Sometimes a property just feels like a home.
This superb dwelling occupies a prime 812m2 block in a quiet Bardon location and it offers spacious, resort style living with multiple areas for relaxing or entertaining and the added bonus of versatile self-contained accommodation.
The home has undergone a thorough makeover and exudes a timeless and elegant aesthetic. Upon entry you are welcomed into the sumptuous living, dining and kitchen area. A new, double-sided Escea gas fireplace is a stunning feature and a significant investment, however the money was well spent. It not only creates warmth and interest, but also a subtle separation between the living and dining rooms. The kitchen is new and boasts quality appliances, plenty of storage and a breakfast bench. A glass splashback floods the area with light and makes a beautiful picture window to the backdeck and greenery. This is a wonderful, communal family zone that enjoys easy access to the generously sized deck, allowing living to spill outside with ease.
A sheltered terrace creates an ideal area for a BBQ beside the swimming pool and there is also an elevated pool house - a brilliant space that's perfect as a teenage retreat, as an artist's studio or for hosting memorable dinner parties. For large families or those that enjoy entertaining, this home offers a smorgasbord of options - there's always a place to wine, dine or relax regardless of the weather or season.
There are four bedrooms on the upper level. The Master has it's own brand new ensuite, while the other bedrooms share the recently renovated main bathroom, which is beautifully appointed and has a striking, organic shaped bathtub. The bedrooms are all generously sized; one opens onto the terrace, while the other two are positioned near a cosy lounge, which is ideal as a TV room or for quiet relaxation. The laundry is also conveniently located on this level and is cleverly concealed behind cupboards.
Downstairs is a beautifully presented and fully self-contained 'apartment', with a bedroom and living area opening to its own private patch of garden. This space has its own separate entry and has delivered significant income via Airbnb, however it is also ideal as accommodation for a nanny or family members wanting independent living.
The home is surrounded by lush and thoughtfully landscaped gardens, which are also surprisingly low maintenance. There is plenty of off-street parking, including a double lock up garage with automatic security gate and storage galore.
The property is tucked away in a very quiet and coveted location, but it allows you to enjoy an inner city lifestyle. It's close to the popular Bardon Shed and the shops of Rosalie and Paddington and is in the catchment for the highly regarded Rainworth State School.
This is a really lovely home that offers stylish and versatile living and can easily cater for different stages of life. Be careful - you may never want to leave.
