Behind a chic-yet-understated façade on a suburban street of Victorian-era houses, a magnificent family home awaits inside with a sophisticated design that is up for a top gong later this month. 

The stunning home is in the inner-city and highly sought-after Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy and has been shortlisted at the prestigious Houses Awards for 2022 under two categories and it’s no wonder why.

Designed by Melbourne firm Auhaus Architecture the Fitzroy House is a contemporary take on the original heritage home paying homage to its historical qualities while incorporating modern elements and style.

The unique exterior does not give away that the home is double-storey and features striking deep green tiles, curved details, an archway, a lush garden and white birch trees.

Inside, sleek timber herringbone flooring travels from the entryway hall into the family room illuminated with natural light through the window walls lining the whole north-facing side of the home.

The uber-luxe communal area was designed as the perfect space for the family of five that lives there to spend time together with an open-plan layout that blends into the leafy wrap-around outdoor space and garden.

Grey marble oozes opulence in the kitchen and covers the benchtops and walls and a meals area is almost completely encased by windows to keep warm in the cooler months

The lounge by the kitchen has custom-built smooth grey cabinets and a cosy fireplace in the white-painted brick feature wall. 

Outside, Fitroy houses looks stately as a double-story brick façade with an arched detail towers over the thriving garden filled with luscious and leafy plants. 

Crawling vines creep up the walls and there are a series of alfresco dining and seating areas as well as a sparkling pool. 

Each of the home’s five bedrooms are a lesson in luxury with one featuring its own private courtyard and the bathroom is adorned with natural grey stone and lit up by a skylight above the shower.

According to Auhaus Architecture, the owners were specific with the type of home they wanted and it was 'challenging' to fit all the desired 'functional' features in without intruding on the exterior and compromising outdoor space

According to Auhaus Architecture, the owners were specific with the type of home they wanted on the double block and it was ‘challenging’ to fit all the desired ‘functional’ features in without intruding on the exterior and compromising outdoor space.

‘The home allows the busy five family members to spend time together indoors or out, while providing the space to retreat, work or play, in separate parts of the garden or private internal spaces,’ the comments read. 

‘From the street, the house is in proportion with its adjoining neighbours, the upper level concealed behind the tall single level street façade.’
