This mid-20th century country home was designed and built to nestle into the centre of 1,757m2 (nearly half an acre) of garden paradise. After undergoing careful refurbishment and restoration by its current owner – Christine Little (know nationally for her interior and landscape career) is now available for sale.
The design affords for the large picture windows to bring the garden into all rooms – on all sides, on both levels. As the light and seasons change continually, moving from room to room is a joy. The large open plan living area on the upper level is flexible and many furnishing choices can be made. The gourmet kitchen boasts carara white marble bench tops, all SMEG appliances including integrated dishwasher. Four bedrooms and a study with the master enjoying north/south garden views as well as double vanity ensuite and walk in dressing room. The self-contained guest rooms downstairs have been fitted out with the same finest quality appliances and fittings as used upstairs. Cabinet work, door furniture etc has a soft country feel and coupled with soft paint colours will not date. Classically stylish, not fashionable this property will only increase in value.
The garden was cleared selectively and the remaining trees and shrubs pleached to allow sunlight into all areas. Mass plantings and careful choices have already thickened and a superb sensitive sophisticated garden will continue to thrive. All seasons are defined well. The old-fashioned French and English roses newly planted are everywhere, whilst the newest bulbs still slumber the soil awaiting spring. More than seven hundred and fifty daffodils alone are planted along the edge of garden beds and gravel paths. Peonies and many tulips add to the colour burst in many pockets throughout the garden. The autumn is a riot of colour with dozens of maples and of course the nature-strip planting now reaches to the roadside where the garden now finishes. The vegetable patch is unconventional, artistic and clever.
The entire house and garden reflect all you would hope and expect from a substantial property in this location.
