Original Wayne Gillespie design, recently upgraded with a stunning, contemporary renovation by award winning architect, Clare Cousins, Armadale Retreat sits in a premier inner-Melbourne location. This four-bedroom, two-level contemporary home not only brings you generous and flexible family living, an outdoor pool and spacious gardens, but is just minutes from some of the city’s best shopping and cafes. So, whether you stay in and relax in style indoors or out, or explore the area, you’re sure to find peaceful luxury at Armadale Retreat.
Designed with families in mind, you’re catered to from the moment you arrive in this highly sought location, with the convenience of driveway parking. And the first-class quality of your luxury escape continues inside. A calm, neutral backdrop and timber flooring delivers a warm and inviting interior. Carefully positioned skylights and extensive glazing breathes natural light throughout the home.
That includes the stunning timber staircase that leads to the expansive second floor. Upstairs, the younger guests have two perfectly styled bedrooms to choose from; one has a king single and the other has two single beds. While the simple elegance of the family bathroom makes bath time an absolute breeze. In the third bedroom, you’ll find a king bed, ensuite with bath and shower and a balcony overlooking the pool; this room is reserved for those seeking total privacy and relaxation.
Downstairs you have the luxury of two separate living zones and a fourth bedroom can be fitted with a cot or a queen bed as required. At the rear of the home is an open plan kitchen and living area that enjoys views of the deck and lawn. Get comfortable in the living room with its large sofa, television and fire. While in the fully equipped kitchen a stunning island bench and integrated timber table makes mealtimes a fuss-free and enjoyable experience. In fact, you can even prepare meals while the kids play outside on the trampoline.
Moving to the front of the home and you have more space to spread out at the formal dining table and inviting living area. You can choose to admire the front garden and the very private swimming pool from the comfort of the lounge, or walk out the sliding doors and take a relaxing dip in the pool. When you’re ready to return indoors, you have the convenience of a downstairs toilet and shower.
Fully gated & completely private.
From your leafy surroundings of Armadale Retreat, it’s just a short walk to High Street where you can spend the day browsing antique and high fashion shops or simply sampling the numerous cafes and restaurants. Public transport is easily accessible with bus, tram and train options all within walking distance – not to mention you’re just 20 minutes from the Melbourne CBD Union Street Reserve is nearby and offers a place for the kids to run around and play and there’s even a tennis court for hire, while Malvern Public Gardens is also within walking distance.
