A formerly insignificant riverside bungalow in transformed into a gracious Italian-style villa. Before renovation, the house had a typical ‘60s look. A new, colonnaded front enhances the Italian character and gives the house a sense of depth. Sheltered loggias and arched openings enhance this riverside home which maximises the river outlook and provide easy indoor-outdoor flow. The double-storey entrance hall has tall columns supporting a curved stairway and balcony that lead to the master suite on the top floor.

River views are achieved from all the new open-plan living areas. The sleek, contemporary kitchen features a mix of stainless steel, lacquered cabinets and light-toned wood veneer. Stairs lead down to a new media room, which opens out to a riverside patio and a spa pool, where the existing garage used to be.
