Kensington Townhouse

A beautiful and well-built Victorian Townhouse filled with endless potential. The house has good bones, and with and a vivid imagination, Gabriel Jacka breathes new life into this faded beauty.

From the street, this understated Victorian Townhouse painted in battle ship grey with warm white trims, looks very settled under a giant flowering Jacaranda with no more embellishment than a striking green door with an antique lions head knocker.
As soon as one enters into the small but quite gracious entry hall, they are greeted by an ornate hand carved mirror that leads them into the elegantly laid out lounge. 

The lounge is filled with an eclectic arrangement of pieces; from an antique mirrored commode and a bone inlayed desk mixed with a modern Italian chandelier and marble coffee table. The walls are filled with a mix of colourful abstract paintings, which gives the interior a fresh and happy feeling, paired back with classic and simple linen curtains and a soft white sofa.

From the lounge, you enter into a light filled kitchen fitted the ebonised cabinets and a warm timber ceiling. Off the kitchen you will find a dining-room-come-library, a fuchsia pink dining table is surrounded by antique faux bamboo Chippendale dining chairs, and the walls are dripping with endless volumes of books covering all manner of subjects. 

At the rear of the house is a sun drenched living room designed to be perfect for everyday living, with Louis chairs covered in a vibrant chevron print and a French Lucite and glass coffee table add a classic touch to this modern space.

The bedrooms are all drenched with soft southern light, painted in tones of grey and navy they are places for relaxing and resting no matter what time of day. The master bedroom is a combination of sophisticated relaxed luxury with moss green velvet, grey mirror and linen lined walls. The navy bedroom is the ultimate cocoon with walls in the darkest of navy with accents of gold, red and warm timber.
