Timeless elegance, epic family proportions and unsurpassed convenience summarises this sprawling four-bedroom + study, three bathroom residence which sits on an enormous 650m2 parcel of land. Masterfully constructed by an artisan builder for an Italian couple in 1982 and immaculately maintained by the same family ever since, it was their grand vision to create a proud family home with enduring authenticity to stand the test of time – and that it did.

They asked the big questions about value – contemplating the purpose this home would have in serving their vibrant inner-city family lifestyle. They sought a striking street presence, indulgence, luxury, multiple living zones and sensory schemes resistant to the tides of trends. Ingrained in every design decision was their guiding philosophy, to build a home for peaceful living and effortless entertaining with architectural originality.

The final result: An unmissable opportunity to buy a showpiece vision of perfection nestled in one of the most revered of local pockets in the prestigious Avondale Park precinct. This very special home is destined to make another family so very happy once again.


As you drive down tranquil and tree lined Thackeray Quadrant a grand façade with landscaped surrounds creates an awe-inspiring first impression and signals your arrival in a truly remarkable home. But it’s once you are inside that you’ll truly fall in love.

Beyond the double front doors, you’re met with an ultra-wide formal entrance with soaring ceilings featuring an exquisite chandelier. In front of you a decedent timber staircase with elegant curves. To your left is a private and designated study space, thoughtfully tucked away from the rest of the floor-plan, here you can work with ease from the comfort of your own home.

To your right, a splendorous light-filled formal lounge with flowing polished hardwood timber floors, high ceilings with detailed cornices, garden vistas and gorgeous curved archway that leads into the formal dining room. Curves are a signature theme that continues through-out the entire home.

The homes allure continues with a large second lounge room (previously used as the billiard room but could be utilised as a home cinema or convenient 5th bedroom) and it provides internal access to the double garage which also features a large storage room.

The heart of the home is the expansive open-plan meals area with adjoining blackwood kitchen. A functional culinary stage with gas 900mm cooktop and double gas wall oven-pantry and plenty of bench and cabinet space. Here family and friends gather, it’s the beginning of each day and the centre of every party.

To create the ultimate free flowing space from inside out, the kitchen and dining blends seamlessly with the homes outdoor covered alfresco area, perfect for entertaining friends and family in style in the summer months and deep rear garden vistas with sliding glass panel doors opening up to one side. The established garden features lemon, mandarin, pomegranate, persimmons, olive and almond trees. Downstairs also features a full bathroom with shower and w/c and separate massive laundry with big storage cupboard.

Upstairs is devoted as your quiet sanctuary; with a palpable mood of tranquillity throughout. Here resides the Master Bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom and walk-in robe. It exudes warmth with natural tones and tactile elements creating a sense of calm. There is also mesmerising main bathroom with floor to ceiling artisan tiles, double sink vanity with arched gestures, statement cream resin benchtop, shower, toilet and bidet and a large separate bath.
