Designed by Architects EAT and recently featured in multiple publications including House & Garden, this award-winning four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom Edwardian residence sits on 820 square meters of spectacular estate-like gardens. Called 'Carpenter's Square House' due to the L-shaped addition that hugs the existing house, this bespoke home retains some of its majestic rooms while being architecturally transformed to blend striking design elements with its original turn of the century grandeur. Making quite a lasting impression, the original Edwardian residence has been painstakingly restored to showcase the wrap-around tessellated tiled verandah, spectacular hand-painted, gold-leaf pressed-metal ceilings, picture rails, leadlights, whitewashed Baltic pine floorboards...

in the gorgeous receiving room (OFP), splendid sitting room, and magnificent guest bedroom (OFP). A grey subway-tiled stone bathroom and the fitted family laundry then connect the home into another dimension. Thermal mass heating is created by the use of brick floors and quarter walls that are featured in the amazing open plan living and dining area with its concave Victorian Ash timber battened ceiling, gas log fire, and picture windows looking into a Zen garden and the sublime heated pool. The impressive stone kitchen is equipped with Asko appliances and a wine refrigerator and has a curved wall that conceals the walk-in pantry with a fitted cellar. A brick bridge leads into the luxurious main bedroom with its study area, spectacular dressing room, and impressive brick-floored ensuite with sumptuous bath and automated external louvre blinds to create privacy or let the Zen garden inside. With views of the straight of Caulfield Racecourse, upstairs features two attic-style bedrooms with fitted built-in robes and desks, and a stylish bathroom. An undercover alfresco patio sits next to the pool and is serviced by a powder room. Finely crafted and materially rich, this bespoke masterpiece is appointed with Daikin ducted heating/ air conditioning, double glazing, wool carpets, a garden shed, an auto gate to a double carport plus a second driveway for caravan/boat parking. Walk to Caulfield Station.   Contact an agent for more information.
