2 Tern Grove,
Mount Eliza, VIC
Dual Living Under One RoofEnter another world when you step inside this beautifully renovated four bedroom (dual living opportunity) home, inspired by mid-century Japanese architecture.
The 942sqm (approx) property has been transformed throughout, with heart. The original touches range from authentic Japanese screens to double glazed picture windows framing outlooks to an edible garden and a Japanese-style courtyard deck.
The piece-de-resistance is a deluxe stone and stainless steel kitchen with a solid floating feature bench made from the same timber used in the Stokehouse rebuild, in St Kilda. This piece of Monterey Pine now takes pride of place at No. 2 Tern Grove, against a wall of glass overlooking a Japanese maple tree. Magic.
The layout includes 2 distinct 2-bedroom domains - a rear garden apartment and a front apartment - each with 2 bedrooms and a sleek bathroom plus living, dining, kitchen and secure off-street parking behind new automatic gates.
The Japanese-style garden apartment is wrapped in warm Victorian Ash. It graces the floors and architraves, the French doors in the master suite and the kitchen cabinetry, where it contrasts with sleek 40mm Caesarstone bench tops and Caesarstone splash backs and the full suite of stainless steel kitchen appliances.
Japanese screens adorn the master bedroom and ensuite and the French doors open onto a northerly-facing ModWood deck – the perfect spot to soak up the healing morning sun.
Other highlights in the garden apartment include a gas log fire and an exposed brick feature wall in the living room; a contemporary ensuite with subway tiles, a tilt and turn window, a floating timber vanity and a large frameless glass shower; a wall of built-in robes in the master bedroom
The front apartment offers a remote double garage with internal access, a wall of robes in the main bedroom and a fully renovated bathroom featuring a luxurious freestanding bath, a frameless glass shower and floor-to-ceiling tiles.
Discover a garden studio/laundry with separate entrance, zoned ducted heating and air-conditioning, split system air-conditioners in master bedroom and studio, 3 ModWood decks, a veggie garden, a rose garden and an orchard with lemon, orange, lime, apple, grapes and more.
This is a unique home with excellent potential to generate rental income or accommodate guests in self-contained style, in a leafy cul-de-sac near Peninsula Grammar.
