Beyond its classic façade, this majestic Victorian reveals a sensitive and beautiful renovation that creates a glamorous home for contemporary family life directly opposite the beach and parkland.
Grand scale dimensions are matched by a striking palette of dark and light hues, underscored by high- end finishes of European oak timber floors, with stone and marble in the kitchen and bathrooms. Original ornamental details have been highlighted and reinvigorated, from the deep skirtings to the marble mantelpiece, staircase and windows.
Reconfigured spaces include the traditional hall with magnificent chandelier and front room, now an impressive study with marble mantelpiece and built-in shelving. A guest suite has built-in robes and a designer marble bathroom with frame less glass shower with a children’s playroom en route to the kitchen, dining and living domain. The marble- finished kitchen has three Miele ovens, Miele cooktop, coffee machine and integrated fridge/freezer. Lit by overhead skylights the spectacular marble bench top extends into the well-appointed butler’s pantry. At the other end of the living space, floor-to-ceiling glass sliders provide a smooth transition to the paved terrace, garden and swimming pool, framed by hedging for privacy.
Charcoal carpet features on the original staircase which gleams under glossy black paint as it arrives at the traditional split landing. To the rear, two spacious bedrooms are served by a glamorous bathroom with mosaic tiled wall, shower and freestanding bath. The sophisticated master suite includes a study in dark moody blues and greys, luxurious bedroom in similar tones and contrasting white ensuite and walk-in-robe.
The front two rooms are a spacious living space, enhanced by two fireplaces with marble mantelpieces, and deep grey walls with contrasting white ceilings. Glass doors open to the balcony and views to the beach.
With its flexible floorplan, show-stopping interiors, hydronic heating, cooling, under floor heating in tiled areas, storage, laundry, off-street parking, and beachfront position close to shops, transport and the CBD, this home has the perfect balance between heritage and a new aesthetic in this prized residential pocket.
