A Home You Can Grow Into!

Built in 1917 for Hugh Caughey, whose aunt and father founded the Smith & Caughey department store in Queen St, the meticulously maintained 402sq m brick-and-stucco home, originally surrounded by several acres of land, now sits on a private, 817m2 elevated site.

Upon entering the home one steps into a grand cedar panelled entranceway off which the study, dining room, living room and French provincial-style kitchen flow. A separate butlers pantry and laundry flows from the kitchen and offers a great prep area. Spacious and light the kitchen flows effortlessly out onto a north-facing beautiful paved courtyard with outdoor fireplace. The manicured gardens wrap around the western and southern sides of the house. A sunroom at the eastern end of the house on this level is bathed in morning light and looks out to One Tree Hill. The dining room with its own fireplace is large and has seen many a dinner party. The living room has wonderful city views and also enjoys a wonderful wood fireplace.

From the entranceway, you ascend a cedar staircase to the top level where the main bathroom, three double bedrooms, one with its own, north-facing balcony, and a master bedroom are . The master suite enjoys a large walk in wardrobe and a second closet. There is a bay window where you can just relax and enjoy the sun and the amazing view. The en suite concludes this wonderful parents retreat.

The ground level area of the home, which has its own external entrance, includes a rumpus/media room, kitchenette and separate W.C. There is also direct internal access to a double garage and small workshop. Opening out to the paved courtyard, this a perfect area for guests or family.

Lovely and warm with gas central heating this robust home with its splendid architecture is just waiting for the next family to step in and enjoy every space as the current family have.
