A high level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is showcased in this immaculately renovated, historic sandstone house on Wharf Road in Birchgrove by Matthew Sheargold. The old and the new merge seamlessly together. Natural light from a cathedral ceiling lined with sky windows floods the open-plan living areas.

A material palette of marble and dark timber, including bespoke timber joinery by builders C & D Exclusive Constructions, adds a sense of luxury and richness to the spaces. Marble finishes are a special feature in the home, with four marble fireplaces and a marble powder room. Nero​ marble is used in the library, which acts as a second living space next to the dining area. Statuarietto​ marble kitchen benchtops and splashback are carved from the same slab and marble shelving in the walk-in pantry provides a naturally cool surface on which to store food.

Tongue n Groove solid engineered European oak floorboards in the Penza colour, Eterno classic wire-brushed finish and Herringbone Parquetry format feature throughout the interior. Featuring an aged, dark enriched grain with warm mid to dark brown tones, Penza complements the interior spaces beautifully. A modern-day play on a traditional design, this unique oversized Herringbone Parquetry will bring any room to life.
