Easy on the eye

This Balmoral abode has had to get used to admiring glances from neighbours and passers-by. The revitalised villa, positioned on a prominent corner section, has gone from eyesore to eye-catching.

Full refurbishment of the crumbling structure included demolition of a half-completed extension to the rear, which was then extended a further 5m. A large open-plan living space now flows out to the expansive private yard. The contemporary kitchen is equipped with all the modcons, making this a dream home for entertainers. To ensure the residence didn’t lose any of its original charm, all key character features have been retained, restored or replicated. Meanwhile, a modern injection has given the interior a luxurious, inviting feel.

No expense has been spared in upgrading fittings to today’s standards. The large central hallway, complete with detailed timber mouldings, leads to three bedrooms, and a separate living room with fireplace. A luxurious ensuite serves the master bedroom. The main bathroom with stylish black tub is well suited to family life.
