Who lives here
Interior design consultant Mark Cavanagh and his partner, writer and historian Warren Fahey.

What we have done
“It comes as a surprise to many that this is a total reconstruction, completed over 20 years ago,” says Mark. “A lot of people assume that’s the original layout, which in some ways suggests that’s how it should always have been.”

Favorite room
“The enclosed terrace overlooking Elizabeth Bay House and Sydney Harbour. Simple tricks, like the deciduous vine of Boston ivy that trails up to the ceiling and a heated marble floor, mean we can enjoy an outdoor ambiance year-round.

The hood
“Living in Sydney’s ‘Pocket Manhattan’ means enjoying the best cafes, many restaurants, a myriad of specialty shops and the best basic necessities.”

“The living room gets a lot of use,” says Mark. “Warren and I are both avid readers. He takes one couch and I take the other. The great artwork is by Ildiko Kovacs.Credit:Jennifer Sou
