the new 7 duffy street

#soldbyholly $1,830,000

Like most decades, they were defined by world events, fashions, technology and attitude. Fresh, futuristic, fly, the new 7 Duffy Street Ainslie has personality.

Like Doc Martens and that old jacket that never dates, a timeless trend and well-worn piece that you can keep forever, the 1990's are still on-trend and it seems they just keep getting better. Reinvented and revisited with white washed interiors, a pastel palette and pops of colour, inevitably we gravitate to the familiar, the design and fashion that fits well with who we are and our experience of home.

Cast your mind back, to days where being tethered to your phone literally meant hiding around the corner while trying to get privacy on the one landline phone in the house, its cable stretched to its limits (or maybe you were one of the lucky ones with a cordless phone). Back to when the Internet was a concept, mobile phones were a luxury afforded by few and the size of a brick, where the denim was stonewashed and we wore Air Jordans. Our t-shirts were oversized and our shorts were extra long. This was the nineties, and life was good. 
In many ways it was a simpler time, connections mostly happened in person. We indulged in the home with our friends and family, CD's sprawled out over the living room floor, glass of wine in hand and style trends emerged that have endured against all odds. We entertained at home.

The new 7 Duffy Street Ainslie is liveable and flexible, with multiple spaces for dining and entertaining, an outdoor terrace and courtyards to break away and bedroom spaces to retreat. It is a home we can relate to, recall our own life experience of this time, this place and this decade, and envisage our future.
A relaxed and easy style of living, the functional and thoughtful floor plan works, and just keeps working. 30 years on, as your family grows and changes around you, the home easily evolves to cater for multi generational living, extended family or simply just a desire to have space.

Pitched vaulted ceilings and living spaces are delineated by levels and steps. Calming verdant surrounds, layers of deep green lawn and gardens, and serene garden rooms resonate through picture windows framing external views from every aspect and living space of the home.

The meticulous, original features in this home are to be celebrated. Although of a different time and streetscape to the neighbouring redbrick cottages, the new 7 Duffy Street represents an era that is symbolic of architecture and design that should be equally protected and future proofed with the same respect and care. This home is generous in its floor plan, flooded in light, and emphasising connection to the outdoors and its spectacular garden. It's a home for a family, a space for those connections to happen effortlessly, designed to live, entertain and grow.

In the 1990s there was nothing that couldn't be done.  We had edge, we had heart, we had style - we were tough, but introspective. Innovative, entrepreneurial  and original. It's the decade that has always found itself in between. Sometimes mistaken for the '80's, or merging with the 2000's, until now. 
The new 7 Duffy Street Ainslie is cool, it's got x factor and can easily be transported to be your home of 2021 and beyond. Let's face it, the 1990s just keep getting better.
