A refreshing architectural approach to the great Australian dream
38 Cochran Avenue, Camberwell
Inspired by the romance of mid-century architecture where family and friends were at the heart of every home and its outdoor spaces were a place to gather, this five-bedroom, four-bathroom plus study home delivers an contemporary perspective of the period’s ideals. Three grand open living spaces, seamlessly connected to easy-care poolside exteriors, are highlighted by a simply breathtaking 63m2 rooftop terrace back dropped by a dazzling city-skyline and 360-degree horizon views.
Echoing the forward-thinking ideas of Guildford Bell, the collaborated design by Christopher Krambias and Petridis Architects has reminisces the 60’s through a medley of blockwork and the quintessential breeze block, ensuring a purity of design to the monolithic façade. The extravagant proportions spanning 480m2 are an embellishment of the mid-century’s large proportions, flaunting an on-trend ensemble of marble and stone surfaces over polished concrete floors, enhanced by panoramic, double-glazed windows to connect the indoors with nature’s light and lush landscape.
Effortlessly uniting flexible function with stylish form, the home’s lavish interiors contain a large home office or fourth living space, a spectacular Miele hostess kitchen with butler’s pantry, and an enticing feature cellar, integrated with the outdoors where a sparkling swimming pool and lazy sun-drenched lounging complements alfresco barbecue dining facilities at both ground level and the rooftop terrace.
Complete with a mud room and a triple garage with workshop on an immense 798m2 (approx.), the home is a refreshing standout within the tree-lined Sunnyside Estate, a locale designed for lifestyle within a leisurely stroll to city-bound trams, Camberwell Junction’s renowned eateries and shopping, verdant parklands, and Melbourne’s elite private schools.
