Period Landmark, Design Benchmark
More than just a landmark of period beauty, this impeccably renovated architect's own home is also a benchmark of family-functional architect design. Awarded Bayside's Best Heritage Renovation 2016, this four bedroom and study, 2.5 bathroom, triple zone Victorian residence is expertly re-crafted to maximise north sun and garden outlooks as it transitions from gracious original rooms (including a library and grandly curvaceous formal lounge-dining), to a streamlined family zone. Re-configured for a modern family with a private master domain (including cutting-edge dual-shower ensuite, vanity area, robes and private garden outlook), this clever floorplan features well-zoned children's quarters (one with mezzanine-study) and a hidden home-office.
Appointed to a demanding architectural specification with an elite European appliance kitchen (with three Smeg ovens and Liebherr fridge) and bespoke bathrooms with feature tiling, the home showcases hand-selected materials including Blackbutt and walnut joinery, Carrera marble benchtops and splashbacks, and original solid timber floors - limed with the lightest finish.
Set against a backdrop of fine period features, the home's contemporary architectural detail has an innovative edge - with slide-away and bi-fold double-glazing, a sun-catching window-nook, a mix of fireplaces (gas-converted Victorian for the original rooms, woodfire for family living and outdoors). There's even an eclectic ensuite-window recycled from artist, David Boyd's on-site pottery studio.
Climate-controlled by reverse-cycle air-conditioning and hydronic heating (including in-floor), the home is sound-wired over multiple zones (inside and out) and secured by an alarm and auto-gated semi-circle driveway parking for at least six cars (two undercover). Even the vast approx 1,247sqm grounds have an architectural edge; with still and running water-features, a solar-heated, auto-clean, auto-full tiled pool, and all-day north sun for multiple bluestone-paved and decked entertainment areas - the main with BBQ, fireplace and creative wood storage.
A kick to Royal Ave parklands, 300m to Sandringham House, a minute to the Village, station and bay, this architect's own renovation sets the standard in period home innovation.
