A Seamless Meld of Traditional Charm And Contemporary FlairThis beautiful Californian Bungalow boasts a seamless fusion of timeless elegance and contemporary luxury. The traditional façade, framed by a large verandah, has all the appeal you’d expect to find, and this is continued throughout the immaculate interior. High ceilings with deep cornices, high skirtings, timber floors and sash windows are prevalent within the original rooms, whilst a more modern approach has been applied in the breathtaking space at the rear.
Generously proportioned, the home offers 4 robed bedrooms. The master enjoys a sizeable walk-in robe plus a deluxe ensuite with modern appointments whilst the remaining bedrooms share the use of an attractive family bathroom with floor to ceiling tiling and a deep bath. A light filled study is centrally located within this zone. The clever design offers a level of privacy with half height walls and feature timber posts that create a modern look, and a dedicated place that is suitable for work, study or simply enjoying some well-earned down time.
Adding further appeal are the home’s 2 living rooms. Located at the front, there’s a formal lounge with a cast iron open fireplace, providing refuge and warmth in the cooler months. At the rear, you step down to an expansive zone where large banks of floor to ceiling glass allow stunning vistas to the lush greenery that borders a spacious backyard with soft grass and an open air paved patio. There is also a section of artificial turf which makes a great playspace for the young, or young at heart.
The open plan section houses a striking entertainer’s kitchen with high-end appointments, plus a walk-in pantry with an abundance of storage options. Contrasting cabinets are complemented by deep stone benchtops, and quality appliances by ASKO and AEG will please the gourmet chefs amongst us. A huge central island bench is the ideal place for casual mealtimes, or a social place to chat to family and friends as you prepare a meal. In front of this is an extensive dining area where an eye-catching pendant light takes pride of place, defining the space perfectly, whilst to the side, a casual living room adds another dimension for those seeking solace from the hectic pace of everyday life.
Floor to ceiling stacker doors open to a substantial alfresco deck, allowing the indoor/outdoor living spaces to meld without fault to create a superb option for entertaining on an intimate or grand scale.
The list of extras is long and impressive, and includes such things as gas ducted heating, evaporative cooling, timber flooring and quality carpets, built-in cabinets in the living and dining room, a fully fitted laundry with excellent storage and an adjoining powder room, a neutral colour scheme, exposed aggregate driveway and paths, a water tank, a double carport, plus a large storage room accessible from the front of the residence.
The address, in a highly sought locale, adds to the appeal. You’re close to schools and educational facilities including Box Hill High School to which you’re zoned, Roberts McCubbin Primary School, Kingswood College, Mount Scopus Memorial College and Deakin University. It’s a short walk to trains, buses and trams which are all centrally located within Box Hill’s transport hub, plus you’re in close proximity to a number of popular shopping precincts, restaurants and cafés, many of which can be found in Box Hills central district.
