STYLISH REVAMP IS NEAR PERFECT
PLENTY of thought has gone into the contemporary and very appealing revamp of this Como townhouse, which is in a very tidy group of four just minutes from the popular Preston Street cafe precinct.
Styled and designed predominantly by one of the owners – an interior stylist – the home now features light and airy rooms with a functional floor plan that works perfectly for modern living.
“There are bathrooms on both levels and they now have timber-look tiling on the floors and feature walls,” the owner said.
“Our kitchen has also been redesigned to arrange all cooking activities into a smooth and efficient workflow.”
The home also has three good-sized bedrooms with built-in robes – one on the ground floor – an open-plan family/dining room adjoining the kitchen, a spa bath in the downstairs bathroom, a small study nook upstairs and a renovated laundry with ample storage.
“One of the other major changes on the second floor was conversion of the unused balcony into an additional retreat area,” the owner said.
“It has created additional, useful living space and worked beautifully for our baby cot; later on it can be used as a nice nook.”
Outside, the garden has lush lawns and batu timber screening defining the alfresco entertaining area.
“Our garden is so special; we have lots of nicely arranged plants in there, we are growing vegetables and herbs, and are very proud of it,” the owner said.
“The kids love to play in the garden and can be left there on their own as the area is fully enclosed.”
Other features include secure parking with loft-style storage above, a storeroom, an alarm system and garden reticulation.
