A toast to the 40’s with contemporary lifestyle – ‘Summerhill Estate’

Sitting high on a large, peaceful ‘Summerhill Estate’ allotment (1,016sqm approx), this beautiful, brick home has been insightfully renovated and extended, combining the best of the era with open-plan and zoned living environment delivering a family a wonderful and comfortable lifestyle in a leafy and accessible locale.

There is something very special about 40’s architecture by the way each member of the family is considered and accounted for with respect to comfort and liveability.

True to the era of appointment and amenity, the home is ideally suited for zoned/entertaining living and features a formal lounge room with open fire place and a formal dining room, while the modern renovation delivers an expansive north facing open-plan kitchen, meals and family room combination... these rooms share an outlook to the extensive landscaped rear garden with its elaborate paved and decked areas. The stunning kitchen includes stone benchtops, breakfast bar to seat 5 comfortably, Emporite finished cabinetry with soft closing doors, Bosch cookware, Asko dishwasher, Smeg Exhaust and servery windows to the rear patio. The excellent rear studio is ideal for disappearing teens, a man cave or home office. Additional features include built-in robes, air conditioning, hydronic heating, a powder room and second WC, two garden sheds and large garden awning.

The home is well positioned on this large allotment providing ample space for a pool and cabana arrangement if so desired. Awash with period features - grand entrance staircase, entrance hall, curved veranda, corner windows, polished Victorian Ash flooring and the wonderful use of light and space, this quality family home wants for little.

The sought after ‘Summerhill Estate’ locale offers tree lined streets, 5 min walk to two train stations, an easy stroll to High Street shops, Anniversary and Ferndale trails, numerous kindergartens, primary and secondary schools.
