A Luxuriously Modern Home For Sale In Sydney's Forest Lodge

The inspiration behind the design of this new Sydney home that’s just hit the market was all about balance.

Architectural studio Arkhaus and award winning builders Micrah Projects leaned into a ‘classic modern’ approach, integrating contemporary elements with traditional materials to find the right blend of function and form.

Located in the inner-city suburb of Forest Lodge, the abode isn’t short on luxury either, featuring everything from smart-home features to solar and an electric car charger, alongside a dreamy outdoor entertaining area!

Despite being a new build, it was important that this Forest Lodge house felt like a home.Arkhaus director and founder Fernando Banales says ensuring the architecture offered both ‘liveability’ and ‘connection’ was a key focus when designing the new four-bedroom residence at 4 Coneill Place.

Built by Micrah Projects, the home is positioned in a family-friendly cul-de-sac on the border of Annandale Village and Glebe, with a sweeping, two-level floorplan – that stands in contrast to some of the small, narrow blocks of the surrounding areas.

‘Our vision was to create a dwelling that responds to the site and enhances the northern aspect of the lot,’ Fernando says.

A second-floor balcony on the striking facade makes the most of the street’s tree-lined canopy, while cleverly placed voids, skylights and expanses of glass windows frame calm, leafy outlooks in every room.

Inside, the design takes on a ‘classic modern approach’. Traditional materials like marble benchtops and timber joinery are combined with the convenience of smart-home features like automated lighting and blinds, in addition to sustainable elements like solar panels and an electric vehicle fast-charger.

The spacious living room offers both indoor and outdoor living, as sliding doors open to a lush backyard where you’ll find a swimming pool and undercover dining area.

Plus, with an enormous dressing room (that’s reminiscent of a designer store or ritzy hotel) linked to the main bedroom upstairs, the home has lifestyle and luxury allure in spades!

4 Coneill Place, Forest Lodge is listed with Ben Southwell and Matthew Hayson at Cobden Hayson and will go to auction on Thursday April 6 at 6:00pm.
