From its unmistakable façade to the imaginative use of light and space, Ferndale is a home like no other. Once you pass through the full height custom timber door you immediately appreciate the careful consideration given to each space and the abundance of natural light.
The front sitting room creates a relaxed breakaway zone with north-facing windows opening out to a secluded garden. The light continues as you walk towards the heart of the home with an internal atrium bringing morning sun onto the double height void and built-in bench seating. Past the central dining area is the family living room with impressive 4.5mt high ceiling, timber wall panelling, freestanding gas heater and porcelain stone hearth with amazing outlooks over the pool. The kitchen is exquisitely appointed with Swiss made V-Zug appliances and there is ample space in the interconnected walk-in-pantry and Laundry.
There is a luxurious ground floor master bedroom with its own private courtyard and custom Zuster scalloped bedhead, large WIR and generous ensuite. Upstairs there are a further three bedrooms, each with well appointed, light-filled ensuites along with a study area and kids rumpus. Other features include AirSmart ducted heating and air-conditioning throughout, engineered oak timber floors, custom Zuster vanity units, semi-commercial double glazed windows and feature lighting by lightslightslights.
The garden was designed to provide low-maintenance enjoyment year round but to also create the sense of being close to nature in any part of the home. The palette of materials works to bring warmth to the architecture while allowing the house to take center stage.

The Mazzei family has been building exceptional and award-winning homes across Melbourne for decades. Recently, Mazzei has partnered with Webster Architecture & Interiors (WAI) because we believe that ultimately, the success of your new home begins with the choices you make during your design phase. Through our years of experience we have seen the amazing results that can be achieved through good design, and how often this is under used. This is why we place design at the heart of what we do.
We work with you in partnership with WAI from the very beginning. Your architect and builder will work closely with you from the outset, ensuring your vision, your design and your budget are always aligned. We are passionately design driven — we know that considered, appropriate and inspiring architecture is at the core of every great home. And we are equally passionate about ensuring our clients find their home building journey is enjoyable, and even inspiring.
WAI is a Melbourne based architecture and interiors practice established by Dan Webster in 2014. We believe that every project is unique in style, site and context, and most importantly it’s client. We have therefore tailored our process to be flexible, adaptable and dynamic to each client and project need.
We have a strong sense of purpose in our architecture, but a considered and layered approach to our interiors. Our design work is strongly considered and strives for the perfect balance between form and function. The two in harmony produce beautiful homes to live in.
Zuster is Dutch for sister. In design terms, Zuster symbolises a legacy of quality Australian design and craftsmanship that embraces five generations of Dutch family heritage. Today, sisters Wilhelmina McCarroll and Fleur Sibbel draw on Zuster’s hand-crafting expertise to forge a signature approach that is distinctive in its beauty and refinement.
Exceptional craftsmanship combined with bespoke detailing and intuitive function infuses the Zuster collection with provenance and heirloom appeal. Drawing on the sisters’ shared passion for fashion, art and furniture, Zuster’s furniture and homewares collection is notable for its exquisite detailing and refined finishing. Each piece is a statement in its own right, designed to enrich and elevate your home spaces, and become part of your family history.
