Immersed in the privacy of its exclusive surroundings, this masterfully renovated residence from circa 1890 is framed by Eckersley design-inspired gardens offers the finest modern amenities within a framework of Victorian grandeur. Illuminated in natural light and enveloped in calming leafy aspects at every turn, the architecturally curated interiors and exteriors have been executed to perfection with the attention to detail and quality of the finishes embracing timeless contemporary aesthetics and functionality for family life in an intelligently zoned floorplan. A showcase of unmatched grandeur introduced by a breathtaking arched entry, the home is a feast for the senses with 3.9-meter...

ceilings crowning the five front principal rooms, which include a glorious bay-windowed living room, three bedrooms, and a versatile fourth bedroom/parent's retreat/home office or formal dining room beneath gold-painted ornate decor. Providing the peace and quiet of acoustic separation between front and rear, a tall door opens to reveal the informal zone where 3.3-meter ceilings rise above the enormous family and dining room overseen by a gourmet kitchen designed for entertaining with Miele appliances, central island bench/breakfast bar, Zip Hydro instant hot water tap, stone benchtops, and push-and-touch cabinetry. Double-glazed commercial-grade triple-slider doors create a seamless transition to a side and rear courtyard, backdropped by the soothing effect of a trickling water feature and Patrick Blanc-inspired vertical gardens. The first of the two bathrooms is offset by a warehouse ambiance with its inventive combination of original tiles and antique cabinet with a pedestal bath, separate shower, and black trimmings. The comprehensive list of features includes reverse-cycle ducted heating and air conditioning, cleverly camouflaged Endless Pool Swim Spa five open fireplaces – four in marble surrounds, tessellated tiled front verandah and chimneys, mosaic-tiled façade frieze, Royal Oak timber floors, off-street parking for 3 cars, and rear laneway access through both a pedestrian gate and roller door.
