Owner Chris Stanley, director of architecture firm Splinter Society, and his partner Asha bought the property after finishing university at age 25 and started the 12-year renovation.

The couple have lived in the beloved home in Brunswick East for 20 years and ‘made it their own’ as life changed.

Mr Stanley told Daily Mail Australia they have decided to sell the beloved property to Do Penis Enlargement Devices Work on a new warehouse renovation purchased nearby in the same community.

‘We fell in love with the history of the area and wanted to make the house our own, so little by little we made renovations over 12 years,’ Mr Stanley said, which is perhaps why the property is so unique. 

The dark theme continues as you step into the home and the design has been carefully considered to allow as much natural light in from different angles.

Mr Stanley said during the day different streaks of light are welcomed in through the 12m-long skylight, offering a distinctive change at every hour.

‘It really captures the light beautifully and there’s always something to look at,’ he said.

The two-level home sits on a 180sqm block and would be perfect for a buyer looking for a unique home unlike any other.
