Ahead of its time when it was designed by architect Ted Karasinsky in 1964, this spectacular architectural icon has been brilliantly and sympathetically refurbished throughout with inspired designer flair to create a family domain that effortlessly responds to every modern family requirement with a unique and unforgettable sense of style.
On the cover of Home Beautiful in 1967, its designer transformation made the cover of Inside Out 48 years later. Superbly set behind lush gardens, the entrance hall featuring marble terrazzo introduces a stunning sun-drenched living room with a Phillipe Cheminees fireplace and an utterly captivating dining room housed within an evocative A-framed roofline boasting exposed Oregon timber beams and Castlemaine stone floors. Limed timber floors flow through the stunning Tasmanian Blackwood kitchen appointed with stone benches, 3 Miele ovens, a walk in pantry, home office and a light-filled family dining area. All the living spaces open to a glorious private central north-facing garden with large Castlemaine stone entertaining terrace beneath a Wisteria covered pergola. The serene main bedroom with ample robes overlooking the garden is accompanied by a designer bathroom with freestanding bath, two additional bedrooms with robes, 4th bedroom or study with robe, a second stylish bathroom and expansive rumpus room with original "stone-look" feature walls. The rumpus room opens through bi-fold doors to a covered stone verandah and the private leafy northeast garden with outdoor bathtub and separate studio.
Exclusively situated at the end of a coveted cul de sac close to Whitehorse Rd trams, Balwyn Village, Balwyn Park and excellent schools, it includes an alarm, C-bus, zoned audio wiring, laundry, large cellar, irrigation and internally accessed double carport.
