WORK up a sweat, take a dip to cool off, then e n j o y a d r i n k wi t h friends and fam­ily – you can do it all in this charm­ing villa. Vic­to­rian el­e­gance warmly wel­comes new own­ers upon ar­rival.

The ca­sual sur­rounds at the rear of the prop­erty – com­plete with ten­nis court and so­lar-heated swim­ming pool – of­fer a place to re­lax.

Agent An­thony Toop says this prop­erty has ev­ery lux­ury a fam­ily could ask for and still main­tains a re­laxed mood.

‘‘It has ev­ery pos­si­ble fam­ily at­trac­tion that you could imag­ine in­clud­ing pool and mas­sive un­der-cover out­door en­ter­tain­ment area,’’ Mr Toop says.

‘‘This is the sort of prop­erty you will have all your chil­dren bring their friends back to.’’

The ex­tended rear liv­ing space in­cor­po­rates large liv­ing, kitchen and meals ar­eas.

Floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows over­look the pool, a stun­ning wa­ter fea­ture, flood­lit north-south ten­nis court and al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing area, es­tab­lish­ing in­ter­ac­tion be­tween in­doors and out­doors.

Mr Toop says more than 100 peo­ple can com­fort­ably be seated in the un­der-cover out­door space.

‘‘It’s con­fig­ured for hav­ing friends and fam­ily around for Christ­mas and the New Year, he says.’’

Twin speak­ers are in­stalled in the un­der-cover pavil­ion, cre­at­ing a true party at­mos­phere.

The Queen Anne villa com­prises nine main rooms fin­ished with su­perb pol­ished Baltic pine floors, lead­light, fire­places, ceil­ing rosettes and wide, arched pas­sage­ways.

‘‘The big dif­fer­ence with this res­i­dence com­pared with other Vic­to­rian-style homes in the area is this prop­erty still has a cer­tain feel­ing of re­lax­ation so it is not os­ten­ta­tious,’’ Mr Toop says.

Or­nate dou­ble doors fea­tur­ing lead-light det on both sides of the large en­try hall open to t for­mal din­ing and lounge rooms.

Both rooms are fin­ished with fire­place a el­e­gant light fit­tings hang­ing from the lofty 3.5 ceil­ings.

Five dou­ble bed­rooms are off the se­conda hall­way, which leads to the ex­tended ca­sual livi space.

The mas­ter bed­room is fit­ted with a built wardrobe and walk-in wardrobe plus en sui The spa­cious fam­ily bath­room fea­tures a doub

As well as the two un­der-cover park­ing spa­ces, there is plenty of off-street park­ing, which is se­cured by the front gates.

Mr Toop says fam­ily-ori­ented pro­fes­sional peo­ple with a pas­sion for the out­doors will fall in love with this home. ‘‘It is lo­cated in a pres­tige sub­urb,’’ he says. ‘‘It’s right in the heart of Un­ley Park.
