Prime property – 2 Melkin End, Gordon.

They just don’t make them like this anymore. Rich in historical pedigree and sprawling over a 1523sqm block brimming with parklike lawns fragrant rose gardens and manicured hedges, the c1915 home is also located in Gordon’s prestigious east side.

It’s not hard to imagine parties and lazy days in the shade of the trees or by the sandstone-edged pool, all of which have been enjoyed by the Dwyer family in the 17 years they have been there.

Philip Dwyer said his favourite part of 2 Melkin End, had been the back deck in summer – the site of many casual lunches and barbecues with friends.

Country charm close to the city.

Dine outside all year round.

And there have been plenty of memorable moments, for the whole family, he said.

“There have been 21st birthday parties for three children and an engagement party for one of them, and many memorable dinner parties in the dining room,” he said.

A striking 58m frontage is the first hint of the grandeur that lays beyond.

A vestibule foyer leads to the formal living and banquet-sized dining room, impressive spaces with 11ft ceilings, a wood fireplace and wide doors opening out to a covered terrace and the gardens beyond.

The pool.

The gas kitchen is a cook’s dream, and was fully refurbished in 2010 by De Gabrielle kitchens with entirely new cupboards, marble bench tops, appliances and floor, at a cost of about $80,000.

The family living is more like a conservatory, and is filled with light. French doors open to the pool and gardens.

Sweet dreams.

It’s a fitting prestige listing for the newly minted agency known as Marshall. Chan. Yahl., which opened on the north shore this month.

James Yahl said the home was proving popular with families thanks to the large amount of space and proximity to the train line.

Other features of the home include an all-weather, north facing dining terrace overlooking the pool, climate-controlled 1000-plus bottle wine cellar, attic storage and two lockup garages.

The property is within walking distance of Gordon East Public School, Ravenswood Girls and is within the Killara High catchment.

The home is due to go to auction on December 7, at 2pm, with a price guide of $3,650,000. For more information contact James Yahl, or Craig Marshall, at Marshall. Chan. Yahl.
