THIS is a home with presence, where the original owners’ love of France and Italy is evident throughout.
Dramatic and atmospheric, and set among tallow and olive trees and an abundance of climbing vines, the two-storey residence has the feel of a European villa with soft-weathered masonry, slate roof tiles and copper accents.
Inside, a grand entry with Spanish marble floor tiles opens to two formal living areas.
The lounge room has rough-rendered walls and customised french doors with metal shutters.
The dining room has a carved marble fireplace, views of the front garden and french doors to the courtyard – a divine space with a curved arbour covered in wisteria arching overhead, patinated pendant light, granite cobblestones and feature walls with inset arches and columns.
Also outside is a roman bath-like plunge pool.
As well as formal spaces, the ground floor includes a family/meals/kitchen area.
This room is a visual delight with Brazilian blue-tinged marble splashbacks and chocolate hued granite benchtops, mosaic tiles, inset stone work, carved and embellished timber features and a fireplace.
It is also very practical with four sink areas, multiple fridge spaces and extensive open shelving in the kitchen, food preparation area and scullery.
This space also opens to the courtyard.
A bedroom with built-in robes and desk is towards the back of the home with a bathroom and separate toilet.
There is also a utility room/laundry and gym/living area.
The spacious master bedroom is upstairs with a walk-in robe and ensuite with wandoo-lined ceiling and marble features, including a bath.
It will wow with huge glass-inset timber doors, river glimpses, treetop views, limed walls and distressed timber-lined ceiling.
A second bedroom on this floor also has a marble ensuite with doors to a Juliet balcony looking over the courtyard.
The magnificent home is on a 698sq m block with a secure double carport and just a short walk from the river.
