Immerse yourself in the grandeur of 18 Rochester St Leabrook, a six-bedroom, three-bathroom home situated on 1,098 square metres (approx.) of private grounds and exuding timeless elegance amidst refined, easy-to-maintain gardens.

Crafted with precision and lovingly maintained for the last 33 years, this two-storey residence beautifully marries traditional heritage charm with modern functionality.

Designed with heart and an eye for detail, this home incorporates a sleek Alby Turner & Sons kitchen. Offering high-quality, integrated appliances and stylish glass kitchen cabinets, the kitchen is beautifully centred by a unique curved island breakfast bar, creating an inviting space for family and friends to gather around.

Supplementing this space is a wealth of bespoke built-in cabinetry and a substantial pantry, providing ample storage solutions.

A testament to comfort and practicality, striking floor-to-ceiling storage is offered throughout, while extensive linen cupboards line the hallway.

At the back of the property, hosting alfresco gatherings is a breeze, courtesy of a sheltered alfresco dining space set on stylish Travertine pavers. This inviting outdoor space serves as a tranquil setting for peaceful morning coffees or relaxed evening drinks, all whilst the kids have plentiful room for play.

Situated to the side of the property is a spacious solar-heated swimming pool which boasts an automatic water levelling system, perfect for both private relaxation and entertaining family and friends all while being easily maintained. Beside the expansive swimming pool is a lush lawn area, immaculately preserved, this area creates an inviting space for outside activities.
