Riverbank Residence


A contemporary home that exudes presence on Riverbank Drive, designed by Arcline Architecture and built by Newson Construction.

As we enter the property, we are drawn to the warmth of the exterior cedar cladding and craftstone veneer, and the sheer panes of glass, bringing the outdoors in and the indoors out.  

The decorator has dexterously linked one room to the next, using texture and colour.  A delightful green front door leads into an interior filled with earthy tones of warm wood, stone and slate.  Classic grey furnishings and green pot plants complement this palette.  Cleverly positioned artwork link the pops of colour in the kitchen with the rest of the house.

There is so much natural lighting in this house, that it is a delight to see what was chosen for artificial lighting.  The industrial themed kitchen downlights are softened with traditional lighting in the living areas.

The kitchen is perfectly proportioned from the large island and scullery to the conveniently placed wine fridge at one end of the kitchen to the breakfast nook on the other side.  There is a place for everything and everything is in its place!  The cabinetry is neat, implying calm and order behind the doors and there is just enough open shelving to display precious items.

There will be no “bathroom blues” in this house.  It has modern hardware, like the rainfall shower heads, a super tub and modern blue tiling.

The bedrooms are large and airy, the furnishing is soft.  Both the master bedroom and guest bedroom have ensuite bathrooms and immediate access to the outdoors through sliding doors.

Outdoors, the expansive covered deck encourages alfresco dining and breathtaking views.  The space is clad with an abundance of cedar and is complemented with the earthy texture of the Craftstone cladding. 

The retaining wall pens the hill whilst serving as a place to post lighting for the path around the back of the house.  There is plenty of lawn to the front and the side of the house for children to play.  

This is definitely a place to call home.
