An Inspired Contemporary Home
An inspired transformation of this property has created a stylish contemporary home.
Occupying a prime position amongst other prestigious homes, and situated just around the corner from Scotch Oakburn and Grammar, this North-East facing double-brick home has retained its charm and warmth from the original much-loved home.
With level access to the main entrance, the property features expansive open-plan living. The lounge-room features an exquisite travertine open fireplace which complements the Tassie-oak flooring, and picture-framed windows with double French doors enable ready access to a large entertaining deck, overlooking the delightful rear garden.
The light-filled dining room adjoins a superbly appointed kitchen, complete with chef-pleasing preparation areas and quality finishes. Two reverse-cycle split air-conditioning systems keep the house beautifully warm in the winter, supplemented by the open fire, and cool in the summer.
The three large upstairs bedrooms are fitted with highly-durable, easy-to-clean plantation shutters and superbly constructed built-in robes.
The main bathroom has a free-standing bath, shower with a frameless door, and a separately enclosed toilet. The second bathroom, also with a frameless shower, houses the fully concealed laundry behind ceiling-high folding doors. There is also a separate powder room/toilet, for the convenience of guests, and all bathrooms feature floor-to-ceiling tiling.
The floor plan offers versatile options, with perfect separation of the dual living areas, making the residence an ideal one for the professional, with its separate entrance to the downstairs area.
The area downstairs comprises a large, light-filled rumpus/lounge, with Tassie-oak flooring, slow-combustion fireplace, and a versatile bar/kitchenette area, making it adaptable for many individual needs. The bedroom has its own en-suite, custom-made built-ins, and is concealed behind an opaque glass panel, with a Hafle glass panel/door system, allowing plentiful light, but ensuring complete privacy.
There are plenty of additional storage areas, and double sliding doors give access to the outdoor garden area.
Opening onto the lawn area, the carport could also be used for private outdoor entertaining, with still enough grassed area remaining to house the kids' trampoline.
