An ingenious redesign elevates this demure Edwardian to future-facing landmark. Apart from its period facade and front rooms, everything old has become new again at this blue-chip address. Its owners engaged a commercial-industrial architect from Sydney to help transform their historically significant, yet outdated, family home.
The floor plan separates living and dining, study and kitchen from primary sleeping quarters, setting these in a split-level addition joining the main house via walkway. There is a guest room with en suite, mezzanine space with balcony and children’s living room. Concrete pillars seemingly rise from the heated pool, and walls of glass and high ceilings flood all three levels with light.
