Modern Luxury: Easy Living Without Compromise

When creating liveable premium spaces, partnering with like-minded manufacturers is paramount to achieving ultimate convenience and comfort for the end-user. Mazzei’s latest Ferndale Road development is precisely that.

Developed by custom home builder, Mazzei, in collaboration with architect Dan Webster of Webster Architecture, Ferndale Road pushes the boundaries of modern residential design, and sets the bar for customised, premium living just that bit higher.

The impressive facade that offers a glimpse into the front sitting area sets the tone for this unique home. Yet, it’s what is behind the full height custom timber door that makes living here a delight.

“Liveability is really important and so while the exterior of a home is vital, we spend the majority of time on the inside of the home,” explains Dan. “Connection between spaces, and flexibility in how different parts of the home are used is crucial to its longevity. And this is what we design for – long-term homes for families that grow and change over time.”

While the first floor has been fitted out with three bedrooms, a study and rumpus room, the ground floor is where daily life happens. Developed for ultimate convenience and the bespoke preferences of the occupants, the home is fitted out with V-ZUG kitchen appliances: a combi-steam oven and combair oven, an induction cooktop, rangehood and dishwasher. All defined by deluxe aesthetics and intelligent yet simple usability.

“A couple of years ago, we decided to assess our appliance manufacturers to find a brand that would align with the type of homes we wanted to build: premium, custom and high-end. With their technology, usability, aesthetic and bespoke capabilities, V-ZUG stood out above everyone else,” says Zeb Woodhatch, director at Mazzei.

Renowned for its boutique luxury appliances, V-ZUG caters for a consumer who is after an intelligent yet easy-to-use appliance system with stand-out visual expression. “While the sleek look of the ovens and cooktops blends in with the interior aesthetics, the ease of use and function is exceptional,” says Dan of V-ZUG’s unique blend of form and performance.

Even though the appliances are straightforward to use, they allow for flexibility to achieve more advanced cooking outcomes – a perfect choice for consumers with varying degrees of enthusiasm, skill or appetite to learn; and a superior option for a custom dwelling, built around the inhabitants’ specific needs.

Providing a unique combination of ease of use, flexibility and timeless visual appeal, V-ZUG is the must-have for a premium space that’s designed for personal taste, ultimate convenience – and for years to come.
