In the brutalist style inspired by The Barbican Centre in London – sits this superbly remodelled apartment townhouse in the perfect Parkside location.
The shared spaces of City Edge include native gardens and thoughtful conveniences; like being able to step out if your car under cover, elevated walkways to keep guests above and away from driveways and angles sympathetic to the nature around.
More recently, interior architect Beatrix Rowe has celebrated the original light-filled 1970s vernacular in her restyling of the kitchen cabinetry and bathroom. Her clever space planning has enabled a laundry cupboard on one side and an appliance nook for microwave next to a dishwasher drawer and integrated fridge on the other of the entry joinery. This elegant jigsaw puzzle of design is typical of her work. This joinery piece creates an intentionally private entryway beyond the wrought iron security door made by father and son team who also made the gates at Flemington race track.
Underfloor heating thermostatically controlled below terrazzo tiles & track lightning. Large utility storage space under the stairs with custom joinery open to a mix of informal living and dining area that progress seamlessly to the large open terrace with views across the Park.
At the top of the stairs the landing office is large enough to be a workable space thanks to the custom joinery in the storage area over the stairs (some 3 meters deep)
The 2 way bathroom features a custom triple-glazed skylight with argon gas infill to ensure great insulation on hot summer days. Wall sconces by Articolo and pink marble vanity top custom joinery.
Two bedrooms have been joined by simply removing a section of the interconnecting wall. This can be easily reinstated as both doors are still operational and the bathroom has two entry doors. This thoughtful design was intentional to allow future owners options.
