Bluestone beauty with bold architectural makeover…

Best offers by Monday April 22nd at 10am (unless sold prior)

A rare opportunity to acquire an historic return veranda bluestone villa with an exceptional architectural renovation and extension brimming with state-of-the-art technology

Situated on perhaps the finest treelined avenue of this highly sought after eastern city fringe enclave, this gracious residence was built for James Goodale in around 1901 and remained in his family for most of the 20th century. The current owners have collaborated with Flightpath architects to add a bold contemporary addition that ticks every box for 21st century family living.

With an eye-catching street presence, the house with its symmetrical façade and return veranda, sits upon glorious landscaped grounds designed by renowned garden designer Carolyn Dawes.
The front door, surrounded by some of the most magnificent painted stained glass you will find, opens to a long wide central hallway grounded by engineered oak boards that stretch past family accommodation towards the distant living extension.

The original rooms with soaring ceilings include a formal lounge with gas fire, and four bedrooms. The superb master is appointed with a walk-in dressing room and a hotel style ensuite complete with heated artisan tiled floors, heated towel rails, frosted glass entry shower and WC, and double vanities.
The family bathroom with tub has ingenious 2-way drawers into the laundry, so one never need worry about dirty clothes. The laundry with linen cupboards and drying rail is accessed via a mud room with built-in cabinetry and banquette seating that has direct carport access.

The monumental extension is a masterclass of design for comfortable family living. Soaring windows bathe the space in northerly light, whilst a gas fire provides winter warmth and a ceiling fan for extra comfort.
The kitchen with bespoke soft-close cabinetry, hosts a range of European appliances, and an island bench with a Caesarstone top around which to meet and eat.

Outside is a spectacular haven in which to relax or entertain.
Bifold doors open seamlessly to a deep entertaining deck that includes a place to lounge, a place to dine and a place to soak up the sun beside the pool. A lush hedged lawn provides the perfect place for play.
The top of the range fully tiled resort style pool with integrated spa sits at centre stage. Surrounded by a glass fence, it is solar and gas heated, illuminated at night, has an automated Infloor cleaning system, and an automated slide away hard shell cover. The pool equipment shed also has elevated storage.

This very special family home is not only impressive but beautiful and functional, with a coveted lifestyle position near to high end boutiques, cafes, schools, the CBD and Victoria Park.
