Every once in a while a home that boasts both elegance and history comes to the market. One that offers an unheard of 1220sqm of prime, blue chip land with city views and a yard perfect for kids, pets and entertaining alike.
Whether you want to raise the next cricket captain or host parties under the trees or even a marquee, this expansive block can cater for it all. This isn't to say this grand old dame can't accommodate for significant gatherings, with the rear deck boasting an incredbile 10m length and connects seamlessly to the kitchen and bathroom.
Steeped in history and constructed in 1928, Tooroonga has had less than a handful of owners, tightly held and lovingly cared for over the last century whilst each owner has made improvements along the way.
The versatile and incredibly spacious floorplan accommodates for all families of any stage. The palatial master has its own retreat, ensuite and walk-in robe and truly encapsulates the charm of the old world via the bay window, rich timber fret work and lead light windows.
The childrens' wing is cleverly located at the rear of the home and features 3 bedrooms with their own bathroom plus a study nook/library. There is also an additional bedroom upstairs accessible via the living area which is perfect for a teenager wanting their own space.
Downstairs has been utilised in recent times as a study, rumpus and seperate granny flat perfect for grandma, the twenty-something that won't leave the nest or simply Hotel Highcrest for when family come to visit.
The versatility of this home is only rivalled by its style and charm. The chefs' kitchen fuses the original charm of the home with modern conveniences and the grandure of this abode becomes evident the minute you walk in the door, from the city views that are visible from the entrance to the chandeliers and formal living/dining rooms.
In the age where blocks are being divided and becoming smaller by the day, this protected trophy home offers so much others will never be able to. Nothing will be able to replace watching your kids run around theh backyard, hosting 21st's and even wedding receptions in your own home all whilst being less than 1 minute to Westfield Chermside.
