Designed by Andrew Mellios of AM Architecture, and listed by Jellis Craig, this five bedroom home is a clever take on a familiar brick exterior, where the unassuming driveway shelters the sprawling building behind it. A mix of exposed brick walls, timber flooring and high set ceilings work successfully to make a statement while also creating a warm and inviting central area to assemble the family in, or escape from, with three separate break out living areas throughout the house.
Camberwell is a favourite for families with plenty of parklands, shops and dining spots to explore. The past few years has seen some great new cafe’s and restaurants to hit to scene with Legacy, The Baker’s Wife, Prospect Espresso and Prohibition Food & Wine all garnering their own strong, local following. From this central location, boutique grocery store Leo’s is located just around the corner for all the homes pantry provisions while the local Camberwell markets act as another go-to supplier for fresh fruit and veg, cheese, meat and take home meals. For entertainment, the Rivoli cinema is an art deco gem that comes with all of the classic old warm charm of a bygone era and is one of our favourite places to catch a Sunday afternoon movie.
Taking in the parkland views, the open-plan living and dining area is the beating heart of the home with floor to ceiling windows inviting nature to provide the perfect backdrop. Earthy textures of exposed bricks and natural timber are balanced with state of the art appliances such as the floating Focus fireplace from Oblica, and a neutral colour palette of greys and meadow hues. For those who love to cook, the kitchen boasts some top-shelf technology of its own, with wall ovens by Gaggenau and a fully integrated fridge by Liebherr. Even for the family time-averse teenager, this is a space that draws everyone closer, relaxed and communal.
