Black & White Classic
80 Straven Road in Fendalton is a special home surrounded by magnificent Marion Morris designed gardens amid 1,432m² grounds. Beautifully discreet from the street, yet spectacular and substantial within, it delivers a fabulous family lifestyle spread over 405m². It is in walking distance of Mona Vale & Hagley Park, and the best public & private schools. Built in 1948, the home was substantially extended in 2002 by Sheppard & Rout architects with its most recent renovation completed just this year. A classic 'Cape Cod' style it offers the charm of a traditional house and the comforts of a contemporary home; open spaces, warmth and lots of light. The front door opens into the heart and hero of the home; a brand new, light filled kitchen, dining and living area looking out to the northerly garden. A massive marble island bench is perfect for breakfast and drinks with the cook. French doors on the kitchen's west open to a spectacular conservatory with flagstone paving and a log burner. A sunny terrace, outdoor table and barbeque complete the entertaining area. A beautifully wallpapered hall leads to a more personal family living room, while the adjoining rumpus room provides a homework and TV space for kids young or old. Adjacent to the family living room is a quiet office that basks in the last of the afternoon sun. There are five bedrooms on offer, three downstairs including the master bedroom with en-suite and dressing room; a family bathroom supports the other two downstairs bedrooms. A further two bedrooms upstairs (each with its own en-suite) are perfect for teenagers. Other notable features include two gas fires, radiators & heat pumps, solid oak floors, new carpet, alarm, butler's pantry, new laundry, built in robes and internal access double garaging. Despite these countless enticements, our owner's new plans are irreversible - the keys to this alluring home will be changing hands on (or before) auction day. Don't miss this outstanding opportunity.
