TENNYSON POINT HOUSE
Warrane recently had the pleasure of overhauling the entire ground floor, front and backyard of the Tennyson Point House. Built roughly 40 years ago by a concreter, the layout and finishes deserved a modern spruce up. A beautiful balance was created between the owners request for a moody, semi-industrial vibe (much like Warrane's work on Moonshine Bar at Hotel Steyne in Manly) and the need for a more open, flowing floor plan which would allow for entertaining the owners large extended family.
The homes exposed brick internal walls and archways were accentuated with portions being painted in a white render paint allowing for a clean, light backdrop to the home's new furnishings . The layout through the entire downstairs was altered for a new open plan kitchen and separate butler's pantry. The kitchen would now lead to the family's formal dining room, which also sectioned off to allow for a home office. A 'man cave' was a top request and Warrane created a warm and inviting pub-like atmosphere with a home bar stocked with two Vintec wine fridges and 7 lineal meters of liquor bottle storage.
The kitchen, now being the home's centre and heart, was fitted with appliances from Winning Appliances, including a luxurious Falcon freestanding cooker and tapware by Brodware. The project features custom joinery throughout, including 3 meter high hardwood barn doors to allow the option to segment the formal entry and lounge rooms from the kitchen space. The doors featured detailed iron work to finish the look. The loungeroom is now a welcoming family space with a Sculpt wood burning in-built fireplace and a custom leather lounge from Project 82. The room's new surround sound audio by Bose top off the experience.
