Positioned in a quiet and elevated location on a magnificent 2327m2 block, this superb property embodies peaceful and private acreage style living in an urban environment.
With a flood lit tennis court, large swimming pool and generous entertaining areas, this gracious home offers a luxurious escape from city life.
Upon entry, hardwood timber floors, soaring ceilings and a wide hall create a sense of grandeur. The property feels solid and substantial and it has been meticulously constructed. A comprehensive, architect designed renovation injected fresh life into the home, delivering a stylish and timeless residence.
A study and a sumptuous formal lounge straddle the hallway at the entrance and could easily be utilised as a home office and reception area.
The combined kitchen, dining and lounge is the hub of the home and it is exceptional. Bi-fold doors link the internal spaces with the huge covered terrace and BBQ area, which overlooks the swimming pool and enjoys a sweeping, suburban outlook. This is a magnificent space; inviting indoor/outdoor living and is equally suited to intimate gatherings or entertaining on a grand scale.
The beautifully appointed kitchen features stone benchtops, a suite of Miele appliances including an induction cooktop, double ovens and a steam oven. There are integrated Vintec wine fridges and a homework station cleverly concealed behind cabinetry. The adjoining lounge has a combustion fireplace and a neighbouring media room offers a separate space for relaxation.
Further entertaining is available outside, where there is a pavilion overlooking the newly re-groomed and floodlit, North/South tennis court. Beyond the tennis court is more garden and even a shed for some lucky chooks.
The entry level also has a gym and full bathroom, plus a family sized laundry.
The upper level has been freshly carpeted and there are four bedrooms, plus a study. The Master is very generously sized and has a walk-in robe and ensuite with double vanities, shower and separate bath. There is another bedroom with an ensuite and private balcony and the other two bedrooms share the main bathroom. All of the bathrooms boast quality, imported fittings and stone benchtops.
So much thought has gone into this property to create a residence that is sophisticated without being fussy and liveability is the top priority. There is an abundance of clever storage throughout the home, so everything has its place. There is double secure parking and room for more vehicles to park on the gated driveway. It has garden lighting, video security, air/con throughout and a solar system keeps energy costs low.
The location is quiet yet on the doorstep of shops and bus transport and it sits in the catchment for Ashgrove State School and is close to Mater Dei Primary School and Marist College. There are also fantastic walking and bike tracks through the nearby bushland.
This home is a sensational, low maintenance sanctuary that celebrates easy living, albeit on a large and luxurious scale.
