A Captivating Combination of Timeless Elegance and Contemporary Flair
With a long lasting love of beautiful period features, the current owners of this gracious family home have created a harmonious fusion of old and new. Deliberately hidden behind high perimeter walls, and neat green hedges, the intention is to take family and friends on a voyage of discovery.
Traditional elements such as stained timber floors, decorative ceiling roses, intricate fretwork, high ceilings and French doors sit comfortably within the now more moody, sophisticated interior. Little touches of excess including crystal chandeliers, plush carpet, quality custom made soft furnishings and designer door handles counter balance the strong period detailing.
Your glamorous master suite with access to the veranda and garden feels warm and inviting. Finished in striking charcoal and silver tones, the use of floor to ceiling tiles, quality fixtures and fittings, corian and glass bring a sense of luxury to the space.
With the trademark style delicately implemented in each of the remaining three bedrooms, history and innovative design share equal billing. Children's bedrooms with dressing or play rooms, complementary freestanding and built in robes, louver windows and French doors are in keeping with the requirements of today's modern family.
A cosy family living room and opulent bathroom with plenty of storage complete the impressive transformation of the original character home.
Assembled to provide a stimulus for the eye and the imagination, as well as to serve the functions of living, an outstanding contemporary addition now reveals itself. Designed to take advantage of its highly desirable northern and easterly aspects, the entire home, including the swimming pool and loggia, appears to float above the surrounding landscape.
Sleek kitchen appliances and ample bench space, combined with the built in outdoor kitchen and full length timber deck encourage family activities to spill from indoors to out. For larger gatherings the newly completed loggia and pizza oven will make entertaining a cinch.
Coordinated with the view, the elevated salt water swimming pool has a direct relationship with the open plan interior. Beautifully finished with granite tiles, outdoor hot and cold shower and glass balustrade, this is indeed outdoor living at its finest.
Sophisticated touches such as walls of glass, high ceilings, electric louvers, quality lighting and dark, wide timber flooring up the style stakes. A wonderful glass fireplace with granite hearth will warm the heart on many a cold winter's evening.
Designed in two parts, the grounds surrounding the residence have been fully landscaped including new turf, privacy plantings and irrigation. Moving away from the home the balance of the acreage is more carefree. Currently divided into yards and paddocks for horses, facilities include a round yard, post and rail fencing and an approval for two stables.

Ducted air conditioning, fans, screened and lockable windows, gas cylinders, 2500 ltr water tank and pump plumbed into toilets and laundry, electric gates, sensor lighting, fully fenced grounds, fenced vegetable garden and chicken coup, shed, Foxtel.
