Located opposite the start of the Golden Mile, on the corner of Higinbotham Street, this house of impeccable taste and abundant appeal throughout, right from the stunning front antique doors imported from Argentina you know you're in for something special. The entrance foyer illuminated by a classical chandelier has exquisite blackbutt flooring that stretches to spellbinding effect throughout most of the ground floor. The graceful formal living and dining room with gas log fire has a bank of French doors opening to the garden. Starring the blackbutt flooring, the informal living and meals room is magnificent - spacious, comfortable, welcoming, it includes a superior kitchen with stone benches, cherrywood cabinetry, wine storage, walk-in pantry, massive gas fireplace and an outlook to the charming atrium-style private courtyard where alfresco entertaining is a pleasure.
Also on the ground floor is the guests' bedroom/study with WIR and next-door bathroom. Upstairs, the palatial master bedroom comes with fitted WIR, ensuite with spa bath, and a wide balcony. The further three bedrooms are queen-size all with WIRs and are serviced by a family bathroom.
But it doesn't stop there: this is a tri-level home. The top-storey has a wonderful undercover outdoor area, perfect for capturing the bay views, admiring the sunsets, watching the yachts and impressing your friends. Video intercom entry, security alarm, ducted vacuum, reverse-cycle A/C, high ceilings, triple garage with direct house entry - yes, it's all here.
On a corner allotment with entry from Higinbotham Street, this outstanding property is beautifully situated for easy access to private schools, Bay and Church Streets, Brighton Yacht Club and all the delights of Bayside.
