GRACIOUS HOME WITH A BLUE CHIP ADDRESS
This superbly crafted residence in a highly sought after location of Warragul, offers an enviable lifestyle of privacy, comfort and luxurious surrounds.
Set on an impeccably landscaped 1,216m2 elevated allotment, the home enjoys a marvellous, sweeping vista across the township whereas the rear of the property adjoins and has direct access to the golf course. A refined, elegant interior features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, home office, separate formal and family living areas together with a beautifully appointed kitchen. For outdoor entertaining, an extensive paved terrace, charming gazebo and a brick, natural gas barbeque are ideal for relaxed family gatherings whilst the bull nose verandah, which wraps three sides of the home, allows a sheltered spot to sit and soak up the garden oasis. The oversized double garage accommodates two vehicles plus a workshop and there is convenient storage space behind the garage for garden tools, bikes and sundry items.
There is a sense of old world elegance within the home where high ceilings, decorative plasterwork, exquisite leadlight glass and brick fireplaces enhance the heritage feel. Positioned at the front of the layout are the formal dining room, adjoining living room, the kitchen and family living area. The rear is dedicated to the main bedroom suite, two sizeable secondary bedrooms, family bathroom and two powder rooms. Large windows in the formal living rooms, including a bay window in the dining room, maximise the splendid views, an open fire place in the living area is an inviting feature for the cooler seasons.
With no compromise on detail or quality, the kitchen is well equipped for the home chef with multiple drawers, overheads, double pantry, stunning granite bench tops, a 900mm cooker with canopy rangehood and a Miele dishwasher. Nearby is the laundry with a walk-in linen press, built-in cabinetry and access to the verandah. Timber dado and exposed brick, including a gas log fire set into the large fireplace, create a more casual aesthetic to the family living area.
French doors lead out to the terrace, gazebo and along to the garage.
The main bedroom has a restful ambience with a lovely outlook over the front garden. A generous walkin robe/dressing room adjoins the ensuite, recently refurbished with classic period floor tiling, a stone topped vanity, walk-in shower and a toilet. There is a corner spa bath and large vanity in the family bathroom with a separate shower room adjacent. Built-in robes are found in the secondary bedrooms, inbuilt shelving and cabinetry are included in the home office and there are two linen closets in the hall.
A glass sliding door from the bedroom wing allows access to the verandah. Meticulously landscaped, the gardens are a delight with exotic magnolias, weeping cherries, maple trees, trimmed hedging and manicured lawn, whilst an impressive fountain adds to the peaceful setting. Terraced garden beds along the rear create a screen of privacy and conceal a path which leads up to the golf course with a short stroll to the Country Club. Ducted gas heating, split system air conditioning in the family room, a gas wall furnace in the bedroom wing and double hung sash windows throughout maintain year round comfort. Period light fittings, custom window coverings, ducted vacuuming and solar panels are further inclusions. With its classic heritage style, superb setting, warm and welcoming ambience, this gracious home would indeed be a special place to call home.
