The success of d’Estaville is an architectural response which suits contemporary living yet respects the significance of this Heritage Victoria listed dwelling. 

Contemporary design, including new furniture and lighting softens the grand scale of the original home and creates spaces which are comfortable and intimate.

The repurposing of elements such as a WW2 air raid shelter into a cellar add to the amenity of the house, whilst retaining its rich and layered history. 

Steel details featured throughout the home and provide a fine edged counterpoint to the heavy mass of the bluestone heritage architecture.
