Space Real Estate, Justin Davies, 0419 909 350.

The home achieves what many try and fail to accomplish, a perfect sense of balance and harmony between history and modern updates, which allows a sense of harkening back while looking forward.

“There are a number of wonderful things to love about this property,” Space Real Estate director Justin Davies said.

“The first and most obvious is the blending of a stunning character home that is over 100 years old with a very chic and very cool contemporary addition. Combining the warmth, atmosphere and soul of an old home with sleek and convenient modern living, in a home that is large but at the same time still feels intimate and cosy,” he continued.

The ground floor of the abode is home to the entertaining an living zones, with an open plan living and dining area serving as the heart, with a scattering of living rooms forming around the extremities.

Up the stairs you will find five of the six bedrooms in the property, with the main bedroom enjoying its own walk-in robe, ensuite and private balcony.

Davies said the most wonderful thing about the home is that it is on a massive landholding that allows the northern light to stream into the home during the winter months.

“It also has numerous living spaces, both traditional and luxurious, along with very cool and very chic modern living zones. The outdoor entertaining area, pool area and massive lawn area combine to create a home that would make going away on holidays seem pretty pointless.”

Despite not opening the home to visitors yet, Davies said they have been inundated with inquiries from local residents, eastern states buyers and expats leaving overseas planning on moving back home over the next few years.

“Homes like this very rarely come to market and the demand has been massive,” he said.
