Time taken To­tal spend End value

stalling a stair­case. “We lived with that for quite a num­ber of years and then put in the pool,” Dr Ryan said.

Nine years ago, they in­stalled a float­ing car­port with a turntable down the side of the house.

But the ma­jor ren­o­va­tion took place four years ago. The main ren­o­va­tion work in­volved adding an en­tire new level on top of the house, which has four bed­rooms, a walk-in wardrobe, en­suite, a bath­room, a sep­a­rate toi­let and an in­ter­nal front ve­randa. The kitchen is a work of art in it­self, fea­tur­ing Black­butt tim­ber join­ery, a quartzite is­land bench­top and three ovens, two dish­wash­ers and an in­duc­tion cook­top. The lounge fea­tures a mar­ble and quartzite dou­ble fire­place.

The lower level did not need as much work, be­sides paint­ing and re­car­pet­ing.

There is also a pool room and mu­sic room, a kitch­enette and home of­fice on this level, which opens out to an out­door en­ter­tain­ing ter­race, and 15m, heated swim­ming pool.

Dr Ryan said she spent many years work­ing on the garden, which con­sists of more than 2000 ma­ture and es­tab­lished plants and trees and a cubby house.

To en­ter the house is through a Ba­li­nese in­spired garden court­yard that leads to a grand foyer.

The ex­te­rior of the house is clad in spot­ted gum.

It is on a fenced 890sq m dou­ble block – 3km from the CBD and within walk­ing dis­tance to Padding­ton’s din­ing and shop­ping precinct.

The prop­erty is be­ing mar­keted by Ivo Kor­nel and Is­abella Man­ning of Belle Prop­erty – New Farm and is for sale for of­fers more than $3 mil­lion.

SUM­MER DE­LIGHT: The house at 219-221 La­trobe Tce, Padding­ton is great for en­ter­tain­ing friends.
