There is the felt experience of being cocooned in luxury with a tangible sense of being held by nature: warm white-on-white, stone, wood and glass surfaces within, melding with the green backdrop of tree canopies without. Delivered over three levels, currie.home reveals a considered eye to design and thoughtful use of materials resulting in a home of enduring quality and contemporary grace.
Behind a wide verge, lined with historic Atlas Pines and established hedges, overlooking parkland and just a few steps from Telopea Park and Manuka Swimming Pool, currie.home, is both ideally located within old Kingston and privately enclosed by garden. Designed by award winning mid-century architect Bill Douglas, the home's distinct appeal is its modernist simplicity, natural light, and outlook.
Thoughtfully and extensively renovated to the highest standards and with an enviro-brief, currie.home effortlessly integrates modernity within the building's architectural bones; the overall effect is one of luxury, with a romantic touch and distinctive Parisian feel. With newly lined and insulated walls housing the hydronic heating and with double glazing throughout, daylight and aspect can be embraced year-round. Currie.home is a sustainable, three-bedroom, avant-garde executive residence.
The façade is classic mid-century – multiple picture windows, contrasting textures of timber, brick, strong architectural lines – sheltered by leafy courtyard, framed by a terrace and accentuated by the clean lines of the panelled front door.
A small entry foyer opens onto the living, dining, kitchen, with warm timber floors and glass-framed floating stairs that lead the eye upward. Flowing to the front terrace on the northern side, this airy, welcoming space, is graced by light and very much the entertaining heart of the home.
The kitchen makes a statement – with terrazzo bench tops, banks of storage, large island bench, luxe inclusions – and opens to an east facing, Parisian balcony, overlooking established trees.
Intimately connected with the other side of the kitchen is the dining area – cleverly delineated by a servery with bespoke glass cabinetry for curated display.
Upstairs there is intimate accommodation with European luxe leanings:
The elegance of the master bedroom, with its floor to ceiling cabinetry, sheer drapery, soft light, north-west frontage and minimalist, simply executed, white ensuite
The pure romance of the main bathroom, with freestanding slipper tub, glass chandelier, and white full length plantation shutters to filter the western, afternoon light
The magic of a secret mini-mezzanine – ideal for contemplation, reading, star-gazing and excellent for storage
The handsome couplet of children's bedrooms with east facing, leafy views, lovely morning light and built-in robes.
Downstairs takes you to the sequestered office and second living space, with internal access to/from the garage. Hushed, poised for creativity, deeply private, yet still connected – think dappled light across generous, contemporary corner bench-top, views to green hedges and beyond, the comings and goings of street and parkland.
Kingston is famous for its lovely combo of old and new – original heritage homes, new apartments, old school restaurants and pubs, contemporary waterfront development and brand-new shopping precinct – offering a plethora of unique shopping, eating, drinking and entertainment experiences.
Old Kingston also offers easy access to the lake with its multiple shared biking and walking paths, thriving Manuka Village and Manuka Swimming Pool, public transport, choice of quality public and private schools, Capital Hill, Russell and the CBD.
