Architectural perfection in Fitzroy North.

This 1910s Victorian residence in one of Fitzroy’s iconic leafy streetscapes has been lovingly re-constructed in 2018 by its current owners, to seamlessly integrate the original facade with a unique and feature filled new build (complete from slab to roof). The result is a space that is modern with a sense of familiarity, open and vast with a sense of intimacy and minimalist with everything you could ever need.

Be welcomed through the distinctive arched doorway to an abundance of light provided by the property’s many strategically placed skylights. The first of three large bedrooms is complete with BIRs whilst the second bedroom has convenient side courtyard access. The sleek central bathroom is complete with floor to ceiling tiles, reconstituted stone basins and bath as well as heated towel rails.

Instantly you’ll be taken by the central feature of the home; a custom metal staircase with built-in shelving and rolling ladder. A stunning yet practical focal point that provides not only passage to the second level but also ample storage along with it.

Along with Asko appliances, the kitchen showcases even more stunning features such as the stone bench tops and splashback, stunning large scale balloon pendants and an extended timber server shelf as well as the main attraction – a striking sculptural range-hood suspended from the top of the building, integrating the feature hexagonal detail that can be seen throughout the property. Additionally you’ll find the floating 2 pack cabinetry unit that bookends the kitchen and European laundry, craftily engineered not to reach the ceiling, allowing uninterrupted light to peak in over the construction.

The second level reveals the master retreat complete with luxurious double basin ensuite, even more in built storage and home office positioned neatly along side a glass balustrade, overlooking the open void. Privacy takes precedence in this area with external timber batten screens (also featured on the west facing windows of the property) not only providing a sense of design consistency but also refuge, cleverly engineered so that the weather is filtered outwards whilst allowing the light to beam inwards.

The dining and living areas spill out to a generous courtyard of spotted gum decking with integrated seating, complete with well maintained greenery (provided by an automated watering system), shade and cover, draw-back clothesline and most importantly single carport off street parking with in-built storage. Rearaccess is provided via a wide street, allowing an easy turning circle for any sized vehicle.

Exposed beams, Blackbutt flooring, hydronic heating, 2000 litre water tank, secure intercom, data cabling, and energy efficient LED lighting also feature throughout this impressive home.

If you love clever construction, innovative and considered design as well as practical living, you’ll love this architectural build which pulls together all its many elements so effortlessly and with the highest of design integrity. A project that can only be born from a true collaboration between a talented artist and passionate owners with a vision for perfection.
