A Private Inner East Oasis, North Facing Gardens And A Studio Retreat

Sold Confidential

Hidden behind a walled north-facing garden compound, this freestanding c1912 Federation beauty has been transformed by a high-end renovation sympathetic to the home's architectural pedigree. At the quiet end of one of Kensington's finest avenues, Villa Sol y Sombra has been conceived as a private oasis with a heated Mediterranean-style pool as centrepiece to the sun-drenched outdoor space. The site unfolds like a secret garden with a series of alfresco spaces for relaxing or entertaining and a versatile studio with its own entry ideal for those working from home or as a guest cottage (STCA). In a blue-ribbon setting, 200m to East Village with easy access to the city and beaches, the 560sqm property could easily be reconfigured as a 4-5 bedroom home with double garaging and offers scope to add a level (STCA).
