Elsternwick Residence
Victoria

This large, five bedroom residence is a tale of two design eras coming together. 

Entering from the side, the broad Edwardian front is in concert with the contemporary zinc-clad extension. The cladding and angled upstairs windows blend with the original slate roof to create a contemporary attic interpretation. From the rear, the full architectural picture appears - two storeys of zinc fins, horizontal timber cladding and large picture windows and doors. Inside, there is an airy, spacious feel. The two high-ceiling hallways form a circular, gliding flow. The open kitchen’s elegant simplicity is a marriage of French oak floor and a massive marble slab bench (also a casual dining table). The bathrooms are quiet places of refuge. Details add further romance - the “upside down soufflé dish” lights in the kitchen, Edwardian slate roof tiles on the pool’s wall and mirrors hidden in the library joinery and under the kitchen bench.
