Step inside this award-winning Melbourne home designed by Wood Marsh in the vibrant suburb of South Yarra, which features dramatic shadow play and a rich material palette.
Constructed by the firm in 1996, the two-bedroom Melbourne property swiftly secured the Harold Desbrowe-Annear Award for the best residential project, thanks to its secluded yet sophisticated design. Crafted from brick and adorned with wall-to-wall glazing and a porthole-style window (a homage to South Yarra’s art deco heritage), the house is enveloped by lush, landscaped gardens, creating a tranquil sanctuary away from the street.
Upon entering, the ground floor boasts soaring 3.3m high ceilings and a flowing layout seamlessly extending into the gardens. Jarrah wood floors run underfoot, while the kitchen has bespoke rosewood cabinets and black terrazzo countertops.
On the upper level, you’ll find two skylit bedrooms with custom storage and vistas over the garden.
Hawksburn Village and Prahran Market are within walking distance, offering a variety of boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants, while Melbourne’s famous Royal Botanic Gardens is approximately 2.8 km away.
