This wide-frontage, single level, three-to-four-bedroom home sits comfortably in the centre of an acre (4000m2) of magnificent and loved gardens full of roses, maples, camellias, Spring bulbs and established shrubs. Situated on a wide street with all-underground power, and amongst other beautifully kept homes and gardens within the prestigious Tudor Park Estate, its whisper-quiet location means only the rustle of autumn leaves and the birds' song will disturb you.
From the sweeping, paved driveway, and green lawn expanses, the pathway to the front door opens to a broad, tiled foyer. Timber and glass French doors reveal the formal lounge and dining area with gas log fire and wonderful bay windows.
Floor to ceiling windows continue in each room and allow views to every corner of the garden across the paved, wrap-around veranda which skirts the entire home and displays the colourful panorama of changing hues as each season passes.
Move through to a quality, timber kitchen with vaulted red-cedar ceiling and halogen down-lights, generous walk-in pantry, breakfast bar, gas cooking, updated Bosch appliances, instantaneous hot water and broad, double-sized fridge space. The adjacent family sitting and dining area leads out through sliding glass doors to a fantastic, all-weather glass pavilion, large enough for an eight-seat outdoor setting for long Sunday breakfasts or an undercover play area. Louvred-glass shutters and roller-blinds provide shelter for delicate pots and ferns, and to tame the summer sun.
The main bedroom has a unique parent retreat with bay window, perfect as a cosy, alternate parlour, nursery or spacious dressing room, and has ample built-in wardrobes and a huge ensuite with plantation shutters. Two more light-filled bedrooms also have large built-in 'robes, and a study, or fourth bedroom, has a substantial, built-in timber bookcase. The fully-tiled family bathroom also features plantation shutters which allow privacy without compromising the view.
An internal laundry and generous-sized hidden storage room lead off the central hallway.
Zoned, and recently installed Daikin cooling and central heating, along with the gas log fire, provide highly-efficient climate control throughout the home.
The deep, double garage with remote-controlled door has workshop space. At the foot of the garden stands an 18 sqm steel garage with veranda awning which could be used for trailers or garden machinery. As well, a smaller steel potting shed could provide a retreat or substantial cubby house. Three rainwater tanks with approximately 18,000 litres capacity with electric pumps service the garden.
The open and seamless boundaries of the property bring a sense of endless space. It backs onto historic Throsby Park which means there are no homes behind the back fence whilst clever hedges and timber railings create unexpected pockets and garden rooms, providing privacy and pretty hidden sitting areas throughout the garden.
A tranquil home for easy living.
