Upon entry discover the exquisite character of original dark timber paneling in a traditional lounge room and dining room that are each completed with open fireplaces and superb leadlight windows, before the home flows towards its open-plan rear. Impressively proportioned, a stone-topped kitchen with a suite of Miele appliances is perfect for family entertaining, whilst two double doors and a set of concertina doors create seamless connection to a deck and sandstone-paved entertaining area with an outdoor kitchen, all oriented to draw the northern sun.
Taking your home entertaining to the next level, a full-size, north-south oriented tennis court sits adjacent to a gas-heated 20 metre heated lap pool, sauna and the spa. Meanwhile, a billiard room - with another set of concertina doors - promises hours of indoor fun and a separate gymnasium facilitates family fitness.
Upstairs, parents will relish the sanctuary of a master suite in which the fully-tiled ensuite's shower is independent to the bath, plus there are walk-in robes and a study nook. Also upstairs, and framing delightful leafy vistas, a trio of bedrooms each with built-in robes share easy access to a central bathroom that is tastefully themed to the ensuite, whilst a fifth (guest) bedroom downstairs also enjoys an ensuite and built-in robes. A large theatre room / library and indoor/outdoor sound system.
Thoughtful additions include a fourth bathroom to service outdoor living, a powder room, laundry, double garage and secure parking for another six vehicles, as well as gas ducted heating, split system air conditioning and solar power.
Directly opposite Ivanhoe Park, with Ivanhoe Golf Course, Chelmsworth Park and the Yarra River's trails all comfortably walkable, this is a brilliant location for outdoor recreation, as well as proximity to the shops and cafes of Ivanhoe East, great restaurants, shopping, city-bound trains from Ivanhoe Railway Station, bus to University of Melbourne, and terrific educational facilities including Ivanhoe Grammar School and Ivanhoe Girls Grammar.
