Anglesea 22 Melba Parade
SUNDAY INSPECTIONS BY APPOINTMENT The Dame of Melba, designed by Seeley Architects is a magnificent residence set into a hillside overlooking the rugged Anglesea coastline. This superb home was built right on the coast, so the main task was to create an open space with the use of noble materials that would withstand the elements and require minimal maintenance. The lower level is reserved as sleeping quarters for family and friends. Decks to the north and east branch off the living area. Sliding timber screens wrap around the Northern deck providing privacy from neighbours and shading from the sun, with the added benefit of beautiful patterned light being cast internally. Internal linings are drawn outward, with sustainably grown Hoop Pine plywood ceiling panels evolving into external soffit linings. The owners also entertain on the eastern deck, enjoy the extensive coastal views and remain protected by a south facing glazed sliding door. The master bedroom sits adjacent to the living area and enjoys elevated coastal views and private ensuite and dressing room. Built to an extremely high standard with features including a Cheminee Philippe fireplace, copper external fascia, native landscaping with moonah trees, gabion walls and copper outdoor shower. Magnificent!
