Family Perfection

HOME OPEN CANCELLED – UNDER OFFER

Described by the present owner as “absolutely perfect for a family”, this home has been superbly restored and extended with imagination, style and a great deal of practical skill.

Built in the 1930’s and first extended in the 1980’s, 14 Bedford Street was completely transformed by a major renovation and extension in 2001. The original ceilings were meticulously restored, lead-light windows were reproduced where necessary and Oregon timber doors that had been hidden by paint were revealed in all their natural beauty. True to character, the hardy jarrah floorboards are in good condition and their glow adds rich colour to the entry and front rooms. These beautiful original boards have been perfectly matched in the newer areas of the house.

An east-facing courtyard is scented by jasmine and magnolia and a stand of ornamental pear trees follows the eastern boundary to a lush garden where the swimming pool is bordered by cottonwoods. Lawns, shrubs, peppermint gums and ferns provide a Vogue Living environment which offers a secure place for children to play within view of the house.

In the formal lounge, the windows, ceilings, fireplace and floors reflect the 1930s style, but the room is in no way old fashioned because most of one wall has been removed to reveal the adjacent dining room and courtyard. This master stroke adds a new contemporary dimension to the home.

The master bedroom is private, spacious and light with beautiful ceilings, jarrah floors, ensuite bathroom and dressing room.

The heart of the home is the family room. Generously proportioned and filled with light, this is the perfect place for the family to meet, discuss their day and relax together. The kitchen overlooks everything and is designed for maximum efficiency with as little effort as possible. All white with a phenomenal amount of storage, this area is given a touch of drama by a stunning Zulu granite benchtop.

The family room has continuous windows that display the beauty of the garden and pool and also opens onto wide, shady verandahs on the back and one side of the house.

North-facing and very well located, 14 Bedford Street is a triumph. The street faade and front rooms gently recall an earlier time, while intelligence, skill and unerring style have created a modern, supremely comfortable and quite irresistible family home.
