Oakley and Parkes Classic set in the heart of the Garden City

Private serene setting and a home of timeless architecture, styling and proportion. An Oakley and Parkes residence that has been spaciously improved through the years. A beautifully open find on such a secluded and well-proportioned sanctuary of 1880 square metres (approx.). An elevated leafy section, with ideal northern aspect to the rear and a position within Forrest which can only be described as idyllic.

Nestled in behind the privacy of hedges, where mature magnolias are set next to rambling cottage rose gardens, the perfect lawn for children to play and a richly planted orchard, which is sure to fill your home with home grown produce year round.

An ornate hand carved oversized door opens into a generous tiled entry foyer and flows to a sunken formal lounge. Weathered chesterfields and a crackling fireplace have this room set as the most divine parents retreat. Large spaces and a modern layout with potential for further enhancement. With ideal natural light and potential to flow into brick paved terraces, the big family kitchen opens one side to a formal dining room and the other to a relaxed sun filled family room, currently also containing a home theater screen and projector.

Timber framed windows and glazed French doors feature throughout, with all bedrooms enjoying perfectly private garden views. A generous master suite with two bays of built in robes and modest but functional ensuite, plus two additional queen bedrooms and family bathroom.

Outstanding proportion, layout and styling that will appeal, yet incredible potential to add your own aesthetics to this stunning and rare find.
