The House With The Pink Front Door…...can you keep a secret?

Tucked away behind an unassuming facade is the house with the pink front door. Beyond the high front wall and leafy canopy awaits a true escape from the hustle and bustle of lively Gordon Street. The sound of a gently bubbling water feature and a fragrant little herb garden greet you in the private front courtyard, while a pop of pink is a welcoming nod to the homes iconic colour palette and Scandinavian inspired furnishings.

The element of surprise is alive and well upon entering the house with the pink front door. The classic period charm of this Victorian terrace is harmoniously balanced by a creative interior, while spacious proportions and multiple entertaining areas blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living. With a large garden oasis at the rear of the home, it really is a hidden gem in the heart of the vibrant inner west!

Home is where the heart is, and where American folk art influences meets Danish Hygge. Lush hanging plants and macramé borrow from bohemian style together with natural wood, linen and wool reminiscent of the Nordic spirit. A true blending of ergonomic and eclectic pieces gathered from here and there, the home also echoes the values of eco-responsibility, through vintage, recycling and DIY creations. "We do our best to reuse and reinvent materials thoughtfully and creatively, hopefully reducing our footprint a little along the way", explains Gemma, co-host of The house with with pink front door.

Reclaimed timber, exposed brick and shades of art deco make the kitchen another engaging space that will both inspire and delight the home cook! The well equipped kitchen provides all the essentials including a coffee machine, rice cooker, kettle and toaster. A dedicated Asko dishwasher waits patiently in the shadow of an old world fireclay scullery tub, while the Miele oven gives you the quiet confidence to get crackling on the most perfect pork roast to hit your holiday table yet!

Stocked with everyday basics and pantry staples, the kitchen provides an open atmosphere overlooking a large sheltered deck and breakfast bar window framed by a junglalow of ferns, succulents and trailing green Donkey’s tail. Follow the glow of the whimsical lanterns through to the laundry nook where the LG washer and dryer await.

From the hanging leafy splendour to the rustic farmhouse table, the entertaining deck provides a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living. Creature comforts including a natural gas heater and a 50inch Full HDTV make this space the perfect place to unwind and relax all year round with family and friends.

A spacious and private garden sanctuary featuring a functioning chicken coop with three laying chickens is an unexpected highlight of this well appointed terrace home. Designed for low maintenance inner city living, the eco lawn is soft under foot (no bindis) creating a fun, fresh and safe environment for the whole family to enjoy.

Together with having sustainable and eco-friendly sensibilities, hosts Gemma and Ollie are both mindful foodies and besotted 'chicken people’. “We try to avoid waste, and use the root-to-stem approach at home whenever we can.” Ollie says. Magda, Goldie and Stevie may be heard from their cheerful chicken run in the rear of the garden. These happy hens love a little company and especially enjoy all the delicious seasonal scraps set aside by visiting guests. Terrific with young families, the chickens make a lovely addition to your stay often treating visitors to cackling conversation and a fresh hen egg or two.

Upstairs the bedrooms are warm and inviting with the large master bedroom featuring a queen sized bed and Koala mattress. Opening onto a traditional iron lace balcony, the master is a relaxing haven together with reverse cycle air conditioning and heating for added comfort. Blush accents and banana leaf bliss may just summon dreams of Miami in the queen ensemble room positioned privately at the end of the landing, while guest quarters in the twin bedroom are given a little extra luxe with an array of plush cushions teamed textured linens, just perfect for the 'big’ kids travelling together or young siblings sharing a space. Pillows a plenty, each of the three bedrooms enjoys professionally laundered 500 thread count Sheridan linen and fluffy towels. (Nuna Sena Portacot available upon request.)

The bathroom offers a private and snug retreat on the second story of this home. The muted tones of the Namadji grey ceiling evoke a restful and soothing soak with the creature comfort of underfloor heating, endless hot water and Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries to uplift and revive the spirt. (Hair straightener and hairdryer available for guests to use on request.)

A magic little corner under the staircase is home to children’s books and toys destined to amuse and delight the tiny tots traveling in tow. An heirloom dolls house will give those mini-me interior decorators some curated creativity, and the big kids with a fondness for ironic nostalgia will enjoy listening to vintage LP’s while playing one of the many old school boardgames to discover in the mid century sideboard. Nintendo's retro NES Classic video game console is in there too, just quietly!!!

Beyond the pink front door there is lots to discover on foot and our Little Nation’s push trike with parent handle will help you get your hustle on before Sweet Belem sell out of their famous Portuguese tarts!

The Stokke Tripp Trapp Highchair has your mini’s meal time covered and the picnic ware is handy for lunch on the lawn down at Petersham Park. During warmer weather, the Fanny Durack Aquatic Centre in the tranquil surrounds of Petersham Park is a great place to have a dip, enjoy a coffee and let the little ones burn off some energy in the sheltered playground. On Mondays, a community initiative called the Magic Yellow Bus visits the park to offer free activities for kids under five.

Amongst the famous Portuguese charcoal chicken shops in Petersham (Frangos) the local ‘chippy’ is actually a pretty fancy fish and chip shop indeed! Headed by two ex-Bennelong chefs (Jose Silva and Manny Paraiso) the sustainable and recently launched Fich at Petersham have a fresh and super fun menu - be sure to try the “stingray” schnitzel and Grifter on tap!

For a real after school treat, head over Daisy’s Milkbar for a retro hamburger and banana split! Step back in time again and visit the old Magestic theatre, now Palacio, one of the most iconic inner-city heritage landmarks. Palacio Petersham is steadily becoming a favourite destination for extended and local foodies. Keeping its art-deco history, it has been transformed into a vibrant and eclectic space 96 years after it was built.

The White Cockatoo hotel is a good-time gastro pub definitely worth a stop or why not be pleasantly persuaded into making something new and delicious when you visit Orlando at his Spanish-Portuguese Butchery. Together with possibly the best chicken sausages you will ever try, Orlando specialises in a range of Latin American and Mediterranean specialised cuts, salted fish and cured meats and you’ll also find hard to find imported like Uruguayan tea, matè, Brazilian cheesy bread and Argentinian style BBQs.

From fresh produce to artisan goods the inner west is cementing its reputation as Sydney’s leading hotspot for handmade and organic markets. Regulars at their local community farmers market, hosts Gemma and Ollie are passionate about buying seasonal produce sourced from local growers and farmers and whenever possible, and supporting Australian businesses. Be sure to check out Carriageworks Farmers Market open every Saturday from 8am till 1pm Glebe Markets every Saturday from 10am till 4pm and Marrickville Markets every Sunday 7.30am till 3pm
