Gracious Cape Dutch style home in sought-after Dunkeld
Situated in one of Dunkeld’s finest roads, sits this beautiful Cape Dutch homestead dating back to the 1920’s. Single storey with a charming farmhouse feel, the owners have cleverly updated all the bathrooms and kitchen in the main house, as well as built an entire guest bedroom suite, all in keeping with the original Cape Dutch style of this striking home. This property is a tranquil haven in the heart of suburbia and offers all the benefits of its central location, an opportunity to enjoy community inspired living in a suburb where neighbours support each other and work together to create a relaxed and safe environment..
From the wooden front door, one walks in to the spacious entrance hall through to the formal sitting room with a wood-burning fireplace and on to the welcoming, wide verandah, which flows out to the glorious lawn and garden with a pool. The superbly appointed kitchen is open to the cosy TV room making it the ideal place to prepare and eat meals and spend time as a family. Positioned close to the kitchen is a separate dining room which calls for gracious dinner parties! Off the kitchen is a scullery area and separate pantry. There is also a well-sized study and guest cloakroom.
The bedroom section of the main house consists of a spacious main en-suite bedroom with a wood-burning fireplace and an adjoining room which is ideal as a nursery or sewing room. Two further bedrooms in the main house have generous proportions and share a bathroom. The spacious guest cottage has high rafters and sash windows on three sides which give amazing views over the beautiful garden. With its own separate entrance it is the perfect space for an older child to live or for guests to stay over.
Wonderful flow and generous spaces, wood-burning fireplaces, parquet flooring, wooden beams, doors with lead glass windows are just some of the unique features of this stylish, traditional home. Positioned on a larger than normal Dunkeld stand, the home is surrounded on all sides by the gorgeous treed garden which also has a veggie garden and a fish pond.
Staff accommodation consists of 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, 2 toilets and a living room. There is a separate laundry room, two garages and plenty of off-street parking.
