On arrival at 8 Flora Road you will feel a sense of excitement of what lies beyond the stylish timber electronic gates. The striking all-white exterior and coral pink front door make a bold first impression and set the scene for the stunning Palm Springs style makeover the home has undergone. Both the residence and its surrounds deliver that mid-century modern feel with a touch of glamor.
Inside the three-bedroom home, white walls and large windows create a light and breezy feel while the oak style floating floor and textured timber paneling in the kitchen allow a warm contrast. You will find playful splashes of colour and thoughtful finishes that are hallmarks of the Palm Springs vibe. Consider the stylish brass tapware and hardware, first sighted in the front master bedroom and stunning ensuite and continued seamlessly throughout. The updated kitchen incorporates a mint green benchtop contrasting beautifully with the large textured white wall tiles.
On a functional level, the home has a very workable floorplan. Sliding doors allow for the great separation of areas; ideal for family living. The master bedroom with ensuite and WIR is privately located at the front of the home as is the large lounge/living space. A sliding door from here leads to the kid's wing featuring two good sized bedrooms with BIRs. The family bathroom sits between these and is almost brand new with stunning terrazzo style floor tiles, bath and separate shower. A separate toilet and updated laundry with timber finishes, great storage and external access completes this zone.
The separate kitchen and dining area are well equipped for entertaining and family living with generous bench space, pantry, wall oven, gas cooking, dishwasher and breakfast bar. The dining area flows via sliding doors to a wide covered deck; the feature sixties style screening and fairy lights another thoughtful nod to the mid-century modern style and certainly create a great outdoor entertaining ambience. Opposite, a brick fire pit will be a gathering spot in the colder months and could accommodate a built in BBQ or pizza oven if so desired.
The manicured, secure rear yard with lush green grass will be a haven and play space for children and pets alike. There is also plenty of room for a pool.
Additional features include; slate tiles in the entrance and kitchen/dining area, gas wall heater, split system air conditioning, wide side driveway (offering ample off-street parking), double lock-up garage and rear garden shed.
The address positions you for a charmed Mount Martha lifestyle, moments from quality schools, Bentons Square and a short drive to Mornington's Main Street and the peninsula's gorgeous beaches. Enjoy family bike rides along the Dunns Road Reserve creek and explore a quality neighborhood dotted with greenspaces and playgrounds. This is a special one, well worth your time and attention.
