From the eyelash sweeping verandahs, to the Pierre de Ronsard arbour framing the front entrance path, this beautifully presented period reproduction will have you falling in love from the moment you drive up the street.
Personally designed by the current owners, the home has been crafted like no other. The soaring ceilings greet you once you enter the leadlight surround front door. The entry is reminiscent of those traditional period homes with a stunning solid oak stair case, high skirtings and decorative ceiling rose with a vintage light fitting.
Double French doors lead to the romantic and stylish front formal living room. The gas fireplace with granite plinth and decorative carved timber mantle gives the room a warm and inviting feeling.
To the right of the entry is the stunning kitchen and dining room. The lofty ceilings and traditional style cabinetry in the kitchen will have you transported to the pages of a house and garden magazine. A stunning antique chandelier anchors the dining room, while the kitchen features a large colonial bay window bringing in an abundance of natural light. The solid timber kitchen cupboards with polished oak benchtops will delight, while the recessed cooker gives a nod to the kitchens of yesteryear. The free-standing 900mm oven and 6 burner cooktop is a stand-out. There is a Miele dishwasher, double fridge alcove and a magnificent 6 metre long butler’s pantry with an insane amount of storage!
If this amount of storage isn’t enough for you, then venture behind the home to see the excessive amount of work-shop/storage area. This undercroft area leads to the double garage with rear garden access. There is a powder room on this level also.
Upstairs you arrive at a stunning family room with gorgeous timber floors. French doors open to the rear garden and patio/pergola area. There are four bedrooms on this level plus a study. All have a unique feel with one to the rear of the home, and two at the front of the home featuring built-in robes. The study features a wall of built-in book shelving giving it a cosy ambiance and versatility as a study, nursery or 5th bedroom. French doors in this room lead to the balcony overlooking Ross Reserve. The master suite is grand with imported English wallpaper, ensuite bathroom and large walk-in robe. In keeping with the era, the bathroom has a vintage style vanity with timber top and all the tiles are white, giving it a modern feel.
The family bathroom keeps with the traditional feel and has a spa bath and vanity with brass tapware and a white, crisp edge.
The laundry is generous with a huge bench and ample cupboard and linen space.
The sloping allotment means the top storey opens to the back garden. Full of fruit trees and plenty of lawn, this area also has access to the side road, perfect for additional off-street parking. The garden is well established and there is plenty of room for a pool (SNC).
