UNDER CONTRACTA leafy streetscape in central Heathmont is the enviable locale of this luxurious sanctuary, dedicated to exemplary family living and entertaining, as well as enjoying convenient access to prestigious educational institutions, boutique shops, thriving café culture and Heathmont Railway Station.
Set amid an inspiring Australian native garden that forms an intrinsic part of the overall design of this recently refurbished home, every detail throughout has been carefully curated to showcase a series of sophisticated spaces underpinned by lavish proportions.
From the moment you enter the grand scale portico lined with upcycled Tasmanian Oak timber from the home's original interior, it becomes immediately apparent that every care has been taken to produce a residence that is not only inviting, but inspiring at every turn.
There is a great sense of connectivity throughout the house with the highly functional floorplan placing the formal lounge at its centre. High ceilings, crisp white walls, Blackbutt floorboards and clerestory windows perfectly harmonise together creating a sophisticated and relaxed living area. A juxtaposed feature wall houses the gas log fire and TV recess providing an ideal space for the family to congregate together, not to mention the striking designer light fitting that will appeal to those who appreciate cutting edge design.
Sleek and highly functional, the spacious state-of-the-art kitchen places an emphasis on aesthetics, as well as providing a consummate cooking experience. The fully equipped butler's pantry maximises storage and preparation room, and features a sink and Miele dishwasher. Furthermore, the kitchen is fitted with an abundance of soft-close drawers and cupboards, in addition to Miele stainless steel appliances; two electric ovens, gas stovetop and Qasair extractor. The generous kitchen encourages family interaction when preparing a meal while the stone benchtops, glamourous mirror backsplash and pendant lighting meld together into one very sharp and elegant design.
The kitchen oversees the expansive and sundrenched open-plan family and dining area where a series of custom skylights create a superb interplay of light and space. Doors to the elegant outdoor entertaining area slide back for seamless merging of indoor/outdoor living, as does the kitchen servery bi-fold window – a boon when entertaining.
Versatility has been well accomplished with the inclusion of two master suites. The main bedroom with French doors providing private access to the rear yard also offers a luxurious walk-in robe fitted out with drawers and shelving – a luxury that is proportionately echoed in all wardrobes. The decadent ensuite showcases a step-in frameless rain shower with wall niche, stylish twin vanity with wall to wall stone finish, as well as on-trend large format Italian tiling.
The second master comprises a walk-in robe and full ensuite with a semi-frameless rain shower and the same care for exquisite top-level materials and finishes adopted throughout. This room also lends itself to be utilised as a home office, teen retreat or to accommodate multi-generational living with external access via a private and tranquil courtyard at the front of the home, which also offers peaceful sanctuary.
The remaining two bedrooms and study (optional 5th) contain triple built-in robes and share the main bathroom, successfully employing designer influences reflected from beginning to end.
