We’ve been doing our walk as best we can while zigzagging along the streets of our beautiful neighbourhood to keep our social distance, and came up with a list of 5 fabulous homes that we have the pleasure of walking past every day. If you have a moment, take a look and let us know what the favourites are on your walk for the next list! (These are in no particular order.)
Joe Adsett and his team certainly cracked the code and made the most efficient and beautiful use of what was a small, pre-war home on a coveted block overlooking Macquarie St and the river. Aptly named, we love the sprawling double-void kitchen-living-outdoor zone featuring the perfect combination of marble, timber and concrete.
Shaun Lockyer and his client truly nailed the complete refurb and extension of a pre-war home that we’ve been enjoying watching as it’s taken shape. The rear entertaining deck with dripping greenery, the architectural concrete; and we don’t mind saying the rear of the home is as good as the incredible street presence at the front! Must have been a very satisfying project for Solido Builders. Fabulous team effort with a stunning result.
Not sure what this one’s called
But how divine is it with its modern take on the classic colonial? A total showpiece of juxtaposing the old and the new.
We’ve always loved this house. More than just a house, as many of you will recall it was also a famed Brisbane restaurant back in the day. In fact, Karen had her 20th birthday there in the central room around the massive dining table that seated around 20. Great memories.
And how could we not mention this one?
An ultra-modern home that sits perfectly on its massive block on the crest of the hill, it’s as though it’s always been there with the vine-covered front garden and what looks like timber from the old woolstores shading the driveway.
