Captivating cathedral ceilings in charismatic Kaleen

Built in 1989, this iconic home in Holley Place, Kaleen, speaks to the heart with plenty of grand architectural features.

Sales agent Ben Oostermeyer from Luton Kippax describes the home as captivating with its expansive interiors, especially its two segregated living spaces, which will be a drawcard for larger families.

“It’s a unique layout as well because you could say there are three levels or possibly four if you include the mezzanine above the master bedroom,” he explains.

“It captivates you the moment you walk through the front door. It has gigantic ceilings, which are repeated as you move up to the top level of the home.”


With 418 square metres of living area spread over a 1502 square metre block, there’s no shortage of space. It’s an entertainer’s delight with an indoor solar-heated swimming pool, various outdoor spaces suitable for gatherings, and an indoor and outdoor wine cellar.

“There is a strong Italian provenance here, and I think it was built so well in the beginning that it never really needed changing.

“Everything has been done properly to the fullest extent, and the owners were committed to the decor of the home, so it’s a complete package.”

Ben says the kitchen is a standout, with its walk-in pantry, 900 mm cooktop, significant storage and vast size.

“This is a big kitchen. To me, it just looks like the perfect country kitchen large enough to easily fit the whole extended family.

“Inspections so far have recognised the size and unique values of the house. Some people have commented the house has drawn them into an area they wouldn’t normally be looking. They’ve said it’s the house itself that has connected with their hearts.”


There are five bedrooms and five bathrooms, with an opulent and palatial main bedroom and bathroom. The main kitchen is on the upper level, and a second kitchen, a rumpus area, and three bedrooms are on the lower level.

You access the indoor pool, set to the rear of the home, from the lower-level rumpus area.

“It’s a pretty amazing home. One of my favourite parts is the entrance, but the indoor pool is so impressive because of its construction. The main kitchen just adds another wow to the overall appeal.”


Ben says new owners can update to their taste in time, with kitchens and bathrooms the probable starting points. However, one of the home’s virtues is that no urgent upgrades are required.

“It’s a solid property. It’s very versatile and will be perfect for multi-generational families or those wanting additional privacy.”

Outside, there are low-maintenance and mature gardens. There is a four-car garage with internal access, a rear roller door through to the back yard, as well as attic storage above the garage, in addition to off-street parking for two more cars.

“The block borders a reserve, and there are equestrian paddocks on the other side. It’s a very quiet street and sits to the east of the Kaleen Primary School, making it convenient to go to that school and the nearby high school.

“It’s practically inner north, so it’s positioned really well.”

Holley Place, Kaleen is for sale by negotiation.
