Striking in Gordon
You can't help noticing the vertical majesty of this home; it dominates the landscape, competing with native trees for attention and height. The backdrop of Kirkwood Crescent is practically rural in character with an added advantage of a park next door, which provided endless fun times for "when the children were young."
This home, described by the current owners as a "home for all seasons", enjoys a north facing living area where it enjoys endless sunshine in winter. In addition, the combination of the heated floors and the warmth of the wood fire result in an enviable winter comfort for relaxation and lifestyle.
Before entering the home, you see the decks, which, not only offer viewing platforms to relish the views, but additional space for relaxing or entertaining in privacy, regardless of the weather.
The home's four bedrooms, delight with their generous size and copious amount of storage. The timber country-style kitchen in its amber shade is complimented by a delightful family room, where again, the warm shades are echoed. The numerous and elegant windows provide light, allowing the seamless fusion of both areas. The bathrooms, especially the main, proudly display a claw foot bath, keeping with the home's heritage, which traces back to the Federation period; so emblematic of Australia's architectural heritage.
If the children are very young, their supervision will be easy as you can see them from the numerous windows. The splendid garden, the proximity to the river and Point Hut must be on everyone's Wish list, without a doubt.
The spa, the shade sails, evaporative cooling, are just a few features on offer. The additional space downstairs in the past has been utilised for teenage retreats. Here, you also find the third bathroom and an impressive workshop with more storage space. It is here, that the amount of storage available will surprise. There is space for a wine cellar as well as room for an office (with minor modifications), if you wish to work from home. If that is not enough, there is even further potential for a man cave, if you desire to escape occasionally. Access to the backyard is through side gates with room for a trailer under cover and water tank neatly tucked away from view.
The lovely neighbourhood with quality homes with no through traffic, provides easy access to shops and walking distance to schools.
This Federation style home will impress many.
