Inner City Masterpiece
Once the site of a lively print factory, a busy studio for various artists, and now an astonishing transformation within the walls of 8 Tuckfield St; a unique and extraordinary residence designed by renowned award-winning architect David Hillam.
Drawing on its former manufacturing roots, showcasing authentic industrial features and sleek minimalist design, a palette of natural elements and textures highlight original steel trusses, beautiful recycled timber, marble, exposed polished aggregate, whitewashed brickwork, steel columns and glass, perfectly harmonizing a seamless transition between old and new.
A long entrance hall bordered by dark recycled timber allows a tantalizing glimpse of vast open spaces beyond. A peaceful sitting room/library to the front has whitewashed walls, high sloped ceilings, black steel work and structural pillars, beautiful integrated timber bookcases, floating timber cabinetry and beautiful double-sided open wood burning French fireplace.
Living areas are artistic and designed to engage at every turn. Sky high ceilings, steelworks and vast expanses of glass frame rich foliage and vivid blue skies, cascading light and life inwards, capturing glorious sea breezes
Matte aggregate floors, whitewashed walls and soaring ceilings define breathtaking central family spaces to deliver grand scale living and entertaining – an inviting fireplace and comfy sofas for watching TV, a spot to chat, relaxed in leather armchairs and room to dine with family and friends, opposite a temperature-controlled wine store.
A sleek streamlined galley kitchen accompanies open plan living areas, beautifully designed with stainless steel counters and splash backs, banks of drawers in fiery red, 5 burner cook top, integrated wall ovens, space for 2 side by side fridge/freezers, with walls of floor to ceiling white cabinetry and a very useful laptop/charging/admin station.
Oversized glass stacking doors open via kitchen and living areas to a glorious walled courtyard retreat. Partially enclosed by the original building with steel rafters, with a corrugated roof and a quirky timber door leading nowhere or anywhere A recycled timber deck, sunlight filtering through leaves of a beautiful coral tree, space to entertain a crowd, or relax in the shade; an oasis of tranquility and haven of serenity

A statement steel beam staircase rises to the upper level open walkway and magnificent master suite.
