THIS Mt Lawley new build won a Stirling council history and heritage award for respecting its historic environment.
It’s a stunning townhouse set over three levels with five bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Quality features include lovely stained glass in the front door–which looks like it was created a century ago–beautiful marble benchtops in the kitchen and bathrooms, five-inch jarrah floorboards and just enough ceiling roses to avoid being a cliche.
Recessed ceilings in the massive open plan add a touch of old world grandeur in an otherwise uber-modern space.
The spacious kitchen has a huge marble island and an integrated dishwasher.
The black Smeg cooker is a monster with two ovens and there’s a built-in-coffee machine nearby.
They contrast nicely with the white cupboards and drawers, including a set flanking the oven for spices.
Light floods in windows either side of the ornate recess for the oven, and there’s a butler’s pantry/laundry next door.
High brick walls ensure the al fresco courtyard is private and protected from the weather, and the built-in-barbeque kitchen makes it perfect for entertaining.
One of the bedrooms, with walk-in-robes and en suite, is on the ground floor, with three more on the second level, including the massive main.
The spacious en suite has two sets of marble-topped vanities flanking a deep bath, and there are his-and-hers walk-in-robes.
A generous sitting room/theatre room and kitchenette add to the opulent feel.
The top level is a teenage or kids retreat with a bedroom, en suite and a huge play area under the eaves.
Situated on Wenberi Lane, there’s lots of shops, cafes and bars nearby on Beaufort Street.
