Designed in the 1920s by esteemed architect Heathcote Helmore this five-bedroom entertainers paradise maintains a commanding presence.
Our seller's knack for interiors is noticeable in the luxurious curtains and whimsical palette of Georgian colours that separate and define substantial living spaces. A library, formal dining, drawing room grace the ground floor, along with a contemporary family wing that encompasses a kitchen, butler's pantry and laundry showcasing Ingrid Geldof's talent for reconciling modernity and memory.
Three north facing French doors invite vast amount of light into the heart of the 360m2 home, with diesel radiators providing discreet heat. Alongside a practical mud room and dedicated office space, the downstairs is enhanced by a pair of bedrooms that share full bathroom facilities. A grand staircase leads to the more private accommodation wing, where there are three large bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms.
Well-crafted landscaping lends structure and symmetry to 1235m2 of park-like grounds, including the charming port cochere and sensible garaging. An outdoor fireplace, sweeping terraces, and a heated swimming pool guarantee convivial summer days ahead. Situated within the school zones, in reach of both the Merivale village and the CBD, this beautiful home is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.
Having gifted our vendors a stunning backdrop for countless events with friends and family, this extremely elegant yet functional masterpiece is a must-have for heritage lovers and style aficionados.
