Deep, lined wraparound verandahs, high ceilings, decorative leadlight panels, original float glass sash windows and French doors feature, an enchanting reminder of the home’s history. Opening onto a sizeable deck and just a few steps from the inground mineral pool and sundrenched terrace, an expanse of bi-fold doors blurs the line between the elegant formal living areas and relaxed casual exteriors, making impressive, special occasion entertaining effortless and ultimately practical.
Extended some 10 years ago, the contemporary addition incorporates modern materials into its form, utilising concrete, timber and steel and showcasing a dramatic, double height living space with floor to ceiling glass.

With a timber lined ceiling and polished concrete floor, the contemporary, north facing lower-level library lounge offers a versatility of use as a games or media zone, a spectacular indoor conversation or entertaining area with its glass edging and level yard access, and a creative, work from home space.
The parents’ only retreat is located on this level, a luxurious, garden view suite with French doors and plantation shutters, a generously proportioned, custom designed walk-in robe and an indulgent ensuite with deep, porcelain freestanding bath, frosted glass amenities dividers and high-quality fittings and fixtures.
On the upper floor there are three oversized, immaculately presented bedrooms, all of which are beautifully styled and built-in, opening via French doors to either the home’s wide verandah or a private balcony in the case of the guest or second master suite.
