Unley Park 12 Whistler Avenue
Magnificent and substantial character residence (circa 1925) of over 700sqm (approx.), with north/south floodlit synthetic tennis court, fully tiled, solar heated swimming pool and manicured, botanic garden grounds (serviced by a bore), all ideally positioned right at the northern boutique end, and adjacent to the idyllic Heywood Park.
Presenting a most stunning and timeless street appeal, which has been complimented by sympathetic Pauline Hurren additions to cater for the busy lives of the growing family in 2020.
The residence is perfectly balanced within the generous 2,184sqm (approx.) garden allotment, allowing the occupiers to fully appreciate the surrounding botanic gardens from every room, including the upstairs bedroom and living wing.
Beautiful period features adorn the well-proportioned formal living rooms, including open fireplaces, lofty ceilings and stunning leadlight windows.
The formal dining room and adjoining formal sitting room are elegantly disposed, both with ornate fireplaces and combine some 44sqm (approx.) of sophisticated and most gracious living.
The study is conveniently located well away from the action, and features an open fireplace, and overlooks the manicured front gardens through stunning leadlight windows.
The reception hallway is graciously wide and presented on timeless herringbone parquetry floors and flows through to the main casual living and entertaining area, which is particularly generous and enjoys a light-infused atmosphere due to the ideal north/westerly orientation.
Picture windows surround this magnificent gallery sized family area allowing the occupant to fully draw in the sundrenched gardens, tennis court and fully tiled, solar heated pool, ensuring you don't miss a beat of this lifestyle property.
The master chef kitchen with island bench is most generous in size, and boasts an abundance of beautifully crafted timber joinery, granite benchtops, integrated bar fridges, rosieres ovens, and three sinks in total.
A centrally located combustion heater is a feature and warms this area with ease and is perfect for those cooler months.
The residence is encompassed by sweeping verandahs, which is perfect for entertaining both at the front or to the rear of the home, overlooking the court and pool.
This family home copes well through all seasons and is further complimented by ducted gas heating on the lower level, as well as a more recent ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioner which features throughout the home.
Accommodation is particularly impressive, with five very generous bedrooms, all with picturesque garden, pool and court outlooks, through leadlight or plantation shutter windows.
The master wing is ideally located on the lower level, is opulent in size, and is complimented by a very generous walk in dressing room, which flows through to the well-presented and light-filled ensuite bathroom, with underfloor heating and with dual basins.
The elegance and size of the master bedroom wing, given its many stunning garden outlooks, is simply exquisite and is a true feature of the home.
A second bedroom is also located on the lower level and is serviced by an exceptionally spacious central bathroom, with underfloor heating, dual basins, bath and large shower alcove, and which can also be accessed from the outdoor verandah through double doors, which is perfect for children using the pool and tennis court.
The upstairs children's accommodation is voluminous and is serviced by a large stylish bathroom and a very spacious, central games/TV room.
The idyllic north/south, floodlit, synthetic tennis court showcases an adjacent all-weather clubhouse that has been sympathetically designed to blend into the architecture of the residence, and is a perfect spot for a cold drink in between games, or perhaps a further outside dining area.
The sparkling, fully tiled, solar heated swimming pool (and adjacent inground spa) is sunbathed and in full view of the main casual living area, giving parents added comfort.
The double garage and side carport have also been crafted to blend in seamlessly to the streetscape of this elegant residence.
A further driveway/car or boat access on the northern boundary is also of added value.
In essence, this family home exudes style, elegance, sophistication and a timeless ambience in which to exist, and is ideally positioned on one of the most desired whisper quiet and premium positions in Unley Park, and within a short stroll to Heywood Park, or a bit further to fashionable King William Road's retail and cafe culture.
Boutique city fringe family living.
