41 Alexandra St, Hunters Hill, is a fusion of formal and relaxed elegance.

The facade of 41 Alexandra St, Hunters Hill, presents a picture of a classic two-storey character house, completed by iron-lacework veranda and a stone water fountain in a perfectly manicured garden.

From the rear of the property, a strikingly different view is revealed of an inspired refurbishment and extension.

Gone is the more restrictive and dense layout of a formal period house, replaced by a functional and relaxed yet elegant floor plan.

The owners commissioned award-winning architect Nikki South of Southmarc Architects to deliver a design that would widen the footprint of the house without detracting from its street appeal — in keeping with nearby heritage houses.

For Nicholas McEvoy from Bresic Whitney Estate Agents — Hunters Hill the words “light” and “flow” sum up the property.

“You step inside and immediately you’re struck by the light flowing in through floor-to- ceiling windows and cross ventilation from louvred windows,” Mr McEvoy said.

What is also brilliant about this clever reinvention of a character house is the high calibre of every finish that has been thoughtfully arranged to show off its natural beauty for maximum effect.

Dark timber flooring, a nod to tradition in the front living room, is juxtaposed against polished concrete flooring that signals a move to open-plan family, dining and kitchen

In the kitchen, a 40mm gunpowder-grey Caesarstone floating bench complements custom white laminate cabinetry.

In the living room, the soft sheen of an organic pendant light is reflected in the brushed gold tones of a dividing wall that houses a sleek gas fireplace.

There is never a dull moment where the beauty is in the detail.
