Architecturally Transformed Californian Bungalow

This charming c1930's double brick Californian bungalow is set halfway between the villages of Leura and Katoomba; a quintessential vernacular Australian architecture that has been brought back to life. The floor plan is seamless in its design with the new addition concealed to the rear of the home and discreetly hidden within its surrounding context and streetscape.

The quality and subtle detail in the fixtures and fittings are second to none. Everything is bespoke; European oak engineered timber floors throughout, hydronic underfloor heating, Portuguese combustion fireplace, locally sourced rosewood timber windows & doors and handmade Italian light fittings. The open plan kitchen and living area is the core of the home. While the floor to ceiling timber windows draw in light, timber cabinetry and a layered material palette in the kitchen create a warm and casual feeling. Volakas marble island bench, birch marine plywood cabinets with exposed edges, Spanish handmade tiles, finished with high end Smeg and Bosch stainless steel appliances.

The master bedroom to the rear of the home features custom Italian built-in chest of drawers, custom fabric lamp shade, large en-suite which features light blue Spanish handmade tiles, Italian made custom vanity; velvet lacquered top and chestnut veneer, Villeroy & Boch inserted bathtub, Italian porcelain lamp shades and Italian antique mirror. The main bathroom features light green Spanish handmade wall tiles, hand painted floor tiles, Italian made oak veneer custom vanity and a European oak timber lining behind the toilet.

The natural flow between internal and external space is created by timber french doors in the dining area, a small accessible courtyard and a pivot door that connects the house to the rear garden. The charred timber blackbutt cladding of the extension and the hardwood timber of the shed, both naturally marry with the landscaping of native plants and sandstone boulders.

A stunning architectural masterpiece that is of the highest quality. The home has a warm and inviting ambience making it the perfect mountains weekend retreat or permanent residence.
