Alluring Style with Tranquil Gardens
Renovated and extended this family-sized Victorian captures the evocative character of its era while seamlessly embracing contemporary style.
Indoor-outdoor entertaining excellence amid beautiful botanic surrounds, the generously scaled home engages the senses from start to finish with an original ruby-red, leadlight-adorned front door and glorious arched entry leading to an inviting sitting room at the front complemented by an expansive living and dining room at the rear.
Two sets of French doors lead to an alluring alfresco area with sizeable decking, firepit surrounded by built-in seating perfect for a red wine under the stars and a deep landscaped garden with a sunny northeast orientation and plenty of room for kids’ playtime. The benefit of ROW laneway access offers the potential for off-street parking.
Bound to appeal to the most serious of cooks, the gourmet kitchen is appointed with Neff side-by-side ovens, gas cooktop and rangehood, Asko dishwasher, big butler’s pantry, stainless-steel benchtops and a central island bench/breakfast bar topped in warm American Oak.
A main ensuite bedroom with dressing room, three more bedrooms with built-in robes, a central family bathroom and a large laundry complete the layout.
Further highlights include ducted heating, split-system air conditioner, Oregon Pine floors, towering decorative ceilings and cornices, Plantation shutters, a garden shed and purpose-built cabinetry providing excellent storage in the main living zones.
Enjoying a tranquil location in a sought-after bayside locale, the home is a walk away from Martin Street Village, bus services, Gardenvale Station, schools, Kamesburg Gardens, Elsternwick Park and the beach.
