142 Smith Street, Thornbury, VIC, 3071
THOUGHTFUL AND SPECTACULAR AL FRESCO RENOVATION
An inspired, architect-designed, extension sees an open-plan kitchen / meals / living utilise towering vaulted ceilings and stunning north-facing windows to dramatic effect in creating a symphony of light and space. Equally dramatic, the kitchen contrasts volumes of white cabinetry with a timber-topped island bench, European appliances and striking black overhead cabinetry to provide a space that is both functional and attractive; the perfect place to gather for breakfast or a glass of wine. Two sets of full-height, glass sliding doors open to a north-facing deck that enjoys the occasional shelter of an automated retractable awning, creating a space for year-round enjoyment that overlooks a deep and drought-tolerant backyard. As it features established fruit trees and irrigated veggie patches, this a particularly versatile family garden.
The master bedroom is serviced by an ensuite and built-in robes. Indeed, all bedrooms have built-in robes in the thoughtful re-build of this classical home with polished hardwood floors, European hydronic heating, reverse cycle air conditioning, a full-sized laundry and the highly-coveted prize of front parking. Additional features in this fully re-stumped, re-wired, re-plumbed and re-plastered home include incredible insulation (including sub-floor) and double-glazed windows throughout. Every detail has been considered.
Delightfully nestled between the Merri Creek and St.Georges Rd, you have ample local parkland, great cafes and restaurants, plenty of shops, childcare, great schools (Northcote High zoned) and city-bound public transport all within glorious walking distance.
Beyond our expectations
