Pure elegance

IN another lifetime I would wander across to Macaulay Park in Inglewood with the intellectually disabled kids from Brighton Hostel.

The multi-bed hostel closed a while back—the residents moved to more family-style group homes—making way for a boutique housing estate that includes this Macaulay Crescent abode.

Sitting on 363sqm, the two-storey home is the epitome of relaxed elegance, with plenty of room for a growing family.

There’s a nod to federation architecture throughout, with decorative plaster arches and lovely ceiling roses.

A sweep of golden timber flooring is a warm welcome as you step through the leadlight front door.

The adjacent formal lounge, with its ceiling rose and gas-powered log fire, could just as easily be a great study.

Huge windows in the living/kitchen area ensure plenty of natural light, and beveled glass french doors open onto a generous dining area.

Sparkling white cupboards in the huge kitchen, with a walk-in-pantry, are topped by caramel-brown granite tops—a warm tone that picks up the honey gold of the timber floor.

The compact garden is sheltered by high fences and banks of trees budding in anticipation of spring.

There are two peaked-roofed sitting areas: one sheltering the barbecue, the other making for elegant alfresco dining.

Wrought-iron and timber stairs lead to the second level with its sitting area and four, queen-sized bedrooms.

The main is huge with room for a couch, walk-in-robe, and a generous black and white federation ensuite.
