This would have to be one of the best character renovation projects I have ever seen, combining old with new while being incredibly sympathetic to the history and quality of the original 1905 Bay Villa.

From the minute you walk in the front door you will be mesmerised by the high ceilings, polished matai floors and intricate wooden, and stained glass, detailing as you wander through this unique 240m2 home. Comprising 5 double bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, formal and informal living as well as a study and rumpus room.

The house is positioned perfectly for the sun until the very end of the day and you can enjoy it from either the large deck that runs the full width of the kitchen/family room or from the flat lawn and patio that connect with the rest of the house via a gorgeous wrought iron spiral staircase.

If you have been looking for a large family home close to the city, then you need to come and see this magnificent character villa on a quiet cul de sac with an abundance of playing fields, tennis courts and green belt right at your door step.
