MAJESTIC, striking, magical – there are so many ways to describe this beautiful, historic home.
Built in 1917, over the years Bona Vista has been a family home, hospital, Bible college and a station for American soldiers.
It is again a wonderful family home, blending gorgeous period features with modern comforts.
The formal entry has stained glass windows and timber-panelled walls and leads through to the rest of the home.
The ground floor includes the huge formal living room and the formal dining room – you can entertain in style overlooking the leafy gardens.
The modern kitchen has French provincial-style cabinetry, granite benchtops, ample storage and high quality appliances.
It opens to a light, bright sun room, an ideal place for casual meals while enjoying the garden views.
Steps lead down to a temperature controlled, stone-walled cellar, a perfect place to store your wine collection.
Four large bedrooms are upstairs and they all open to the deep, wraparound balcony that takes in views of the city skyline and the Hills to the east. The landscaped gardens complement the majesty of the home and include a pond and fountain, lawns, established trees and a kitchen garden.
There is also a pool, two cabanas and an outdoor shower.
On a huge, elevated 1518sq m corner block, the home is close to the city and Beaufort Street.
