Besides having a great address and expansive views, this home's flexible design opens opportunities when family members, who want independence, can still enjoy that experience under one roof.
Large or extended families or home office workers, will find this two-storey home meets their needs with over 220M2 of floor space. There are three distinct areas within the home: the first floor with 3 bedrooms and open plan living areas, the downstairs with a main bedroom or large office and the separate rumpus, large storage, garage, wine cellar and workshop.
This home reflects a carefree lifestyle with the decor a mix of bright and welcoming colours throughout. The main open living areas include the family, lounge and dining rooms on the first floor with panoramic views across to Black Mountain and the Arboretum. The gleaming solid timber parquetry floors are a desirable attraction, as are the wrought iron details found around the interior of the home. This Mediterranean touch includes the main stairwell that leads down to the multi function suite, where the rumpus room with a bathroom, storage room, garage, storage and wine cellar are also located.
The original main bedroom on the first floor is spacious and as are the other two large bedrooms, all with built-in robes. There is one bathroom on this level and two others on the ground floor. The kitchen is designed and located to involve everyone in meals preparation with an adjacent large walk-in pantry.
The large downstairs area of approximately 50M2 forms a guest's suite and office and includes a bathroom. This area has suited many needs as they have varied over the years and the current owners have used this spacious area as a private main bedroom and lately, as a home office. There is an adjacent rumpus area with a separate entrance which has served as a teenager's retreat, an office, a craft room and a music room. This rumpus also has a bathroom and facilities.
This home is of double brick construction with a formal circular drive, framed by a mature hedge, provides ample off-street parking. A side entertaining area is great for parties or dinners. The rear grounds have been prepared for a deck or terrace and further landscaping endeavours. These are yet to be constructed but these private rear grounds were recently enclosed by secure fencing.
The highly desirable location is close to the Parliamentry Triangle and the CBD. Deakin is well served by private and public schools and hospitals.
