Designed by renowned architect Bill Toomath, this three-bedroom home, with two bedroom separately accessed apartment, is the apotheosis of mid-century architecture.

Respectful renovations nod to the home's provenance, seamlessly incorporating the linear, edited and post- modern architectural lines, elevating the original glamourous exterior facade.

Cleverly positioned, Toomath's artful eye illustrates his appreciation for the unique quality of the landscape, located amongst Kelburn's elite addresses.

The entrance foyer welcomes guests into a convivial space and strong design concepts include a centralised stairwell that acts as the structural spine, beckoning visitors to the upper floor.

The open plan living spaces on the ground floor are spatially generous with an interconnected design that allow for family dynamics to shift and shape.

Newly installed floor-to-ceiling fully retractable double-glazed doors in the living space open to a deck, maximising indoor/outdoor flow.

A contemporary gas fireplace adds mood, while the complimentary gas central heating keeps the remainder of the home cosy.

Large feature windows illuminate the intimate views of the inner CBD and the intense moody blue aura of Wellington's harbour basin. A swathe of green tempts the peripheral eye, with the neighbouring Botanical Gardens on the home's doorstep.

The modern white kitchen with a large centralised black countered island bench acts as the hub and allows relaxed entertaining with the immediate adjacent dining space.

Separate access to the apartment below also gently leads visitors .... to a 'secret ' garden with a flat lawn, bordered with overflowing fruit trees and a paved area for entertaining, a perfect contemplation spot.

A mid-century classic... seductively sleek and desirable ... this home's architecture hums ...
