Rooms with a view

Calling all lovers of character, charm and olde world craftsmanship. This stately Durie Hill home boasts stunning views from river to sea from almost every room. Built in the 1920s for local lawyer and patron of the arts Louis Cohen, this expansive residence has retained the grandeur and elegance of its day with soaring ceilings, polished timber floors, leadlight windows and seven feature fireplaces. Downstairs showcases an impressive entry foyer with bevelled glass doors through to the formal living room and a gorgeous light-filled sunroom. Also on this level is the downstairs bathroom with walk-in shower, and the fifth bedroom/study/media room. An unusual octagonal wood-panelled dining room adjoins the gourmet kitchen (with informal dining space) at the rear, cleverly designed to complement the style of the home. The kitchen opens onto a large private deck for alfresco entertaining. Miniature bronzes cap the newel posts of the impressive staircase leading to the Belvedere verandah and the four upstairs bedrooms and second bathroom. The current master bedroom has spectacular views and its own dressing room, or take ownership of the other equally large boudoir with its own living room plus sunroom and similarly captivating vistas. Heated by a quality central heating system, with two fireplaces converted to gas, you have gas Infinity hot water and basement workshop/storage. Vehicle access is via your own private driveway from Allison Street to a double carport with additional off-street parking. Take advantage of sharp new pricing that should leave enough in the kitty for any improvements you might like to make. Call us now to secure this once in a lifetime opportunity.
