‘Green House’ of Rozelle
A Carter Williamson Architects design known as the ‘Green House‘, this is one celebrated Peninsula residence.
Built around a large courtyard garden with a studio sitting atop the garage, it’s a private entertainer within its own amphitheatre. The current owners have added their own touches and meticulous upkeep, ensuring the home remains true to original intentions, while rising to the next level.
The indoor/outdoor entertaining space all happens alongside the pool, barbecue setting, and backyard terraces.
Opening via voids, courtyards and lightwells, the home is dressed in concrete floors, and warm stone and timber finishes. The high-end kitchen has an Ilve fit out, and the ‘guest suite’ has a flexible garden aspect while opening to the living space.
A generous timber island anchors the centre of the home; part workspace, part sculpture and impromptu dinner table, it is the nucleus of family life.
Upstairs the spaces are quiet and secluded, with a custom library room separated by glass, with views to the sky.
The home accommodates a wide range of living styles within its layered footprint, with plenty of room for a growing family, to accommodate guests, or to use as a workspace.
The studio/garage is a bonus for this urban pocket, and has been designed to maintain a green band of vegetation consistent with neighbouring properties.
Deliberately low maintenance, the house is dressed in robust face brick and glass mosaic tiles that easily hose down, while providing colour and texture to the building for a playful, graphic feel.
All this in a private laneway setting, so close to the CBD.
