Renovated Glenhaven home offers an idyllic lifestyle
It is not surprising this glamorous Glenhaven home has been used as a photographic location for a popular online homeware retailer.
The 910 sqm property at 118 Glenhaven Rd has undergone a recent transformation from its stone letterbox at the front to the pretty garden at the rear.
Its current owner, an interior designer, has turned what was a partially renovated 1990-built residence into what looks like a brand new home.
The light-filled interior has been opened up with a Scandinavian feel featuring beautiful white oak timber floorboards and neutral colour scheme.
Agent Steve Ford from LJ Hooker Dural has just listed the single level property to be auctioned on August 3.
“It has the perfect fusion of indoor and outdoor, while the flexible floorplan offers a range options,” he said.
“There is potential for in-law accommodation or a home office all under the one roofline.”
New stainless steel appliances were added to the kitchen — one of the few areas of the home that didn’t need changing. It has a freestanding cooker, an island bench which doubles as a breakfast bar and a spacious walk-in pantry concealed behind what looks like an ordinary cupboard door.
The layout of the home flows through to a sublime outdoor entertaining area, which is accessed through sliding glass doors. Himalayan white sandstone wraps around the alfresco dining area and the in-ground heated mineral swimming pool.
A blade waterfall cascades from the quartz feature wall into the pool, adding to the tranquillity of the rear garden. Screened by mature hedging for added privacy, this is a great backyard for families with its level lawn.
The terrace comes alive in the evening with a canopy of fairy lights set above the outdoor table — it is a idyllic spot to share a meal on a warm evening.
The outdoor area was used as a location for the summer catalogue of retailer Temple & Webster.
In total, there are four bedrooms — one which is suitable as guest accommodation. The home’s amazing master retreat was created by combining what was originally two rooms.
The vast space is large enough to fit a four poster bed and also has a reading area. Completing this sanctuary is an ensuite, a walk-in wardrobe and plush carpets.
The new layout creates a range of opportunities with both a family room and separate rumpus with additional kitchen.
The property is a short walk to both the local shops, popular primary school and sports grounds.
