Mid-Century Modernist Marvel
This outstanding residence, stretching across approximately 1338sqm of entertainment excellence and family bliss, is a truly exceptional example of mid-century modern architecture - emphasizing easy everyday living whilst providing a striking backdrop for lavish parties and elegant entertaining. Almost like a movie set, it was in fact used as the home of Australian television royalty in the movie The King: The Story of Graham Kennedy.
Showcasing beautifully balanced architecture by Sol Sapir (built 1971), it features enormous space, gorgeous natural light and visual appeal from every angle, with an immediately attractive blend of timber, glass and exposed brick.
Enter via the stylish atrium and step up to a stunning entertainer's zone, with an effortless flow through an expansive lounge with bar, branching out to the dining room and billiards/games rooms. Outside, an extensive alfresco area comes with an inbuilt BBQ area and pizza oven, overlooking an inviting swimming pool, with the additional benefit of a pool house with bathroom. All this is surrounded by easy-care landscape gardens.
Built for large families who love to entertain, this beautiful home includes a large, updated modern kitchen with stone benchtops, oversized freestanding gas cooker, and ample soft-close cabinetry, overlooking a wonderful meals area that opens out to a balcony overlooking the garden and pool. Find a separate lounge room with balcony, ideal for everyday living, as well as a home office and substantial ground floor bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robes, plus side courtyard access.
Upstairs, family accommodations include a spacious master suite with walk-in robe, updated ensuite and its own private balcony; three more bedrooms with built-in robes with their own shared balcony, and a family bathroom. A host of clever design features include a well positioned laundry chute, ground floor powder room and cloakroom, extensive under house cellar and storage rooms (with direct access from the kitchen) alarm security, and ducted heating, as well as a double carport and circular drive. Just minutes to Heidelberg cafes and shopping, beautiful Banyule Flats Reserve is around the corner, plus it's just half an hour into the city. Within the coveted Viewbank College zone.
