The impact of an architect led-renovation is evident throughout this handsomely balanced California Bungalow, c1923, transforming period pedigree to a family residence of outstanding present appeal. Originality signified by the beauty of its leadlight façade and soaring ceilings enriches two front bedrooms and formal lounge beyond which an open plan backdrop has been superbly enhanced and extended to meet modern needs. Sensationally spacious and capturing an abundance of light the living zone opens readily to lush, landscaped gardens bringing together the key elements for entertaining amid grassy proportions that are perfect for play. Stone benchtops, soft-close cabinets and a quality combination of AEG/ASKO appliances maximise efficiency in the generously sized kitchen. Central spa bathroom and the spacious ensuite master bedroom featuring walk-in robe achieve complete family comfort, additionally enhanced by reverse cycle ducted heating/cooling and an array of features that include 5MW solar panels, gas log fire, monitored home security, 5000L water tank, fully-integrated garden irrigation and off-street parking for up to four cars. Perfectly placed within a well-known lifestyle locale the immediacy of trams, schools, Highpoint and Edgewater Village shops, not to mention the Maribyrnong River and surrounding parklands, is matched only by the brilliance of doorstep views to the city skyline.
