If there are lessons to be learned in every renovation and every build then it certainly shows in the attention to detail that has been given to every aspect of this brand new architect and interior designed 4 bedroom family home. From the handmade porcelain pendant lights in the bedrooms and bathrooms or the complementary tones of the colour scheme to the drying cupboard in the laundry or the secure storage available in the carport roof space, no element has been left to chance, nothing is an afterthought. This is a home where everything has been considered and fits harmoniously within the overall design.
A soaring cathedral style ceiling only expands the already spacious dimensions of the main living and dining area where seasonal cycles of family life and entertaining are complemented by the ambience created by a Jetmaster gas fire and the ability to open the room onto a vast alfresco deck where a huge gum stands tall above the solar-heated pool. The home chef and entertainer will revel in the kitchen here which features a massive Calacatta marble island bench lit by handmade ceramic pendant lights, with top shelf Miele appliances including 2 pyrolytic ovens, induction cooktop, steam cooker and integrated dishwasher and coffee machine, all complemented by a butler's pantry with Vintec wine fridge.
Attention to detail is also on show in the first class marble tilework that is a feature in both the main bathroom with its freestanding stone bathtub which serves the 3 large bedrooms, all with built in robes, and the stunning ensuite to the master bedroom which is situated to the rear of the house overlooking the deck. The luxury of the ensuite with its dual vanity basins and dual rain style shower heads is matched by a deep his n' hers walk-in robe which is reached via a short corridor featuring a shoe rack wall. Design thoughtfulness also shows in a landscaped lightwell that manages to completely change the dynamics of the laundry space via a window wall that gives it a view to the adjacent study where a built-in desk and bench window seat create a welcoming workspace.
This superb home also features a large living room with bespoke shelving just inside the entrance, a smart and stylish powder room serving the main living space, ducted heating and air-conditioning plus underfloor heating in the bathrooms, 100% wool carpets and 100% linen curtains, engineered European Oak flooring, bespoke made handles, plantation shutters on the windows, Velux solar-powered and rain sensing opening skylights plus landscaped gardens with irrigation and lighting.
Ideally located just metres from High Street and the no. 48 tram, the property is close to local shopping, provides easy access to the Eastern Freeway, is zoned for Kew East Primary School and Kew High School and is within close proximity to some of Melbourne's leading independent schools.
