A grand old villa brings family luxury and entertaining excellence to one of the West's oldest and most progressive suburbs, a leafy wander to the train station and Woodville Road's emerging dining scene.
Commanding due admiration on a 660sqm (approx) corner block, this 1880's original has been meticulously restored and extended to meet every standard of modern luxury including side-by-side garaging with secure internal access, seamless indoor outdoor living and a rather gorgeous in-ground pool. Add easy-care charms to the list and, if ever there were a template for tailoring classic character to a twenty-first-century lifestyle, this is it!
The impressive additions follow the magnificent proportions of the original home - a glory box of carefully-conserved character headlined by polished boards, 14-foot ceilings, deep cornices and working fireplaces. Where the formal lounge recalls period elegance with swagged drapes and a fine marble mantel, and three larger bedrooms include that looked-for master with en-suite. With french doors at your beck and call, greet each new day with a dip in the pool, or simply enjoy some walled privacy while the household sleeps.
A study, playroom or guest room are just some of the clever possibilities that can be teased out of a fourth double bedroom at the rear, ideally connected to the family forum and a three-way bathroom that revels in spa bath luxury.
Revelry that continues down in the carpeted cellar with your very own gin bar and media retreat. And the surprises don't end there!
Back in the open-plan living areas, ceilings soar to previously unrecorded heights, a built in three way speaker system brings movies to life and a wall of bifolds merge family and alfresco spaces, as the perfect, sociable kitchen looks on.
Leaving you to plan the parties and many a barbecue with friends, serenading long summer days with that beautiful pool that sparkles ever more enticingly when lit at night.
Soak it all up, along with the peace, in an amenity-packed location prized for its centrality to both city and beach. Trains, buses, cafes, restaurants, cinemas, sporting facilities and the QEH all tick the walk-to' box in an area that also offers a great choice of schools including St Michael's College, Whitefriars, Woodville High and Kilkenny Primary.
Quite simply the best; don't deny yourself a slice of this enviable lifestyle.
