Three floors, quirky decor and an outdoor ‘secret fantasy’ toilet: in the VERY unique Victorian-era Troye Sivan home in Melbourne … after the singer moved permanently to Australia amid the Covid pandemic
He lived in the US for ‘five or six years’ before returning to Australia last March amid the ongoing Covid pandemic.
And on Friday, Australian musician Troye Sivan, 25, gave fans a tour of his sensational Victorian home for Architectural summary, after I bought the property last year.
The My My My! singer describes his home as ‘true heaven’ and the property features three floors, a huge courtyard and eclectic and quirky decorations throughout.
East West home is best! On Friday, Australian musician Troye Sivan, 25, gave fans a tour of his sensational Victoria-era home for Architectural Digest, having refurbished the property last year.
The house used to be a handball court in 1874, which was then converted into a brick factory before becoming a residence.
Although it has been extensively renovated by Troye, it still retains much of the essence of its Victorian origins.
During his tour, Troye first took viewers into his loft-style living room, with beautiful high ceilings and exposed beams and stairs.
Plant life is widespread through the open plan living space – including an apple tree in the center – while his choice of lamps provides ‘a soup of light’ that ‘gently fills the room’.

The kitchen exudes luxury with green stone worktops, built-in appliances, black steel cupboards and ‘heaps and heaps of wood’.
The two bedrooms – one of which is for his sister Sage – are equally impressive, both overlook a huge park and feature ‘cork ceilings’ to make them feel like a ‘really cozy cave’.
Troye described his bathroom as his ‘sanctuary’. The room has an impressive bathtub and beautiful marble floors.

Meanwhile, the courtyard is dotted with various native Australian plants and water features.
‘This is why I fell in love with the house,’ said Troye, before telling viewers about one of the house’s most exciting features: a ‘secret outdoor fantasy toilet.’
‘Sometimes I make it like a rave here. It’s extra and I love it, ”he said of the bathroom, hidden at the end of the courtyard.
The room in question – which was previously a wine cellar – has arched walls ‘painted with ox-blood paint’ to look ‘like a cave’, dark, mysterious lighting and marble floors.
“I am so incredibly happy here and I feel so at home,” he concluded.
