A memorable example of a renovated 1913 return verandah, stone Villa. Currently disposed as three larger than large bedrooms, a calm and spacious lounge, full office, open plan family/dining/ kitchen, two bathrooms, laundry and huge alfresco. It's flexible in its layout, which makes it ideal for a large family or when entertaining. The 2013 premium built extension, includes a vast master suite, so well designed with views across the estate and outdoor access, along with a generous walk-in robe, and stylish ensuite.
It is a Lifestyle Property sitting high above the driveway with a glimpse of city lights at night and the sea during the day. The North facing, open plan rear entertaining, living, dining area gives glorious views over spectacular scenery.
Every element of a turn of the century villa has been fastidiously restored or reproduced. Baltic floors, ceiling roses, cove cornicing all fastidiously restored and the home extended over the years. Here is an amazing family home with everything done to a high level of craftsmanship. The uplifting feel of the 3.3 metre high ceilings in each room is continued in the 2013 extension at 3 metres with a heritage, arched timber, cathedral double doorway, inviting you into the modern open plan lounge, dining and kitchen meals area. Throughout, interesting neutral tones blend with the outside views, it's sophisticated homely and welcoming.
Imagine the original home, featuring golden Baltic pine boards through the wide dramatic hallway with ornate plaster archway leading you into each bedroom and lounge. The extension has authentic Jarrah boards, rich and glowing and easy to maintain. Space is everywhere, the rooms are all larger than doubles.
The modern kitchen with stone benchtops, European appliances and two pack island breakfast bar has loads of pot drawers and storage space and there is a butler's pantry with extensive shelving. Each bedroom has a lovely view, ceiling roses, high skirting boards, open fires, all the features expected in the character villa. There is no compromise - this home has been renovated with great love, even the stone pointing has been entirely redone.
Step outside, it is a resort, overlooking a gleaming, fully tiled pool and spacious surrounds. Relax undercover with ceiling fan, barbecue and enjoy friends and family swimming or playing tennis on the flood lit, all weather, astro turf court. There's something for everyone to enjoy, a lifestyle home, a homestead set apart. It's secluded, private, secure and very desirable.
