Peter and Eloise McMillan are proud to offer this elegant character family home with sparkling swimming pool in prestigious Hawthorn.
Crafted as a doctor’s residence with consulting room during the buoyant Inter-War period of the 1930’s, no expense was spared in creating the rare character and charm made famous in the Art Deco era, where the quality materials and workmanship utilised throughout have stood the ‘test of time’.
Standing proudly on a generous corner allotment of some 788 square metres (approximately) this much admired home is an icon in the suburb, with its attractive façade and mature gardens providing only a clue to the space, grace and beauty inside. Modern extensions and renovations have transformed it into an exciting haven for the active family.
Expanses of rich Jarrah timber grace the welcoming formal lounge room with adjoining study room with separate entrance (former doctor’s consulting room), and the formal dining room with original fireplace and window seat with original leadlight windows to enjoy the view into the garden.
Flexible accommodation is provided by three double bedrooms ( master with ensuite bathroom and walk-in robe) and two other bedrooms with built-in robes.
Teenagers, independent living family members (or paying lodgers) will truly appreciate the free-standing apartment with fourth bedroom (with robes), spacious bathroom, air conditioning and living room. This apartment works brilliantly as a pool house as well.
Centrally located overlooking the light-filled family room is a quality gourmet kitchen, graced with ample storage, granite benchtops, gas cooking and fully equipped with stainless steel cooking appliances.
Wide French doors integrate the family room with a covered entertaining area from where you can keep an eye on the children splashing in the sparkling in-ground swimming pool, while enjoying a relaxing weekend barbecue with friends and family.
