Prestigious living within your own private oasis
Set in the tightly-held streets of Kensington, this original 1860’s double fronted period style home offers a perfect blend of old style charm and modern luxury to an ideal family space where you can comfortably live and entertain into the future.
The first thing you notice when you step through the front door are the high ceilings giving a great sense of space. But the pleasant surprise is overtaken by the wide hallway which draws your eyes to the views of the rear open plan kitchen, living and outdoor area, designed as much for family living as for entertaining a crowd.
The kitchen is all you could imagine. The marble and white palette with touches of stainless steel add elegance to the list of features including sleek semi-gloss cabinetry, gas cook top and oven, dishwasher, island marble waterfall bench tops, integrated fridge, soft close drawers and ample pantry and storage space.
For family meal times there is dedicated dining area before you relax and enjoy time together in the generous rear living room… unless of course it is pool weather. The bi-folds from the dinning and kitchen areas open up the back of the house to an impressive outdoor entertaining area complete with sparkling inground swimming pool.
Simple yet elegant gardens. An assortment of potted citrus trees and terracotta paving surround the Tuscan-style courtyard creating a calm oasis. Having this beautiful exterior space in your own backyard is like having your own private spa resort at home.
The second floor is dedicated to a parents retreat of palatial proportions and includes everything you would expect from a home of this calibre. The lavish master ensuite has warm soft tones and tactile materials with large format tiles, double vanity, oversized walk-in shower and separate bath tub. This space is flooded with natural light and leads out to a balcony overlooking the pool and courtyard.
Back downstairs, the 3 king-sized bedrooms with built in cabinetry, two with access to ensuites, have been designed to accommodate a family throughout their growing years. The neutral colour scheme is current but will last the test of time.
The sitting room retains its original fireplace and ceiling detail and is well positioned to be converted into a functional office space for those working from home.
