Steeped in history this magnificent heritage home with near-original exterior will inspire even the most discerning of buyers. A former doctor's residence dating back to 1922 'Roma' is sprawled over a rare 1176sqm (approx.) dual-access block in the heart of Mornington boasting mesmerizing bay views and sparkling inground spa pool, a magical retreat from the outside world with distinctive architectural form and detailing.
Beyond the arched porch and double entry doors lie interiors showcasing the impeccable style and craftmanship of yesteryear, a collection of period features including classic wainscoting & panelling, sash windows, original brick chimneys and mantelpieces, custom-built timber joinery and high ceilings.
A tiled entrance foyer with chandelier welcomes you to an elegant, carpeted formal lounge with original brick fireplace, flowing through to a dining room, casual meals area and central timber kitchen with walk-in pantry, Westinghouse dishwasher and Neff appliances. This living zone connects with ease to an inviting veranda overlooking the pool and picture-perfect northwest facing gardens; sit back and enjoy refreshing breezes and warm summer evenings.
For the cooler months retreat to the grand family/entertaining room with built-in bar and ambient gas log fireplace, adorned with traditional finishes and the perfect setting to celebrate life's special occasions or simply warm your toes by the fireplace with a glass of red.
Upstairs three generously proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom branch off a spacious landing with study nook, the master with walk-in robe, ensuite and private balcony with breathtaking bay views. A large 4th bedroom lies downstairs with walk-in robe and adjacent bathroom with claw foot bath.
Shaded by mature flowering cherry & gum trees the established front gardens are enchanting, while to the rear a large gas heated inground pool with spa enjoys a picturesque setting amongst the roses, fig and citrus trees with a relaxing poolside rotunda.
