No. 5 Middle Street is an original Dutch house built in 1789. It was renovated in 2012 and remains true to its heritage, retaining its original facade, high timber ceilings and towering arches.
This blends seamlessly with the contemporary side wing, with its stunning rammed-earth walls. The private garden and the living wall provide a lush green contrast
Middle Street is centrally located towards the north side of the Fort, just around the corner from Fortaleza Restaurant.
The house has four bedrooms; all on the first floor in addition to expansive living areas on the ground floor.
Every room has its own individual design and art, with an eclectic blend of Western and Oriental touches. Stunning hand-built furniture is mixed with oriental rugs, handmade tiles and polished concrete floors.
No. 5 has four spacious bedrooms, all on the first floor and opening onto the polished timber balcony. This wraps around the rear of the house and overlooks the walled garden and lawn.
The architecture in the bedrooms blends extensive use of local hard woods with the contemporary rammed earth construction of the new wing. Combined with fine finishes, fresh flowers, high timber ceilings and a simple design ethos, these are beautiful rooms.
