QUINTESSENTIAL QUARRY HILL
Taking pride of place on a huge 1000m² approx. allotment a mere stone's throw from the CBD, this family classic is big, bold & beautiful in every way.
The original 1900's home had another chapter added to its story after a "no-expense spared" renovation & extension in 2005. The work of heritage renovation specialists, GA & PA Pilcher, it received a major Housing Industry Award & appeared on the pages of the Luxury Home Design magazine.
This perfect partnering of the existing home & extension has created a spacious family home with definite child & adult areas.
The original section opens off the wide iron-lace trimmed front verandah to the classic central hallway with 3.6m ceilings & polished timber floors where 4 bedrooms, some with original open fireplaces & built in robes make up the perfect teen wing. They can also claim the large family room complete with built-in television & bookshelves at the end of the hallway & main bathroom featuring claw foot bath, shower & vanity.
A clever walk-in storage/mudroom off the laundry makes all the boots, coats, sporting & camping equipment a family acquires disappear & the storage-rich laundry includes benches & external access.

The adjoining dining area, where tall bifold glass doors slide back to reveal enviable outdoor living spaces, is ready to accommodate a crowd when the occasion calls. The extension incorporates a huge lounge, main bedroom, upstairs rumpus/teen retreat & ground- level home office.
Spread out in style with family & friends in the huge lounge with French door access to the alfresco area & rear garden while the main bedroom overlooks the front gardens & encompasses modern ensuite & walk-in robes.
