Behind the doors of this quaint cottage lies a unique three-storey home that hides a secret underground ‘den’ in the basement.  

Hidden down a laneway in Sydney’s inner-west, the Glebe home appears unassuming from the outside and blends right into its surrounds. 

Once guests step through the doors, however, they are greeted with a luxurious living room with a stone fireplace, chandeliers and a corner staircase with a small ‘open’ sign leading them down to the lower level.

The underground hideaway dubbed a ‘James Bond-esque retreat’ is encased by walls of leather, wood and stone, a black glass-panelled ceiling and timber beams. 

It also has a projector screen, speakers in the ceiling, a chic built-in bar, a leather-adorned sitting nook, book shelves, a gas fireplace and a large adjoining home study.
