50 Ormond Street,
Temptation Made TangibleNot only is this an entirely contemporary residence behind a classical c1889 image, it’s an utterly unique, individually designed home of bespoke brilliance and unparalleled allure. Pleysier Perkins’ signature architectural finesse is instantly perceived in the integration of the original design with state-of-the-art concepts and a commitment to quality that goes far above and beyond the norm.
Open flow living displays the materials to their fullest extent, mingling polished concrete and full-width glass with rich red bricks reclaimed from the home’s former life; all immersed in an environment of endless light. Gourmet kitchen profiles matte Caesarstone surfaces, Smeg/Bosch appliances and an island arrangement that interacts beautifully with triple-stacker glass doors to reveal alfresco deck and gardens where the opportunity to tailor to your tastes may prove irresistible. The lounge and breathtaking bedrooms emphasise the intermingling of past and present, offering a stunning terrace to the north and superb views to the south.
An enormous attic offers an abundance of storage. In addition to the benefits of passive heating, the list of features includes hydronic heating and bulk-head air-conditioned cooling, 5000l rainwater tank, original marble fireplaces and rear right-of-way that puts future possibilities into context.
