OLD-world charm meets modern flair in this renovated Edwardian. Marshall White selling agent Rae Tomlinson said the vendors lived in the residence for a few years to “get a feel for it” before vacating for a year while the revamp was carried out. They engaged Centrum Architects for the job and the result was impressive. The reno is filled with creative flourishes, from striking custom light fittings through to a mosaic “Bonaparte” feature wall in the main bathroom. The luxury home cinema is a showstopper, fitted with surround sound, leather lounges and velvet acoustic panelling, while the main bedroom overlooks the pool and spa, which are flanked by Jack Merlodesigned gardens.
