Home Theatre, Multi-Room & Home Automation

System Price $120,000

System Includes:

Home Theatre Room, Multi-Room Audio, Security, Access Control, Installation & Programming

Life Style Store were involved in the building process for this house from the initial construction stage. We originally completed the theatre system and multi-room audio-visual system when the house was being built and pre-wired for future automation. In 2018 we expanded the Control4 system within the home to include an automated Ness M1 alarm system, Lilin Security cameras and Control4 Intercom and Access Control Functionality.

Control4 plays a major role in the automation of multiple components and is operated from Touchscreens, Portable Tablets, Phones, Remote controls and schedules, timers and sensors.

The Entertainment System includes a dedicated home theatre and multi-room entertainment zones.

The custom theatre room features a Sony 1080P Projector, 110″ Screen and an Anthem A/V Receiver powering Paradigm Monitor Series Speakers and a Paradigm Subwoofer. Custom Joinery at the front of the room houses all of the equipment. In 2018 we also updated the clients cinema seating to two rows of the latest Row One Evolution cinema seats.

The Multi-room system features a Control4 Leaf 6 x 6 HDMI Matrix System, a Control4 4 Zone Audio Matrix amplifier and multiple Sonos Connect amplifiers driving internal and external audio-visual zones with Paradigm Speakers.

This home is another excellent achievement by Life Style Store and an exemplary case of how modern day living should be.

Grand estate

Built on acreage for a large modern family, this timeless home design boasts a host of smart home conveniences

If ever there is a good time for a new home and a fresh start, it’s following a wedding. “As newlyweds in our second marriage, we needed something to consume our imaginations and something we could involve all of our five children in together,” explains homeowner Peter, who built this exquisite new Kenthurst home on acreage with his wife, Kim. “The purpose of building our home was to give us a lifelong project that we could become passionate about. “Our goal was to build a family home that would appear timeless, with all of the modern conveniences that will stand the test of time. We wanted a house that you would be unable to tell what year it was built, not only now but in the future, and in 20 years’ time, as long as it is maintained, will always look new.”

As the couple has spectacular rural grounds and five children, the home had to be large. “The house was designed to accommodate our growing family, in particular adult children, whose ages ranged from 16 years to 22 years at the time,” says Peter. “This meant we had to design a house with separate private areas. Each bedroom needed its own entrance, its own bathroom and all the conveniences we could think of to make our family comfortable. We wanted everyone to be close to each other while at the same time giving everyone their individual privacy — something we feel we achieved very well.”

There are four adults in the house who all lead very busy lives, including a tradesman and a daughter who is studying her Masters of Education. “We also own two Border Collies who are our babies,” says Peter. “Now our children don’t want to move out and it looks like they never will, despite being 29, 26 and 22 respectively!” The family’s inspiration for the build grew from buying the land, spending a year of weekends living in a shipping container while building, then erecting more than 1km of post-and-rail fences. As funds became available, the project began and as money was initially tight, Peter and Kim opted to build a kit home — the Castlereagh by PAAL Homes. “After the initial delivery of the frame and having plans to construct the build, Kim and I decided that we were going to … build the house as an owner builder on our own,” says Peter. “This was a huge challenge as I have never built anything before, so we approached a friend of the family, who happens to be a semi-retired builder, and began the building process.” It took three years of full-time work, seven days a week, to complete the build. Fortunately, Kim and Peter had already built a massive American-style, fully self-contained barn on another part of their acreage to spend time in while they built the master home.

The home had to be environmentally friendly with a focus on minimal power and water consumption. As it is on a rural platform, has expansive gardens and doesn’t have town water or sewerage, the home had to be energy effi cient. The design incorporates five bedrooms with a wraparound verandah (plus an additional two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, theatre room, billiard room, formal dining and family room in the American barn and an additional bedroom in the pool house), two open fireplaces, solid grey gum flooring, high ceilings, bulkheads and coffered ceilings in the kitchen, and ornate cornices. Each of the bedrooms has its own TV which can view any of six connected HDMI sources and each room and the connected sources can be operated via the Control4 system. The pure travertine stone bathrooms have dual-hung vanities, twin showers, imported Newform Italian tapware and marble sinks. The kitchen is fi tted with the best ILVE appliances, including a custom 1.1m-long induction cooktop, twin ovens and wine/beer fridges; a full butler’s pantry and laundry; a custom 5m American oak island and custom hand-painted French provincial cupboards. Music for this space is provided by Paradigm in-ceiling speakers. “My wife and I chose every fitting and fixture throughout the house. The colour scheme and the design and furnishings were all done by Kim,” says Peter. “The inside of the house was all Kim, the outside and the gardens was all me … kind of.” Life Style Store was involved in the building process from the initial construction stage and originally completed the theatre system and multi-room audio-visual system when the house was being built and pre-wired for future automation. “Home automation is extremely important to us so that our lifestyle can be as simple, comprehensive and expandable as the property grows in the future,” says Peter. “The home automation is powerful enough to meet all of our needs.” In 2018, Life Style Store expanded the Control4 system within the home to include an automated Ness M1 alarm system, Lilin Security cameras and Control4 intercom and access control functionality. Control4 plays a major role in the automation of multiple components and is operated from touchscreens, portable tablets, phones, remote controls, schedules, timers and sensors.

The custom theatre room features a Sony HD projector, 110-inch screen and an Anthem A/V receiver powering Paradigm Monitor Series speakers and a Paradigm subwoofer. Custom joinery at the front of the room houses all equipment. In 2018, Life Style Store also updated the cinema seating to include two rows of the latest Row One Evolution cinema seats.

The multi-room system features a Control4 six-room HDMI matrix system, a Control4 4-zone amplifier and multiple Sonos Connect amplifiers driving internal and external audio-visual zones with Paradigm speakers. “Our favourite part of our home is the home theatre room, which is just spectacular,” says Peter. “We initially came to Vinod with a view to just have a projector and speakers. He took us into a room and spent at least four hours with my wife and I, and we ended up leaving the showroom with a smart house with an ultimate theatre room setup,” says Peter. “I honestly think that his initial discussion and the extra we put into the home to make it a smart home prompted me to take the build up to another level and make it spectacular, rather than just good. It’s all Vinod’s fault!

“From the beginning, I was impressed with Life Style Store for the excellent quality and extensive knowledge of everything electronic. The fit-out and installation was second to none and I would highly recommend them as I have to other family members who have since had smart homes completed by Life Style Store. The company didn’t for one minute make me worry about my money and having things completed, which they did every time they said they would. I am now on my third phase of installation for the pool house, which brings the installation up to another level again, which I am really looking forward to. “We are about 75 per cent finished on our project. When the pool house is complete, the home will exceed 1100sqm of roof area plus the 350sqm of barn area. “I think our home is very special because when we first purchased the land it was barren and basically a bush block. Since then, we have transformed the area into a grand estate. As you drive through the front entrance to our property and down the privately owned road, it opens up to an area that’s just magical, with expansive views and a tree-studded drive entrance which has to be seen to be appreciated. Words can’t describe the feeling you get when you enter our world.”
