Serenely situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and backing directly onto MacLeay Park, the sensational architecturally renovated and extended dimensions of this c1950's solid brick residence create an idyllic, stylish family retreat within walking distance to Balwyn High (across the park), shops and transport. Timber has been brilliantly used throughout to create a warm and inviting ambience beginning with the welcoming entrance hall boasting a striking sculptural staircase and continuing through to the cosy sitting room and adjacent dining both warmed by gas log fireplaces and the stunning 2 year old kitchen featuring solid timber soft-closing cabinetry, Smeg oven, marble bench-top and a butler's pantry/laundry. The expansive proportions of the family living and dining room, enhanced by vaulted ceilings, open to a stone entertaining terrace and north-east garden overlooking the park. Situated downstairs, the main bedroom (BIR & ensuite) and fitted study/4th bedroom are accompanied by two very large bright bedrooms and a chic designer bathroom upstairs. Features include panel heating, 3 car off street parking and a gate directly through to the park.
