Big-name designers collaborate on this Annandale stunner

  • February 15, 2024

The owners of this freestanding turn-of-the-century home at 249 Annandale Street, Annandale pulled off an impressive design feat when they called on renowned architect Carla Middleton of CMA and the team at Garden Life to transform the classic residence into something dramatic and unique. Featured in Better Homes magazine in 2022, the result was remarkable, with a bold contemporary addition seamlessly melding with beautifully conserved Federation elements and a breathtaking garden and alfresco entertaining area complete with a pool.

The five-bedroom, two-storey family home is now on the market through Ben Southwell and Angeline Puncheon, going to auction onsite on Thursday 29th February at 6.00pm.

Of the reimagining, Carla comments, “CMA’s Annandale House is an architectural residence that was thoughtfully designed and carefully executed to be a home that will change your daily life.”

Ben adds, “Like all of Carla’s work, this property showcases her architectural talents for creating elegant modern spaces with beautiful materials and plenty of natural light. It’s perfect for large families, especially those who love to entertain. You’ve got the open-plan living and dining space that’s embraced by glass and flows seamlessly to the patio, where you can keep a close eye on the kids in the heated mineral pool, fire up the barbeque or enjoy home-make woodfired pizza in the pizza oven. Step up to the level lawn and you’ve got plenty of space for the kids to kick the ball around, under the shade of a towering old tree and tropical frangipanis. Parents can retreat to the sanctuary of the master suite while a second lounge area creates a perfect TV escape.”

“The finishes are all top of the range and work together to create a really relaxed, contemporary feel, from the engineered oak and polished concrete floors to the sleek Corian kitchen with Miele appointments. Many of the lovely original details have also been preserved for character, like the soaring ceilings and classic fireplaces. A rare luxury is the dual street access, with double garaging at the rear.”

“And, of course, the neighbourhood is wonderful and one of the most sought-after in the Inner West … quiet yet vibrant and wonderfully convenient. There’s a welcoming village vibe, great eateries, beautiful parks, easy CBD transport and the sparkling Rozelle Bay waterfront to enjoy. As a family address, you won’t find better.”
