Packed to the rafters – literally – with sophistication and elegance, this wonderful house has been revamped entirely to emerge as one with magnetism for all types of home-hunters. Professional couples and entertainers will value its classy looks and fab outdoor spaces; families will appreciate its layout and new park a stroll away; and younger retirees will adore the gardens and overall ambiance.

Right from the get-go, this is one impressive place. Architectural elements such as double-height pitched ceilings, graceful exposed joists painted white to match walls and ceilings, a mezzanine walkway where a dramatic picture window admits streams of easterly light, and high-end decor are an absolute treat.

The ground floor has a tiled study, with double garage access and could be a teen’s bedroom if needed – it neighbours a powder room. Under one of the soaring ceilings, a lounge-dining room has beautiful new woollen carpet and, as is true for every room, glorious garden vistas.

Beneath a trio of copper pendants, a massive mid-grey stone waterfall island bench – with white 2pac storage beneath – is the focal point of the well-planned streamlined kitchen. It also has two wall ovens (one steam), integrated convection microwave and coffee machine and a 900mm gas cooktop – each with Bosch tag.

At the top of carpeted stairs, there’s an open library/reading room with built-in shelving. Continuing down a hallway, there are two charming bedrooms each with mirrored robes, one with five opaque-glass skylights above the bedhead.

Also along here is a chic bathroom, fully Italian-tiled, with freestanding tub, bowl basin atop stone and a walk-in shower.

The main bedroom, at the end of the mezzanine walkway, under exposed
joists, has french-door access to a north-facing balcony taking in panoramic views towards Mt Macedon. A walk-in wardrobe behind mirrored doors and a sumptuous en suite with same styling as the larger bathroom are here, too.

Two covered decks, a French-style garden space and private terraced gardens of great beauty are fitting accompaniments to an envy-worthy property.

Practical stuff includes two split-system units, gas ducted heating, a 3.5kW solar system and a double carport.
