When Australian interior design darling David Flack creates something new, we all sit up and take notice. And while this talented designer is best known for his work at Flack’s studio (he designed Sydney’s Ace Hotel and Australian pop star Troy’s Sivan home), today’s The project is David’s own Melbourne home, which he shares with husband Jason Olive.
This unique Richmond property was built in 1900 and features two bedrooms and additional home office space. This home boasts the incredible attention to detail that has earned Flack Studio international acclaim. Incredibly, the practice has been featured in Architectural Digest’s AD100 for three consecutive years.
Cathedral ceilings and clerestory windows make the relatively small residence feel light and bright, and well-kept gardens create a heavenly effect in a fairly urban location.
There are custom fittings designed by David and a curved marble shower and bath area. Rosso Levanto marble makes an even more statement under the vanity mirror in the bathroom.
“This property combines playful materials to give each space in the home a unique feel. It’s as if this property has its own personality. A very happy homeowner. “I have a feeling it’s going to happen,” says Jack Nichol, sales director and auctioneer at Marshall White, which is putting the property on the market today (February 7).
The kitchen is also a luxurious space, with chic touches such as Calacatta Viola marble and a rare custom veined marble kitchen sink. “It’s not often you come across a home where the vibrancy of color and design blends with the urban environment,” says Jack, acknowledging how special this property is.
“During the renovation, we wanted to maintain the bones of this modest Victorian worker’s cottage, while customizing the façade to inject warmth and better reflect our personality.” says David of the home, which is expected to sell for up to $1.4 million.
“This home is something we really look forward to coming back to every night, serving as a beautiful oasis in a busy city and a great place to visit family and friends.”
