15 Drewett Street, SURREY HILLS
Endearing Family Sanctuary
Built in 1922, this utterly endearing and superbly maintained historic property evokes an immediate sense of family-minded sanctuary. Admirably considered spaces, distinct period features and an overall idyllic ambience afford it a ‘dream home’ title. Set back from a quaint residential street, the stunning period façade is enveloped in a beautifully maintained front garden complete with meticulously kept hedging. Beyond the crimson leadlight front door, a compelling combination of affluence and charm begins to emerge as one passes through the initial lounge into a spectacular open-plan living area.
The grand space includes a luxurious shaker-style kitchen finished to perfection. With the finest quality cabinetry, stunning leadlight windows overlooking the back garden, period-style fixtures, and a sizeable butler’s pantry, it’s the ultimate domestic haven. Further enhancing this stunning living zone is an adjoining study, traditional open fireplace, timber floorboards, and two sets of double doors that open out to a decked alfresco. Partly shrouded by an established vine, the undercover deck enjoys views of the spacious back garden and pool/spa area. Outside, the property also boasts a remarkable second dwelling. Located at the rear of the plot, this two-storey self-serviced abode beautifully mimics the original home’s period characteristics. Intended as a potential rental or teenager’s retreat, the first floor comprises a large central living area with kitchenette, a stunning bedroom with built-in robes and double doors opening out to the back garden, contemporary bathroom, and under-stair laundry space. Upstairs is a spacious study and light-filled second bedroom adorned with stylish feature wall, plush carpet and walk-in wardrobe. Back within the original dwelling are three additional downstairs bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes, plush carpets, and stunning leadlight windows. The third is sweetened by double-door access to the home’s delightful front verandah and all three bedrooms are serviced by a central country-style bathroom complete with tub. Upon ascending the statement jarrah staircase, a master retreat with statement ceilings, ensuite and double-door accessed balcony offers an idyllic in-house escape. Ideally located within close proximity to Presbyterian Ladies’ College, Deakin University and Wattle Park Golf Course, this immaculate family-minded home has been perfectly primed for the unfolding of one of your family’s most memorable chapters.
