The garden setting is also listed, containing extraordinary remnant redgum forest, a massive kauri pine, majestic figs and protected native grasses. In addition to the endemic species, the garden contains an eclectic range of exotics, including what is potentially the largest aloe tree outside of Madagascar.

The combination of ecological protection zone, multiple heritage listings and established trees makes this 1000sqm site difficult to develop. Through keen and indefatigable coordination with our extensive consultant team, we were able to establish two parcels of developable land to create a luxury residential offering.

The original house is split into two generous and elegant apartments. Architectural and interior works are carefully calibrated to retain the rich and detailed interior architecture of the PTW building.

A new apartment building addresses the street, and 5 new townhouses create an internal courtyard with the old house. All dwellings are 3-4 bedroom, with high quality architectural finishes referencing the original house.
