5 Rorke St, Beecroft, has a grand street presence in a private setting.

Some houses make a big first impression — like 5 Rorke St, Beecroft.

A grand facade and a highset position show off the five-bedroom house to best advantage.

Kevin Dearlove from Stone Real Estate Beecroft said the property has a powerful street presence.

“The house sits proudly, quite literally, on the high side of the street,” Mr Dearlove said.

The sheer size and scale of the building can be appreciated when walking to the front door.

A paved driveway leads to a two-storey arched portico entrance where almost three-metre double doors swing open to reveal a marble foyer entrance.

A staircase is furnished in an ornate iron balustrade with the delicate curves reflected in a chandelier that has the appearance of a gold leaf finish.

The rest of this double-brick family home does not disappoint.

As with all good designs, the floorplan contains a guest bedroom/study with ensuite and a powder room.

5 Rorke St, Beecroft, has a distinctive formal living an dining zone.

Mr Dearlove praised a formal lounge and dining room that carves the layout up into distinct zones by providing a room in which to host a real dinner party.

This charming space has high ceilings, windows framed by plantation shutters, delicate pendant lighting and a neutral colour palette complemented by warm timber flooring.

At the rear, the informal living and dining area almost runs the width of the house and can be divided into kitchen, conservatory, living and family room.

Mr Dearlove described these zones as “breakout areas. “There’s a spot to go to read a book or to study or read the paper.”

5 Rorke St, Beecroft, has a covered entertainment patio with a view to the inground swimming pool framed by a privacy hedge.

Maybe the Saturday paper could be tackled from a covered north-facing entertainment terrace with an outlook to a private backyard and saltwater pool protected by a tall privacy hedge?

Upstairs, four large bedrooms and a three-way main bathroom for busy families can be found along with a private sitting room.

The main bedroom is extra large with an ensuite and walk-in robe. The property has an automated gate entrance and three-car garage with internal entrance.

The property goes to auction on Saturday, June 22, at 2pm, with a price guide of $2.8 million-$3 million. For more details, contact Stone Real Estate Beecroft — Kevin Dearlove and Dean Foundas.
