Rescued and revived with a profound respect for its history, this c1881 residence showcases a commitment to quality and attention to authenticity that have defined its transformative renovation.
This home is characterised by a number of inviting spaces, including two sitting rooms: one perfect as an evening retreat, the other designed to catch the northern light.
A library fitted with beautiful bookshelves and a bright dining room that could be a potential fourth bedroom are kept constantly comfortable by both open fire-places and modern hydronic heating.
Beyond this, a charming vestibule provides a link to the welcoming kitchen and everyday dining area that's light-filled and further enhanced by split system heating/cooling, marble bench-tops, BOSCH dish-washer, soft-closing cabinetry and NEFF appliances.
The powder room and separate European laundry complete this ideal space.
A period staircase leads to the three upstairs bedrooms, all with period fireplaces and built-in storage.
These rooms are arranged around a bathroom that benefits from sub-floor heating and a fabulous free-standing bath with a view - a space to linger and luxuriate.
Equally enticing outside, here you'll find private north-facing garden spaces that are perfect for entertaining, for soaking up the sun and for appreciating an address that despite its city edge location boasts a secure carport easily accessed by a wide rear right-of-way.
Originally commissioned by Henry Reed, and completed by his second wife Margaret, DUNORLAN is a romantic example of its era - and a home that meets every modern day requirement with style and success.
