    A two-bedroom monochrome marvel, a stone’s throw from the leafy, community-focused enclaves of Queen’s Park

    Space and light are words that spring to mind as you step inside this penthouse, which once served as a location for photoshoots. The sleek white walls are reminiscent of seamless paper – the go-to backdrop for many shutterbugs – and nod to the building’s past. So does the vaulted ceiling, which draws the eye upwards to where exposed ebony joists command attention and well-angled spotlights scatter light throughout the open-plan living and socialising hub.  


    Part of a boutique development reimagined by interior designer Tala Fustok, the apartment’s pared-back finish offsets its period bones. History collides with industrial accents, like the black lattice of the Crittall-style doors to the terrace that contribute a cleaned-lined symmetry. Contrasting wooden and Chroma flooring is used to subtly carve up the space into different zones for eating, lounging and cooking.  


    A matt-black Häcker kitchen competes with the soaring ceiling for attention, with light ricocheting off the surfaces courtesy of a mirrored splashback that adds to the feeling of space. The sense of form and structure that pervades doesn’t detract from the comfort factor, though. A sleek breakfast bar is the perfect spot to linger over a leisurely meal. Or take the party outside to the lawned terrace where you can admire the original brickwork of the building, drink in hand.  


    There’s a soothing ambiance to the sleeping quarters. A double with tactile wooden headboard is cosy and inviting, but the master suite is the real showstopper – all exposed beams, restored Crittal windows and a freestanding sink-in tub that wouldn’t be out of place in a chic spa hotel. Continue the pampering in the en-suite. Soft lighting adds to the soothing ambiance, while ample storage ensures the space is uncluttered and free of distractions. In the main bathroom, sage green Solus tiles provide an unexpected pop of colour to the monochrome theme and make the large rainfall shower, with Crosswater fittings, even more tempting.

      A long soak

      Set yourself up for a peaceful night’s sleep with a pre-slumber soak in the master bedroom’s deep tub. Night-time routines don’t get much more indulgent.

      A sense of perspective

      Take an alfresco breather to enjoy your morning coffee or do some sun salutations on the first floor terrace. A suitably zen start to the day.

      Artful design

      The clash of black and white makes a bold statement, emphasising the proportions of the living area’s vaulted ceiling.

    About the area

    A short stroll from family friendly Queen’s Park – where a string of independent businesses and 30-acres of green space await.

    Peruse the paperbacks at Queen’s Park Books and the well-stocked wine fridges at The Salusbury Wine Store before tucking into an Australian-inspired brunch at Milk Beach or shopping for beautiful blooms at Scarlet & Violet. To get the blood pumping, limber up for a game of tennis in Queen’s Park, or for a more relaxing – and altruistic – activity, venture a little further up Chamberlayne Road to the Lexi, an independent cinema run by volunteers, with all proceeds going to charity.
