Colonial Character all Class
Traditional character proves that class will always stand the test of time - like a fine wine. In this home, a fine-wine ambience couldn't happen in a more beautiful place. Sitting in Lynmore, location is the first aspect that gives this home credence. Backing on to the local reserve, this is an easy walk to the Lynmore tennis club, or a stroll around the park. The playground will be a favourite haunt when the grandchildren visit, while the Redwood Forest is just down the road. The home's traditional character is introduced with its distinctive colonial design - its classic lines showcasing gabled ceilings, dormer windows in the upper level and a verandah welcome with bay-windows. It is around the back of the home, that a continental hint instils a different air. An Italian influence assumes new meaning in this courtyard. The brick fire and barbecue element match the appeal of this charming courtyard, while the wrought-iron garden gate completes its cafe ambience. Brilliant in summer, it's just as alluring in winter with the fire sparking. Fireside cosiness continues inside - with the ease of gas fires in both lounges and different moods in each. Step-down formality in the separate lounge enhances its space, while the family lounge links with the dining area and kitchen next door. The kitchen, by Creative Craftsmen, finished in solid oak, embraces the colonial character while boasting a contemporary touch with the butler's sink. Granite counters and subway tiling complete the picture of a kitchen with space to move. Similar styling in the laundry also highlights this home's common link that transcends eras with modern grace. Three bathrooms were all reinvented - chic design blending full tiling, glass showers and bespoke vanities. There are three garages - a double internal-entry garage, plus a large single for all sorts of uses. While easy-care landscaping leaves nothing to do at weekends, other than entertain friends and family - over a fine wine, of course.
