A vacation really feel is on the coronary heart of this Sydney residence

What we did

“The unique bungalow had too many points, so we knocked it down,” says Dale. “The brand new residence is 2 pavilions linked by a corridor and surrounded by lush gardens with a swimming pool. It is sympathetic to the surroundings: pure supplies, photo voltaic panels, rainwater tanks. It has air circulation to minimise airconditioning in summer time and a central courtyard to maximise daylight in winter.”

Favorite room

“The kitchen and its outsized island bench,” says Dale. “We’re foodies – all

of us like to prepare dinner and entertain. It is the guts and soul of the home.”

The ‘hood

“We’re 10 minutes from Bondi and 10 minutes from the town. The ladies stroll to high school. Two minutes after leaving the home I am within the centre of a cosmopolitan village.”

Future plans

“As quickly as my ladies cease having teenage events and Miso now not sharpens his claws on the furnishings, I am going to put money into a luxe Italian lounge suite.”

Greatest recommendation


“Select issues of high quality and genuine provenance and let their easy magnificence do all of the speaking.”
