But where to begin describing this wonderful abode?!
Once you step beyond the high, private, limestone block and picket fence you'll discover handsome cobblestones, gorgeous climbing roses, a pretty, cottage facade and deep, shady verandah, all ready to welcome you home at the end of your busy day.
The original part of the home, which dates back 100 years, boasts a high, central hallway and all the traditional features you'd expect to find, including leadlights, 3.3m high ornate ceilings, fireplaces (four in total), up to three queen sized bedrooms (or use one as a formal lounge) and of course warm polished floorboards.
A dazzling family bathroom with a terrazzo tiled floor is conveniently located to all three downstairs bedrooms and includes two separate vanity units, shower, clawfoot bath with relaxing leafy aspect and fireplace. A separate powder room provides convenience for both family and guests alike. The laundry, with its long stone benchtop and floor to ceiling cabinetry, will leave storage lovers weak at the knees.
That highly desired open plan kitchen/dining/living area with its attractive gas fireplace as a focal point, is located at the rear of home. Crowned by 3.5m ceilings it boasts two sets of french doors and copious timber framed windows that capture both the light, breeze and the brilliant views out to the rear pool and grounds.
The attractive and thoughtfully designed kitchen will impress the fussiest of cooks with its oversized island bench, cleverly integrated storage cupboards, quality appliances and those must have stone benchtops.
Tucked discretely upstairs is the main bedroom, study and library/retreat. Created to provide a haven away from a busy household, it affords space, views and light that instantly soothe the soul. The main bedroom is tucked behind double doors and there's a WIR plus ensuite bathroom with large spa, shower and marble topped vanity. A good sized study provides access to additional roof storage and the living room includes a wall of spectacular bespoke cabinetry ready to be filled with your precious books and collectibles.
But if there's a piece de resistance to this remarkable property it has to be the pool and gardens. Professionally landscaped and evoking a sense of Provence, you'll fall in love with its lush charms and myriad spaces to relax, unwind and entertain - what better way to spend a weekend than drinking a G&T by the waters edge, coffee under the fragrant frangipani's or red wine around a crackling fire.
Simply put, there aren't enough superlatives to describe this breathtaking home. Only with an inspection can you fully appreciate the warmth, charm and undeniably rare opportunity it presents.
