Surry Hills ‘Small House’: Former World House of the Year-winning home is back on the market

By Taylor and Partners Reception

The Small House in Surry Hills, designed by architect Domenic Alvaro, has returned to the market with $2.6 million hopes. The five-level home, with 200 sqm floor space, won the World Architecture Festival’s World House of the Year in 2011.

A year earlier in 2010, Alvarro bought a couple of car spaces in inner Sydney suburb.The spot, measuring just 7m by 6m, drew the attention of the world’s top architects, after Alvaro completely transformed the space, to take out the top prize. The Belmore Lane abode was well-documented on Grand Designs Australia, and was first sold for $1.88 million in 2014 by Alvaro to Jason Madz, who sought $2500-a-week tenants.

Constructed from precast concrete panels, it has city skyline views.The home also boasts Italian marble bench tops in the kitchen and European appliances. One of its bathrooms finds space for a stand-alone bathtub. Often referred to as a ‘vertical apartment’, each room is allocated its own level, allowing every space to be bathed in natural light.

It has been listed by Gavin Rubinstein and James Peach at Ray White. “It would make a most remarkable pied de terre for executives, as well as a particularly smart investment, with current rentals rates in the $2,100 per week range.” Mr Peach said. The home goes under the hammer 12pm November 30, with a price guide of $2.6m.
