Featured Home: Sculptural design in a secluded corner, nature on doorstep

Written by realestateview.com.au in Buying on August 4, 2020

There is something timeless and quite impressive about a home that encapsulates elements of what is on-trend today yet with subtle nods to the minimalist designs of the past. This Strathdale home, quietly hidden away in a picturesque corner of the city, is a property which can already be described as a classic.

The use of sharp angles on interior walls and windows give the home a sculptural feel which is only enhanced by the elegantly understated decor. The crisp white walls, polished concrete floors and unobtrusive fittings ensure the quality of the build is given prominence while the large windows with views of surrounding bushland create seasonal, living works of art.

Recently renovated and reappointed throughout, this immaculate Russell Parsons build is ready to be admired and enjoyed by its new owners.

A formal entry leads directly into a spacious, carpeted lounge room, from which you can step down to a large open plan kitchen, living and dining room offering accessible split-level living.

The newly renovated kitchen is perfectly appointed with stone benchtops, soft-close cabinetry and high-end appliances. The grand feature of this space however, is the triple aspect, floor-to-ceiling windows offering a spectacular outlook across the rear yard to the bushland beyond.

The main bedroom is located off the front lounge and this spacious retreat includes walk-through robes to a modern ensuite with walk-in shower and double vanity. A glass sliding door opens from the bedroom to a terrace, the perfect place to sit and enjoy the tranquil aspect.

From the entrance is a hallway off which are the remaining bedrooms, two with built-in robes which sit either side of a modern family bathroom with freestanding bathtub, while another is at the end of this wing offering itself as a large bedroom, guest room or rumpus room depending on individual needs. There is also a study or home office off the front entrance.

Sitting on an allotment of some 1000 square metres, the home is surrounded by landscaped gardens with the salt-chlorinated, in-ground pool as a feature. Surrounded by paving and lawn, and overlooked by an alfresco area covered with pergola and vines, it’s easy to imagine enjoying the outdoor summer lifestyle offered while the fire pit is perfect for those cooler evenings or weekends.

The double garage features a roller door allowing easy vehicle access to the back yard, where there is also a garden shed and water tanks. A gate at the rear of the block provides direct access to the tracks and trails of the National Park.

The property is within walking distance to bus stop, Kennington Reservoir and Strath Village, close to all amenities including both primary and secondary schools, and less than 10 minutes from Bendigo’s CBD.
