Retaining all the elegance and allure of its Victorian origins, this period Hawthorne-brick showpiece has been extended and renovated to perfection delivering a family lifestyle of exceptional versatility, uncompromised quality and enviable city-fringe convenience. Beyond the landscaped front garden and grand triple-fronted facade, discover a meticulously detailed interior boasting an extra-large master bedroom with fully-fitted robes and deluxe ensuite, as well as three additional bedrooms (BIRs) and equally-opulent main bathroom. Flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows for an abundance of natural light, the spectacular open-plan living/dining area is further enhanced by a chef's kitchen including stone benchtops and island breakfast bar with built-in butcher's block, soft-close cabinetry, Ilve 900mm oven (with gas and induction cooktop), integrated dishwasher and large butler's pantry/laundry. Premium carpets, engineered-oak parquetry floors and impressively high ceilings throughout, the home also features a custom temperature-controlled wine wall, hydronic heating, zoned reverse-cycle ducted air conditioning and Jetmaster open fireplace to the living area. Step outside to enjoy the north-facing backyard oasis including entertaining area with pergola, additional decking, mains-connected BBQ, lush garden surrounds and high fences for privacy, plus the added appeal of a garage/studio (or home office) and driveway with remote-control gates. Moments from village shops, cafes and bars, it's also walking distance to Kensington and Macaulay stations (two stops to the CBD), local schools, riverside trails, JJ Holland Park and the new aquatic centre (under construction) as well as easy access to Citylink.
