Property DescriptionThis very special home designed by Don Donnithorne is packed with character and architectural features, making it an immensely exciting candidate for a renovation project in a blue-chip location. Set on an easy-care 400 sqm section in the heart of Merivale, it's just a short stroll to the village or a three-minute drive to Victoria Street or Hagley Park, while zoning for your pick of schools - Elmwood School, Heaton, Burnside High, Boys' High, Girls' High - ensures wide appeal.
Cedar construction and pitched rooflines lend distinctive character to the exterior, but inside the architectural feel of this home comes into its own, with a series of visually interesting spaces, several making full use of the roofline with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. Timber features add warmth, while creative use of glazing injects light - and drama. The original timber kitchen sits alongside a light-filled dining space with French doors to the garden and parquet floors flowing through to a spacious lounge, with north facing capturing all day sun. Here, a curved staircase leads upstairs to a mezzanine office or additional living space with its own sheltered balcony. Two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes both open to the outdoors, while sloping glass panels in the bathroom deliver a leafy garden view and there's a separate powder room off the laundry. Outside, the landscaping makes full use of the 400 sqm grounds, with a generous paved entertaining area against a backdrop of established gardens.
If the ordinary just won't do, don't miss the opportunity to secure this remarkable property. Contact the agent without delay to register your interest because homes like this are few and far between!
