Nestled on a quiet street is a post war cottage that has undergone a stunning transformation. The original concept design was imagined by Emma Somers of Dwell Architects.
The brief was to create a cutting-edge modern home, while still retaining the timeless appeal of the traditional Workers Cottage. Emma listened to the owner’s passionate desire to have a street view that enhanced the traditional workers cottage look yet an extension to the back that was innovative, modern and very edgy – something you would expect to see in Paddington.
Nothing has been left to chance and everything has been well planned and thought through.
The result is outstanding, with a crisp, clean classic look at the front combined with a modern twist featuring large picture windows opening to split level decks designed to maximise the use of light and space creating a generously proportioned family home.
The traditional look, with the must have picket fence, really draws you to the property and welcomes you to go inside. The owners have gone all out to present this home at its best for you.
As you walk through the hall to the expansive kitchen and lounge/dining area, it will take your breath away as you move seamlessly from classic to modern, the blend has been perfectly executed.
There is light coming from all angles and the sense of open space is refreshing.
Engineered Blackbutt flooring upstairs adds to a warm and inviting feel.
The kitchen is a gourmet cooks dream, complete with Miele dishwasher, Bosch 90cm gas cooktop and electric oven, rangehood plus a large stone top breakfast bar featuring ornate hanging lights. Open plan with plenty of storage as well – perfect even for the fussiest cook.
Look to the right and you will be struck by the huge picture window with its own seating and storage, edged with Blackbutt wood, the high ceilings and effortless flow through to the upper deck.
Breezes always seem to abound up here.
The floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving serves both as a library and media area for the kids both big and small.
There is a modern bathroom dressed smartly with porcelain floor tiles and the glassed shower features its own large single sheet porcelain tiles.
As you step down the open plan set of stairs, again, the use of large windows, modern materials continue the theme to the lower level.
Downstairs the fully converted space is being used as a living and media area complete with fully plumbed bar.
Again, there is another massive picture window, this time with bifolds coupled with a full lounge seat that you could lie down and enjoy a good book.
The delights keep on coming.
The other converted utility rooms are being featured as a gym and two bedrooms with built ins. The downstairs level also has fully ducted air-conditioning.
There is another large full bathroom also featuring similar porcelain tile as upstairs.
The multi-level lower deck integrates effortlessly with the back yard increasing the sense of space and separation.
Throughout, practical and efficient storage has been a focus.
The garden is meticulously manicured, designed with peaceful places to sit and contemplate. The large vegetable garden will delight the budding cook in you. It really is spectacular and planted to make gardening easy.
Under the house there are two 3,500 litre water tanks that service the gardens and internal amenities such as laundry and toilets. A 415-litre solar hot water system means plenty of savings on your utility bill. Easy access to the rear on both sides of the house means there is access if you want to put in a pool.
They say a picture paints a thousand words but not for this place, it’s a home you simply must come and see for yourself and you will be impressed.
