One of Mathoura Road's tightly held clutch of early Victorian brick villa's, a rare bow window facade introduces equally unforgettable interiors. Original arched windows serve as the inspiration for the sinuous curves and feature arches that adorn newly fashioned contemporary spaces, a careful connection that binds the past to the present. Nature's elements - timber, iron and stone are used to stunning effect, harmonizing with abundant natural light in a layout that expresses its luxury in the subtle use of expertly selected materials, opulent finishes and custom crafted artisan fixtures such as Enzie's breathtaking helical spiral staircase.
Pale European Oak flooring and a delicate Petite Friture pendant introduce visitors to the entry hall where glazed steel French doors unfold to the dramatic dimensions of a generous lounge retaining its soaring rose ceiling, now fitted with a custom Naomi Troski cloud pendant. A magnificent Cheminees Philippe double sided fireplace dressed in bespoke Italian marble serves here and in the adjoining dining domain where lively conversations can take place beneath an incredible Alex Earl pendant light. Integrated within a wall of American Walnut cabinetry, an architectural kitchen features a full suite of Miele appliances including fridge, freezer, microwave, combi steam and conventional ovens, plus induction cooktop, QASAIR Range, Brema icemaker and five function Zip tap alongside a large central island/ dining in magnificent Signorino marble.
