With its bullnose verandas and characterful stone replacing the tired pebbledash façade, Kings Residence appears to be a thoughtful renovation of an early-1900s home. But behind the charming exterior restoration lies a revelation.

This four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is replete with the finest materials and carefully crafted heritage features, from the stained-glass entry to the wainscoting throughout.

Yet, with its minimalist aesthetic, these finishes are merely the backdrop for the bold interior design flourishes that imbue this home’s heritage character with our clients’ personalities: lion and lioness mosaics; an iconic brass Ralph Lauren billiard chandelier; the statement mantelpiece mirror; intriguing artworks, including a beguiling tryptic.

But at the same time, this is a functional home. A family home equipped for enjoying life and year-round entertaining. Take the outdoor entertaining area, with its block-out blinds and electric heaters for the winter months and water misters for the summer. Or the 12.5m swimming pool with both solar and electric heating. Or the home theatre, with a 100-inch TV and 7.1 surround sound system.

Kings Residence is both a work of art and state-of-the-art, a faithful heritage renovation and unapologetically contemporary reinterpretation.
