“HOLLYWOOD” ON NORTH
It’s a slice of Hollywood on North Road, two gates, circular drive, a mansion of classic contemporary style.
Step inside and the show begins.
Floor to ceiling windows throughout create a home bathed in light.
The entrance hall has a soaring ceiling, handsome staircase, and travertine floor. The design clean lines, 50’s inspired by George Dome. Think LA, think Frank Sinatra, think, this is FABULOUS.
The formal entertaining with outlook to the pool has a marble open fire stretching the width of the room. Floor is of dark timber, walls white, options for this large space unlimited. Lounge, dinner party, entertain or just chill. A powder room and cloakroom are adjacent.
Sequestered in the corner, a door leads to a large study, secluded and private, with built in cabinetry and window wall to an enclosed garden.
The kitchen is large, functional and beautiful. Thick marble tops, central bench, the best of appliances and well thought out and expansive cabinetry. It all makes cooking a joy, and the living easy. Extensive laundry/utility leads off this space.
Adjacent is the second living zone. Again the ceiling soars, airy and spacious sandwiched between pool and garden outlooks. The windows rise to meet the eight metre ceilings. Large dining zone leads to a family/lounge area with TV. Kick back, rest and repose.
A corridor leads to a separate self-contained large studio space. Currently a gym and sitting room. It has open fireplace, storage, garden outlook, ensuite bathroom and total privacy. Possibilities abound, home theatre, guest quarters, kids zone or gym.
Up the sweeping staircase, the show continues. The master bedroom is enormous with massive balcony, walk in expansive dressing room and large marble ensuite, all fit for a star.
A gallery of doors and openings off the long hallway accommodate the rest of the cast, 3 double bedrooms all with built in robes and intercom. There is a central bathroom, separate first floor study area and huge balcony. A large laundry room with ample storage is on this level. At the end of the hallway there is a second staircase offering first floor access from the rear from the property
Gardens, that pool and the rest.
Landscaped gardens literally surround the property, mature trees, beautiful shrubs, herb garden, stunning pool, auto chlorinated and set in sandstone.
The outdoor entertaining is substantial, “pool side�? its ready for a party. “Fernery side�?, draped in green sits the barbeque, concealed at the rear a “private garden�? retreat & from the study a private bougainvillea filled “paved courtyard�? of colour.
There is reverse cycle ducted heating and cooling throughout. The garage with automated door has direct internal access to the house. It easily accommodates two large vehicles and offers considerable storage.
This is a piece of LA in Melbourne. Positioned within 2 minutes walk of Brighton beach, “Hollywood�? offers privacy, sophistication, style and fun. It is a solid, sizable beauty of a property, and behind its walls a luxury lifestyle beckons. One any movie star, starlet, leading man or extra would simply love.
