THE location was one of the things that attracted the owner to this stunning home.
“The first time I drove down Fortview Road I felt drawn to it,” she said.
“I loved the street, with the park on one side and golf course on the other.”
Along with her husband and their blended family of four, she has enjoyed living in the quiet, well-located cul-de-sac.
“We have two dogs so taking them walking around Bold Park is a favourite activity, and going for family walks on the golf course in the evenings had been a treat,” she said.
The two-storey home is on a 901sq m block and is just as appealing as the location.
The front has an elegant stone facade, while the soaring columns and sweeping stairs at the back are reminiscent of a southern American mansion.
Inside there are high ceilings, spacious rooms and dark chocolate stained American oak flooring.
The ground floor includes an office, with doors to the front garden and theatre room that opens to an alfresco area and an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area.
A central fireplace with Kimberley sandstone surround and twin gas fires sits between the dining and living areas and keeps these spaces cosy in the cooler months.
The striking kitchen can easily cater to the needs of a large family and includes a breakfast bar, stainless-steel appliances, ample storage and scullery.
The living room opens to the alfresco area on one side and a veranda looking over the pool, backyard and golf course on the other.
The dining room also has veranda access.
The owner said this area was “seriously peaceful” and her favourite place in the home.
It also has plenty of room if you like to entertain.
Upstairs the master suite is a wonderful sanctuary for parents and includes a bedroom and retreat that open to a balcony with views over the golf course, a walk-in robe and ensuite with bath.
There are four more bedrooms, two with balconies and views, and two bathrooms towards the front of the home.
Other features include a secure double garage with store/workshop and shower.
The owner said it was an ideal family home.
“This house has been great as the kids have had so much space; if they want to hang together they can, but there are three separate areas for them to go if they need their own space,” the owner said.
