A cocooning two-bedroom period apartment beautifully revised for modern living: a haven from the hubbub of its lively location.
Behind the stucco frontage of this first-floor Victorian townhouse, this two-bed apartment is an undeniably modern affair. From the hallway, a bright, open-plan living-kitchen-dining area capitalises on the generously proportioned Victorian bones of the building. High ceilings and large sash windows lend a light, airy feel, while Dinesen flooring runs throughout. By the windows, a generous corner sofa – room to stretch out. A sliding pocket door connects to the double-bedroom next door – a versatile space that can be closed off at will for privacy. Ideal for a second bedroom or quiet study space for those working from home. From here, gain access to a wrought iron south-west facing balcony, panelled in glass. Back in the living space, ambient lighting glows from shadow gaps in the ceiling. A run of storage spans the length of the room – from the window to the dining nook: a convivial spot and the scene of cosy suppers gathered around the table. Dim the lights and enjoy the crackle of the fire next to you as the evening draws out. The kitchen is fuss-free and minimalist, with white-gloss counters, latch-free storage and clever integrated appliances for a truly seamless feel.
Along the corridor, a streamlined family-sized bathroom with generous vanity and over-the-bath shower – a private space beautifully finished in the same warm white palette. Next door in the master bedroom, sash windows funnel natural light in. A double bed sits next to the window for leafy treetop views to wake up to. Wall-to-wall seamless fitted cabinetry keeps the space clutter free and tranquil.
