No. 9 Bellbird Place makes a statement.

A spectacular labour of love is poised to become the concrete king of the Warrandyte jungle in what could be a huge suburb price record.

Developed by married building industry professionals as their family home, 9 Bellbird Place was recently listed with a price guide of $4.7-$5.17 million.

Even the lower end of that is more than $1 million above the suburb’s residential price record of $3.25 million, set on December 2016 for 9 Margaret Court, according to CoreLogic.

Feature walls with black concrete capture attention.

Over 1200sq m of interior space set across four levels — prepare to get lost.

A testament to industrial design, elements of the prodigious home include exposed concrete walls and polished floors, galvanised steel balustrades and exposed interior pipes.

Having met at trade school and both worked in the building industry, vendors David and Felicity Campanaro were inspired to create a project unique to Warrandyte.

The award-winning kitchen, with integrated appliances, backlit quartz feature wall and a full butler’s pantry.

You might say this home has elevated the level of minimalism design in Warrandyte.

The vendors said the six-bedroom home was also designed to suit the local landscape, despite prominent industrial features.

“We wanted to keep it natural — we just put both our ideas together and we both liked the rawness of concrete and steel and that’s how we wanted this built,” Mr Campanaro said.

“It just fits in well with the bushland.”

An expansive home office with, you guessed it, polished floors and concrete walls.

The open-plan kitchen and dining space easily extends to an outdoor terrace with glorious green views.

“Me and my wife absolutely love it here — it’s been a long, long journey for us and it’s going to be sad to see it go,” Mr Campanaro said.

The Formed Constructions director said the couple’s next project would have “probably a bit less concrete”, after polished floors, black, grey and precast panels were all used in the build.

Four living areas are spread across the home, with double-glazed windows keeping out the cold.

A spectacular home theatre is simply Marvel-lous.

Former project manager Mrs Campanaro said a huge amount of thought went into the project from the very start.

“The agony that’s gone into making this a reality was six years in the making,” she said.

“Everything has been designed backwards to give it the most aesthetically pleasing outcome.”

With additions such as hydroponic underfloor heating that goes up through the towel rails and internal rainwater pipes, Mrs Campanaro said it had been a huge source of pride to see the ambitious build come together.

Six bedrooms all capture stunning views.

A huge den in the Shaynna Blaze-designed interiors.

“Despite all the setbacks and the time and energy that went into it, I actually have really enjoyed it. Creating something that I think is beautiful — I know it’s not everybody’s taste but I love it,” Mrs Campanaro said.

“It was more like a commercial build than a residential build in so many ways — you don’t normally have a core driller in a domestic product.”

The couple said they were excited to spend time with their four boys while they planned their next project.

Vendor David Campanaro loves to play sports in the massive garage with the kids when its raining.

A terrace is serviced by an outdoor kitchen.

Barry Plant Doncaster East agent Adele Kocuk said the minimalist home had already attracted significant interest.
“There’s definitely a lot of interest and probably because it is so different,” Ms Kocuk said.

“If you’re looking for the French provincial type of thing — this is not that.”

The home is for private sale by set date of June 11.

The sleek facade gives little away about the home’s size.

The home gym also features a steam room.

Italian Bisazza tiles adorn the five bathrooms.
