Every now and then in the 1960's and 70's residential architectural flair would break through the constraints of traditional box shaped homes and birth a new identity one of timeless retro skillion roof lines, alluring ambience and irreplaceable character. Like a decadent chocolate truffle amongst a bag of plain chocolate swirls this is one sweet treat that sticks out from the rest!
Ideally located in the ever popular hills suburb Gooseberry Hill within walking distance to the much sought after Gooseberry Hill primary school, bushland reserves and the Zig Zag walking trail this is a home that dovetails beautifully with families who appreciate convenience and yearn for that energetic connection that sparks an instant knowing that this is the one.
Poised so elegantly on its sprawling corner 2035m2 block and framed by native cottage styled gardens sets the scene perfectly for this 'Retro Retreat'. Upon entry you are greeted by a large foyer style entrance that overlooks an inviting and large sunken lounge room enveloped by feature floor to ceiling picture windows taking full advantage of the coastal glimpses and outlook to the shimmering pool. At the centre of the home is a groovy rebirthed kitchen blending perfectly with the homes overall personality that adjoins a large open dining area making meal time for the tribe easy and spacious. Adjacent to the kitchen is a snug sun filled second living room versatile as a kid's activity room or an adults chill-out zone with access to outside from two sides. Suited to a family this home boasts four bedrooms and two bathrooms plus a study which if needed could be a potential 5th bedroom plus oodles of storage room not normally seen in this era.
Outside is just as alluring and suspense filled as the inside with its adventurous half acre block full of surprises and hidden nooks just perfect for kids to explore. And for the Big kids it's an entertainers paradise as you enjoy a wine or two from the raised decked alfresco adoring the twinkling lights at night and splashes in the pool by day. From a practical point of view the corner block orientation provides three way vehicle access and an ideal situation if you were considering building a future granny flat.
