A magical mix of heritage romance and contemporary cool, this colonial style villa creates a memorable first impression. With its legendary annual bougainvillea display and picket fence "The White House" has earned its reputation as a Local Landmark with good reason. This resort style home is brimming with ornate features from the era and villa lovers will delight in the soaring ceilings, timber floors, return veranda and original fireplaces. The property unfolds over 194sqm of living with a flexible layout ideal for growing families.
Tastefully extended some 25 years ago, a newly renovated open plan kitchen, dining and living area dominates the rear with slider doors opening out to your own inner city oasis with tropical gardens and pool. Open the trap door in the kitchen and discover a wine cellar with enough room for a subterranean sampling for two. Three double bedrooms, recently upgraded family bathroom, separate laundry and a formal lounge flow off the gracious central hall on the ground floor and the master suite occupies a prime position overlooking the pool and gardens. Upstairs a large mezzanine provides an open plan double bedroom or office/second lounge and another loft room with space for two single beds.
Park-like grounds of just under 1000sqm are seriously impressive and provide a sanctuary for the whole family to run, play or relax. Positioned on a northern ridge, all day sunshine is a given here with a desirable north facing aspect. A double garage provides room for the cars, boat or a workshop with extra off street parking outside. Morningside Precinct and Kingsland Village are minutes away with their wining and dining establishments as are excellent transport links, the cycle path and sought after schools.
