Surrounded by stunning landscaped gardens this grand old lady exudes elegance and sophistication. The beautiful black turpentine floors are showcased in the foyer and continue throughout the main living areas. The lounge/dining room is complemented by a charming bay window, custom moulded architraves, ceiling roses, gorgeous chandeliers and the superb craftsmanship of the built-in cabinetry. A dramatic sweeping staircase leading to the upper level completes this unique living space.
Off the foyer, the original library has been repurposed and a bathroom added to deliver a more versatile floor space, in keeping with today’s lifestyle and preferences. Used by the current owner as a second TV room, this space could equally serve as a home office, a children’s play den, a multi-media room, and/or another downstairs ensuite bedroom, perfect for visiting house guests.
The French provincial style kitchen with a marble island, high end cabinetry and bi-fold servery is a standout feature of the home and an entertainers dream. The kitchen seamlessly integrates with a charming, double screened indoor/outdoor living space of grand proportions (think English conservatory) that overlooks the saltwater pool and stunning back garden. The incredible landscaping includes three high-yielding above ground vegetable gardens ensuring the kitchen is never without produce. There is even a purpose built garden sink!
The light and airy master suite is conveniently situated on the ground floor and incorporates a generous custom-fitted walk-in robe. The ensuite is complemented by the original claw-foot bath that has been lovingly restored. A glamorous powder room, large family laundry and under-stairs storage complete the ground level.
The sweeping turned staircase leads upstairs to a break-out / seating area and another three well proportioned bedrooms served by a family bathroom, and a spacious attic storage.
In December 2021, the beautiful, original terracotta roof was completely restored by the current owner to prepare and protect this wonderful home for future generations. The extensive restoration work encompassed cleaning, re-pointing, replacement of barge tiles, new lead flashing and upstairs guttering and replacement of the timber gables.
