This renovated Armadale home – once a working dairy – has hit the market for the first time in 20 years.
The iconic red-brick Victorian has a price guide of $10-$11 million, offering up four bedrooms, multiple living areas, and even a pool on a prime corner block.
French oak floorboards, polished concrete, bluestone and timber finishes, and windows that capture the northern light create private, sophisticated, yet homey interiors with a very functional floorplan.
To put it another way, according to Kay & Burton agent Peter Kudelka, the property has a big wow factor.
“When you walk in you don’t expect the amount of light and space inside, everything flows from the front to the back,” he says. “It’s one of those properties people have been driving past for years, it’s well known in the area.”
Sitting on an approximately 578sqm block, the multi-level property curls around two fantastic al fresco spaces. One is a vine-framed courtyard perfect for a summer evening, while the other holds a decked out pool.
The two areas are separated by a glass-walled living room that gives a new meaning to indoor/outdoor living, with the sun-drenched kitchen just a few steps away. The kitchen’s clean, white lines and bespoke glass splashback look almost futuristic when contrasted with the dark timber floorboards, and cooking will definitely feel that way!
It’s just one of the living spaces on the property, with a study at the northern end of the home, a family room and TV room in the centre, and at the southern end, the converted stables doubles as a skylit games room.
Separate staircases take you to either end of the top floor where the sleeping quarters can be found. The four bedrooms feel timeless and elegant, and the sheer size of the master can’t be overstated, from the room itself to the wonderfully spacious and delicately coloured en suite.
Last but not least, the downstairs wine cellar can hold more than 600 bottles, and might be the nicest speakeasy you could find!
“The current owners bought it in 1999 and since then completed some major renovations,” Peter says. “It would suit anyone from families to couples, even downzisers, anyone looking for good accommodation and room size.”
