A Grand ReVision

24 March 2020


Blending contemporary design without compromising the beauty and charm of this heritage home in Hunters Hill in Sydney, is a triumph that Gardner Design and Construction can celebrate long into the 21st century.

A complete renovation has realised a sleek and modern interior. State of the art appliances, curved kitchen benchtop, detailed cabinetry and strong, bold details have given this beauty a new lease of life and brought her into the modern era.

The outdoor space has also been transformed, incorporating a neutral palette with calm colour accents to ensure a relaxed ambience. The home has several pairs of French doors opening onto the sunny terrace and an intimate garden where the subtle beauty and neutral tones of Sareen Stone’s Tavira Alfresco Limestone tiles complement the natural oak floorboards inside. The pool area is just as stunning with ocean green pool tiles and sand-like tones of Tavira Limestone providing a sub-tropical oasis.

Tavira Alfresco Limestone is a lightly coloured limestone with an elegant yet relaxed ambience echoing the tones of sand on the beach. A brilliant choice for any outdoor area be it for entertaining, external walkways and pool surrounds, due to its beauty and lightly textured finish ensuring it works perfectly for both covered and uncovered outdoor spaces. Tavira Limestone is also available in a honed finish allowing for a seamless flow from indoors to out when combined with Tavira Alfresco.

Enhancing the charm and tradition of the origins of this home, Sareen Stone’s Charcoal Grey Granite Cobblestones provide a beautiful welcome statement as you enter the property. Aside from charm and beauty, these cobbles also offer low maintenance and lasting durability with a non-slip flamed finish perfect for high traffic areas such as driveways, pathways and alfresco areas, in either residential or commercial environments.
