With a louvred roof system and built-in schist barbecue and outdoor fire, the couple are well set up to entertain guests and family.
“I love the outdoor area,” says Ali. “We’ve also added a private recessed spa pool with architectural screening and an outdoor shower.”
John & Ali's favourite features
The couple added a few ‘wow factor’ features to their home including a natural oak wine cabinet, designed by John, that stands three metres wide and ceiling high.
The cabinet was built inside the ‘TV room’ which has been finished in dark blue tones to create a relaxed but sophisticated setting.
“It’s the most stunning room – and very snug,” says John. “It’s where we spend a fair bit of time in the evenings – not just because of the wine cabinet though!”
Upstairs, the master suite is another favourite room for both John and Ali.
“I absolutely love the colour scheme that the Landmark design team helped create – they did a fabulous job,” says Ali.
The suite includes a large walk-in wardrobe and a fully tiled ensuite with a doorless shower featuring glass panelling and a twin vanity with LED halo lighting.
“We originally planned to have our master suite on the lower level, but with the upper-level view being so fantastic, it soon became obvious that it was the better option."
And for guests, a second equally beautiful suite has been provided on the lower level.
It was also important for the couple to each have their own office – one upstairs, one down, along with a large double garage with a workshop.
