Immaculate fully landscaped garden surrounding the property

This beautifully maintained 1960s build has enjoyed just three owners and was designed by Melbourne architect and lecturer, Ann Taylor. Gracing the pages of a 1968 copy of Home Beautiful, the spacious and light-filled build has retained all its unique and character detail, whilst evolving to suit a 21st century lifestyle. An absolutely ideal family home, the property provides space and privacy for all and would suit a variety of ages and stages. The 100m driveway creates a striking welcome, and this leads down to a double carport and the front door.

Indoors, the formal entry leads into a light-filled open plan kitchen and dining space that overlooks the pool, spa and deck area. Hedging surrounds this outdoor zone providing privacy and security. Off the dining area is the main living room, a quiet room with open fireplace and doors out to an alfresco area. A hallway down one side of the home leads to the four bedrooms, all with built-in storage, and the master with an ensuite. The family bathroom is modern and bright, and a spacious laundry includes a powder room and access to the side garden. The sizeable backyard features a formal garden with pond and water feature, paved courtyard – ideal for entertaining – and steps up to a large lawn area. Tranquil and peaceful, this lovely garden is surrounded by a tall hedge and includes a number of established trees.
