The light and airy, spatial flow of this two-bedroom, top level apartment, is striking. There is a felt experience of openness and relaxed interconnectedness. The veranda extends the living area, provides cross ventilation and blurs the boundaries between outside and in. Views can be enjoyed from the dining table, and the sun-drenched balcony is the ideal vantage point, to watch happenings in the street, bathe in the sunshine, enjoy a glass of bubbles as the sun sets.
Located within the heart of Braddon, on a wide, tree-lined street, close to the vibrant happenings of Lonsdale Street and only a few minutes from the CBD, the home is ideally located, offering a coveted urban lifestyle. Looking assured, behind mature hedges, the bold geometric shape of the façade has an inviting symmetry. The earthy tones of the concrete, combined with black wrought iron, front doors, is reminiscent of a Mediterranean villa.
Inside lies peaceful retreat, the neutral palette and fluid floorplan providing a calm, easy background. The concrete veranda walls provide privacy and shade and double as plantar box – think, productive kitchen and verdant urban garden…a spilling, cascading green wall.
The minimal kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, large island bench, separate pantry and European style laundry, is superbly efficient. Carefully considered accents of muted greys, a splash of olive, create a soothing, invitational warmth. It is easy to imagine, a coming together of family and friends over a shared love of food.
Both bedrooms have vast picture windows, framing views and ushering in daylight. The master bedroom connects to an ensuite bathroom, via a walk-through-robe. The second bedroom has ample built-in cupboards and adjoins a family bathroom.
