An original federation home in Sydney’s Bondi Beach had a top to toe renovation including the addition of a second storey that brought light and bright beachside living to this heritage home. A narrow Shaker style door with curved panels to the island bench creates a style that is a modern interpretation of a federation kitchen to suit contemporary family living.
The footprint was completely reimagined to include a highly functional laundry which is tucked away behind panelled doors. The natural stone mosaic and floating shelves add beauty to this often overlooked space.
The redesigned layout also includes a Butler’s Pantry which provides ample room for appliances and drygoods with plenty of bench space for preparation. A second sink, bin and dishwasher allow it to function as a scullery making entertaining effortless and keeping the main kitchen clutter free.
Traditional exposed breach taps in a specialty aged brass finish pick up the gold flecks in the stone benchtops. The undermount fireclay sink harmonise with the heritage nature of the home with wainscoted wall panelling completing the look.
Rich and warm interior finishes meet with a family designed layout and practical surfaces. A splashback window keeps the feeling light and spacious. The kitchen flows into the adjacent living and dining areas then out to the alfresco outdoor entertaining and leafy back yard.
