High Ceilings with Amazing Views

There are times when waiting for the right home to come to the market in a prestige suburb is the best strategy – and now you have finally found it!

Sitting prominently at the Mugga Way end of Endeavour Street with incredible views, the street presence alone of No. 85 ensures you know you are in for something special as you walk up the winding front stairs, past the weeping Cherry Tree on the way to the front door which has an art deco window on the side panel.

The number of expansive windows in this mid-century contemporary residence is amazing, ensuring all living rooms are sun filled at all times of the year, with a grapevine providing shade in summer. The elevated balcony has great views to Mt Ainslie and beyond, and during winter you can see Lake Burley Griffin.

If you can move yourself away from the balcony views, your new home has all the beautiful features expected of a well-built double brick home of the 1960s. The 11.5M x 5.5M main lounge room oozes charm with a fireplace, and gorgeous original Mountain Ash /Australian Oak polished floorboards. The lounge room has direct access to the enclosed conservatory/sunroom through French doors. Not to be outdone, the family room has its own slow combustion log fireplace that generates amazing heat for winter warmth, plus French doors opening on each side of the room to patio/garden on one side and the balcony and grapevine views on the other for when the weather is warmer.

The built-in robe space in three of the four bedrooms is considerable. The segregated king size master bedroom has an ensuite with a spa bath and shower, plus a built-in robe as well as a walk-in robe. Bedroom 2, currently used as a study, easily accommodates a double bed, and Bedroom 3 is queen-sized. The other bedroom, Bedroom 4, is a king-sized and it has its own hand basin/mirror cupboard/storage that is accommodated inside the built-in robe. Great for guests!

The patio provides yet more outdoor room for quiet contemplation. This is easily accessible from both the family room and the conservatory/sunroom.

The wine cellar downstairs has built-in shelving for 580 bottles, but currently holds 1500+ bottles in standalone wine racks. Next to the Cellar is a workshop/storeroom with extensive shelving, and there is another storage area beyond the laundry. The third bathroom is downstairs and is directly adjacent to the chlorinated swimming pool and heated spa.

There are simply too many features to list, and your inspection of this treasured family home is strongly recommended.
