This masterfully renovated, multi level property occupies an elevated position in a popular Paddington location. What was once a humble cottage is now a stunning and spacious home, with generous living and entertaining areas and a superb, lifestyle friendly layout.
Cleverly conceived by the architect/owner, the property has an inspired split-level design, offering great connection within the home. There is a secure gated entry with remote access and a light-filled vestibule creates a lovely welcome. A secure double garage has generous storage space and a dumb-waiter delivers to the main living zone, making it easy to unpack groceries or transfer heavy items.
On the first level, a formal lounge is a sophisticated space to relax or entertain and it features a fireplace and a balcony to the front with views across the suburb. Adjoining the lounge is a large bedroom that is currently used as a home office and there is a guest bathroom.
The spacious mid level is the hub of the home and the kitchen is the command centre. This space enjoys a peaceful and private outlook to the lush garden and it connects easily with all living, dining and entertaining areas. Taking centre stage is a magnificent granite island bench, crafted from a single slab, which took nine men to lift into position. The kitchen boasts high-end V Zug appliances, including double ovens. Storage is taken care of with plenty of cabinetry featuring Blum fittings and a very handy breakfast station, while along a neighbouring wall is a workstation that's perfect for homework. A large informal living area at the rear of the home is a versatile space great for watching TV, but if it's too rowdy, this room can be conveniently blocked off.
Bi-fold doors connect the kitchen and dining area with the covered rear terrace, integrated BBQ facilities, flat lawn and heated swimming pool. This is an ideal and highly sought after lifestyle layout, made even better by a perfect northerly aspect.
On the upper level, you will find four good-sized bedrooms, all with built-in storage. The Master has walk-in clothes storage and an ensuite bathroom, with double vanities, a double shower and freestanding bath. The main bathroom has a shower over bath and quality fittings, porcelain tiles, stone benchtops and a laundry chute. Other features of this impressive home include ducted air/con, zoned security system and a 10,000l rainwater tank.
The location is also first class. Tranquil Annie St, one of the suburb's prettiest and just 3km to the CBD, offers a short stroll to Rosalie Village and Paddington Central, and is within the catchment for Milton State School.
This is a wonderful home; stylish and contemporary and brilliantly designed to cater for a relaxed and easy lifestyle.
