Full description:

A superbly renovated heritage property in a desirable situation in the heart of Penang - an island vibrant with culture and character, at an exclusive address manifesting a nostalgic fashion of life, lain dormant for decades.

The entrance to the corner pre-war shophouse is beautifully textured with antique light-blue mosaic tiles - a perfect complement to wooden double doors adorned with intricate carvings hand-painted in gold, creating a picture perfect entrance with green foliage.

Through a set of red, heavy double doors to an artful assemblage of original components of the house and antique furniture, crafted into a partition that forms a reception area, before entering the spectacularly transformed main interior with modern architecture, filled with antique elements create a fascinating resort-like living space within the walls.

Grey steel trusses and columns minimally frame the interior structures invoking De Stijl and Bauhaus architecture. A cascading 'sun-wall' and 'sunroof' for natural lighting punctuates the two styles' philosophy of functionality before form, making full use of the first airwell. No compromise on the form, however. The combination of dark and redwood floor, window and staircase panels accentuate the grey through contrasting colours and irregularity, while white walls deliver space.

he Koi Pond is an attractive water feature, adding a sense of soothing dynamism to this home. Flanked by a plank walkway, the traditionally outdoor combination appears gorgeously juxtaposed indoors.

Two-and-a-half storeys make for a very high ceiling, looking up from the ground floor to the ceiling of the air well.

A gently sloping timber staircase leads to the first floor with three bedrooms - a master bedroom with an open bathroom, a study and 2 other bedrooms. The master bedroom overlooks an open air well at the back of the house, which serves also as a garden.

The attic level has two charming bedrooms (front and back of house) with adequate but slanting ceiling space. The attic levels are accessible by a beautifully designed footstep-staircase and a spiral staircase.

The front bedroom in the attic features an en-suite bathroom, which unconventionally leads out to a rooftop garden which boasts a rooftop view of the UNESCO heritage enclave of Penang.

With an impressive RM1.5 Million spent on restoration and a stylistic makeover, this house is a rare gem that has found a charming new lustre.
