A very nice house with a professionally constructed studio designed for post production; would suit composer too.
The whole house was renovated around 20 years ago by the seller. Care was taken to keep the original Edwardian style and features but also added a contemporary feel.
The paved driveway comfortably fits 3 vehicles.
There is a canopied porch to the front door which leads in to a generous sized hallway with high ceilings and oak wood floor.
The large main Reception Room has a tall front facing bay window with beautiful original style gas fireplace.
From the Dining Room there is a glass door which opens to a raised terrace made of hand-crafted decking and steps to the back garden, which has been landscaped in a Japanese style with large potted bamboo, raised areas (originally designed with a water feature in mind) and wonderful eucalyptus trees that enhance the view from the studio window at the top floor of the house.
There is an exquisite fireplace with fire fuelled by gas.
The Kitchen and Breakfast Room features a Figura designed hand crafted and fitted solid oak kitchen array upon Roman Travertine stone flooring.
The many unique and beautifully functional design features need to be seen and experienced to fully appreciate.
There is a bay area which currently accommodates a beautiful Norman Foster designed round table.
There is an Osmosis drinking water filter unit and a water softener unit fitted in the cellar (perfect for wine storage) under the kitchen.
The cellar is approximately 3.35 x 2 Metres. Under the rest of the ground floor there is an adequately sized ‘craw space’ perfect for speaker wiring etc.
Throughout the house all doors have been replaced with exact copes of the original doors made in hardwood and with new original design hardware.

The smallest bedroom is currently used as an office.
