A statement of style in this cosmopolitan streetscape, this new, architect designed two-storey residence basks in northern light while combining sleek, elegant Scandinavian lines with a palette of high end finishes.
To the north of the home, a towering wall of glass rises up from floor-to-ceiling emphasising the courtyard garden and lofty sense of space and light. Storage solutions are prioritized to retain the streamlined presence in every room; while LED lighting, engineered oak flooring and dramatic black steel framed windows and doors provide uniformity.
Expertly designed to draw natural light into the core of the home through a series of skylights with remote controlled blinds for light control and a light shelf in the kitchen to bounce sun off the ceiling into the living space, the entire interior is vibrant and bright.
Soaring 3.2 metre ceilings and a gas fireplace floating on a bluestone hearth with American Oak surrounds rising to the ceiling cleverly concealing a television defines the living and dining room which seamlessly extends to the garden.
The kitchen maintains the home's streamlined efficiency with a butler's pantry with wine fridge, marble island bench, Smeg appliances, tinted mirror splashback and hidden power points.
Upstairs, two king sized bedrooms, a third bedroom/guest room includes the master suite with the luxurious north-facing main bedroom with a balcony view of Christ Church steeple, a wall of American Oak wardrobes and stylish, thoughtfully designed en suite. The principal bathroom seemingly hovers above a glass floor with a bath, glass vanity and European laundry.
At the front of the house, a dynamic glass fronted garage with heating, tiled floor and electric interior blind for privacy.
With additional off-street parking, water tank, hydronic heating, air conditioning on the first level, electric blinds and double glazed windows and doors, this fastidiously appointed designer residence resides amid a quiet streetscape within a short walk of Toorak Road's cafes and restaurants, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Fawkner Park, Prahran Market, trams and trains.
