Spectacular French provincial home set in manicured formal gardens with swimming pool promises an outstanding family lifestyle in this blue-chip Bayside location in the popular Were Street precinct.
Antique French timber and cast-iron double doors open to reveal interiors defined by sweeping polished ironbark floors, reconstituted granite, soaring ceilings, decorative cornices, and glorious garden or water outlooks from every angle.
Vistas over the pond and swimming pool are enhanced by two rare century-old Canary Island palms.
The home’s formal and informal living and dining domain are complimented by a ground floor suite with walk-in-wardrobe and granite finished en suite. At the end of the wide hallway the full-width informal living and dining zone opens through three pairs of French doors to a large outdoor terrace overlooking the garden and swimming pool.
The chef’s kitchen includes three Miele ovens and dishwasher, appliance cabinet and long stone benches overlooking the dining and living which boasts built-in bespoke joinery and glorious garden and pool views. Still downstairs, a very generous powder room and large laundry confirm the luxury of space and thoughtful design of this enviable family home.
A grand carpeted timber and wrought iron staircase leads to a very spacious upper level that includes a large living room or teenagers retreat.
Enjoying views through the treetops of the front garden and pond, the main suite includes a vestibule, private study or home office, walk-in wardrobe and generous ensuite with shower, bath set in granite and double vanity. Three more bedrooms include two that open to private balconies with garden views, while a granite-finished family bathroom and second ensuite complete the upstairs domain.
A grand contemporary classic, this residence also includes solar glazed windows, ducted heating, reverse cycle air conditioning, smart wiring, powder room, attic storage, salt-chlorinated 9 metre solar heated swimming pool, and five car basement garage with workshop. Brilliantly positioned close to a range of schools including Xavier College, Haileybury, St Leonards, as well as Were Street shopping and the beach.
