Best Offers By Tuesday 21st May By 2PM (USP)

Immerse yourself in the charm of this generational home, nestled in the heart of the exclusive suburb of Tusmore. Having been with the same family for 26 years, this 6-bedroom, 4-bathroom residence exudes warmth and character. Situated within a lush, green backdrop and showcasing a classic 1930s Tudor style exterior, this residence is a perfect blend of history and modern comfort.

With the assistance of local interior designer Trish Pickering, this residence has recently undergone a remarkable transformation, adding exquisite finishing touches to its already stunning character. Meticulous attention to detail has been employed to harmonise with the original features and ambiance of this exceptional family abode. Offering plentiful accommodation, a swimming pool, separate two-storey guest house and perfectly manicured gardens, this property is an opportunity not to be overlooked.

Boasting an impressive frontage of approximately 22.86m, this residence perfectly highlights its distinctive Tudor characteristics with intricate brickwork exterior, steeply pitched gable roofs and a decorative timber façade. Approaching the property, you’ll admire the home’s classic asymmetrical façade, complemented by a bay window on one side; perfectly accentuating the home’s signature attributes. Lead-light windows with their traditional diamond-shaped patterns amplify the home’s red brick exterior. Featuring an elaborate arched entry, intricately carved pillars and a spacious verandah you are guided towards the property’s primary entrance.

The home’s initial design has been intentionally maintained, safeguarding the spacious, flexible, and usable nature of the interior. Having been renovated in 2011 and 2022, grand original elements such as coffered ceilings, Jarrah timber floorboards, and ornate fireplaces have been preserved to uphold its captivating charm.

Upon first sight, the grand entrance showcases character-laden aspects that invite you into a stunning world of elegance and sophistication. Through the enchanting front door, under the glamorous chandeliers and beyond the interior glass French doors is a generously sized formal lounge. Conveniently positioned adjacent to the entrance, this space boasts an inviting open fireplace, traditional coffered ceilings, and a picturesque view of the immaculately tended garden. Sitting alongside lies a spacious formal dining area also offering romantic views of the lush garden.

Suitable for both formal entertaining and serene relaxation, the formal dining area and formal lounge room both seamlessly blend traditional elements with modern conveniences. Filtering through the plantation shutters, these formal living spaces are generously bathed in an abundance of natural sunlight fostering a welcoming warmth as you make your way through the entrance of the home.

Nearing the rear of the property, your gaze will effortlessly be captivated by the backyard oasis, visible beyond French doors and floor-to-ceiling windows of the breezy open-plan living area. Sunlight floods through generously, creating a tranquil atmosphere for laid-back activities such as simply unwinding with a book or glass of vino on your sofa or whipping up culinary delights for your friends and family in the kitchen designed and fit for a culinary enthusiast.

Endowed with European appliances, a butler’s pantry, and a central Carrara Marble stone island bench, this kitchen doesn’t just offer practicality. It also serves as a communal heart of the home, a perfect place for family gatherings, fostering warm memories that last a lifetime. Premium additions such as a custom QASAIR range-hood and an impressive ILVE gas cooktop and oven, equipped with an attached grill plate, are unique features that promise to inspire and spark a joy for culinary creativity.

Tucked away but conveniently positioned adjacent to the informal open-plan living space is a modern laundry room. Adorned with monochrome tessellated tiles and presenting built-in cabinets, lengthy bench space, a butler’s sink, and spaces suited for both a washer and dryer, this room facilitates easy organisation.

This prestigious property houses five bedrooms within the main residence, complemented by an extra bedroom in the secluded two-storey guest suite. Each bedroom is tactically placed near a bathroom, offering a resort-like ambiance.

Situated off the formal living area, the master bedroom flaunts stylish, vibrant wallpaper and is complete with an ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe, alongside additional floor-to-ceiling, wall to wall storage.
Serving as both a bedroom and personal study, the second bedroom elegantly displays a designer fireplace and a bespoke built-in desk within the home’s notable bay window. Neighbouring this, the third bedroom is complete with a built-in bookshelf and desk. Overlooking the flourishing front garden, this room is perfect for a serene home office.

Across the hallway is the modernised main bathroom, adorned with detailed marble herringbone floor tiles, a stand-alone bath and spacious frameless shower and comes complete with a separate washroom and sink, facilitating effortless everyday living and hospitality for your guests.

Two extra bedrooms, a bathroom and a retreat space found upstairs form a perfect discrete zone either for children or close friends and relatives. Original stained glass and the addition of electronic, remote controlled canvas blinds guarantees warmth and comfortability throughout the second level of home.

The secure double-storey guest house, equipped with its very own kitchenette and bathroom, not only serves as an ideal retreat for teenagers but is also perfect for sophisticated visitors seeking ultimate privacy. Newly painted and carpeted, the space ensures ultimate comfort. In the absence of guests, this space can be conveniently used as additional storage.

Landscapes originally designed by David Baptiste, the property is enclosed by neatly trimmed hedges and meticulously sculpted topiary trees. The home stands amid a stunning urban oasis comprised of attractive garden spaces and entertaining zones.

Entering through the wrought iron gates reveals a large lawn space, suitable for additional outdoor entertaining and a spacious driveway providing ample off-street parking with capacity to accommodate four or more vehicles.

At the back, alfresco entertaining is effortlessly enabled under the blend of natural and constructed shade. This includes the thoughtful addition of a large retractable awning, offering flexibility to enjoy the outdoors in comfort. Monitoring the kids in the solar heated, saltwater pool is made easy with a protective glass fence and permanent shade for those scorching summer days. Overlooking the verdant lawn is a permanent custom-made pizza oven – a standout feature that is sure to add a touch of excitement when hosting loved ones and friends.
