CLASSIC FAMILY HOME WITH ARCHITECTURAL FLAIRThe 100 year old oak tree was the deciding factor when this home was originally purchased. The current owners fell in love with the classic 1930's bungalow that had enormous potential to renovate and extend, but it was the amazing established gardens surrounding the majestic tree that clinched the deal.
They utilized the services of Architect Matt Klopper, and the result was a gutsy modern renovation that merged period charm with cutting edge modern living.
The street frontage is elegant and modest and Rene Road is a quiet street with a lovely residential feel to it. Nonetheless, it is a short walk to the local shops, bakery and casual restaurants, golf course and close to the local primary schools. It is also a stone's throw from common bus routes transporting children to schools on Stirling Hwy and in Mosman Park and Peppermint Grove.
The highlight has to be a capacious informal family area that is bordered by floor to ceiling high glass windows and doors. This creates a scenic outlook into green and vibrant established gardens.
The house is cool in summer because of the high ceilings, great insulation and cross venting possible with the louvres and windows. Additionally a large central fan in the informal living room seamlessly creates an outdoor breeze within the room itself rarely is the air conditioning used because of the natural ventilation.
The home is ideal for the larger family. The accommodation comprises five bedrooms, three bathrooms, powder room, study, and a choice of three living areas. This is truly a home that works for all ages, allowing all families member's space.
The master bedroom provides separation, and is a clever example of passive cooling. The tree's magnificent canopy, together with the motorized blinds, helps shade the house in summer. It truly is a treetop position.
