Mid-century home on 1.2 acres of parkland
This late mid-century residence exemplifies the lifestyle promise of an era where entertaining took place at home on any scale from intimate to extraordinary. Standing on over an acre of shaded lawn in the park-like surrounds of Mount Eliza, the multi-level home is enclosed in an ever-green backdrop through walls of windows. Each living room is flanked by a fireplace and outdoor decking made large by glazing that meets towering ceilings inviting the majesty of nature into the home. Timber accents throughout reflect the landscape but also function to warm spaces flooded with natural light. The master suite looks out to a balcony with two family bedrooms hidden on the lowest level like so many features in a home of angles and levels. A fully-equipped outdoor kitchen with water and gas plumbing as well as fridge rest in a southern tropical garden and living area where the lawns seem to never end. A covered 5-person spa compliments the outdoor living for year-round enjoyment. The kitchen has been recently updated with a SMEG cooker, microwave and Miele dishwasher overseen by a timber atrium that appears to float in the trees. The floorplan of the home is underscored by a massive storage space, whilst a double carport provides shelter at the driveway level. Ducted gas heating and alarm system included.
