Many original Victorian period features have been sourced or restored in this home, including tiled wrought iron fireplaces, ceiling roses, decorative cornices, iron lace work, and flooring. The black and white tessellated veranda tiles have been perfectly replicated.
Some of the contemporary features of the home include six handmade, Italian crystal chandeliers and plantation window shutters throughout.
The ground floor entry hall incorporates a sweeping staircase leading to three bedrooms, each with river, marina or mountain views. The ensuite and family bathroom are also on this level as well as access to a classic Victorian balcony from the central hallway.
On the lower level is a separate dining and adjacent living room with an open fire. On the other side of the entrance hall is the library room or fifth double bedroom, if required. Next to this is a guest bedroom with ensuite and kitchenette.
At the rear of the home is the new kitchen/family extension incorporating a European style laundry. Top quality appliances, fixtures and fittings have been installed. From here triple glazed bi-fold doors open onto a terrace.
There is also 100 square metres of undeveloped roof space for extra accommodation and is currently used for storage accessed by retractable stairs. A combination of heating systems include natural gas, electric panel heaters and an open fire heating, ensures the home always warm.
The surrounding grounds have been completely renewed and include mature box hedging, grassed areas and well-established screening trees and plants. There is also a studio/utility room with a bathroom and a small garden shed with plenty of storage.
