Take a Victorian terrace house,
on the heritage register,
tucked into a pretty little street in East Melbourne.
Add the considered eye of young firm Nic Owen Architects,
a willingness to build with integrity and quality,
lots of beautifully detailed junctions and simple finishes,
and the result is a home which cherishes the old while celebrating the new.
This house is no stranger to the world of the public eye,
as it was a finalist in last year's Houses awards in the heritage section.
But it's now on the market,
Some very clever and thoughtful detailing in this joinery
of the bookshelves and desk.
The stone wall is a wonderful contrast with the polished concrete floor, too:
contrasting the old style with the new.
It's a warm and welcoming house,
ready for the new owners to place their own stamp on it with their furniture,
but the design is confident enough to hold its own without dominating.
Would you love to live here?
