Victorian Grandeur Reinvented, A Perfectly Balanced And Beautifully Considered Family Home On 405sqm

Victorian splendour and cutting-edge design unite in this beachside beauty to deliver a home that's tailor-made for togetherness. Originally built in the early 1890s as part of the historic Lugar Brae Estate, the double-fronted Victorian residence rests on a level 405sqm block on a leafy one-way street easy walking distance down to the beach. A considered redesign pays homage to the past by allowing the original features at the front of the home to shine while the open plan rear reveals a distinctly contemporary edge. Perfect for entertaining, minimalist interiors are complemented by polished concrete, recycled timber and copper finishes and open out to a sunny landscaped garden with a solar-heated pool as centrepiece to family life. With five large bedrooms and a choice of living area, there's plentiful room to live, relax, play and entertain with Macpherson Street's cafes, delis and pocket parks at the end of the street.
