Inside the front door, there’s a home office and sitting area. Walls of glass provide views of the front garden and ivy covered walls.

Outside, there’s a swimming pool that’s surrounded by marble tiling. The use of outdoor greenery and an all white colour palate gives the outdoor space the impression of an exotic oasis located within an inner-city environment.

The home also has a wine cellar that’s partitioned by a floor-to-ceiling glass wall. Hidden lighting creates a showroom-like atmosphere, while a couple of sculptural wood chairs provide a quiet place to enjoy a glass of wine.
