THIS is a rare opportunity to own your own manor home plus fully self-contained apartment on a 1191sq m landholding near the river.
The property has a long history, originally bought and built on by the owner’s parents in the 1960s and then passed down to the owners in 1984 who, with architect Timothy Morley, created this spacious family home and apartment for themselves, three children and a senior family member.
“When we built the house, internally it was in a modern ’80s style and so in 2009, we updated the home including moving and updating the kitchen to the west side with Miele appliances and finishes such as Caesarstone benches, soft-close draws and glass splashbacks,” they said.
The home exudes stately luxury and elegance, with a spectacular two-storey facade featuring a veranda and double-door entrance.
Inside, the double-height entry is flooded with light and opens to the front formal lounge room with slate feature fireplace to the right. The fifth bedroom is to the left, complete with its own ensuite, perfect for guests.
The rear of the lower level is home to the spectacular open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, which features a fantastic glass wall and ceiling allowing seamless views of the garden and sky.
The beautifully landscaped, private garden offers an enchanting setting for summer entertaining with the vine-draped pergola over the alfresco area and plenty of lawn for a trampoline, spontaneous cricket games and even a future pool.Upstairs, the master bedroom offers the perfect parent’s retreat with a walk-in robe and luxury ensuite with giant spa bath. There are three further bedrooms and a main bathroom.
The separate apartment on the block contains its own kitchen, dining, living, bedroom, walk-in robe and bathroom, built for an older relative but also great for an older child wanting their own space.
“The home is in close proximity to schools, great shopping, restaurants, sporting facilities, the river, the beach, parks and easy access to neighbouring suburbs. Along with wonderful neighbours, it has everything,” the owners said.
