A property as rare and unique as Thornleigh comes once in a lifetime. This Heritage Award-winning home has been lovingly restored and renovated, combining quality Victorian aesthetic with a masterful modern extension. Complete with stained glass windows, original Baltic pine floorboards and encircled by beautifully landscaped gardens, this extraordinary home provides a seamless blend of contemporary design with 1880's grandeur. There are two separate residences on the 1332m2 corner block, providing a range of options for the buyer who falls in love with this beautiful home.
Both residences have undergone an impressive restoration in the past seven years, retaining the original 1880's character throughout.
The extravagant Master bedroom has built-in wardrobes featuring traditional oriental designs hand painted by a renowned Chinese artist. The original working fireplace, an ornate ceiling rose and intricate cornice detail complete this beautiful room.
The renewed bathroom is complete with claw bath, vanity and period finishes.
Artisan-designed floor to ceiling bookshelves, and an original working fireplace give the stunningly decorated study an old world feeling. A perfect place for relaxing, working or reading.
A light-filled passage connects the original old building to the new heritage-award-winning extension, where the quality of craftsmanship and incredible stained glass feature windows will impress you instantly.
Hand picked solid redgum benches are a highlight in the spacious kitchen, which has a large walk-in pantry and quality inclusions. The kitchen merges into the open plan dining/living area where the soaring cathedral ceiling, baltic pine timber floors and French paned windows create a wonderful feeling of space and light.
A spiral staircase takes you to the spacious mezzanine overlooking the spectacular stained glass windows. This floor can be used as another living space, a bedroom, or just a peaceful place to sit and enjoy the views and space created.
From here you walk up the custom-made spiral staircase to your very own Turret! A place to spend long afternoons overlooking Bungendore's stunning sunsets with a cool drink or just a space to get away.
The Cottage home is another step back in time and is beautifully renovated. It offers two bedrooms, two living areas and a large timber kitchen complete with gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher and plenty of storage and bench space. This home offers so many possibilities. It could be extra accommodation for family, a teenage retreat, a home business or it would provide an excellent AirBnB opportunity!
Attached to the garage and workshop is a sun drenched artists studio which looks out over the central courtyard garden between the two houses.
Here we feature the original Mulberry tree that still fruits every year and provides a stunning backdrop for both homes.
This rare and unique home comes to Auction on 22nd August AT 2PM and we look forward to your inspection.
