SPACIOUS CHARACTER HOME

Steeped in history and tastefully transformed for today's discerning family, this 1930s two-storey character home is a testament to impeccable design and meticulous craftsmanship. Offering 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, formal and informal living, a light-filled open plan kitchen lounge and dining, the versatility of a loft, north side balconies and verandas, a huge north-facing backyard with lawn and glistening swimming pool, it boasts a striking elevation marked by a pronounced pitched roofline.

The home retains its vintage essence within its walls, with high decorative ceilings, ornate cornices, and enchanting leadlight doors and windows, paying homage to its inter-war era. The formal lounge, anchored by an elegant marble fireplace and accompanied by a handcrafted Jarrah bookcase, seamlessly transitions into a dining space that opens onto the patio - crafting a sublime setting for formal entertaining.

The contemporary renovated kitchen boasts a sweeping waterfall island, pristine stone surfaces, abundant storage, and 900mm cooking appliances. This culinary haven seamlessly flows into the sun-drenched, north-facing family living and meals space, accentuated by a prominent bay window and charming French doors. Adjacent lies a cosy media room, the perfect sanctuary for cinematic evenings or quiet reading.

The home's generous footprint extends further, accommodating a bathroom and an expansive utility zone with a dedicated study area, a laundry, and a butler's pantry.

Ascend to the living quarters, where you'll be enchanted by the split-level design. The landing offers access to a sizeable air-conditioned studio/loft, perfect for wellness, recreation or storage. Further up lies the crown jewel - a magnificent, sun-soaked main bedroom graced with a soaring vaulted ceiling, balcony access, and an elegant Travertine-tiled ensuite. The residence caters to guests and family with four additional spacious bedrooms, each thoughtfully positioned and serviced by well-appointed bathrooms. A versatile attic space completes this level, promising endless possibilities.

Externally, the residence gracefully unfolds as an inviting space for relaxation and entertainment. Large windows perfectly capture the subtle elegance of the cedar-lined alfresco area, which features an outdoor kitchen for effortless gatherings, large or small. The smooth travertine paving extends to the serene swimming pool, bordered by wrought iron and frameless glass fencing. The pool house, complete with a recessed cedar-lined ceiling, offers a quiet spot to unwind with its picturesque vista of the garden, pool, and the beautiful residence.

The home enjoys an unmatched locale and is nestled on an elevated 1057sqm block within the coveted Point Resolution enclave. A leisurely walk transports you to sporting and leisure amenities, esteemed schools, verdant riverside reserves and Dalkeith Village on Waratah Avenue.
