Poised to soak up an appreciable elevated position and set on a spacious 4000m2 (one acre approx.) block, this double-storey home is encircled by beautiful gardens designed by Adolf Soster, gardener of the famed operatic soprano, Dame Nellie Melba.
Set back from the road (approx. 40m), the driveway weaves through the beautiful property where you're welcomed by an extraordinary residence that perfectly captures a balanced aesthetic of country charm and refined sophistication. Magnificent bay windows flank a welcoming verandah, projecting a bold image without being ostentatious.
The interior continues to embody the home's unique sense of style. The spacious lounge soaks up the attractive and completely private surrounds through the adoption of large glazings while the seamless transition from the lounge to the family zone feels uninterrupted. Rest by the gas log fire after a long day's work, then partake in a meal together in the adjoining dining domain.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a Savoir Faire 900mm dual-fuel cooker, in addition to a rangehood. Other features include; dishwasher, ample cupboard and bench space, breakfast bar, tiled splashback and porcelain floor tiles – also echoed throughout all wet areas.
French doors lead out to a verandah where pleasant views of the garden can be enjoyed. Outdoor entertaining has been well provided for with a paved area at the rear of the home, as well as a private pavilion at the side. The feeling of seclusion is complete, offering the perfect escape for those desiring a change of scenery without having to move away.
The upper level houses a master retreat boasting a triple built-in robe, bay windows (one with seating), study nook, plantation shutters and full ensuite comprising a dual-head rain shower, stylish vanity paired up with a separate make-up vanity and toilet. On the lower level, a second master bedroom is fitted with double and triple built-in robes.
