Architect Conrad Johnston and his wife Katrina have sold their Balmain home.

The Stewart Place home was a 100 year old worker’s cottage before its 2009 makeover.

Set on a sloping 241sq m block, the Fox Johnston architects director bought the property for $860,000 in 2006 then added a modern open-plan extension.

The original cottage now contains three bedrooms overlooking gardens ­designed by Daniel Baffsky from 360 Degrees Landscape.

On the second level there is a bedroom with ensuite and an adjoining study.

The interiors have green walls and an internal atrium.

The home sold ahead of its weekend auction having been listed with a price guide of $2.4 million to $2.5 million through Cobden & Hayson agent Peter Gordon, with it selling at $2.5 million plus.
