The outdoor entertainment area overlooks bushland
It has a quiet and unassuming facade but once inside this Glenhaven home the beauty of its leafy location will be appreciated.
The contemporary split level residence, which backs onto bushland at 49 Linksley Ave, has been designed to take full advantage of its tranquil outlook.
Clever use of windows throughout not only ensures the interior is full of natural light but they also frame the serene view from every angle. It also has super high ceilings which adds to the sense of space.
The home has a fantastic outdoor entertainment area
“Every person who has gone through the property has commented on its lovely feel,” said agent Jane Booty from Stone Real Estate, who will be auctioning the property next weekend.
“It is a very welcoming home and well positioned to Knightsbridge and all its amenities.”
The peaceful vista can be enjoyed from what its current owners — who are selling after 31 years — have nicknamed their Africa Room.
This second living area, decorated with artefacts from a holiday to Tanzania and Kenya, has cedar bi-fold doors connecting it to the outdoors.
Its collection of ornaments and paintings complement the hardwood floors and neutral colour scheme creating a sophisticated space for relaxing.
The formal dining room shares the double-sided fireplace
It shares a double-sided fireplace with the adjoining sunny formal dining room. Stackable doors lead to a large deck that runs along the rear of the home overlooking the bushland.
This is the perfect spot for entertaining friends and can accommodate both a table as well as an outdoor lounge.
Stairs lead down to the level lawn providing space for youngsters to run and play. There is even a creek nearby with tadpoles, turtles and bearded water dragons.
The private gardens have been designed for all seasons with courtyards positioned to capture the winter or summer sun.
The home has a massive deck running along the rear of the home
A deck, well screened by hedging, leads off from the main bedroom at the front of the house. This parent’s retreat also has plenty of wardrobe space and a luxurious ensuite featuring travertine tiling.
Two other bedrooms, both with built-ins, are on their own floor.
The kitchen is centrally located with gas cooking, granite countertops and glass splashback. It has integrated appliances and plenty of cupboard space. It has easy access to the outdoors for easy entertaining and adjoins the casual family meals area.
The elegant master retreat
Storage is in abundance in the laundry which also has his and her built-in hampers.
Underneath the home is a great oversized workshop and cellar but could be also used as an art studio or gym.
Other features include reverse airconditioning and a double garage.
The 728sq m property, which borders Castle Hill, is just 700m from the Knightsbridge Shopping Centre and close to Samuel Gilbert Primary School.
It will be just a five-minute drive to the future Showground Rd train station.
