5 Pambara Court Donvale Fit-out


Jemson undertook the complete manufacture and installation of the interior fitout of this exquisite architecturally designed home.

Spanning a spectacular 5 acres in Melbourne’s east, this architecturally designed home leaves a conscious green footprint, uniting tranquil native spaces and modern luxury with access to elite schools, shopping and public transport.

Current owner Ingo Reisch told WILLIAMS MEDIA, “We wanted to celebrate various architectural styles, rather than do away with the old and just do it all in a new style. The property offers so much, from enormous privacy, space, sheer luxury but also a real sense of being part of nature and all so close to the city, local shopping centres, schools and the main freeway, we are actually having remorse selling.”

WMK Architecture worked extensively with the owners to design the updated layout, with a brief to create a large open space to bring the family together, captures the stunning views, offers a modern style work space and catered for a second alfresco area, which has been used all year around. The large pond connected the living, work space and alfresco area together, whilst there are clear separations via massive glass sheets.

Design-focused cabinet maker, Andrew Molnar, of joinery company Jemson, went beyond the normal cabinetry works, using recycled timbers reclaimed from the demolished part of the house as bench material, ceiling cladding, pantry door handles and even for one of the custom-made bathroom shelf units.

The open plan configuration embraces family/living/dining drawn together by a designer Cheminees Philippe fireplace and further united by an epicurean kitchen crafted for the consummate home chef with top of the range V-Zug appliances and 60mm thick marble waterfall island bench and splashback. Awash with light, this super space integrates with a separate under-roofline alfresco area with outdoor kitchen.

A sensational mezzanine overlooks this inspiring open-air hub with ceilings soaring to 5.7m high, welcoming a BI library with backlighting plus reading nook.

Displaying 4 generous bedrooms plus a study and 2 luxe bathrooms with frameless rainhead showers in the main home, 2 with ensuites incl baths plus a barn with bed/studio and bathroom. The master suite is laid with Sydney Blue Gum floors and occupies its own level encompassing a parents’ retreat with kitchenette and ground level access. Flaunting custom designed fully fitted WIR and ensuite with dual vanity and bath.

The property also boasts a separate converted barn with mezzanine accommodation ideal for a teenager or home office, with kitchenette and bathroom facilities plus storage and workshop.

Jemson is proud to have manufactured and installed all the joinery in this epic property that recently sold within a month of being listed by Jellis Craig Real Estate.
