“…a design brief that allows maximum vision from front to back to take in the magnificent Murray River scenery, the living areas are huge…fantastic timber acoustic ceilings…concealed blinds…stunning stainless balustrading and alucobond cladding…to put it simply; this is a modern luxury home that has the ability to move gracefully down the river…an amazing project!”
