Get lost in the magic of a C1900 villa with an other-worldly reinvention

Offers Close Wed, 8th May – 12pm

The brief: reawaken a classic character villa into a timeless sanctuary which transports you into a state of calm and creativity. And the reality is even more beautiful than the vision.

Cross the threshold of this C1900 abode on a boundless south-north parcel and you’ll find yourself wanting to run your fingers over every unique inch of its varying textures, curvy accents and custom fixtures.

The way the hallway arch matches the millimetre-perfect symmetry of the rear steel-framed doors says everything about the attention to detail in a home that contrasts bold and earthy hues like few dare to try.

With the help of designer Sophie Katina and the concrete-crafting gurus at Love Concrete, the Pinterest-destined kitchen plays subtle shades of peach and pink against one another to make it a functional work of art.

The warm cream hues of Italian travertine crazy paving complement the hand crafted ceramic door handles, playful designer tap wear and moody “Black Forest” microcement.

Two sets of bi-fold doors swing open to blur the lines between the world indoors and the expansive alfresco patio with a skillion rain-deflecting pavilion and wide view of a rear yard defined by its old walnut tree, raised wicking beds and edible plantings.

Just a stroll from Princess Margaret playground , Black Forest Primary School and public transport that will teleport you to the CBD or metro beaches before you even get started on your Spotify playlist, a home that’s simply out of this world…has the world you know at its feet.
