GRAND FAMILY ESTATESet on a sprawling 1,915m2 landholding, Taroona is a Peppermint Grove icon. Built in 1916 in the Queen Anne style with sweeping lawns, manicured gardens, shady wraparound verandahs and a romantic tower - this is truly an exceptional home like no other.
A recent major renovation and restoration has melded all the best features of the past with the conveniences and luxuries of today to provide a home of exceptional quality and convenience for the modern family. Set over three levels the home combines the old and the new effortlessly whilst providing different and unique spaces for the family and guests to enjoy. Grand formal reception rooms and dining room with a stately wood-carved fireplace and high ornate ceilings provide old world charm and grace.
The informal areas are full of light and space with full height French doors leading out to the verandahs and garden and pool areas. The expansive kitchen is modern with Italian blue granite countertops and all white cabinetry and is perfectly positioned in the heart of the home overlooking the informal areas and out to the gardens and heated pool beyond. Down a galleried hall two upsized bedrooms with walk in robes and each with its own ensuite occupy a separate kids/teens wing.
The lower level is like a separate home unto itself and could be used as guest accommodation or for multi-generational living. It could also act as the ultimate teens hangout with billiard room, separate sitting room with direct access to the garden and pool areas. Another bedroom with ensuite and WIR, laundry room and several storage rooms are also located on this level.
The master suite occupies the upper level and is private and sumptuous in its design and generously proportioned layout. A bespoke, hand-painted domed ceiling, dual dressing rooms, large modern bathroom and sitting room provide the ideal retreat.
This is a very special home for the discerning homeowner to enjoy making memories for many years to come just as its present owners have.
