A builder's own, meticulously crafted masterpiece, this visually striking and quality-rich, four bedroom family home exhibits a rare attention-to-detail while framing a private, backyard-like panorama across the pristine expanses of John August Reserve. Organised over two captivating levels and flexibly catering to the evolving needs of modern families, this is a well-designed and exclusive family residence in a blue-ribbon position near Whitehorse Road and an impressive selection of elite schools.
Spilling outdoors through two sets of concertina doors to a vast entertainers' deck with elevated parkland views, the open-plan dining / living is set under towering ceilings with European Oak flooring, all underpinned by a gourmet kitchen. With a keen eye for quality, the kitchen has been finished with vast, durable stone-topped working surfaces and a suite of Miele appliances, as well as a Butler's Pantry with a separate cooktop.
Offering an important diversity of living zones, the home also presents a more formal lounge with its own lavish connection to a second deck that is soothed by a calming water feature. Meanwhile, downstairs, entertainers will cherish a large rumpus room and home cinema that can readily be converted into a fifth bedroom or independent in-law accommodation with its own dedicated living area.
The master bedroom is an impressively large sanctuary with walk-in robes and a hotel-like ensuite in which a showpiece bathtub holds pride of place, while another two bedrooms share semi-ensuite access to a second bathroom. Importantly, the fourth bedroom can easily be used as a study / home office that is convenient to another powder room.
Set behind a superbly landscaped and irrigated front garden, this is a haven of rare style and sophistication securely accessed via video entry with an internally accessed double lock-up garage, ambient hydronic heating, reverse cycle air conditioning, a downstairs wine cellar, plantation shutters and direct access to John August Reserve to create the feel of a council-maintained private backyard.
Wander easily to all the cafes, dining, shopping and even a cinema at Balwyn Village on Whitehorse Rd, as well as Maling Rd cafes, plus you have city-bound trams, Chatham Railway Station and zoning for both Camberwell High School and Canterbury Girls Secondary College, plus you can enjoy easy access to an impressive selection of elite private schools that include Camberwell Grammar School, Camberwell Girls Grammar and Fintona Girls School.
