Located in the quiet Brisbane suburb of Paddington, the Arcos Villa is a breathtaking Spanish-style villa. The forever home of Robert and Meghan Gray, the five-bedroom palatial house represents a collaboration between Joe Adsett Architects and Gray’s design and construction company, Graya Construction.
Measuring just over 800 square metres, the old Queenslander home has been beautifully renovated into a Mediterranean inspired luxury villa, with six bathrooms, three living rooms, a swimming pool and space for eight cars.
“We wanted a home that felt like we were in an international hotel, a home away from home. We wanted to achieve a Spanish villa feel with an Aussie twist,” says Gray.
Flowing, curved shapes define the design style of the home, featuring elegant archways that are hallmarks of the Mediterranean style.
Free flowing interiors and exteriors with lots of natural light add to the luxurious and homely feel, the sun-drenched courtyard a standout feature of the home.
“We wanted a space where we could easily entertain, a space that was connected to both the living area and outdoor entertaining area, yet comfortable for day-to-day use,” says Gray.
Modern technology paired with minimal styling makes up the kitchen, sleek Gaggenau 200 series ovens fitting in elegantly alongside the streamlined kitchen.
“Their seamless design enhanced the feel of the kitchen, they have a much more blended look rather than the focus being on the oven,” says Gray.
