A timeless illustration of character-rich integrity over two levels, this high-gabled and handsome 4 bedroom (plus study) home expertly blends elegant Arts and Crafts artistry with Art Deco charm in a true position of privilege.

Substantial period flourishes add grandeur, from ornate open fireplaces to bevelled glass doors, a bay window and ornamental timber framework. Enjoy a versatile study and a separate kitchen featuring a high-end Miele dishwasher. A more recent addition is a wonderfully bright family room under exposed timber beams, connecting with the privacy of a low-maintenance, leafy garden.

Head upstairs via a timber-railed staircase with colourful leadlighting at eye level. Boasting commanding treetop vistas, the quartet of  large and light bedrooms are staged on this floor, serviced by a bathroom.

Comprehensive features include a large laundry, storage under stairs, double-brick construction, ducted heating, split-system air conditioning in the dining room, a single garage plus additional driveway parking, a workshop/shed, and an outdoor shower and WC.
