Kenneth Oliphant design, re-imagined for the modern world
Strong architectural lines, and perfect balance on the block are obvious on approach to 80 Captain Cook Crescent. What is not obvious, is the vast extension and incredibly sympathetic refurbishment, expertly orchestrated by the creative and skilful hand of Thursday Architecture.
An oversized front door opens to fresh generous spaces, and enchanting oak herringbone floors which meander through the multiple living zones and down the expertly lit hallway, spilling off to oversized bedrooms and a sublime master suite, secluded quietly at the rear. The perfect retreat, this master bedroom has it all, lush private garden views, grand proportions, divine walk in robe and a luxury hotel feeling ensuite.
Equally breathtaking, three big living zones, blend but yet maintain their own sense of design. A moody front lounge, chilled and bold with feature gas fireplace and divine corner windows which hint to the 1953 design, then the most light filled airy informal dining and family room with large window seat, perfectly open to the kitchen and covered alfresco, all enjoying gorgeous views of gardens. The large rumpus also provides flexible options as a media room, 5th bedroom or professional office suite. With VZUG, Swiss cooking appliances, cleverly integrated storage and super white marble benchtops and splashback, what is not to love. Although, the desire to move to the alfresco, and cook in the complete outdoor kitchen is something of a challenge of choice and option.
Clever architecture blends original to new, seamlessly. Established richly planted gardens and the shade of a stately old Chinese Elm bring it all together, making this a home that will be a delight now, and for many years to come.
