Tudor influenced exterior aesthetics and significant art deco era interior details combine to ensure this substantial residence's elegance matches the effectiveness with which it meets family needs. The site and the setting play their parts too. An allotment featuring north facing rear aspects and landscaped entertaining areas around a generous swimming pool accompanies the home, from which High Street, Armadale station, tram routes, schools and St Kilda are all easily reached. Separate grand formal living and dining rooms and a large study/library lead to light filled family spaces, an open plan kitchen with walk in pantry and European appliances and beyond to the garden expanses. Five upstairs bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate laundry/third shower contribute ample accommodation to a classically comfortable floor-plan that creates an exceptional opportunity, complemented by double garage and simple scope for adding contemporary elements when so desired.
