Australian House & Garden

A sanctuary for its owners, this inner-city courtyard complete with rustic fireplace and built-in seating provides privacy and serenity. Nestled within a sea of other stately terrace houses in the heart of Sydney, the outdoor room sweeps daylight and verdant vistas into the heritage home. Included as part of a more extensive renovation by Bianca Fraser of The Unlisted Collective, the landscaped domain also provides a leafy link between the principal house and a separate garage with studio above. “The limestone paving, steel doors and the light that filters into the home are important, as terraces are traditionally very dark,” says Bianca.
