The team at Lyden Builders have won the “Cbus National Medium Density – 2 to 5 Dwellings)” award in the Master Builders ‘2014 National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards’ held on Saturday 23 August, 2014.
The 2 homes that were entered are located at 658 Oceana Drive, Tranmere.
Set on the top side of Oceana Drive, these two townhouses create an imposing sight. The concept behind the exterior design was to construct two homes that whilst very different in appearance, compliment each other in their individuality. This has been achieved by utilising a modern design with a classic, contemporary feel.
The front townhouse has a spacious layout. Set out over 223m2 of living space, this home is designed to capture the stunning views over the Derwent River from the large floor to ceiling feature windows at the front of main living area. The superbly appointed kitchen has been constructed using quality materials and is finished in subtle and stylish tones. This spacious open plan area also has a dining room off the kitchen and deck which is accessed via stacker doors that allow this area to be opened up for entertaining and truly combine indoor and outdoor living. This beautiful home boasts three bedrooms, bathroom, ensuite and separate powder room on the upper level and a study and powder room on the lower level.
At the rear of the block the second townhouse is just as impressive in its simplicity and style. This home also has inspiring, unimpeded views of the river and Mount Wellington.
Offering 229m2 of floor space, this home is cleverly designed to use every available centimetre. From the spacious open plan kitchen, dining, lounge area to the expansive master suite incorporating a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and study, this home is designed to exceed its owner’s expectations.
Whilst there is a beautiful deck at the front of the property which is accessed either via the living room or the master bedroom, it is the well thought out back deck/courtyard area that is perhaps the more inspired. Allowing the homeowners to entertain in a secluded area away from the sea breeze Tranmere is renown for, the view through the living area and out over the river and mountain is uninterrupted.
Two bedrooms, a bathroom and separate toilet on the bottom level complete this stunning home.
Both townhouses have double garages and striking, easy to maintain landscaping with exposed aggregate driveways, giving them superb street appeal.
