traditional villa with contemporary edge
TRADITIONAL charm for a contemporary lifestyle – this large family home has it all. Walk through the front of the home to find all the features expected of a stunning early 1900s villa but upon reaching the rear discover contemporary open-plan living.
Agent Christine Auld says this home has everything today’s buyers are looking for.
‘‘There is a large open-plan living and dining,’’ Ms Auld says.
‘‘There also is a formal lounge at the front to use as a parent’s escape, which is what people want these day.’’
A fireplace is the feature of the front lounge room, which really does make it the perfect place to relax after a long day.
The rear extension incorporates the living, dining and kitchen area.
Large picture windows and two sets of french doors overlook the swimming pool in the backyard.
The sophisticated kitchen features granite benchtops, walk-in pantry and stainless steel appliances.
Each of the five bedrooms is a good size to support a growing family.
‘‘Usually the bedrooms in homes that have four or five are small but this house has generous doubles,’’ Ms Auld said.
The master bedroom includes an en suite, walk-in wardrobe and french doors that open up to a secluded courtyard. Two other bedrooms are fitted with built-in wardrobes.
‘‘This is a lovely big family home with plenty for the kids,’’ Ms Auld says.
A huge swimming pool dominates the backyard and is surrounded by paving, the perfect place to relax while keeping a watchful eye.
The lush, easy-care front garden features established plants and a lawn area where the kids can safely play.
The home is in walking distance of premium schools, Brownhill Creek picnic grounds and the local watering hole, The Ed.
