An enchanting Edwardian with modern appeal in the Summerhill Estate
Spread over a magnificent 1,073m2 (approx.) landscaped allotment at the corner of Summerhill Avenue, this majestic Edwardian Bungalow has a wealth of history and a bright future.

A combination of formal and casual living domains and a central wine-cellar effortlessly support large-scale celebrations. Adjoining lounge and dining rooms are met with lavish proportion and grandeur, warmed by elaborate cast-iron fireplaces, and filled with natural light and garden views through bay window sitting areas. A casual kitchen/meals zone sympathetically matches the old-world elegance, providing modern functionality with a freestanding Smeg cooker, extensive stone benches and copious drawer-storage, plus walk-in pantry. A sheltered alfresco deck integrates indoors with outdoors, enhanced by subtle mood-lighting to create a most romantic setting to dine with friends amid an enchanting edible garden of fruit trees and vegetables.
The four-bedroom plus office layout provides spacious and flexible accommodation, complemented by sumptuous bathroom fit-outs in retro-styling. A downstairs master bedroom is pampered with walk-in robe and ensuite amenity, adjacent to a versatile use guest bedroom or library, while upstairs, two oversized bedrooms share a central family bathroom with a befitting claw-foot bath, and a private balcony overlooking Summerhill Estate and beyond.
