A Beautifully Renovated Balmain Terrace Hits The Market!

For Sophie Trippe-Smith Balmain, Sydney, was constantly the dream. ‘I applied to wander up this road when I was younger,’ she describes. ‘I often wanted to are living on it one day.’ 

So, when this Balmain terrace arrived on the market place in 2012, she and husband entrepreneur Adam Trippe-Smith, knew they had to leap at it. ‘I quickly fell in appreciate,’ claims Sophie. ‘I adore terraces, and this one just experienced this kind of fantastic vitality with stunning large ceilings. I was blown away by the city views from the roof terrace.’

It’s these sights that Sophie and Adam will miss the most, having produced the choice to promote their beloved 1880s Victorian terrace home. From the rooftop terrace, Anzac bridge and the complete Sydney metropolis skyline can be considered in an amazing panorama. ‘Watching the solar go down and the light-weight hit the metropolis buildings is our favorite time of the day,’ she states. 

Throughout their 10 many years in the charming terrace, Sophie and Adam have set their have stamp on the area, which include working with landscape designer Adam Robinson to include a double garage (‘a real luxury in Balmain’) and a lush north-going through garden. 

‘We preferred one thing that evoked a relaxed, serene natural environment where by we could rest with loved ones, but also entertain visitors,’ states Sophie of their city backyard oasis. ‘It’s been a genuine sanctuary for all of us.’ 

They also worked with Kate Bell Design and style to boost all of the rooms inside of the house, making sure each individual had its individual ‘unique perception of space’. The result is a shiny, up to date house that pays homage to its primary functions. 

While Sophie and Adam have set their residence of 10 yrs on the market place, they won’t be transferring far ‘We’ll hardly ever depart this spot!’, suggests Sophie. ‘Balmain is a neighborhood like nowhere else… we appreciate remaining surrounded by drinking water in all places on this special peninsula.’
