City Convenience or Rural Retreat? Both!
This exceptional home presents a unique lifestyle situation in the leafy suburb of Glendowie. In less than 3 minutes drive you can be sipping a latte made by an Italian – or you can stand at your boundary fence and feed the cows that populate Churchill Park.
Built in the 90s, the cedar and concrete home offers space galore! Spread over 240m² there is plenty of room to spread out and the configuration provides options for numerous family scenarios. Entry level consists of generous open plan living, kitchen and dining all facing the rural aspect – and the multiple windows, glass sliders and bifold doors showcase this vista perfectly. The kitchen has all the mod cons including a huge gas cooktop oven, dramatic backsplash and island bench – and a corner window seat provides a great place to curl up with a coffee. The indoor/outdoor flow is lovely with both the living and dining opening out to the massive wrap around deck that features glass balustrading – perfect for entertaining on a grand scale. There are also two bedrooms and a bathroom. Downstairs the internal access double garage is flanked by a self-contained suite plus a multi-purpose room that could be a gym, office – or a small bedroom. Upstairs comprises two more bedrooms (one the master) – both with en suites and both opening on to the upper balcony. Too numerous to mention, other features include an existing fibre connection; built-in sound system in the entry level, dining and living area; gas fireplace that keeps the upper and entry levels warm; video doorbell; plenty of parking and space for a double carport. There’s a sleepout/office separate to the main residence and a stream by the back of the house is a popular visiting spot for ducks and their ducklings.
Well maintained by the existing owner who further enhanced the home and its value – this included renovating downstairs; re-staining the cedar exterior and restoring the cedar shingle roof last year; and installing six heat pumps.
The gently sloping/level 788m² site is located near the end of a quiet, no-exit street in a desirable area close to beaches, the waterfront, shops, restaurants, cafes, etc – and is in zone for Churchill Park, Glendowie College – and Glendowie Primary (IB).
