Peter Maddison Home
Peter and his family own a home in Melbourne where they have been living for more than two decades. The family also has a holiday house on Phillip Island. Speaking about his Melbourne home and how it was renovated, Peter told Foxtel, “When my wife and I bought this home, we sought to keep the original architecture but also transform it into a building that suits today’s way of living. We kept the original spirit but totally renovated around the mid-century style that we love.”
He says that The kitchen is one of the rooms he loves the most, “The kitchen was originally never in this part of the house. We relocated it to the back of the house and there are full floor-to-ceiling doors that we can open up and get a wonderful view across the backyard which is full of native plants and birds. I love the black kitchen island – it’s the perfect place to sit and talk. You can read the paper here, drink coffee and there are no appliances on show. It’s really the social magnet of the house. All our food is prepared here and it’s ergonomic so you never bang your hip!”
“We also have our solid cast-iron ram in the kitchen. We bought it on one of our first ever dates when Andrea and I first met and it comes from the days when you could see a Golden Fleece ram on top of the bowser at every one of their service stations.”
