18 Mclauchlin Avenue,
Period Beauty with a Sun-Bathed Pool FocusGracious, spacious and so well-located, this is where period living meets poolside life. Extended from a solid-brick base to offer a grand pool-focused three bedroom, 2.5 bathroom floorplan, this substantial Californian Bungalow expands on a traditional dual zone design with separate formal lounge and dining rooms (either one easily transformed as a fourth bedroom) and a light-filled family zone with views through invisible glass-fencing to a sun-bathed north-facing pool.
Easily adapted to today's family life with a spectacular poolside master-wing (with walk-in-robe and luxe bathroom) plus a second suite with a private ensuite, this impeccably presented home features a timeless timber kitchen with prestige appliances (including Bosch dishwasher), stylish bathrooms (both with frameless screening) and generous storage including robes and bespoke home-office cabinetry & wine store. Centrally heated with reverse-cycle air-conditioning, ceiling fans and sun-catching skylights, this fine home retains rich period detail (including impressive fireplace mantles, high strapped ceilings and warm timberwork) against a backdrop of window-walled plantation-shuttered contemporary living.
Set in beautifully established garden surrounds with water tank & carport parking to the front and solar heated pool and spa in north sun to the rear, large storage shed/workshop, this is the perfect blend of yesterday's grace and today's versatile space ...with a blue-chip "Poets' Corner" address, just 200m from Firbank and BGS Sandringham House and a walk to the shopping village, station and bay.
