Award-winning architect Rob McGauran created this home where every room and passageway offers different views and perspectives. Light-filled and generously proportioned spaces lend themselves to a multiplicity of uses in this elegant split level town residence. The whole is unified by a central courtyard bringing a feeling of space and light with full-length windows, topiary plantings and a water feature. A private rear garden with mature trees and aged arbour provides a contrasting view to the rear from the kitchen and living areas.
From the street, the house promises character and charm with a leafy garden and classic facade. Inside there is a feeling of tranquillity and openness looking out to the three garden areas. A generous entryway opens directly onto a study and a sitting room overlooking the courtyard, while a glass sided passageway takes you past the courtyard, powder room and concealed laundry. It leads to a smart granite, timber and euro stainless steel kitchen cleverly elevated to integrate with a family dining and living area and sharing views to the courtyard and the rear garden. Three bedrooms upstairs have vaulted ceilings with BIRs, master with ensuite plus a family bathroom. Other features include plantation shutters, ducted heating, split-system R/C air conditioners, security system plus ample storage, gas mains barbeque, remote garage, tandem off-street parking and rear lane access if desired.
This stylish home is enviably situated on the original View Street/Grange Avenue Estate in the coveted Golden Mile precinct; close to Whitehorse and Maling Road shops and cafes, the cinemas plus many of Melbourne's finest schools, parklands and public transport options - all of which enhances the lifestyle appeal of this prestigious location.
