In a coveted location on the city fringe, this beautifully restored 1900's bay villa is intriguing the minute you enter. Behind the electric gates is a fully secure family home with an absolute twist to cater to the most fastidious buyer. This is modernised family living, reimagined.
Encompassing approximately 308m2 over 2 levels, many original features remain as a homage to its traditional, endearing design. Pressed steel ceilings, gleaming timber flooring and stunning leadlight windows have been fully restored in all their glory.
The front of the home offers 4 bedrooms retaining their generous proportions. The master features an enviable walk through dressing room and a massive light filled ensuite. The three remaining bedrooms share an impressively proportioned bathroom with excellent storage. One is currently utilised as a media room, and is an easy convert if required.
A unique and creative juxtaposition between traditional and contemporary flows seamlessly from the front to the back. An ambitious and proficiently executed renovation has created an absolutely entrancing, modern living space with an edgy, industrial feel. Vaulted ceilings, honed concrete walls, polished floors and a full height fireplace are standout features. The large designer kitchen with up to the minute offerings such as double ovens, a warming drawer, induction cooking and built in refrigeration provides ample work space ideal for entertaining. The formal dining is flanked by a stunning custom stained glass window.
The entertaining charm continues with seamless flow to the large north facing deck with a large louvretec roof through solid stacker doors. The designer tropical gardens compliment the intimate and uber private backyard complete with cedar hot tub and container plunge pool.
The lower floor is a masterful extension to the property accessed internally through the living space. Adjacent to the extra large double garage is a large storage void, a workshop area with wall space generous enough to accommodate bikes and kayaks. The tiled laundry area is family focussed and the absolute surprise bonus is a self contained apartment complete with kitchenette and newly updated bathroom. It's a perfect hideaway for teenagers or guests. There is off street parking for up to 5 vehicles for game days.
Whilst utilising an accomplished cross breeze for ventilation by design, the home also offers underfloor air conditioning as well as the gas fire in the living and heated floors in the ensuite and main bathroom.
