A remarkable family home where impeccable style and exceptional quality are simply the standard, this Edwardian beauty (c1915) boasts an ultra-modern edge and truly raises the bar for elegant, sophisticated family living. A wonderful home to entertain in, with its centrepiece a glorious open-plan kitchen/meals and family living area with limestone fireplace, all opening to a stunning in-ground heated pool/spa and expansive backyard with ample space for even the largest celebrations. Enviably located in one of Melbourne's best private school precincts, this exquisite family home on approx. 1151sqm also features 5 large bedrooms plus study, 4.5 bathrooms, a large separate formal lounge and incorporates stunning period features including beautiful bay windows, ornate fireplaces and 3.5m ceilings. The luxurious master bedroom is a sanctuary in itself, with a large ensuite and custom walk-in robe that must be seen to be believed. Four generous bedrooms, featuring built-in desks and all with built-in robes, and a study complete the internal living spaces, while the rear guesthouse/cabana offers an idyllic retreat with its own bathroom, reverse cycle heating/cooling and storage shed. The well-appointed kitchen has a myriad of premium features including dual granite and stainless steel benchtops, a commercial-sized oven and range with indoor bbq and a butler's pantry. Striking French Oak floors grace the living areas and hallways while other features include high skirting boards, plantation shutters, hydronic heating, evaporative cooling, ducted vacuum, a plethora of clever storage options, huge attic, and a large laundry with drying cupboard. Offering a double carport with remote access and just a short walk to local schools, Cotham Rd and High St trams, and lovely Victoria Park, homes of such sophistication and quality certainly do not come along every day.
