It has just been magnificently renovated. It’s unquestionably beautiful – it could be a design magazine cover story. It stands on the fingertip of one of Sydney’s most prestigious peninsulas. This four bedroom Victorian terrace is an executive family masterpiece. And it comes with a long lease.

Open, light-filled and with a remarkable sense of space, the home is now a wonderful fusion of classic and avant-garde features. An ultra-modern family living and dining, lined with retractable glass walls and polished concrete flooring, is juxtaposed with a traditional formal lounge and dining room. These joined rooms are graced with two fireplaces, high ceilings and ceiling roses. The casual living spaces, which include underfloor heating, open to a topiary-lined terrace with ship’s decking flooring and a bluestone lined pool. Exquisitely unconventional chandeliers feature in all major rooms.

The new smoked ash and stainless steel kitchen is a gourmet’s paradise, its custom-designed joinery remarkable.

Upstairs, the traditional corridor has had its ceiling dramatically lifted and replaced with a full-length skylight, filling the whole storey with light.

The master, with its striking woodgrain feature wall, is a sanctuary that includes an elegantly appointed ensuite, a huge his-and-hers walk-in wardrobe and its own balcony.

There’s a home office / fourth bedroom with views over the terrace to the pool.

The second bedroom is especially generous and includes a mounted television and spacious built-in wardrobe. The third bedroom is a child’s delight with its built-in bunk bed standing above a desk for play or homework. The second bathroom is outstanding, its annex housing a free-standing bath for me-time in absolute and private luxury.

All appliances, including as new washing machine and dryer, are provided.
