DE­SIGNED by ar­chi­tect Shaun Lock­yer, this two-storey res­i­dence ex­udes con­tem­po­rary liv­ing with a seam­less flow be­tween in­door and out­door spa­ces.

Built in a quiet and pri­vate lo­ca­tion on 607sq m of flat, grassy land, the house com­bines a min­i­mal street pres­ence with a de­sign style that dif­fers from floor to floor.

Through the front door on the up­per level, the rem­nants of an orig­i­nal 1920s worker’s cot­tage have been con­verted into four plush and spa­cious bed­rooms.

The bed­rooms are lo­cated off a cen­tral hall­way, with the main in the far left cor­ner of the house. De­signed to make the most of nat­u­ral light and space, the main bed­room has ex­pan­sive glass win­dows tak­ing ad­van­tage of an un­in­ter­rupted leafy out­look, as well as a walkin wardrobe and an en­suite with twin van­i­ties, tim­ber cab­i­netry and tiled floor­ing.

Ad­join­ing this bed­room, on the right side of the house, is a fam­ily room with a void over­look­ing the down­stairs liv­ing space. In front of the fam­ily room is a bath­room, again with dou­ble van­i­ties, tim­ber cab­i­netry and tiled floor­ing.

Also on the up­per level is another bed­room to the left of the en­trance, as well as a dou­ble garage with in­ter­nal en­try op­po­site a stair­case lead­ing to the lower level.

Down­stairs, an open-plan kitchen, liv­ing and din­ing space fea­tures pol­ished con­crete floor­ing and ex­tends through tim­ber and glass slid­ing doors to a cov­ered tim­ber and tiled pa­tio.

From the pa­tio, steps lead down to a glass fenced, 9.5m pool.

The kitchen is ap­pointed with a but­ler’s pantry, Cala­catta mar­ble, Cae­sar­Stone splash­back, spot­ted gum pol­ished tim­ber and Miele ap­pli­ances, with a door open­ing to the side of the prop­erty.

To the front of the lower level is a study nook, bath­room, another liv­ing area and stor­age space with out­door ac­cess.

Com­ple­ment­ing the house’s mix of pol­ished con­crete, tim­ber and car­pet floor­ing is a neu­tral colour scheme, and all bed­rooms have built-in wardrobes.
