Handsome townhouses and a village-like atmosphere set the tone for this two-bedroom apartment. Expect bright rooms and period proportions.
Formerly the blank-canvas backdrop for a curated collection of uplifting visual art by emerging artists. The aesthetic sensibility of its discerning owner manifests in even the smallest details. This pared-back, two-bedroom home – all clean lines, muted colours and light-washed spaces – lets vibrant furnishings and artwork take centre stage. Considered design is expressed through the inverted living arrangement. The upper floor is the social heart of the home. The lower level says: rest and reset.
On the ground floor, the open-plan reception room and kitchen diffuse the boundaries between cooking, eating and lounging – a suave space designed for entertaining. High ceilings, a marble fireplace and broad sash windows nod to the property’s period heritage. Curated, characterful pieces, including a Gino Sarfatti lamp, a Tom Dixon velvet sofa and unique Anton Alvarez side tables, are made more striking because of the minimal décor. Artwork, mostly photography peppers the walls – a space to inspire.
The kitchen is streamlined and fuss-free. Integrated appliances and sage green cabinetry sit beside granite counters and open shelving. In warmer climes, swing open the French doors and step onto the decked terrace – breathe in the fresh air and enjoy panoramas across leafy canopies. Coral-tinted furniture adds a pop of colour.
There’s a clever interplay between this level and the lower ground floor. Both enjoy access to the private patio garden; from the balcony, descend a winding staircase. A set of French doors leads back to the master bedroom on the basement floor. Laid-back and understated, it’s an inviting retreat from the stresses of city life. Soak tense muscles in the ivory-coloured en suite. The second bedroom – served by a family bathroom – is ideal for overnight guests. Home workers can repurpose it as a study.
Blonde-bricked flower beds and burgeoning climbers line this urban outdoor space.
A place to sit and press pause. Sundowners, optional.
A thoroughly social floor. The sun-kissed lounge leads seamlessly to a streamlined kitchen.
