A generous family home is rare, if almost impossible, to find in the inner city. But this three-level house in Cecil Street, Fitzroy, delivers exactly this. Spread over three levels and benefiting from Melbourne's skyline views, this four-bedroom house includes outdoor terraces and off-street car parking. Unlike most inner-city homes that suffer from overlooking and a lack of privacy, the Cecil Street house has thoughtfully crafted views. From soft filtered light to dramatic shafts of light, the vistas continually change throughout the day.
Constructed in white brick, concrete, steel and glass, this contemporary home appears to 'float' within the street's plane trees. The experience within is as ethereal, with open plan kitchen and living areas that 'blur' with the courtyard. And when the day comes to a close, what more pleasurable way to end it than to watch the sun set against the city skyline?
