Grand 1930s California bungalow with pool
Meticulously revived with enormous respect for its 1930s heritage, this magnificent California bungalow is one of Kensington’s finest properties. Privately nestled in a serene cul-de-sac just moments from the Australian Golf Club, it’s set on an elevated 549sqm parcel of land amid beautifully landscaped gardens. The expansive three-storey home offers an abundance of accommodation and living space, superb alfresco areas and a host of classic features, with views towards Botany Bay from its upper level.
It contains five bedrooms, the main with a dressing room, along with a study, two elegant bathrooms and a powder room. Living space comprises magnificent formal rooms with soaring ornate ceilings and a gas fire, a generous family room and a granite gas kitchen with a walk-in pantry. It enjoys level access to a charming gazebo, manicured lawn and a solar-heated pool.
Traditional details such as floorboards, bay windows, ornate cornices and leadlight windows add enormous appeal. Additional features include ducted gas heating, reverse cycle air-conditioning, an alarm, plantation shutters, Foxtel, automatic garden watering, integrated outdoor sound, a wine cellar/storage, gas barbeque bayonet, double garaging with internal access and a car space.
An exceptional family sanctuary, it’s a brief walk to UNSW, Randwick Racecourse and local village shops.
