Be wowed by this jaw-dropping transformation

A property in the heart of the inner west that sold last year for $1.8 million is unrecognisable after returning to market this week.

The 379sqm Lilyfield property with dual access has been transformed into an architectural masterpiece with panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows and luxury contemporary finishes.

It is a huge difference from the circa 1895 single-storey three-bedroom house with large backyard that previously graced 273 Lilyfield Rd.

According to Inner West Council development records, local builder Robert Kharzoo is behind the transformation.

The Lilyfield Rd house is on the doorstep of the popular Bay Run and is scheduled to go under the hammer on August 27 in a virtual auction.

It has a $3.5 million guide and is being marketed by Pilcher Residential director Simon Pilcher and agent Trent Conlan.

CoreLogic reveals a sale around $3.5 million would see the house claim the second highest price paid for a property in Lilyfield this year, trailing behind reno queen Cherie Barber paying a reported $6 million for the converted warehouse of comedian Merrick Watts.

Almost everything except for part of the front facade was completely gutted during the renovation and rebuild of 273 Lilyfield Rd.

The finished product features contemporary stylings on the inside and outside including concrete, wood and lots of white. It is also a unique design for Lilyfield, with most of the houses in the suburb generally full of heritage charm.

The two-storey home has an abundance of space including a mix of formal and informal living areas. The kitchen has all the latest appliances, as well as gas cooking, a breakfast bar and a hidden butler’s pantry.

Beside this is the family room, that not only possesses soaring ceilings, but also windows that go from the first floor right up to the second storey.

The main bedroom is the size of a small apartment, with features including a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite bathroom and a private balcony.

Outside is a swimming pool, a small backyard and a double garage. The garage also has a rooftop garden with some stunning views of the house and of the surrounding district.

Strong interest from aspirational buyers in the inner west, as well as those coming from the north shore and eastern suburbs are expected to take a shine to the Lilyfield home.
