Superb period details – roses and a white picket fence, leadlight windows and views of heritage listed trees – merge beautifully with an extension designed for modern living – a sensational kitchen with marble counters, indoor-outdoor living and an alfresco entertaining deck overlooking the below ground pool. This stunning 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom family home is set in a prime residential precinct with easy access to shopping, transport, leading schools and parks and will impress those with the highest of standards.
The floorplan of the original 1927 weatherboard and iron cottage is comprised of a large bedroom suite with walk-through wardrobe and fully tiled ensuite – ideal for a teen or as a private guest suite, with a formal lounge opposite creating a functional self-contained apartment – and a study and sitting room complete the original layout. The sitting room is perfectly utilised as a music room but could just as easily be as a separate, yet ‘observable’ space in which the kids can enjoy screen time.
Linking the old with the new, louvred glass windows provide cross-ventilation and create a seemingly invisible bridge to the modern open-plan, ground-floor living areas. A family room, dining area and show-stopping kitchen flow effortlessly to the alfresco entertaining area and beyond. Jarrah flooring throughout the home brings a sense of solidity and enhances the harmony between then and now.
The lounge features a superbly efficient Stovax wall-mounted fireplace and is an inviting and comfortable balance of snug and spacious. A dining area allows room for a large family table and looks out to the rear deck and swimming pool. The kitchen is a delight: modern, practical and stylish with white marble countertops, white cabinetry and prestige appliances. A central island incorporates a breakfast bar and additional storage. The scullery adjoining the kitchen features a butler’s sink, dishwasher, a bank of floor-to-ceiling pull-out pantries and has space for a large refrigerator.
This home is resolutely designed for indoor-outdoor living. Bi-fold windows in the kitchen open to create a servery to the alfresco entertaining area while the dining area is transformed into an indoor-outdoor room by opening a wall of concertina glass doors.
A wide timber staircase leads from the family room to the spacious and bright first-floor landing. Across one end of the first floor sits a double vanity arranged between a luxury bathroom and separate W.C. The stylish bathroom features a freestanding bathtub and large shower. A wall of cupboards and a laundry chute are convenient first-floor inclusions.
Both of the first-floor junior bedrooms are generously-sized and incorporate built-in robes. The main bedroom suite features an ensuite and large walk-in robe. Views of a heritage-listed Morton Bay Fig and Cork tree provide a reminder of this property’s deep heritage.
Crafted with the experience of daily life firmly in mind, ceiling fans and reverse-cycle air-conditioners are fitted throughout the property. Direct access from the pool and deck to the laundry, mudroom and 4th W.C. means no wet feet or soggy bathers traipsing through the home. A series of raised veggie beds and a Colorbond shed are surrounded with lawn and gardens maintained by automatic reticulation. The 2-car carport is accessed via a wide automatic gate and a second side entry leads to a paved space in which to play basketball or park a boat and a shoppers’ entry to the scullery. A beautiful cubby under the stairs, a dartboard in the carport and room for a trampoline on the lawn complete the myriad of practical features that this spectacular home offers to a busy family.
Adjoining Guildford Grammar and with rail transport on your doorstep, the property is perfectly positioned to take the rush out of the morning madness. A real family home meets the demands of life across the years, it adapts to changes in lifestyle by providing individual spaces as well as places to be together. A home that allows this flexibility and freedom grows happy families and remains in the heart for generations. Create a priceless past, enjoy a beautiful present and find your future here.
