Wentworth Street House

For many years the clients lived in a house created by the early 20thcentury Sydney architect, Professor Leslie Wilkinson. The clients wanted to redesign the house, extending it onto the block of land next door and to have a stone room using architectural detailing as decoration. A new street entrance was created in stone on the eastern side of the property with sweeping stone stairs and wrought iron gates set into a shaped stone wall A new kitchen and family room was designed with more bedroom accommodation upstairs and a tennis court with garaging for three cars underneath. An internal staircase was created in sandstone with wrought iron in a classic elegant motif and a new outside pergola and arches designed to provide shade for outdoor dining. Many areas of the house were changed, but all the time the tradition of the original Wilkinson architecture was preserved.
