Just moments from the Eastern Freeway, this contemporary townhouse is marked by a refined material palette and a clever balance of indoor and outdoor living spaces.
At the bottom of a hill in a quiet streetscape, the newly built townhouse is one of two. Set well back from the street on a deep block, it has all the attraction of an architect-designed home.

In a nod to the surrounding mid-century properties, the house has a pitched roofline. Its facade is a mix of different materials all in shades of grey. Stone tiles frame the garage door, while a fine timber colonnade marks the entrance.
A solid black door opens to a surprisingly generous hallway lined with Italian travertine tiles, which run through most of the house.
Wide stairs lead down to a bedroom, which has built-in wardrobes and private access to a bathroom. Separated from the main sleeping quarters above, this bedroom is ideal for guests or adult children.
The open kitchen, dining and living area is where day-to-day life is played out. The kitchen is stylish and practical and, like the rest of the house, it has a big emphasis on storage.
Drawers and cupboards are masterfully concealed behind black timber lining boards. White Caesarstone benchtops and integrated Miele appliances add to its impressive raft of features.
From the living room, floor-to-ceiling glass doors spill out to a raised deck and swimming pool adjoining the house. With northern orientation, this outdoor area can be used throughout the day.
When the sun does start to set, residents can retreat to the west-facing upstairs terrace. A second living area here has a cathedral ceiling that enhances the feeling of space.
Further down the hall are three bedrooms, all with glazed windows and wardrobes. The spacious main bedroom at the end has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite with a freestanding bath.
The interiors employ a strict black and white colour scheme – not including the stone floors. Almost everywhere you look, white walls and surfaces are disrupted by stylish graphite tapware or sleek black door handles.
This elegant detailing of joinery, recesses and fittings reveal the considered way in which the whole house has been crafted.
