38 Glengariff Drive,
Architectural icon. Open By AppointmentTucked away behind a canopy of mature trees lies this spectacularly renovated double-storey home on a spacious 1008sqm, designed by the late great Geoffrey Summerhayes.
This original 1970's-built home has been further enhanced by a thorough renovation to create the ultimate family home for today.
Set behind a secure pedestrian gate, a custom stained timber lined ceiling shelters the open stairway that leads past the double garage and to an impressive entrance of floor-to-ceiling glass.
Downstairs is home to one of two master suites and features a walk-in robe and ensuite, while two additional bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the bedroom wing.
Frameless glass balustrading to the stairway leads to a generous mezzanine adults retreat/home office space, and an adjoining powder room.
The upstairs master suite offers picturesque treetop views from the large, private balcony, and is finished with a galley-style walk-in robe and a luxurious ensuite with underfloor heating, a freestanding bathtub, his-and-hers rain shower, heated towel rails and double vanity.
Featuring the same sustainably sourced timber veneer cabinetry as the master bathroom and wardrobe, the kitchen opens out to the casual lounge with a double-height ceiling and gas fireplace. Quality fittings and appliances include Italian-made Newform D-RECT tapware, an 8-burner stovetop with overhead tap for filling large pots, and a custom made root vegetable storage spot in the island bench. A large scullery provides an abundance of storage, an additional sink with pull-out tap, and the laundry.
A separate dining room flows through to a more formal lounge with fireplace and an adjacent study, all of which open out to a stunning north-facing conservatory. This versatile sun-filled room features marble flooring with granite inserts, plus custom made steel-framed windows, doors, and a retractable exterior blind to the ceiling window.
Outdoor entertaining is a breeze with a wood-burning fireplace and an undercover kitchen and dining space complete with a 5-burner barbeque. This opens out to a decked area with a deluxe spa and views of the front garden complete with four reticulated garden beds.
Additional standout features of this home include essastone benchtops throughout, Italian floor tiles and recycled glass mosaics, jarrah floors hand painted in lime wash, reverse cycle air conditioning throughout, commercial-grade glass, and a whole-house water filtration system.
