Stylish Living in Dunkeld West
This majestic 3000 square metre property, approached from the main road via a leafy, tree-lined panhandle, is landscaped with a distinctly classical European ambiance, providing a perfect setting for the elegant, restrained and dignified continental design of the large, double-storey house.
The garden features expertly manicured trees and shrubs, numerous well-tended flower beds, carefully cut lawn, fountains, and pathways, accompanied by tastefully designed ornamentation. One of its more impressive features is a very large, mature rubber tree.
The property is on a double stand with subdivision rights. The bottom part of the garden, on a lower level, is secluded from the main house and could easily be turned into a tennis court.
The interiors of the house are roomy with high ceilings and excellent finishes throughout. The house is north-facing with the main entrance from the south. It is tiled throughout except for the bedrooms which are carpeted. All doors are solid wood with brass handles, the window frames are all in matching wood, as are the well-crafted and finished skirting boards.
Main features of the house include a double carpeted stairway with balustrades crafted from cast iron and topped with wooden handrails, which lead from an entrance hall up to the four main bedrooms, two of which are en suite. The entrance hall opens onto an outside patio which contains a swimming pool set in tasteful classical surroundings. Downstairs, to the left, is a double lounge/sitting area. On the right is the main lounge leading into the dining area next to the kitchen and pantry.
The main dining room is large and spacious and can easily seat 12 people at a formal sit-down dinner. But with its entrance out onto a large covered patio and into the garden, it could as easily accommodate as many as 30 people at a less formal function, such as a cocktail party or a finger supper. The kitchen has excellent finishes and is well equipped with ample cupboard space and high quality appliances.
Upstairs are four bedrooms, as well as bathrooms, showers and a study/office area. The main bedroom is very spacious with its own bathroom/shower and bidet, and walk-in wardrobe. Next to it is a roomy study/office area which opens out at each end onto roof-top patios. This part of the house can be sealed off by a double, solid wooden door.
The second bedroom, also en suite, features a very large double shower. Across from the two remaining bedrooms is another combined bathroom and shower. This part of the house can be sealed off by a roll-down steel door.
The property is surrounded by high walls topped by extensive electric fencing. It also features state-of-the art security, has separate servants quarters, a garage for three cars, and enough space to park at least another nine cars.
