Grand terrace with guesthouse on Queens Park
Set directly opposite the vast green expanse of Queens Park, 'Westbourne' is a grandly proportioned terrace lovingly revived with immense regard for its heritage. Freestanding to one side so it's bathed in natural light, the timelessly elegant residence enjoys additional access from the tree-lined cul-de-sac of Centennial Avenue.
It contains three generous bedrooms and two marble bathrooms, including a private master wing with an ensuite, dressing room/study and Juliet balcony. A spacious self-contained guesthouse above the garage provides the perfect retreat for teenagers or au pairs, with its own bathroom, kitchenette and established income-earning potential.
Refined formal lounge and dining space retains all of its grandeur, with soaring ceilings and marble fireplaces. At the heart of the home lies a chic Miele gas kitchen with a CaesarStone breakfast bar, extending to ambient casual living space. Blessed with an easy indoor/outdoor flow, it extends to a wonderfully private garden sanctuary with an expanse of level lawn. An additional central courtyard adds to the bright, breezy ambience.
Classic details such as timber floorboards, ornate cornices, tessellated tiled verandahs, leadlight windows and French doors add immense charm and appeal. More contemporary touches include custom cabinetry, plantation shutters, double glazed windows, Jet Master gas heaters, ducted a/c and an alarm.
Note: The spacious self-contained guesthouse has a strong rental history and is currently listed on Airbnb achieving $1,000.00 per week. Income statements available.
