The contemporary interpretation of this 1920’s modern classic will appeal to most luxury loving families in search of spacious living in the family friendly suburb of Camberwell in Melbourne. Positioned in a tree lined street, surrounded by good schools and parks in almost every direction, the beauty of this house is not only the neighbourhood in which is sits but also the cleverly designed floor plan that allows for easy spatial flow.

With the large scale open plan living areas lined in timber flooring and white washed walls featuring throughout, this two-storey home allows for an easy flow of outdoor and indoor entertaining without losing its sense of a warm, tactile charm.
Material variations have been kept to a minimum in the design of the modern family home with bluestone pavers, timber decking and cement rendered walls forming the exterior. Inside Corian bench tops, black metal pendant lights, oak floorboards and wool carpets in a shade of donkey grey continue the monochromatic scheme.
Custom built cabinetry features throughout each of the four bedrooms including the home office, with the upstairs teenagers retreat angled to capture the city glimpses. Stone features prominently in each of the four bathrooms while the spacious ensuite off the parents bedroom retreat boasts a floor to ceiling window wall that takes in the greenery of the private garden.
With ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning the notorious Melbourne winters can be left at the front door with a flick of a switch while open fireplaces allow for further ambience and atmosphere on demand. Ducted vacuum, automatic gates and security system make this a complete home with all mod cons already taken care of.
Conveniently located a short walk away from the Burke Road tram line and Camberwell Junction, the best Sunday morning breakfasts for the health conscious can be sampled just down the road at Legacy on Camberwell Road while My Other Brother next to the Camberwell Markets offers breakfast of a more hearty kind. Their giant muffins are a firm favourite of ours.
