In an urban landscape that's constantly changing to reflect modern times, here stands a timeless beauty of enormous proportions intentionally built to capture the essence of a bygone era with the benefits contemporary living provides. Boasting a prestigious Oakland Drive address within one of Manningham's most exclusive acre precincts, "Oaklands" delivers a coveted family lifestyle on the Warrandyte-Templestowe border.
Nestled amongst lovingly maintained landscaped gardens, this refined Victorian-inspired five-bedroom home on a whisper-quiet 4,163sqm (approx.) lifestyle block flaunts timeless quality across its intelligently zoned floorplan. Classically designed cornices, ornately decorated 2.7m high ceilings, leadlight features and corbelled archways evoke the character of a bygone era, while three living areas, gymnasium room/fourth living area, home office and three deluxe bathrooms promote a practical and functional approach to everyday family life.
The enormous proportions of the formal dining room allows the space to also function as a dual lounge/dining space, while that essence of space extends to the large cook's kitchen (with Butler's pantry) and radiant open-plan living domain that unites the household in the heart of the home.
The integration between the sizeable rumpus (with wet bar, open fireplace and bathroom access) and paved poolside entertaining area makes large-scale gatherings possible any time of year, while a fully-tiled gas-heated swimming pool with spa, new 'Spa Electrics' low voltage LED remote colour controlled lighting and a 'Bioniser' ionisation sanitiser offers a superior swimming experience.
A deluxe master bedroom with a spa ensuite enjoys comfort and privacy, as do the three additional robed bedrooms, which are secluded on a private wing with a luxurious spa family bathroom.
Enjoying many upgrades over the years that includes a larger gas main, sewer connection and three-phase power, this peerless home also features a freshly painted interior, two remote double garages (one with epoxy resin flooring), multiple storage areas, 8kW of solar power generation on two separate strings, wrought iron steel gates, 60,000-litre water tank storage (approx.), refinished roof and architecturally prepared drawings for a potential future extension.
Minutes to parks, The Pines Shopping Centre, trendy eateries, transport, the Eastern Freeway and excellent public and private schools, enjoy the present with shades of the past.
