When the stone symmetrical villa flips the script in the edgiest of ways, it’s simply out of this world…
The symmetrical villa might not be foreign to Malvern; but the way this one goes from charmer to architectural game-changer is something else altogether.
Pine floors in a matte lime wash – not polish – set the tone for one surprise after another in a 4-bedroom story that started in 1900 and ended in a script-flipping extension every bit deserving of its HIA Commendation and feature piece by Best Houses Australia.
But first, stop to appreciate the preserved perfection of those original 13-feet high decorative ceilings and fireplaces featuring in two equally sized rooms on either side of an arched hallway.
When you get to the master ensuite – with plantation shutters that open to add greenery to your morning shower – you know something special waits patiently on the other side of a private garden.
And how special it is when that pine turns to the polished concrete that connects an elongated study to zones with their subtle – yet very deliberate – strokes of genius.
Step up to a dining zone with contrasting timber floors and a double-sided ethanol fireplace that imparts the same warmth and ambience onto a formal lounge with a striking bluestone feature wall.
That’s the real genius here; how smooth and hardy textures strike such perfect contrast with earthy, organic materials – such as the exposed brick feature wall – to conjure a timeless edginess.
Speaking of edgy, the kitchen – with Smartstone tops, integrated appliances, 900mm freestanding oven and butler’s pantry – is the Pinterest worthy centrepiece alongside an alfresco pavilion with Heatlie built-in BBQ, more of that polished concrete and sliding stacker doors that make it all one with the world inside…
Where it’s simply out of this world.
