The project description
Granite & Porphyry
Combining Hampton elegance and cottage charm, this luxury home is the epitome of Melbourne charisma.
Situated in the prestigious suburb of Canterbury, this project remains one of our favourite family homes to date.
With 2 young children and a home in desperate need of a refresh, the clients sought an outdoor area that would grow with their family and provide plenty of space for fun and entertainment.
In keeping with the essence of their heritage home, it was crucial that the design be timeless with a contemporary edge.
Our custom produced natural stone was the best solution to meet the specifications set by the Landscape Architect, transforming the space from tired to showstopping.
Rustic granite with a flamed finish was used throughout the project including paving, stepping stones and pool coping. This provided durability, strength and excellent slip and stain resistance.
For the sides of the house, between the stepping stones and the alfresco dining space, mixed porphyry was used in a filetti format to add sophistication and refinement.
Collaboration is crucial when looking to achieve the best outcome; our team loved working with Ian Barker Gardens as they know how to breathe life into a space through carefully curated landscaping.
Upon completion in 2018, the client was delighted with the results. We’re very proud to have been a part of this stunning project.
