A traditional-style pergola frames this villa’s outdoor dining area and fireplace, positioned near the living areas and kitchen at the side of the home. The sheltered area overlooks the heated swimming pool, complete with swim jets and a waterfall feature. In addition, there’s an outside shower facility hidden behind the outdoor fireplace and decorative screen. The sloping nature of the triangular street-front property provides a degree of privacy from neighbours.

Watch the videoAbout the project: This major renovation by VillaVilla and Leuschke Kahn Architects has breathed new life into a rundown, transitional villa.

The triangular site has been used to best advantage, with an impressive street frontage and indoor-outdoor flow from the entire main living level of the house.
