National and State Building Design Awards Winner – 2004 and 2005
Aptly labelled “The Tardis has Landed” by Urbanize architect John Sneddon
“Meaning a building or container that is larger inside than it appears to be from the outside”
This winning design was awarded in the category of Multi residential – Duplex/small lot semi -detached category. These charming homes are both an integrated part of the Iconic Cloisters Complex.
The property for sale occupies the corner position. Tuck-pointed and north facing, it extends along the southern boundary of the buildings. The front elevation and historical street view has been cleverly retained with the old chimney breast intact and seamless modern take on the extended three level additions. Home to the architect since inception, John certainly knew how to put his own stamp on it and modified the living areas to his own liking. It’s now time for a new owner to take it up a notch and reap the benefits.
Many Features of the design include:
The ability to open up the courtyard walls to allow the whole of the entry level as one space for entertaining large groups. The central courtyard has bi-fold and sliding glazed doors.
The home office can be used as a study, formal lounge or retreat space.
Two spacious bedrooms,
Two bathrooms with extensive use of stone and travertine,
Spacious kitchen with extensive benchtops, ample cupboards.
There are two store rooms and a rear lock up parking bay.
This is a must view for all discerning renovators and those seeking that unique project in a prime central Subiaco location.
