The Perfect Blend of Victorian Elegance and Contemporary Living

Privately positioned on a celebrated street lined with exceptional period homes, this effortlessly elegant 4 bedroom block-fronted Victorian home’s integrity is meticulously matched by an inspired contemporary rejuvenation on approx. 715m2 with North facing rear garden.

Upon grand leadlit and arched entry, discover all 4 bedrooms zoned to the front, generous in scope and punctuated by delicate period flourishes and finishes. A luxurious family bathroom showcases a freestanding oval-shaped bath and a truly indulgent twin shower. Perfect for any chosen scale, a formal dining room with imposing open fireplace is a warmly welcoming space.

The home impressively opens up to reveal the spacious comforts of an open-plan family living area, attracting natural northern light under soaring ceilings. The kitchen’s chic and sleek Neolith surface bench-tops and splash back are complemented by top-of-the-range Smeg and Asko appliances.

A prominently placed window neatly separates the kitchen’s luxe island bench, blurring the line between the internal and external. This triumph of high-end scale and innovation services both indoor and outdoor living and entertaining areas, seamlessly connecting for lazy lattes and cool beverages all day long. This is a serious game-changer and received a fitting top 10 finish in the 2016 Kitchen of the Year – Inside Out Magazine.

Enjoy uncomplicated flow outdoors to a blue stone-bordered garden attracting northern light and presenting a whole range of entertaining possibilities. There is a relaxed warmth at play here under a quartet of established palm trees, both inviting and family-friendly. The north-facing pool and spa are natural attractions with the added benefits of a powder room and shower alongside them. Take advantage of a double remote-controlled garage at the rear of the property, accessed via a lane-way along the perimeter.
