An expertly-crafted home secluded in lush College-Zone corner gardens, this bespoke beauty is ready to unveil its mysteries. Conceived by a passionate master-builder for a family member with a love of all things French, this finely-wrought home offers an eclectic twist on traditional three bedroom, two bathroom, dual zone design. From a curvaceous sitting-room catching north sun through an arc of delicate French-windows, to voluminous open-plan living warmed by a Travertine-mantled gas-fire (in addition to discreet integrated cooling), this is craftsman-quality with a French spirit. With the choice of a gorgeous garden-view master-suite or garret-style Velux-windowed master-level, the home adapts to every style of lifestyle …and adds style to the simplest tasks. In this unique design, a French farmhouse kitchen has flagstone floors, mesh cabinetry, Kleenmaid appliances and an atrium view, individually-detailed bathrooms star feature tiling and tailored fittings, and built-in robes come with a rounded edge. Artisan-detailed with deep decorative cornices, slender French doors and beautiful joinery including fireside-shelving, the home faces the street (from the seclusion of rambling formal gardens) with arched double-doors beneath a sheltering portico, an easy-access auto-garage …and a graciously-weathered sand-and-cement rendered façade with Porter's cement finish. Just 250m from McKinnon Rd's cafe society and station, and 21 minutes by rail to the CBD, this is your place in the Provence sun in the heart of the McKinnon College Zone.
