8 Fulham Avenue, South Yarra
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Status: Active
The central idea at 8 Fulham Avenue is that the way we live today is entirely changeable, from one day to the next, and a truly great home will serve that. So, both architecturally and metaphorically, this beautiful place has been curated and crafted to be thrown open to all manner of possibilities whenever it is asked – and it has made it a genuinely delightful place to be. From street side, 8 Fulham is pure tradition – a handsomely elegant home, built in the very early 1900s, and set into lush private gardens in one of South Yarra's most appealing residential pockets – alongside Como Park and just down from Toorak village. And once inside, there's a lovely note to that heritage – the front rooms have retained their footprint and graceful details, while being deliciously updated with new fixtures, finishes and palates that have given every room a sense of purpose, place and personality - the spectacular main bedroom wing is housed here, along with the home's two highly appealing studies. It's the first time you see the home's contract and expand ethos at work, through ingeniously concealed sliding doors – but not the last. Right across this amazing three level home, its clever owners have partnered with talented architect Anthony Pie to create an environment that feels as if it is exactly what is occupants require at exactly that moment. The ground floor for instance has been designed to operate as a highly capable residence in its own right – with a wonderful array of living, dining, entertaining and highly practical spaces that connect all at once, or individually, to the enticing outdoors – the gardens, terraces and pool. Upstairs there are two more wonderful bedrooms, with robes and bathrooms and delightful outlook. And at lower level there's a gym with full bathroom, plus a completely splendid dine-in wine room, and basement garaging for up to five cars. Everything you could ask for in a home – anytime you ask.
