Even from the street, passersby can tell this is no ordinary townhouse conversion. The burly steel gate, the glimpse of palm trees over the charcoal fence, and the sound of trickling water tell the story of renovators willing to disregard resale value and convention in favour of a home carefully tailored to their wants, whims and needs.
The owners of this home teamed up with a like-minded designer, enthusiastic builder and a team of craftspeople to design a one-of-a-kind house in a city-fringe suburb.
