The unique exterior doesn’t give away that the house is two stories and features striking deep green tiles, curved details, an archway, a lush garden and white birch trees.

Inside, an elegant herringbone wood floor migrates from the entrance hall into the family room, which is bathed in natural light through walls of windows that line the entire north side of the house.

The uber luxurious common area was designed as the perfect place for the resident family of five to spend time together, with an open floor plan that blends with the lush, wraparound outdoor space and garden.

Gray marble exudes opulence in the kitchen, covering the countertops and walls, and a dining area is almost entirely surrounded by windows to keep warm in the cooler months

The lounge off the kitchen has bespoke sleek gray cabinetry and a cozy fireplace set into the white painted brick wall.

Outside, the Fitroy houses look stately as a two-story brick facade with an arched detail towers over the blooming garden full of lush and green plants.

Climbing grape vines creep up the walls and there are a number of alfresco dining and seating areas, as well as a sparkling pool.

Each of the house’s five bedrooms is a deluxe class, one of which has its own private courtyard, and the bathroom is adorned with gray natural stone and is lit by a skylight over the shower.

According to Auhaus Architecture, the owners were specific with the type of home they wanted, and incorporating all of the desired “functional” features without encroaching on the exterior and detracting from the outdoor space was a “challenge.”

According to Auhaus Architecture, the owners were specific with the type of home they wanted on the duplex and incorporating all of the desired “functional” features without encroaching on the exterior and detracting from the outdoor space was a “challenge”.

“The home allows the busy family of five to spend time together indoors or outdoors, while providing space to retreat, work or play in separate parts of the garden or in private indoor spaces,” read the comments.

‘From the street, the house is proportionate to its adjacent neighbors, the upper level being hidden behind the high, single-story street facade.’
