The striking True North House at 33 Eastwood St, Kensington is for sale.

Inspecting this curvaceous corrugated iron-clad house is “strictly by appointment only” for good reason.

Nelson Alexander Flemington’s Jayson Watts said the stickybeak factor would have been through the roof had he not imposed this rule, such was True North House’s renown in Kensington.

“Everyone would have wanted to come through and check it out,” he said.

“It’s a very unique property.”

The house is one of a kind in Kensington.

Polished concrete floors, expanses of timber and curved walls characterise the interior.

The architectural gem at 33 Eastwood St is being sold privately, with a $2.195 million asking price.

Mr Watts said the property was architect and owner Tim Hill’s second Kensington project, following The Kensington Lighthouse at 109 Rankins Rd, which CoreLogic records show sold for $1,234,500 in 2016.

Mr Hill, of Tandem Studio, built the three-bedroom True North House on an irregularly-shaped triangular block in 2017, in place of a decaying 1950s cottage.

The house has three bedrooms, in addition to a fourth inside a stables conversion on the block.

The house is being sold by architect-owner Tim Hill.

Grand Designs Australia documented the build, and the house went on to be short-listed for several accolades, notably receiving a commendation in the 2017 Victorian Architecture Awards.

Curves, natural finishes, polished concrete flooring, expanses of wood and built-in furniture characterise the warm interior.

The ground floor features a sunken lounge, an atrium-style open living space, a dining area, and kitchen with Miele appliances and concrete benchtops.

The bedrooms and bathrooms can be found upstairs.

The house was designed to make the most of its irregular triangle-shaped block.

The solar-passive house has a 7.3-star energy rating, while the title also features an 1880s stables Mr Hill converted into a one-bedroom townhouse.

“Having the stables there obviously appeals to a broader marketplace — (it could suit) people with children who stay at home into their 20s, with elderly family members, or it’s a potential income stream,” Mr Watts said.
