DAT­ING back to the early 1900s, this Fed­er­a­tion pe­riod res­i­dence has been ren­o­vated, re­stored and ex­tended.

Westhaven sits on a large 2031sq m block over two lots with a 50-me­tre street bound­ary and is be­ing of­fered for sale for only the sec­ond time in 100 years.

Orig­i­nally owned by lo­cal builder Jack Dun­lop, the prop­erty was bought by Corinda sta­tion mas­ter John Web­ster in 1911.

The quiet leafy street at­mos­phere is en­hanced with Jacaranda trees fram­ing the res­i­dence, which is over two lev­els with a north­ern ori­en­ta­tion and in­cludes a pool and tennis court.

A cov­ered ve­randa wraps around the front of the res­i­dence on the up­per level fea­tur­ing tim­ber balustrades and a lat­tice­work door.

The res­i­dence fea­tures many char­ac­ter­is­tics of the early 1900s in­clud­ing VJ walls, dou­ble hung win­dows, French doors and win­dow hoods.

The main en­try door leads into a hall­way boast­ing a pol­ished English Oak floor and ac­cess to an of­fice with car­pet and French doors lead­ing to the front ve­randa.

The room flows through a dec­o­ra­tive pedestal arch to a for­mal lounge and din­ing room.

To the left is an in­for­mal din­ing room and a bed­room look­ing to the front of the res­i­dence and ad­ja­cent is a mod­ern kitchen added in 2010 and nearby sun­room with views to the tennis court.

Fea­tur­ing an is­land bench with break­fast bar, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a Bosch oven, warm­ing drawer, con­vec­tion oven, dish­washer, gas cook­top and Sam­sung fridge freezer with Tas­ma­nian Black­wood cab­i­netry, the kitchen flows to a cov­ered ve­randa at the rear of the floor­plan.

Also open­ing to the rear ve­randa is a liv­ing room while at the rear of the floor­plan is the main bed­room, added last year, and boast­ing a bay win­dow with win­dow seat, walk-in wardrobe and en­suite with twin van­i­ties, a spa bath and sep­a­rate


floor and shower, benches.

On the right of the floor­plan are two bed­rooms ser­viced by a bath­room with a sep­a­rate bath­tub and shower. The bed­room at the front of the floor­plan opens to the front ve­randa and has tim­ber cab­i­netry while the ad­ja­cent bed­room fea­tures built-in wardrobes and a ceil­ing fan.

A Kwila tim­ber stair­case leads to the lower level and two sep­a­rate floor­plans boast­ing Silky Oak win­dow frames and doors.

In one sec­tion, a wine cel­lar holds 2000 bot­tles and nearby are util­ity and stor­age rooms.

An­other sep­a­rate floor­plan boasts a rum­pus room with wet bar and tiled floor. Nearby is a laun­dry and bath­room with a shower.

Other fea­tures in­clude smoke alarms, air­con­di­tion­ing, 10 wa­ter tanks with a 22,100 litre ca­pac­ity and an orchid house.

The lawn tennis court has a north-south axis with the in­ground saltwater pool at the rear of the res­i­dence.
