Re-imagined for 21st century family life, this Wavell Heights home’s original spirit has been masterfully retained and enhanced with a contemporary two-storey extension, a Palm Springs-style pool and covered terrazzo terrace.

Inside and out, the home exudes mid century sophistication. Building materials, design elements, fixtures, fittings and furnishings have all been well considered to complement the home’s facade. The broad street frontage lends the home an impressive street presence and the generous allotment means ample space to enjoy the outdoors. Showcasing a warm colour palette, the interiors of the home include a mix of timber and natural stone features. Warm woods and original cabinetry, feature stone walls, sleek shapes and a spiral staircase transport visitors and residents to a designer 1960s home.

The kitchen is a joy to cook and entertain in, designed to enable the chef to remain engaged in conversation. Boasting a suite of top appliances, the kitchen flows to the open plan living and dining spaces. The media room or fourth bedroom is also positioned on this level. Occupying its own exclusive level, the master suite is an opulent retreat. This space boasts a walk-in robe and designer bathroom to create a complete parents’ getaway. Additional space is provided in the home with three stone bathrooms and a study which cleverly conceals computers.

Outside a Palm Springs inspired pool is a welcome, modern addition to the original property. An original 60s garden, meticulously maintained, fuses the contemporary space with the home’s heritage. The property is a strong example of how a property’s traditional features need not be comprised to accomodate a modern life of luxury.
