A Spectacular Home of Historical Significance
Steeped in local history, this bespoke Victorian masterpiece known as 'Corio', will take your breath away at every turn, from its stunning landscaped gardens and feature light fittings to its striking high ceilings and meticulous modern fixtures, it's a truly special residence that impresses from beginning to end.
A brilliant north-facing covered porch and original polished floorboards draw you in to this magnificent Hawthorn brick structure which manages to combine beautiful tradition with impeccable finishes and contemporary tones.
Built in the 1800s and lovingly restored by the current owners, a grand hallway provides access to all parts of a traditional, yet flowing floor plan.
Four large bedrooms lead off the wide, arched hallway, 3 have built-in robes, plus feature federation fireplaces. The master bedroom incorporates split-system air-conditioning and 2-way access to a sparkling modern bathroom with stone topped twin vanity and walk-in shower.
The stylish family bathroom has a vintage free-standing claw bath, marble topped vanity and a separate walk-in shower, while a convenient separate laundry has both outdoor access and connection to the separate toilet.
Forming the centre-piece of an incredible open plan living, dining and kitchen layout, the spectacular high-end kitchen is a place the entire family will enjoy spending time.
Incorporating stone benches, an Island bench and breakfast bar, stainless steel SMEG appliances and a unique triple pantry, it is one of many highlights throughout this conducive design and compliments an open dining room with a feature fireplace.
There's room for comfy couches, large TVs and a coffee table in the bright living area which enjoys an abundance of natural light and links cleverly to a picturesque courtyard.
Quietly tucked away off the living area, a winding staircase takes you up to an amazing mezzanine study/home office which positions itself as the ideal place for the kids to complete their homework or for doing your books of an evening.
With both open and covered seating/entertaining areas, established greenery and gated access to the front gardens the private outdoor space is a wonderful addition to an impeccable package.
In a property that has been superbly put together, historic leadlight windows, solar power, a ventilation system, reverse cycle heating/cooling, a water tank, single garage and a historical significance that can be found throughout local archives, are valued additions.
