I love homes with an efficient footprint, a minimal aesthetic and inspired liveability.
You may be surprised, however most definitely delighted, to find this fully renovated energy efficient home privately positioned on a large suburban allotment.
There is no surprise that this retro fitted 1960’s single brick home is found in the suburb of Watson. Watson is a suburb where community spirit, farmer’s markets and local shopping are making a comeback.
The old school suburban dream in Woolcock Street was fulfilled by large land allotments, conventional three bedroom homes surrounded by a neighbourhood of green spaces, community and like minded growing families.
The new school application of the Woolcock home has embraced the fundamental ideals of living in suburban ‘old’ Watson and converted the original footprint of the home to offer a fully renovated modern minimalist style. Open plan living embraces functionality and flexibility catering for the contemporary urban dweller. Clever integration of the outdoor spaces with a connectedness to kitchen gardens, productive plantings and green spaces inspires a wholistic liveability.
The old school and new school Watson appear not to be too dissimilar, young families, community and lifestyle the fundamental and privileged benefits of living in the inner north.
