House of the week: 51 Rear Indian Grove
This is no ordinary coach house, and for over $4 million, it had better be something special. The historic place is three storeys, four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The current owners have done it up in a Scandinavian-inspired design. The combination of light wood and white walls adds a lovely sense of modernity to the century old home, and the exposed brick and soaring ceilings create a hard loft vibe.
The main floor is open concept, with the living room, kitchen and dining room all flowing seamlessly between each other. The big doors that lead out to the backyard let tons of natural light filter into the home.
The kitchen is sleek and stylish with white quartz and brass features.
On the second floor is the family room and two bedrooms. The space are bright thanks to the light wood floors and big windows.
The two bedrooms share a jack-and-jill bathroom. Just remember to shut both doors when using it!
On the third floor there’s the master suite and a fourth bedroom. The master suite is spacious with a large walk-in closet and a spacious en suite.
As this is the rear portion of a property, there isn’t a lot of backyard space. But the space there is beautifully done. The large stone patio and all the big trees create a beautiful little spot to sit out during the evening.
Minimalists. The design in this house is Scandinavian minimalism at its finest. It’s like a Kinfolk magazine come to life and I’m here for it.
You aren’t big on sharing. This is a laneway property after all, so you do have to share the lot with another home. If you’re not a fan of the neighbour, things might not go so well.
