Originally built as a solid brick duplex circa 1880, this stunning heritage home has undergone a number of renovations in its time. Possibly the first, and most obvious, was in 1910 when the front facade was altered from Victorian terrace to the current Edwardian style.
Most recently, a new roof was added in 2013 followed by a major overhaul in 2014 when the lower level was completely transformed to bring it into the 21st century.
Behind the picket fence and welcoming rose arbour, a cottage garden full of sensory delights and manicured hedges border the path to the tiled front verandah.
Inside, the entry foyer features polished Baltic pine flooring, 3.5m decorative ceilings and lead light-glazed niche window. The formal lounge includes a feature box bay window, open fireplace and timber over mantle with matching fireplaces in bedrooms 2 ,3 and 4/office. A light-filled vestibule/study nook at the end of the hallway includes a fanlight and French doors opening to a balcony overlooking the rear garden.
Updated crisp, white bathroom with spa bath, walk-in shower, vanity and WC is located beside the master bedroom. Supremely serene, it boasts a full wall of robes and another wall of windows with full-length window seat and light-filtering plantation shutters.
A timber staircase descends from the hallway to the lower level where the 2014 renovation created a modern kitchen, dining and living area, new laundry and bathroom, revamped sitting/reading room at the foot of the stairs, walk-in store room and a flexible room currently serving as a wine cellar/tasting room.
The entertainer's kitchen boasts stainless steel benches, stone-topped waterfall island cabinet, Falcon Classic dual fuel range with 5-burner gas cooktop and double electric ovens, glass splash back, Miele dishwasher and ample cabinetry including pot drawers, appliance cupboard and pantry.
The dining area easily accommodates a large setting while the living area includes built-in cabinetry and opens through bifold doors to the garden creating an added sense of space and bringing the outside in.
Alongside the kitchen is the new laundry, second bathroom and French doors to a vine-draped alfresco area shaded by a fabulous pistachio tree.
A fully-fenced in-ground pool in the corner of the backyard is ready for summer while the garden shed with cellar takes care of tools and the auto garage with attached workshop is accessed by a shared driveway off Wright Street.
