Op­u­lence im­presses

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Spotlight On Gilberton -

OP­U­LENT fin­ishes fea­ture from the grand en­try at a Malvern prop­erty. Other ex­am­ples are a sandstone wa­ter fea­ture, curved floor-to-ceil­ing bay win­dows and mar­ble col­umns, which give the house a clas­sic style.

‘‘The lounge room is near the home en­try and the main fea­ture is the curved, floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘It’s a lovely room to sit in and it in­vites you out to the lawn and the gar­dens.

‘‘High ceil­ings are through­out the home and the or­nately carved ar­chi­traves around the door­ways are a per­fect fin­ish­ing touch.’’

The feel­ing of op­u­lence also ex­tends to the large bed­rooms.

The main bed­room fea­tures a gen­er­ously sized ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe.

‘‘The rooms are very large and the main bed­room is a par­tic­u­larly nice space,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘It leads out to a court­yard, which is the per­fect spot to sit and have a cup of tea or cof­fee in the morn­ing.

‘‘It’s also a won­der­ful way to bring light into the space and large win­dows all around the house make the space very light and bright.

‘‘The home uses the best as­pects of the north­ern sun.’’

The fam­ily room also makes the most of the sun­light, with win­dows look­ing out to a sandstone set­ting.

The kitchen/din­ing space be­side the fam­ily room boasts Euro­pean ap­pli­ances, gran­ite benches, ex­ten­sive stor­age and nooks for tuck­ing away ap­pli­ances.

A fourth bed­room at the front of the house of­fers a great spot to place a home of­fice. The ven­dor en­joys the pri­vacy this area pro­vides.

‘‘The beauty of this room is that there is a door lead­ing out­side,’’ he says.

‘‘If you have peo­ple com­ing over, you don’t have to go all the way through the house.

‘‘It would be great for some­one work­ing from home.’’
