While we’re suckers for some quirky, retro charm… Transformations like these can truly take your breath away.
Originally built in the ’50s, this family home has been fastidiously updated – merging old and new into a sense of perennial luxury. As well as preserving Art Deco-inspired features, like the sliding leadlight doors and brick fireplace (as well as the Wandoo flooring), additions like elegant wainscoting, crown moulding and recessed ceilings create a sense of timelessness.
Although full of character charm, the home is also fittingly contemporary, with light-filled, open-plan areas suited for family living as well as entertaining. Perhaps the home’s most dramatic, contemporary transformation is in the stunning kitchen, which is kitted out with fully integrated Miele appliances, sumptuous timber veneer cabinetry and a spectacular Super White Dolomite island and counters – plus a scullery, of course.
The home’s three bathrooms are similarly dramatically transformed, with herringbone Italian porcelain tiles, plus a freestanding stone bath in the primary suite.
Outside, there’s plenty of room to relax and to entertain – with a patio perfect for barbecuing directly adjacent to the kitchen, as well as a verandah and alfresco seating area at either end of the home. (Plus, with that custom triple garage and room for eight cars on the driveway, you’ll have more than enough room for guests to park – or for your own collection!)
