8 Keryn Close,
A majestic home, high in style, low in maintenance hidden in the slip lane off Canterbury Road.If you close your eyes and conjure a thought of your perfect family home, there's every likelihood that your vision of quintessential family living resembles that of 8 Keryn Close in Templestowe.
From the very outset, you're made aware of the meticulous detail and superior level of craftsmanship that's gone into creating one of Manningham's finest family homes; a home that clearly understands the requirements of an active family, as evidenced in its functional and practical floorplan designed with a focus on everyday living.
Custom double-glazed windows and custom cabinetry with Blum hardware throughout is a just a small sample of the home's no-expense-spared bespoke character, while a brilliant display of two living areas, zoned accommodation, basketball half court and two alfresco entertaining areas embracing the solar heated/saltwater chlorinated swimming pool in the private and spectacular north-facing backyard cements this home's status as the ultimate family playground.
Nestled amongst breathtaking Duane Rowe landscaped gardens in a prized top of the court location, the manner in which all living spaces interact physically and visually with the scenic exterior is a stroke of clever design, as is the successful separation between the private master bedroom (with abundant built-in storage space, fully-tiled ensuite and stunning garden outlook) and children's quarters at the very top of the floorplan, comprising two robed bedrooms and a modern family bathroom.
Engineered American Oak timber floors introduce a sunken lounge, which flows off the home's welcoming entrance and excites the senses with its garden aspect, gas log fireplace and integration with an alfresco deck with bench seating, built-in ceiling speakers and cocktails at dusk written all over it.
Venture into the heart of the home and discover a gourmet Miele kitchen that enjoys pride of place in the radiant open-plan living, and when you open the custom sliding doors, find yourself dining alfresco-style beneath a star-lit sky or completely undercover should you signal the motorised awning into action.
Feature-packed from front to back, this secure state-of-the-art sanctuary inside the Serpell Primary School and EDSC catchment area also boasts a video intercom, alarm, split-system heating/cooling, versatile study/fourth bedroom, deluxe laundry, views towards the Dandenong Ranges, generous off-street parking and convenient access to The Pines, parks, buses and the Eastern Freeway.
