Expertly restored heritage home
Gazing out towards Wilston Hill from an elevated 1045sqm block less than 10 minutes from the CBD, this masterpiece home has been completely restored to combine the grandeur of its 1860s origins with the convenience of modern living, offering a truly unique living experience!
No expense has been spared in recreating the home's character features, with original floorboards and ceilings, VJ walls and lead-light windows bolstered by a complete repainting throughout. Ducted aircon and ceiling fans throughout the home ensure climate-controlled comfort no matter the time of year. Three dedicated bedrooms offer plenty of space along with terrace access, while the master room comes complete with a gorgeous marble ensuite that has been renovated to the highest quality. Add in double walk-in wardrobes and access to both the deck and poolside terrace and you have all the ingredients for an unbeatable parents' retreat. There is the option to use the fourth room on the lower level as a bedroom or as an additional storage room.
The upper level of the home plays host to an enormous living/dining room complete with luxury fittings and custom chandeliers that perfectly capture the home's original 1860s essence. Exterior access to the wraparound deck makes this a great spot for indoor/outdoor living or just enjoying the fantastic views! Downstairs you'll find an additional living space ideal for use as a media room, along with a terrific custom-designed wine cellar.
The fully renovated kitchen is an entertainer's dream thanks to its central location and fabulous design. The stone island benchtop and custom cabinetry offer plenty of space to work with, while revolutionary Gaggenau appliances add that extra flair of luxury that truly turns the kitchen into something special. Mealtimes provide a great opportunity to use one of the home's unique features – a gorgeous conservatory opening out to the garden that is just perfect for dinner or drinks with family and friends.
The tranquil garden is a delightful inner city oasis with landscaped gardens, grassed space and a sparkling in-ground family pool. You are sure to enjoy plenty of quiet weekends relaxing in the peace and serenity this space offers. The landscaped gardens also feature at the front of the home, wrapping the entire property in lush greenery for both privacy and a vibrant, natural feeling.
