Hollands Knight is a prestige, yet playful modern home. Designed by the Gold Coast’s own Jayson Pate of Jayson Pate Design. From playing a game of chess on the giant courtyard chess board, a first for Clamroc Constructions, to setting the kids up with a movie in the cinema room while the adults indulge in the custom wine cellar and wood-fired pizza oven. There is even room to retreat upstairs to the lounge and get lost in a book. Hollands Knight delights in choices!
The attention to detail is apparent from the moment you step inside, from the entry stone work and void to the barn style feature sliding doors, which innovatively allow more room to enjoy as you need no space for doors to swing open. The open plan kitchen, complete with butlers pantry and wine room were requirements for this clients project. These features look across the indoor dining and lounge with gorgeous commercial stacked doors, which when opened to the alfresco area, increase the space by double. This creates a fabulous outdoor lounge with wood fired pizza oven and outdoor BBQ, kitchen and bar fridges with views to the pool and canal. This incredibly large space compliments any desire, be it for entertaining, or relaxing! The staircase is where feature meets function creating almost art as it provides the backdrop to the downstairs lounge and living space. Once upstairs, you are met with a generous second lounge which has access from all the remaining six upstairs bedrooms.
I’ve built and renovated a lot of properties over the years and Tony Parente is by far the most passionate, dedicated and professional builder that I have ever worked with. In fact I’m trying to convince him to come to Brisbane to build some property for me up here!!! Over the past 2 years we have built two luxury waterfront homes with Tony and looking back on the experience I cringe at the thought of what the outcome on both of these would have been if I had of selected one of the other builders I was looking at the time. The fact that I chose Tony made 100% of the difference in the time it took to build and the absolute flawless level of finish and quality throughout both properties. Tony even flew his brother Joe up from Melbourne to do the tiling, who was also AMAZING, because he has the highest level of expectations of himself and his team and anything less than the highest quality job is unacceptable. I have had a heap of friends and business associates come through the properties and ask me how I found the builder and my only comment was, “I would never build a property on the Gold Coast without using Tony Parente.” Prior to embarking on both of these projects, which were relatively significant in their size, I felt nervous about the process as I had had several bad experiences in the past with builders falling asleep at the wheel. Now that I have used Tony, building on the coast is a significantly more simple task and one that I look forward to repeating many times again….but only if and when the CLAMROC team are available.
The experience was unbelievable and whilst this might seem like I’m going on a bit, he was a champion guy…did an amazing job…and we owe the entire success of both projects to him and his amazing Team….
