An exceptional example of Victorian architecture, architect-renovated for today, this interior designer’s own home offers grand and gracious period living, designed to provide great family living above all else.
Extended from a solid-brick base with a beautifully integrated two-storey design by architect, John O’Loughlin, this notable up to five bedroom, three bathroom, triple zone home adapts to modern family life with an impeccable ground-floor master domain (including dressing-room and dual-vanity ensuite), first-floor kids quarters (with robe and desk fitted bedrooms plus a versatile lounge or fifth bedroom), and a ground-floor guest (or adult child’s) wing with a separate side-entry and private bathroom.
Living spaces are equally adaptable with French-doored formal rooms (one a library/home-office, the other lounge or dining with entertainers’ courtyard) plus an expansive family zone facing north over a glass-fenced pool, tree-shaded entertaining and broad lawns. Appointed to this designer-owner’s discerning specification with a state-of-the-art kitchen (with Jenn-air fridge, integrated Miele dishwasher and 4m island bench), the home showcases an expert eye for quality with solid Spotted Gum flooring, plush charcoal carpets, cool Stone Italia benchtops and bespoke cabinetry including robe, desk and shelving units.
Perhaps even more importantly, the home shows a professional eye for practicality by catering for every aspect of family life – from a multi-function kitchen utility area (encompassing butler’s pantry, parents’ workstation and catering area), a mud-room from the side-entry, and a large laundry with drying-cabinet and chute. Richly detailed with grand proportions (including 3.3m ceilings) and gracious features (including fine fireplaces), the home offers a wealth of contemporary comfort - with hydronic heating plus ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning, an alarm system, ducted vacuum, double glazing, 5000L tank and 20 solar-energy panels .
Even the approx. 988sqm combine timeless graces and today’s family spaces with an auto-irrigated formal landscape designed by William McGauran, and kids’ paradise gardens with a solar-heated tiled lap-length (15m) pool, broad lawns and a half-basketball court beside the easy-access double rear auto-garage.
Just four blocks from the bay and Brighton Beach station, this impressive Victorian residence has Hampton St’s café society and Church St’s retail therapy in reach, the central Brighton schools within minutes and Haileybury and St Leonards Colleges within a last minute 250m dash.
