Standing at the front gate and looking across the landscaped garden to the beautiful leadlight features of the front entrance gives no indication of the contemporary interior of this light-filled and beautifully presented 3 bedroom + study, 2 bathroom family home.
This exclusive home also offers a Boroondara Council Heritage Approved Permit for a Modern Two Storey Extension, Double Garage & Pool.
Central to this family friendly home is a floor plan that easily flows from the wide entrance foyer through a formal living/dining space to a light filled kitchen and then down to a generous family room which opens onto extensive decking at the rear. The overall effect is one of big open spaces perfect for entertaining or day-to-day family living with ample room for everyone. At the heart is the kitchen which easily accommodates informal family dining and features a 90cm Ilve oven, Smeg cooktop, island bench/breakfast bar, and ample storage.
The master bedroom which is off the entrance foyer at the front features built-in robes, an open fireplace and bench style window seat, while across the foyer is the study also with open fireplace and built in shelving and cabinets.
Muted tones of grey and white are used throughout and create a relaxed, peaceful feel to the house while the retained period features of leadlight, ceiling roses and open fireplaces add charm and character. Modern features include ducted heating and cooling, LED lighting, and a wood fired heater and air conditioning in the big family room at the rear which overlooks a substantial back yard. Access to the garage plus space for another car is via a right-of-way at the rear of the property.
Ideally located in a typically tree lined street and with a Council Approved Permit to extend with a second storey, this home is just off Wattle Valley Road and within minutes of Canterbury Station, Maling Road Village with its shops and cafes, and within easy walking distance of Canterbury Primary School, Strathcona Girls Grammar, Camberwell high School and other local schools.
