Ultra-modern luxury combined with timeless classic architecture, creates a winning way of life for busy professionals or families. Designed and built in the 1960s, this is solid dependable construction with a style reminiscent of the iconic architects of that era. These days it delivers a lifestyle for the new millennium, striking and elegant, incorporating an impressive and lengthy list of features, over 344 sqm set on 771 sqm of land. The kitchen, living and dining area spreads across the ground floor in a vast open plan space superbly sectioned with half walls adding interest and practicality. A shining granite kitchen extends along the east wall and is equipped to satisfy any chef. Three sets of doors open the entire north side of the home to sun and light, and carry on out to paved outdoor seating and a glorious private wooded garden. An electric awning provides shade when required and the combination of double glazing, underfloor heating and a gas fire will take good care of you over winter. With large double bedrooms partnered with gleaming tiled bathrooms both upstairs and down, there’s a flexibility of living that ensures a future-proofed home. Perhaps the piece de resistance for some will be the five car garaging and associated off street parking. This is a true bonus in a sometimes hectic suburb, so desirable and sought after. Just a few minutes’ walk from the many and diverse facilities that Merivale Village offers, this is a home to appeal to all ages at all stages. Wonderful schooling, both private and state, are readily accessible and our current owners have benefited from these during their 15 years here. Now the children have gone their own ways and a smaller property has already been purchased turning these owners into serious sellers calling for a definite sale!
