Nestled close to the tranquil Bill Pye Park, this charming home, tucked away and profoundly private, extends a rare quality of quietude. Rutherford Crescent, established in the 1940's under the influence of the Garden City Movement, is a captivating, peaceful enclave, in the heart of the coveted village of Ainslie. The home, is one of a pair, both unique houses, purpose built in 2000. With, light drenched, open living, kitchen, dining, opening to courtyard and mature cottage garden, rutherford.home presents a liveable footprint of home and garden.
Invisible from the street, rutherford.home sits at the rear of the block and is further enclosed and protected by established trees. Through a rose laden arch, paths curl around to a covered front porch - creating a magical sense of arrival.
The open living, dining and meal spaces encircle the kitchen, accommodating play, entertainment, eating, cooking, and relaxing all in the one light drenched area. This flexible space allows for family members to be together or find quiet spaces apart. There is enough space here to easily accommodate family and friends – dinner parties, informal gatherings, spilling into garden and the alfresco dining area.
A lovely bay window faces north, with views to established magnolia trees, a perfect spot to sit. And the gorgeous palette - white on white, artful pops of colour, warm bluegum timber flooring - proffers a feeling of delight, and an airy, lightness. Links to the garden are lovingly framed in every room, so there is a sense of being beckoned, invited visually and physically, into a kaleidoscope of changing blooms.
The kitchen is cleverly designed to maximise space and storage, and includes a generous marble bench, gas cooktop and Bosch dishwasher.
The bedrooms all have leafy outlooks. The master bedroom has ensuite and a walk-in-robe. There are two more bedrooms each with built-in robes, one of which is also equipped as a home office.
There is a family bathroom, separate laundry and lock-up garage.
The garden is a rambling celebration, artfully romantic, enchanting and deeply soothing. Enclosed by high lattice fences, it has a myriad of plantings that create a delightful, layering of space, shade and light including hydrangeas, roses, daphne and maples. A separate productive area has raised garden beds with raspberries, asparagus and fennel.
