Over time, a creative owner has thoughtfully redefined and extended this Birkenhead Point 1930's bungalow, infusing the charming, original rustic character of shiplap timber, beams and cosy fires with a crisp, elegant contemporary edge. The craftsmanship and attention to detail creates a villa that is picture book perfect - a little slice of The Hamptons. Cloistered at the edge of Le Roy's Bush, it's a compelling slice of laid-back country living, 10 minutes from the city, welcoming dedicated urbanites to an extraordinary lifestyle that includes myriad great cafes up the road. The spacious two-level, four-bedroom family home on a breathtaking 1281m of freehold land, unhinges completely to the sun. Both levels spill out to wrap-around decking for a languid, open, tent-like feel. Enjoy the sociability of the generous farmhouse styled kitchen - the absolute heart of the home - chatting to your guests and watching the children play. Collect your veges from a terraced garden bathed in northern sun. It's a greenies' paradise - dozens of fruit trees and water from the roof is collected for the garden. So clever, it was designed with lots of multi-purpose spaces - a self-contained studio/gym and everyone has their own individual retreat. Yet you can all come together in shared spaces. Parents entertain in upstairs living, while teenagers escape to the family lounge below or play on the sweeping lawn. Three beautiful timeless bathrooms add finishing touches of luxury. Park in the double garage at the top and step down to a private hideaway so seductive you will never want to leave. Exquisitely crafted for the lifestyle you deserve - make it yours!
