Be transported to a sophisticated world when you enter this wonderful Victorian home; built in 1860 when horse drawn carriages clattered along Sydney"s cobblestone streets. Hiding behind the faade of this period gem, you will find original features which include marble fireplaces and 12 foot high ceilings. This home has been lovingly and stylishly renovated and offers all the modern conveniences you would expect to find to help you feel like this was your own home. This grand property will make you feel like a movie star, having appeared in several TV commercials.
As you enter through the front door, trimmed with lead light panels you are faced with a beautiful, richly coloured timber staircase that leads you upstairs to the bedrooms and studio. Alternatively continue down the hallway, passed the formal living and dining areas towards a spacious gourmet kitchen, stocked with all the appliances you could hope for when preparing a special meal for your family and friends.
Leading off the end of the kitchen in one direction you will find a comfortable and cozy family room incased in natural sunlight and looking over the glistening 12 meter lap pool. Lounge the afternoon away in luscious leather sofas while reading your choice of the hundreds of books this home offers and sipping a cup of tea from a far-away land. In the other direction you"ll find an informal dining area with seating for six; with an eclectic array of comfy chairs that leads out to the back yard, the BBQ and a leafy alfresco dining area that allows you to keep your eye on the little ones as they play.
Heading upstairs to the second level you will find a generous master bedroom with king sized bed and an elegant ensuite. The second and forth bedrooms each offer a queen sized bed, built-in robes and a private balcony with outdoor seating area. The third bedroom has two single beds and built-in robes. The main bathroom is complete with free-standing shower and a bathtub. Head up to the third level for the studio complete with views of the ocean and its own TV.
You will be seconds away from a bakery/patisserie owned by one of the most famous pastry chefs in Sydney, Adriano Zumbo, You can try 40 flavours of macarons including salted caramel, citron, sticky date, strawberry bubble-gum and wasabi and pickled ginger. He"s like a mash up of Willy Wonka and Roald Dahl. Dieting is futile.
