Set privately in walled, ornamental gardens, this superb, architect-designed home on the Malvern border is defined by a sun-drenched, flow-through floorplan of 40 squares that is purpose-built for impressive entertaining and extended family living with massive room sizes and indulgent accommodation.
Clever design has created a series of interconnecting, north-facing living rooms, each with garden access and all flowing seamlessly through to an alfresco loggia with a balcony and cafe-style awnings for year-round enjoyment. A central kitchen, well-equipped for entertaining and custom-designed by a catering professional, has a choice of striking granite serveries, a vast central granite island bench, elegant ivory Emporite cabinetry and thoughtful inclusions such as a walk-in pantry and a separate, fitted storeroom with potential as a butler’s pantry.
Bedroom accommodation is generous and well-appointed with 3 main-sized bedrooms, including a separate front bedroom used successfully as both guest accommodation and an enormous home office. Zoned privately to the rear, the main bedroom incorporates extra-deep walk-in robes, a very large marble-tiled spa ensuite and ceiling-height glazing opening to a private balcony.
Sophisticated with practical inclusions and in-built versatility that give it enduring appeal for families at all stages, this home also includes a lower level home studio, gym or teen retreat with independent access to the double carport and double garage, each with rear laneway access, and a substantial ‘man cave’ with a fitted workshop and extensive, fitted underhouse storage with untapped potential. Well-appointed, it includes ducted heating, cooling and vacuum, polished hardwood floors, monitored alarm, home theatre, 2 plumbed gas barbecues, computerised home automation system, water tanks, guest powder room, quality soft furnishings and customised window treatments.
In a very well-regarded street with easy access to cafes, leading primary and private schools, transport choices including trams, trains and CityLink and upmarket shopping precincts at Malvern Central, High Street Armadale, Toorak Village or Glenferrie Road. Within a short walk from parks and playgrounds in Central Park or Malvern Gardens and close to Gardiners Creek cycling paths to the CBD, this stylish executive home offers extensive entertaining and expansive family living in a totally private and secure setting.
