"Gwalia" c1910 was renovated and extended with family living and entertaining at the forefront of planning - capitalising on a preferred northern rear aspect, the inclusion of a solar heated pool/spa and direct access to the leafy John August Reserve - extending its family games and recreation options. A classic Edwardian façade gives way to a brilliantly designed extension over three levels which capitalises on the abundant natural light delivered to its rear living and entertaining areas enhanced by the views of John August Reserve.
The refurbished interior is highlighted by zoned accommodation, subtle period attributes, shiny Baltic Pine floors and central hallway leading to a sitting room, study, formal dining room, period-style bathroom and separate laundry. Plus four bedrooms, downstairs main with WIR and ensuite; an upstairs retreat and a family bathroom. A brilliant family living, dining and entertaining domain incorporates well-equipped kitchen/meals with a large stone island bench and Euro appliances flowing to a rose-clad verandah and deep, hedge-lined garden with a quarter basketball court and lower-level cellar and games room. Other features include original OFPs, ducted heating, cooling & vacuum, R/C air conditioners, surround sound, roof storage, rain water tanks and a garage/workshop/storage & off-street parking.
The exceptional family home is further enhanced by its location on the fringe of the prestigious Golden Mile precinct in the leafy environs midway between Whitehorse and Maling Road shops, restaurants and cafes plus the Balwyn Cinema. Just a short stroll from public transport options and providing easy access to an array of Melbourne's finest schools - all underpinning the lifestyle benefits available with this home.
