Poolside Entertaining in Mt Eliza
Wow. This project is resort living in it’s true sense. This very challenging project was completed on the cliff face of Port Phillip Bay in Mt Eliza on the Mornington Peninsula south of Melbourne. As the severe winter winds whipped waves off the wet edge pool, the whole entertaining area gets a thorough soaking.
No better challenge for the PVC weatherboard cabinetry with marine grade stainless fix provided by the team at LimeTree Alfresco. And what a result. The design by Mike Doherty of PMP Contracting called for precision work with two floating U-Shaped islands facing each other. An extended 6 metre run of poolside cabinetry was also included to store the outdoor lounge cushions.
Specifications and Finishes
Let’s start with the BBQ. The Smeg BIBQ1205AF 316 Marine Grade Stainless In bench BBQ is stunning. It has stainless cookware and burners throughout and an extremely well designed fat drainage system. Other appliances were sourced by the client including 2 x 3 Door Alfresco Beverage Centres, Franke Sink & Mixer and a Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher making this Outdoor Kitchen well and truly self contained.
The external finishes are Anodised Aluminium frames with original PERSPEX branded inserts in Shadow Grey Gloss. The client sourced his own 40mm Granite bench tops to match the wet edge that surrounds the pool. A first class result.
