6 Parkside Street,
A grand double fronted Victorian, circa 1890s, modernised and transformed with an exquisite two storey architectural extension. Entering the home through the imposing front door with original lead light detail, you are drawn back to Victorian times with the Baltic pine flooring, double arched 4 meter high ceilings and glimpses of the marble (gas retro fitted) fireplaces in the adjacent spacious formal sitting and dining rooms. The remainder of the period part of the home comprises three bedrooms all with built-in robes. These bedrooms are serviced by a sun-drenched bathroom finished in Travertine stone, guests have the use of a separate powder room on this level.
The transition to the heart of the home has a flow with the use of timber flooring, with a warm Tasmanian Oak throughout the expansive informal dining, living and kitchen. Glass walls bathe this zone with light and with the pool abutting, the contemporary feel is accentuated. As with the whole home, the modern kitchen has abundant storage including a walk in pantry and a 300+ racked temperature controlled wine room.
Outdoors to the rear has been thoughtfully designed with functionality and importantly low maintenance in mind, the double garage opening to group entertaining from the 10 burner mains gas fired BBQ. Gas and solar heated pool/spa remotely controlled, provides for enjoyment no matter the outdoor temperature.
Level 2 is a dedicated parents retreat, intimate with a luxury ambience, comprising living, study (easily converted to a child's room) and master suite. Mimicking the lower level with glass walls, the master bedroom exudes natural light through to a private balcony. Substantial walk-in robes lead to a sizable en-suite with freestanding bath, his/hers stone vanity and showers.
