Tranquil Parkland Setting Ideal Family Home
This rare cul de sac location backs onto parkland and Kedron Brook, providing a peaceful green ambience that can never be built out. The original home was constructed in 1930 but has undergone a total renovation to create a spacious and practical family home with every appointment for contemporary living and entertaining. The high-set design places main living areas upstairs, opening onto a vast timber deck that overlooks the pool and parkland. Open plan living features a free-standing dividing wall with an integrated gas fireplace to warm both lounge and dining areas. The kitchen, opening fully to the al fresco entertaining deck, features Smeg cooking appliances, metallic-finish cabinetry and a custom range hood over the central island bench. Gleaming blackbutt floors flow from living areas through to the executive study, which includes custom-designed contemporary storage and horizontal slot windows overlooking the pool. On the lower level, the large family room opens to a second undercover outdoor dining area. At the rear of the house, both levels offer a retreat, the upper used as a library and the ground floor room as an art studio. Four of the five bedrooms have built-in robes, while the master suite includes a walk-in robe and private ensuite. An automated Dynalite system controls lighting and zoned ducted air conditioning monitors interior climate throughout.
