Randwick 58 Hooper Street
Architectural Harmony On The Edge Of Queens Park
The newly completed reinvention of this early 1900s home in a prized pocket of Randwick North pays tribute to the past while embracing the light and taking full advantage of a due north rear aspect. A stunning addition to the streetscape with a French-style copper dormer window and restored bullnose verandah, the architect-designed family home stands as a lasting testament to architectural innovation that seamlessly blends aesthetics, functionality and sustainable living. A sun-filled open concept living area is flooded in sunshine and designed to embrace a north-facing garden while bedrooms are conceived as private sanctuaries, two ensuite and the master with a tranquil open outlook. With only one neighbour, the home maximises its open aspects to the north and east, flooding the rooms with natural light and air. Designed with passive design principles at its core, the home's material palette of natural stone, Carrara marble, reclaimed timber and repurposed bricks creates a sense of harmony and longevity while a lock-up garage with a studio retreat above makes for happy family life. With only the front facade kept of the original house, the home is essentially a brand new build. An easy 200m stroll down Hooper Lane to Queens Park's playing fields and wide open spaces, this community minded neighbourhood is 600m to Charing Cross village with great schools all around and just a few minutes to Bronte and Clovelly Beaches.
