A symphony of grandeur and quiet sophistication is the backdrop for this beautifully restored villa in its majestic location at the doorstep of Mt Hobson. The movie-worthy wide entry staircase makes a bold promise of what is to come. There is nothing to disappoint. Black architraves, crisp whites and Ralph Lauren papers quietly compliment the rescued features of yesteryear. When the expansive family space anchored by the outstanding kitchen with its twinkling overbench lighting gets too busy, you can sneak in a movie in the theatre, read the classics or play the grand piano which there is certainly room for. Five ensuited bedrooms including a glorious master retreat could tempt one to linger in their own space but the library and formal living are too sumptuous to ignore. Verandahs, sash windows, fireplaces, an IT room, air-conditioned wine cellar, 2.7m stud height in the garaging, generous off-street parking...the list truly does go on. Everything has been replaced from the services underground to the stairs to the attic. There's so much to take in, you'll even want to hang out in the laundry. The quaint appeal of the original little cottage to the rear for the nanny or the granny could even see the teenagers wanting to snare it as their own. This is a genuinely iconic home that is ready to become a legacy for generations to come.
