(For a better viewing experience, click on SOCIAL VIDEO, STYLING, FEATURE EDITORIALS and #9 TODAY SHOW).
Architecturally designed, the "Temple of Mood' is, meticulously fashioned with a gorgeous sense of fun.
Detailed without compromise, this home continues to surprise. Blending a serene Moroccan master bedroom and outdoor "Tiki Bar" and Spa, with the sensational pop of pink in the Alice in Wonderland kitchen and castle-styled Grand Hall.
Upon arrival, you are welcomed by a substantial brick and wrought iron fence, impressive brick facade, arched windows, remote double gated & blue stone driveway. Cross the landscaped garden, to the arched front door with wrought iron hinges that truly hints at the sensational surprise within. (Your thumb print and code needed for entry.)
On first glimpse, you'll step onto exquisite imported Italian parquetry tiles and sight an iron chandelier themed in the style of the front gates, substantial high quality drapes and exposed black beams with a timber panelled ceiling.
Wow, you say, this is something quite special, but perhaps you expected this when you knew it was designed as a Grand Hall.
The details emerge in style, within this vast entertaining lounge with integrated surround sound and projector-ready mounts, the feature wall as you might expect in an ancient castle, a mezzanine chic black parlour-library with cast iron chandelier, boutique wallpaper, floor to ceiling bookshelves, gas fireplace, split system A/c, skylight and a concealed pet entry.
The door opens to an industrial "steampunk styled" games room, with block out blinds and optional blue UV lighting, making it the perfect escape for a study, studio, dark room, office or to simply indulge in computer games of another world.
The chef's kitchen is extraordinary and spectacular, themed to Alice in Wonderland's Tea Party with hot pink cabinetry and black marble bench tops!
Fitments include a Belling 3-door cast iron hot pink oven (includes baking oven), with induction cook top, A/c, integrated SMEG dishwasher and themed 2-door SMEG fridge, large custom sink with insinkerator, black and white tiled splash backs & chequer board floors and themed Wonderland lighting.
Adjacent to the kitchen, a wall of exceptional storage cupboards or pantry themed using playing cards featuring Aces, Kings and Queens. The side entrance to a caged and roofed secure pet run with shelves for plants or pets with two lockable pet door entries.
The master bedroom which was originally two bedrooms, has been transformed into an exceptional Moroccan Boudoir sanctuary, with an exquisite Moroccan themed bedhead feature wall of blue with a silver niche shelf which conceals the full room width walk through robe behind. There's also a built in robe and sliding doors with a gorgeous outlook and breezeway to a paved and entirely private courtyard with built-in Moroccan spa, garden beds and Tiki bar.
The Moroccan bathroom is equally luxurious with fitments featuring stunning floor and wall tiles, matching copper freestanding bath and twin custom vanity sinks with stone bench tops, imported tap ware, open glassed shower with hand shower head and overhead rain shower head,, skylight, wall mounted floating toilet and an important detail of the wall-mounted bath tea-candle shelf.
There's a second bedroom is themed as the Enchanted Forest. Leading from the Grand Hall with sliding doors and an outlook to its own private courtyard. The Italian parquetry flooring, skylight, bi-fold doors, TV mount, custom Swedish artist 3 wall mural and split system A/C provide a sanctuary away from the rest of the house.
Entry via Grant Avenue, as the second street frontage, to a vast remote garage for two cars, workshop shelving, heavy-duty block and tackle on a steel beam and a large hose reel. Ideally suited as a party room this garage houses the laundry and Harry Potter themed bathroom.
Superbly located a short walk to the Altona beachfront, Mount St Joseph's Girls College, Altona and Queen of Peace Primary Schools, Westona Train station, a plethora of parks and cycling trails, shops, Kooringal Gold Club and easy access to the Westgate freeway and CBD.
