Designed by Vincent Interlandi, this highly contemporary private house in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia showcases interesting details, no matter what the standpoint. The street facade is partially closed, ensuring a high level of privacy, while the opposite side opens up towards the pool and backyard with the help of generous windows. According to the official press release, Myoora Road Residence features “an entrance foyer, a powder room, a large formal sitting room, a hostess kitchen, an expansive dining and informal sitting room overlooking a large beautiful private garden, an inground swimming pool and fantastic entertaining area. Other features include double remote garage with internal access, heating/cooling and alarm”. Currently on sale here, the residence could well accommodate a large family in its impressive five bedrooms. The interior design is highly modern and the rooms seem to encircle the focal point of the entire house- a large, double height living and dining space with spectacular features.
