Kris Turnbull prefers to work with local craftsman and has selected materials to create statement features, from the kitchen island worktop to the sandstone architraves and the trellis cut marble floorings. Previously home to three full sized bedrooms, the new master bedroom suite dominates nearly half of the first floor and is an oasis of space and calm. The sumptuous bedroom's notable design features a series of custom designed wardrobes finished with saddle stitched suede doors, a trellis-mirrored feature wall and backlit-upholstered fabric panels in neutral tones behind the Fendi croco leather headboard.

The master bedroom has been designed in a contemporary style with a sense of balance and proportion in mind influenced by the principles of feng shui; rough textures against smooth, light finishes contrasting with dark, more masculine elements softened by feminine accents, resulting in a design that offers a great sense of tranquility and wellbeing. Hand- woven wallpaper with goldthread weaving serves as the perfect foil for the glamorous detail of the striking crystal-cut tiebacks on the window treatments by Armani textiles delivering sparkling splendor.
This house contrasts the building's heritage with the contemporary including grand furnishings, luxurious finishes and detailed craftsmanship making this property a timeless mix of classical detail and modern sophistication.
