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.
