Beautifully Balanced Entertainer Offers Sensational Family Living

A timeless example of inspired Brighton living within walking distance of Bay Street shopping and Melbourne’s leading schools, this elegant 4 bedroom indoor/outdoor entertainer captivates with contemporary flow and delightful period detail throughout.

Serenely set beyond a private walled entrance, discover an idyllic family layout with a tempting trio of distinctive indoor living zones offering space to lounge, dine and entertain. A welcoming hallway branches off to an instantly inviting formal lounge, flowing through to a dedicated dining room boasting an open fireplace and a genuine sense of occasion under decorative ceilings. Perfectly placed, a ground-floor main bedroom is staged on this level, complete with a deluxe ensuite showcasing a sumptuous spa bath.

The home spectacularly opens up to reveal far-reaching, open-plan living and dining, and a sleek, Caesarstone-topped kitchen featuring the full complement of high-end Smeg appliances and a welcoming breakfast bar. Relaxed in nature, the home effortlessly flows outdoors through a set of bi-fold doors to reveal a private, northeast-facing deck, solar-heated swimming pool and poolside terrace. Presenting a whole range of possibilities, take the opportunity to entertain family and friends alfresco at any time of the day or year.

Take a set of stairs to the remaining 3 robed bedrooms, fully air conditioned with commanding treetop views of the neighbourhood. The family-sized bathroom features a twin vanity and a luxurious bath, while two of the bedrooms offer access to a sweeping balcony overlooking the pool.

Cleverly combining the classical with the contemporary, period features on display include exquisite leadlighting, Tasmanian oak flooring, a columned verandah, and decorative ceiling art and cornices. Comprehensive features include a large laundry with shelving, ground-floor powder room, lock-up, dual-doored garage plus additional driveway parking for boats and trailers, extensive heating and cooling, storage under stairs, plush carpets, ducted vacuum, and a secure alarm.

Moments from Brighton Primary School, North Brighton trains and a short walk to the foreshore and the white-picketed wonder of William Street Reserve, this family-friendly investment in a privileged pocket cuts across time. An inspection of this special home will be enjoyed by all.
