morning sun can be soaked in. […] The room also includes an island cabinet that houses a jewellery draw and a place to sit and get dressed.”
“The rear of the houses is connected to the inside by an undercover patio area housing a built inB.B.Q. & kitchen area another fire place and grassed play area for the kids. An indoor swimming pool, gymnasium & tennis court provide all the resort facilities you would expect from a luxury home that has been designed as a luxury boutique hotel.”
