From its sweeping front wall and Palm Springs-inspired garden to the Venetian rendered façade with its deep window reveals and inviting entry curve, the Calli Residence has a calming Californian vibe. But there’s more to this sumptuous home than its sleek profile and chic aesthetic.

Beyond the western red cedar door and double-glazed windows – orientated to capture the northern sun all year round – unfolds an intelligent, intuitive home designed for contemporary Australian family life. Specifically, for our clients’ family lifestyle. At 415m2, it’s light and spacious, with four bedrooms, multiple living areas and an understated elegance accented by rich textural elements that belie the home’s family-friendly functionality.

The stylish Venetian render carries through the hall into the expansive living area, where the inviting fireplace awaits for cosy winter evenings. Oak stairs lead up the floating single-spine staircase to the children’s zone, complete with its own bathroom, living retreat and study area.

The peaceful rear garden and terrace connect with the butler’s pantry via a servery window that opens directly onto the loggia for quality time around the pool. Every element and detail has been conceived and crafted to make day-to-day family life anything but everyday.
