This enchanting period home is set among idyllic green gardens on a 1300 square metre block. The house was designed and built by architect Wilfred Coltman in 1928 and retains the superb period features of the era, combined with the conveniences of modern living.
The original areas of the home include wood panelling, coffered ceilings, and solid wood doors with leadlight glass panels. The formal living room is full of period character, overlooking the lush gardens through the bay window.
The adjoining bathroom blends modern tiling and a glass shower with old-world features such as a claw foot bath and fireplace. There is also a separate walk-in robe, completing the master suite. Three other bedrooms have elegant period features, each with a walk-in robe and one with an ensuite. A fifth bedroom has built-in shelves, ideal for use as a study.
A modern extension at the rear of the home houses the informal living areas. The modern kitchen has new AEG appliances, a built-in wine rack, walk-in pantry, electrically operated overhead cupboards and drawers, marble benches and an island bench.
The kitchen forms part of an open plan family area with modern dining and living spaces. A wall of windows in the family area offers garden views, and glass doors lead out to the huge terrace and outdoor entertaining space with an automatic self-closing, fully adjustable louvered roof. The family living room has floor-to-ceiling windows framing the open stone fireplace and solid cement hearth.
The home has hydronic heating, air conditioning and a ducted vacuum system. Outside is a four-car garage, mature trees, a 25,000-litre water storage tank with pressure pump, and a remote-control front gate.
