Heritage fascade with modern architectural interior alongside the northern Adelaide Parklands
Singular and sublime, CROOKED CHIMNEY will amaze you with the ingenious incorporation of its heritage-villa elements and the sleek contemporary forms of its more modern additions. Step through the front gate from the Parklands and you are greeted with the demure Victorian styling of the original structure which are followed through the entrance hall, the front library and the downstairs bedrooms. At the far end of the central hall the house opens up revealing a very contemporary affair with classic touches such as the marble mantelpiece over the gas fire.
Floor to ceiling windows along the north face ensure the lightness of the common space and kitchen. Swing open the folding door and the rear porch's built-in barbecue follows as a natural extension of the kitchen,with the cozy garden and lap pool contributing to make this an ideal entertaining space.
Climb the stairs to the master bedroom, and the home's central namesake. Maintained in its original form as required by local heritage, the central chimney has an odd bend that speaks to the uniqueness of the villa. Views from the master bedroom en suit look over the front roof to the Parklands, encapsulating the 'sense of place' architectural philosophy behind the designers, Troppo Architecture.
