Melbourne's Laneway House
Designed and executed by WilsoniD in close collaboration with the owner and the recipient of 8 design awards including Building Design of the Year https://news.bdav.org.au/awards/rose-south-yarra/ this bespoke home is both robust and unconventional and a welcome departure from the norms of residential design in the inner suburban context. It is an exceptionally skilled ordering of a diverse range of materials and forms which results in a warm, light filled and energetic house. Everything about this award winning home oozes quality with the clever use of both new and recycled/reclaimed materials. The in-floor hydronic heating downstairs and radiators upstairs provide cosy warmth throughout the Melbourne winter whilst in the summer the home is designed to make use of crossflow breezes via the upstairs louvred windows which are electronically operated for ease of use. The home offers three spacious bedrooms, the main with ensuite, WIR and generous storage in all three, second large family bathroom (with bath) to service the further two bedrooms and a downstairs powder room. Upon entry to the home is a sunken lounge room offering a quiet space to read, watch TV or just relax. There is the stunning open plan kitchen overlooking the dining and casual living areas that open up via floor to ceiling industrial steel bi-folds to the deck and outdoor garden providing that delightful indoor/outdoor feel. Enjoy breakfast at the bench overlooking the indoor garden and open up the bifold windows again to enjoy the fresh air and spaciousness. The opportunity of working at home is made extremely comfortable in the office adjacent to the internal courtyard offering a relaxing space from which to operate. The property also has a remote control garage for one car, onsite parking space and permit parking available for onstreet parking if required; air conditioning, ceiling fans, an outdoor shower off the main bedroom, balconies, security system and wood combustion heater. Enjoy the short walk to Fawkner Park, Toorak Road shops and restaurants, public transport at the top of the street as well as the close proximity to the Botanic Gardens, St. Kilda Road and Chapel Street shopping. Whatever the season, this is a beautiful space to reside in. Note that all garden maintenance is included with the property.
