Bayview House is the latest house where BuildHer Collective demonstrates their passion for all things building! Combining striking Edwardian bones with contemporary architectural design features, this home is the perfect example of how to combine classic and contemporary in one of Melbourne’s most loved inner-city suburbs.

BuildHer Collective’s Rebeka Morgan and Justine Murphy carefully considered every single design choice throughout the home playing with colour and contrast and texture and tone beautifully. You need only get past the front door to see evidence of this. The attention to detail is second to none where they have ensured the home has pockets of beauty in every room with a fierce practicality to match – the five bedrooms speak to this loudly. 

Two living areas with two distinctive styles which play into the functionality of those spaces; the formal living with its slightly moody 1970s references, a perfect after dinner conversation space while the open plan living and dining area is an architectural stroke of genius with its high angular ceiling drenching the room with light and warmth fit for relaxing and family time. 

Bayview House features a kitchen that could adorn the cover of a magazine. The stone bench, appliances, cabinetry and clever butler’s panty sing in absolute harmony – the palette is simple and divine as is the case in most rooms of the home. 

Perfectly restored period features and contemporary additions like the second-floor retreat and study overlooking the open plan living and dining area (atop a void encased in fluted glass no less) ensure the home is recognised for its captivating aesthetic and flexible manner of living.

Bayview House is the result of an incredible shared vision, meticulous planning, a hard-working build team managed by an impeccably capable Project Manager in John Morgan and the determination to create the ultimate Australian dream.

And this beautiful home is now on the market - this gem could be yours! Contact Sam Rigopoulos, of Jellis Craig Inner North, or BuildHer Collective to arrange a time to view this extraordinary home as expressions of interest close 8 October 2019.
