Property descriptionLocated in the exclusive leafy suburb of Kenilworth, this 7,500 square feet Sir Herbert Baker homestead, circa 1893, is situated within a secure, single-entranced enclave. From the impressive, paved forecourt with four garages, one enters the imposing entrance hall. Beautiful reception rooms with high ceilings, teak floors, elegantly profiled skirting boards, dado rails and cornices, as well as original fireplaces, are exquisitely appointed and include a formal diningroom and lounge, plus an inviting family room situated off the gourmet kitchen. Doors lead to a large covered terrace, flanked by stack-back windows. From here, glorious views of the garden and surrounds can be enjoyed. Upstairs, four generously proportioned north-facing bedrooms each with an en suite, boast sash windows and shutters as does the quirky attic room. Noteworthy features include arched, lead paned windows, pressed ceilings, two majestic staircases, elegant chandeliers (a singularly lovely example hangs in the well-appointed Victorian styled main ensuite), a crowd-pleasing billardroom, a gentleman's study with bathroom and staff accommodation. The immaculately maintained garden with its level lawn is home to a luxurious pool with striking ornamental details. This secluded and private home truly represents quintessential elegant living. A Christie's International Real Estate Signature Program property.
