A splendid three-bedroom triplex overlooking the leafy road of Sutherland Place, this property’s unique design scheme is both visually engaging and enticing. Defined by a Georgian theme that adopts a colourful twist, this period property is both cosy and inviting. Little details from the cornicing to the wooden panelling on the walls gives this home a thoughtful air. An enticing archway borders the entrance to a neat and verdant front garden that precedes this illustrious home. This small, crafted landscape serves as both an appreciation of nature as well as an additional level of privacy.
A generous double reception room occupies the majority of the raised first floor. Substantial wood framed windows fill the room with natural light and is carried through the space by well-placed mirrors. The floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive ceiling height enlarges the dimensions of the room to amplify the airiness and lightness of the space. The predominantly neutral colour palette is juxtaposed with a rhythm of deep reds that are found in both the soft furnishings and the TV stand to balance the space. Eye-catching, patterns reminiscent of the early English era adorn the curtains and cushions. The feature fireplace is a welcome comfort for winter nights, while layering the furniture with throws and soft furnishings enhances the warmth of the room. Hosting is made simple with a caddy and beverage cabinet tucked to the side, ready to be pulled out at a moment’s notice.
On the other side of the reception room sits a classic English country-style dining table, perfectly aligned with the floor-to-ceiling window for optimal lighting. The natural finish of the wooden features creates textural complexity and leaves an organic impression. The statement fireplace has been cleverly repurposed for evening entertaining or a romantic dinner for two. This double reception room is made for socialising with striking displays of modern artwork providing an excellent talking point for the evening.
The kitchen is a fantastic display of wood that glistens under the wealth of natural light. The balcony offers the ideal spot to test your green thumb or grow some herbs for the aspiring chef. Surrounding the room with foliage and organic finishes sets up a connection with the outdoors, as if being embraced by nature. Continuing the appreciation for the outdoors, a balcony sits on the second floor, a go-to for a quick breath of fresh air in the privacy of your own domain or a candle lit drink for a more romantic evening.
The grand proportions of the home are reflected in the upstairs bedroom. The master bedroom is considerately placed for lazy mornings bathed in the rays of the sun while the wall of wardrobes will house a generous collection of clothing. The colour palette is neutral but Georgian detailing prevails and alongside the statement fireplace, elevates the room. More glamorous touches such as the mirrored chest of drawers and the unique rhino lamp keep the room chic. The minimalism of the room allows the owner’s personality and creative flair to shine with visually intriguing images injecting points of interest throughout the room. The Asian-themed paintings are an inspired addition and introduces a global influence into the design scheme. The en-suite will ease the stress of morning routines with his and hers sinks and plenty of room to manoeuvre. Rich wooden furnishings are complemented by polished brassware and the mint green walls continue the Asian-inspired artwork for a harmonious and zen zone. The curved bathtub is inviting treat to wash away the day’s troubles.
The third floor consists of two bedrooms and a family bathroom, all of which mirror the comforting ambience of the rest of the home. Brightly lit but infinitely homely, these rooms are a breath of relief at the end of a long day. An ingeniously positioned desk in the hallway forms a personal nook for remote working next to the full-length window, a refreshing sight for screen-weary eyes. Making use of every inch of this period property, this home is a vibrant ode to traditional design.
