Stunning family home blends period charm with contemporary style

* This beautifully presented Californian Bungalow has been extended and updated to accommodate a large modern family, while still retaining every inch of its original period charm. With polished floorboards, high ornate ceilings, elegant period French doors, bay windows, paint rails, a fireplace and generously proportioned rooms, this stunning family home ticks all the boxes for old world style and modern convenience.
* Cleverly designed over three split levels with a good northerly aspect, the main ground level retains all the charm of the original bungalow with its spacious main bedroom featuring a bay window seat and discrete white built-ins. On this level, there's also another bedroom, currently serving as a study and a large formal living area that adjoins a stunning dining room via sliding double doors at one end and a bay shaped sunroom through period French doors at the other.
* Both the kitchen and bathroom have been elegantly updated in keeping with the period style of the original home.
* The spacious kitchen features granite bench tops and splashbacks, 5 burner SS Blanco oven and cook top, F&P dishwasher, loads of cupboard space and could easily accommodate another casual dining space. Continuing the consistent look of the house, the kitchen opens via double French doors to a north-east facing deck and access to the manicured gardens and large outdoor spa.
* Upstairs a modern addition keeps the theme consistent, with ornate ceilings and charming period style - a bay window at the top of the stairs, two bedrooms adjoined by a two-way ensuite with bath and another casual sitting area that opens to a balcony with views to St Patrick's and Harbour glimpses over North Head.
* Downstairs, there's a large family laundry, another casual sitting area, currently serving as a TV room, and access to under-house storage in the sandstone foundations: offering good head height it's just begging to be transformed into a wine-lover's cellar.
* Also featuring a, secure, enclosed front yard and double lockup garage, this stunning residence in a leafy, quiet street of a sought-after convenient area in prestigious Balgowlah has a unique charm all its own.
