It comprises a grand entry hall with a stately archway, three bedrooms, main opens to private grassed courtyard and boasts a sumptuous ensuite with separate shower and bath and double basin vanity; an elegant formal living and dining room with a marble surround open fireplace, a vast open plan living area with kitchen, meals and informal living spaces that opens to a wraparound courtyard garden through three sets of French Doors; custom-built home office/study; powder room and laundry. The kitchen showcases Miele appliances, granite benchtops and timber cabinetry. Highlights include high ceilings, ornate cornices, deep skirting boards, central heating, air conditioning and much more. Plus there are four car spaces, two of which are covered.
Wonderfully located, it’s within easy walking distance of the beach, leading schools, railway station, restaurants and the sophisticated Church Street and Bay Street shopping precincts.
