St Kilda East
7 King Street
Jewel of St Kilda East
Light and space come together in perfect harmony at this single-fronted three-bedroom, two bathroom, Victorian brick home that is destined to be a jewel in St Kilda Easts real estate crown. It is hard to imagine a more breathtaking transformation. Nor greater attention to detail. This sophisticated home has been created by interior designer Kimberley - Jade Bawden of Kim INC as a modern masterpiece in a cul de sac off Inkerman Street and is both luxurious and contemporary, while respecting its heritage. High ceilings, ceiling roses and skirting boards are married with contemporary elements: European oak floorboards, a marble open-plan kitchen/family hub and bi-fold New York-style steel-framed doors that open the living area to the north-facing courtyard with a built-in barbeque and white marble bench seating. A palette of cool and warm tones unites the interiors and allows the house can be changed and adapted to suit individual style. Flawless finishes and fittings and textured materials provide a luxurious and restful home. White luminous marble mosaics bordered by European oak boards create a dramatic entry that leads to two generous bedrooms with full-height 2-pac wardrobes. In the second bedroom, a hidden door pivots to reveal a spacious limestone en suite with large shower, antique claw foot bath, Carrara marble twin vanity and the latest black tap ware. Polished New York marble with warm aubergine highlights anchors the glorious kitchen. Full height 2 pac-cabinets, extensive storage, soft-closing drawers, a bar, integrated fridge and dishwasher, two Italian Kleemaid ovens, concealed microwave, five-burner gas cooktop and a butlers pantry meet every need. Upstairs, the tranquil parents retreat includes a full-width home office or second sitting room with a library. Two workstations have views over the surrounding rooftops and trees. The luxurious master bedroom with velvet wall panelling fits a king-sized bed and leads to a fitted walk-in wardrobe. In the limestone en suite, French gold tap ware, brass detailing, mirrors and a sky shower reinforce the glamour. The long list of features includes five split system units providing linear slot diffusion air-conditioning/heating; 100 per cent wool carpets; Astra Walker black tap ware; floor-to-ceiling limestone bathrooms; polished plaster feature wall; gas open-fireplace; herringbone black japanned European oak floorboards; Kleenmaid appliances; butlers pantry and laundry; New York-style steel-framed doors; sheer curtains; window seat; white plantation shutters and smoked grey mirrors; Bocci ceiling pendants.
