Federation fineness brought up to date
Character features everywhere. By NATALIE HORDOV

The older part of the home includes three bedrooms, with either walk-in or built-in robes, and two bathrooms.
Character features include a lovely leadlight front door, high ceilings, ceiling roses, fireplaces and picture rails.
Follow the hallway, with ornate arch, chandeliers and dado-height timber detailing, through to the open-plan kitchen/living/dining area.
It has built-in shelving and study station, and an ornate fireplace with tiled surround and hearth, and timber mantel.
The kitchen has stone benchtops, a glass splashback, stainless steel appliances and large island bench with breakfast bar.
French doors open from the living area to a covered entertaining area, backyard and pool.
Upstairs is a large parents’ retreat with master bedroom, walk-in robe, spa ensuite and study with built-in work stations.
The home is on a 352sq m block. ■
