Period homes in beautiful streets just stand out and 13 Gladstone Parade is by far one of the most beautiful looking homes sitting proudly on the high side of the street.
When I enter a home to review, it sometimes gives me a feeling that inspires me. This home lifts me up and restores my faith in designers, architects and the owner’s of homes such as these, who I believe have a responsibility to restore homes of this period and magnitude to make sure generations to come will still be able to enjoy them.
The owner’s of this home have taken on this brief with outstanding results. The soaring ceiling heights and wide floorboards lead the way through to a formal lounge to one side, and a study you may not want to leave on the other! The formal dining room has access through to the very large bespoke kitchen.
Here, the Calcutta marble bench tops are a stand out along with Miele appliances and the use of various textures and materials from the black and gold cabinetry, glass and even beautiful door hardware, presenting as one of the most sophisticated looking kitchens I have seen in a long time.
As the heart of a home this space lures you in asking you to create new memories where family problems will be solved and fun and exciting times shared.
Fiona Lynch has excelled in this residential project with stunning steel framed doors and windows in the extended portion of the home adding clean lines and an almost French provincial feel. Paint colours, fixtures and fittings all come together with ease.
The Eckersley designed gardens are evident from the moment you enter the front gate to the view from the windows and balcony upstairs. The gardens connection with the home is well balanced and appropriately sophisticated.
While there are still spaces within the home that in time will need to be updated like the master ensuite, main bathroom or the downstairs powder room and laundry all of the main rooms, bedrooms and of course stunning open plan kitchen living and dining spaces do not need to be touched.
A huge wine cellar, Hydronic heating, five bedrooms and double lock up garage, built in trampoline, formal and informal living spaces, formal and informal dining spaces and study make this a potential ‘forever’ home.
Securing this home will need more than just luck on the day. Knowing where you need to be to be successful and where your potential competition is coming from will be so important.
