This Family Home Is A Vision of Modern Art Deco Elegance
Expression of Interest Closing Wednesday 7 April at 5.00 (Unless Sold Prior)
Beautifully designed and impeccably curated by the owner, every detail of this palatial four-bedroom family home in Preston is the manifestation of modern Art Deco elegance – a vision of style that’s cosy, welcoming and, most importantly, feels like home.
From hardwood timber floors, soaring ceilings and richly coloured walls, to whimsical bulkhead-framed curtains and plantation shutters, this home is an impressive balance of exquisite and unique design that’s simultaneously jaw-dropping and wholesome at every turn.
Some will be captivated by the show-stopping custom upholstered feature wall in the living room, while others will adore the parlour with a working fireplace framed by a gold-flecked Calacatta marble hearth, hotel-grade designer carpet and ornate lighting. Even the front door – a solid steel mother and son – is remarkable, both for its signature look and security.
The kitchen continues this trend with its sweeping stone benchtops, Steel Ascot six-burner gas cooktop and oven, concealed dishwasher, butler’s pantry and beautiful views of the backyard. Adjacent to a cosy dining room, framed by flowing curtains and pendant lights, it’s a bona fide playground for foodies and chefs who will delight in throwing intimate soirees and serving guests their culinary creations.
But the entertainment doesn’t stop there. Around the corner, through the impressive living room, is the entrance to the backyard. Bi-fold doors compress all the way across the living room wall to open onto a beautiful timber deck that steps down into a lovely east-facing low-maintenance garden. It’s all too easy to imagine yourself here, whether it’s hosting an epic family gathering, enjoying a summer barbecue with friends, celebrating children’s birthdays or simply enjoying your morning coffee while soaking up the morning sunshine.
When it’s time to retreat, you’ll find three generous bedrooms with walk-in robes upstairs that are cleverly bookended by a private theatre room and a peaceful landing space that lends itself to a home office, reading nook or kids play area – perfect for continuing the fun without sacrificing the rest of others. And let’s not forget the luxurious bathroom that services these rooms. Its floor-to-ceiling charcoal-coloured tiling, dual vanities, rain shower and freestanding stone bathtub promise endless relaxation.
Back downstairs the master bedroom lives up to its title with a walk-in robe that takes its occupants through to a glamorous ensuite with dual vanity, unique Deco-inspired mirrors (created by the owner) and luxurious rain shower with niche and exquisite black tiling.
And just when you thought there couldn’t be any more fabulousness to be found, additional features include zoned air conditioning and ducted heating, ducted vacuum, security system equipped with an alarm, cameras and video intercom, laundry room with exceptional storage, powder room, two storage cupboards and secure garage with direct access to the backyard and enough room for three cars.
Positioned in a quiet street just a casual stroll to fresh produce at Preston Market and High Street’s delectable dining scene, as well as the Plenty Road trams, Preston Train Station, Northland Shopping Centre, local parklands and a number of primary and secondary schools, your location ensures a life of comfort and convenience.
A rare find, this is an exceptional family home with the kind of character few places possess. Make it yours.
