Behind a whitewashed façade, this suburban home has been boldly reworked. The front door has a stained-glass window that affectionately recalls the home’s Victorian past. Inside, a sweeping open-plan layout creates a lasting impression. Exposed timber floors lead into a living area bathed in sunlight from a bay window. Sink into the L-shaped sofa in front of the television which sits on a floating marble stand.
Dark-stained wood panelling stretches into the kitchen, dining room and garden beyond. Two teal armchairs offer a pop of colour, adjacent to a log burner. Make dinner on a chef-grade range oven then serve at the dining table that seats 10. It’s a space tailor-made for entertaining. Reams of natural light pour in through two expansive skylights and full-height glazing. A patio comes complete with outdoor seating, while a glass balustrade and climbing planters border the swimming pool. Plus, a wood-clad sauna.
The principal bedroom suite takes the second floor and is imbued with natural light through south-facing glazing. Whitewashed walls are grounded with dark floors, setting a tranquil scene for the free-standing bath that sits by French windows. Frosted Crittall doors punctuate the space with an urban edge, opening into the en suite shower room. Downstairs, three guest bedrooms are minimalist sanctums – served by a family bathroom wrapped in subway tiles, featuring an eye-catching mirrored bath.
