Designed by James Doole Designer & Developer From the designer:
I renovated this home for myself, after purchasing it as an interim home while I was renovating my larger home in the same area.
The house has been renovated and played around with by many previous owner, so it was my mission to create a modern floor plan with everyday luxuries while maintaining the character and traditional elegance the original 1920s home offered.
We redesigned and re-decorated from top to toe.
The bathrooms are fully tiled in a 300x600 Carrara tile, in bricked format, matched with elegant brass tapware and hardware, while the kitchen is the hub of the home and features Miele appliances, a Calcatta gold benchtop and raw brass tap ware and hardware.
There is also a special hidden hinged door to access a full scullery and laundry tucked directly behind the kitchen.
The courtyard and landscaping are a large part of this renovation, with the sloping section being retained and tiled for a lovely entertaining area and the garden of boxed hedging and topiary trees working so well with the very traditional home.
