31 Brugh Street

This striking two-storey 4-bedroom home in Waverly was built on a challenging building platform, due to the steep site and small footprint of the property.
Black Thistle Construction played a pivotal role in planning the layout to help the client get the most from the site’s light and views, whilst maintaining good vehicle access.
The clever use of natural light and thoughtful positioning of the rooms over two levels lend a sense of space and privacy to the 198 square metres of floor space. Large stacker doors open onto the elevated deck, creating a usable outdoor space off the main living area.
