Urban Stylish Century

4 3 7 2


Located in one of Sydney’s most central suburban locations, this renovated Californian bungalow combines timeless traditional style with luxe modern finishes. It is spacious, yet inviting; luxurious, yet homey, and is perfect for anyone hoping to experience Sydney like a local.

The front of the home, complete with a double-space carport and lush green front garden, leads off from a tiled pathway onto a traditional bungalow porch. A rustic wrought iron gate leads down a side path to the backyard, while the front door is protected by a security screen and deadlock.

Upon entering, the front half of the home, which has been preserved with its 1920s ornate ceilings and updated with recycled dark-wood polished floorboards, holds two bedrooms and a formal loungeroom. Both bedrooms are street-facing, with wide windows, plantation louvers and carpeted floors.
The main bedroom is spacious and luxe, with a queen-sized bed, wall-to-wall wardrobe and Art-Deco dressing table. An ensuite leads off the bedroom, with a rain shower and skylight that drenches the room in sun. Further down the hallway is an opulent formal lounge room, entered via glass French doors and perfect for after-dinner drinks or relaxing in the morning with a coffee.

The modern extension of the home is located in the back half, tiled entirely in Italian travertine and with underfloor heating throughout. It is an open-plan living, kitchen and dining space, with a butler’s pantry, internal laundry, main bathroom with rain shower, and separate back toilet. The interiors are plush and contemporary, accented by a double-level sea-grass feature wall and sculptured feature lighting over the dining area.

It is more than easy to bring the outside in, with floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors that fold into the wall space to create an expansive entertaining area with greenery, swimming pool, BBQ kitchen and outdoor lounge space. Everything from landscaping to lighting has been thought of to create a tranquil and inviting atmosphere, perfect from summer through to winter.

Upstairs is a peaceful and spacious bedroom retreat, with an open-plan sitting room and study that leads into two double bedrooms. An expansive shared balcony overlooks the backyard, furnished with plush outdoor furniture and making it the perfect spot for unwinding after a long day. The bathroom holds a bathtub, rain shower and wall-to-wall cupboard and drawer storage, drenched in sunlight from sunrise to sunset.

Kensington is walking distance from Centennial Park, Randwick Racecourse, the University of New South Wales, Sydney Cricket Ground and Coogee Beach, and within twenty minutes’ drive from the CBD, surrounding beaches like Bondi and Bronte, and Sydney’s trendy inner city hubs. Its perfect location and quiet residential atmosphere makes it the perfect spot for any holiday, business trip or extended stay. You may never want to leave


We really enjoyed the house and would look to stay again when next we visit!
