Honouring the past while celebrating the present with inspired interiors and an integrated outdoor living pavilion, this exquisitely renovated Edwardian in the heart of Brighton's most coveted lifestyle precinct is designed to enjoy glamorous entertaining and relaxed family living.
The picture-perfect façade, complete with timber fretwork and tiled verandah, delightfully belies the size and scope of the domain beyond. Gracing a spread in Home Beautiful a few years ago, key elements, including an eclectic blend of chandeliers and designer lighting, a striking monochromatic palette, and bespoke finishes including Pietra Grigio marble and ornate pressed tin, all retain their photogenic sway. Traditional fittings, such as timber and tiled fireplaces, ceiling roses and dado panelling are prominent in the front section of the home which includes three bedrooms, the main with WIR and ensuite, and a stunning black subway-tiled main bathroom with deep, freestanding tub. Original Baltic-pine floorboards line the long hallway, lit by dimmable chandeliers and skylights, and leads to the atrium-like family domain anchored by a superb black natural stone kitchen with marble splashback, Siemens gas cooktop and oven, brass tapware, island bench, and sleek, veneered cabinetry that houses a large pantry/appliance cupboard and integrated F&P fridge. Soaring ceilings, fitted with Velux skylights allow light to flood in to the north-westerly facing open plan zone with a floating gas log fireplace, and formal lounge with OFP that opens to the 'outdoor room'. Designed by architect Michael Roberts to take advantage of the northerly facing aspect, and seamlessly accessed via glass French Doors, this all-weather, integrated entertaining pavilion features pressed-tin feature walls, wood-fire heater, ceiling fan, built-in wine fridge and seating that doubles as storage. The adjoining dining zone, with an open pergola, has a built-in BBQ, and is privately cocooned by more pressed tin and lush hedging.
Includes Euro laundry, plantation shutters, energy efficient 6-star gas ducted heating and 4HP inverter air conditioning, both which can be zoned, OSP for up to three cars, water tank, auto irrigation, garden lighting, and attic storage. In a super-quiet one-way street, just off Bay Street, the home is just steps to fabulous shops, boutiques, cafes and the cinema, as well as North Brighton station. Golden Mile beaches, including the popular dog beach, is just a short stroll away, as is Firbank and Brighton grammar schools. Due Diligence Checklist
