The embodiment of comfort, style and easy indoor-outdoor living, the 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is imbued with an an air of authenticity and sits in its landscape with perfect poise. Add to this a panorama of city views and you will be ready to declare eternal devotion.
A slate-tiled entrance hints at the home’s 1970s provenance and a commitment to understated, quality finishes. To one side of the entry hall is a staircase leading to a mezzanine library and a balcony – the perfect spot to enjoy a quiet coffee or start writing that novel.
Moving into the home, steps lead to an expanse of bamboo-floored, open-plan living. It is here that windows along the western face of the home reveal the full benefits of an elevated site. Clever landscaping and a series of gently graded pathways soften the landscape so that your first glimpses across the tree tops and out to the city skyline are a thrilling surprise.
A central kitchen with sheoak bench tops is flanked by two living areas and opens to a formal dining room with unparalleled views. Leading to the wisteria-shaded deck at one end and the lawn and brick-paved terrace at the other, both spaces provide a stunning backdrop to entertaining or relaxing. Each evening, the interior glows as the sun sets behind the horizon.
The kitchen has been renovated to create a modern workspace that blends seamlessly with the home’s pedigree. A breakfast bar, induction cooktop and electric oven are surrounded with honey-coloured bench tops and gleaming white cabinets. A clerestory window provides natural light and the whimsy of glimpses of the moon, while the servery to the formal dining room is a smart and practical inclusion.
At one end of the living area is the main bedroom. There is little need for embellishment here, the city views are simply striking. Accessed via a large walk-in wardrobe, the ensuite features a rain head shower, vanity and W.C.
The three junior bedrooms are set up from the central living area. All are carpeted, the largest has a fitted robe, the other two have a wardrobe recess. The large family bathroom is also found on this upper level, so too a separate W.C and the large walk-through laundry with ample storage.
At the home’s south-west corner is a wonderfully inviting deck. Sheltered by wisteria, this spectacular entertaining area leads around the front of the home to a lawn and down one of the many paths winding through the easy-care, reticulated garden. Under the deck, a brick-paved forecourt leads to a garage/workshop. A 2-car carport is located behind the home.
If your heart skips a beat in the presence of authentic 1970s architecture, if you understand the joys of split-level floorplans, appreciate the unfailing beauty of an everchanging view and long to live in a location that feels connected to, but not overwhelmed by, the natural environment, prepare to fall deeply and irrevocably in love.
