If a custom-built, award-winning home in leafy suburbia, but with views of the Melbourne CBD sounds like your kind of heaven, you’re in luck‚ – 57 Cityview Road, in beautiful Balwyn North in Melbourne’s inner east, could be your ideal new home!
Winner of the 2010 HIA Spec Home of the Year Award for Victoria, the home was designed and constructed by The Evolve Group, and takes luxe family living to the next level.
“What can I say – it’s a great property,” says agent John Bradbury, of Noel Jones Balwyn.
“It’s a big home, but it’s not too big,” John adds, “and it would be a great environment for any family to live and grow up in.”
Ideal for modern family life
The home has been impeccably designed, with attention paid to every detail, while also offering a layout that complements modern family life. The many retreat areas afford both kids and adults alike their own private zones, while the open-plan living and dining areas are the perfect place to come together as a family.
The gourmet kitchen features Miele appliances, a stone island bench, butler’s pantry, and a study nook – ideal for use as a kids’ homework area. For more formal occasions, the dining room, complete with crystal chandelier and a gas feature fireplace is perfect for entertaining, and opens out onto the front terrace.
In addition to the four main bedrooms, there is a lavish guest bedroom for your visitors, and a fully fitted home office, while extra luxury features include the spotted gum floorboards and a lift to the upper floors. The master bedroom has his and hers walk-in-robes and balcony access, and a private bathroom with a dual vanity and freestanding bath. There’s even a private study space in the ‘hers’ robe.
Outside, you can entertain come rain or shine with a covered alfresco area, inclusive of barbeque, fireplace, hot and cold water, lighting and an integrated fridge drawer. There’s a gas-heated swimming pool, elevated deck great for lounging on sunny days, and low-maintenance synthetic lawn.
On the rooftop, there’s a terrace with amazing city views, with fireplace, which opens out from the full-size bar area complete with beer and wine fridges and stone benchtops, sure to impress your guests. Additional refrigerated wine storage is located on the basement level, to house even the largest collection.
Sought-after school zoning
The home is within the intake zone for the highly-ranked Balwyn High School, which is sure to make it a winner with families, and the kids will love the home cinema, complete with projector and surround sound.
There’s also a four-car garage, zoned heating and air conditioning, ducted vacuum, and a sprinkler system, as well as CCTV, alarm system and intercom with camera for your security and peace of mind. The garage boasts a race-deck flooring system, and expansive built-in cabinetry for all your storage needs.
