A light-filled two-bedroom apartment where classical details collide with contemporary aesthetics.
Climb the stone staircase up to this smart Victorian stucco townhouse and you'll be greeted by an architect-designed apartment that perfectly melds tradition with a pared-back vibe. It's a simultaneously cool and familiar environment.
If it’s space you crave, the open-plan living area with its soaring ceilings and full-height curved bay windows has it in abundance. Mid-century floor lamps set the scene for cosy film nights or sinking into a page-tuner in the burnt-orange Arne Jacobsen chair. The sculptural Japanese Conran coffee table makes for an intriguing centrepiece, with thoughtfully-considered white-on-white artwork lending focus to the sleek furniture and ornate cornices. Prepare evening cocktails at the Eileen Gray drinks table.
If you’re in the mood for socialising, gather family and friends around the glass-topped dining table and fling open the French windows onto your very own balcony – a private sun-trap overlooking lush greenery. The floor-to-ceiling linen curtains allow warm light to filter through. For more intimate meals, or a quick cup of coffee, there’s a table for two in the Bulthaup-fitted kitchen, with sleek timber joinery, a white glass splashback and sliding aluminium shutters. An intuitive and fuss-free setting to prep meals, with a large window flooding the room with morning sun.
The main bedroom continues the minimalist mood – all pale oak furniture and white walls. High ceilings and bay windows allow reams of light into the space, showcasing the intricate period cornicing. Vibrant pops of crimson and contemporary artwork bring colour to the room. A table, with its curvaceous Cherner chair, works equally well as a desk or a dressing table. Its accompanying bathroom showcases a sweeping timber floor and oversized oak-framed mirror; a stylish backdrop for invigorating showers or long soaks in the tub. A second double bedroom is a cosy affair with warm natural tones, served by a shower room featuring a soft waterfall shower.
