Living here is a grand idea
Enjoy a well-established home where you can write your own family history, writes Tom Dougherty.
Asingle-storey character villa at Toorak Gardens has been renovated extensively and its five bedrooms provides ample room for a family.
The master is in the middle of the home and it features a builtin robe and direct access to a bathroom with a shower.
Three of the other bedrooms all have built-in robes, and they are serviced by a two-way bathroom with a bath and a separate shower.
At the back of the home is an open-plan kitchen, meals and family room with a combustion heater and polished timber floors.
The kitchen features European appliances, an island bench, space for a double fridge, granite benches and a triple pantry.
Also in the family room is a European laundry.
Attached to the family area is a bedroom that could be converted into a children’s playroom.
Next to the family room is a study, which has a built-in desk and a bookcase.
The entrance hall of the property features a glass chandelier, and it has double doors into a family/billiard room, which has a bay window that looks on to the yard.
At the front of the home is a formal loungeroom with a fireplace and a built-in cupboard.
There is also a formal dining room with a bay window, a fireplace and external access.
The property also has a cellar underneath, and a toilet accessible from the exterior of the home. There is an inground pool in the backyard.
Set on 2154sq m, the home has an established garden and a lawn area.
Located on Watson Ave, the home is within walking distance to The Parade and Burnside Shopping Centre.
There are schools nearby, including Loreto College, Marryatville High School, St Josephs and Saint Ignatius College.
