Property Description

Unparalleled amenities the moment you enter this meticulous renovation of a Victorian single family home in the heart of the Gold Coast. Every detail has been considered in this urban oasis and the care and craftsmanship is evident throughout. Generous 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath with an expansive and uniquely open floor plan that brings light in from 4 exposures. Thoughtfully selected designer finishes with a modern flair that encompasses keen attention to the preservation of the vintage origins. Originally built in 1895, the home was restored from top to bottom in an extensive gut renovation including everything but the existing brick exterior walls. Heated floors on the lower level and snowmelt on the front steps. All doors and newel posts were salvaged from antique stores, stripped, and incorporated into the design of the home, baseboards and casings were custom designed and installed, all crown moldings are custom plaster and a new copper mansard roof was installed. New 5" oak hardwood flooring throughout with a custom stain crafted on site. Steel beams and doubling of all floor joists. The living room overlooks a quiet tree-lined street from the expansive Marvin windows and features high ceilings, a hand-carved French limestone fireplace and leads to a dining room ideal for entertaining that boasts a second hand-carved French limestone fireplace and Murano glass chandelier. The show-stopping custom-designed staircase is a centerpiece throughout the home and features the newel posts, each one is different and unique. The railings and iron spindles are new. A fully outfitted gourmet kitchen surpasses the expectations of the most discerning chef. Gray Opera marble countertops and backsplash throughout and a large center island with room for 4 stools. The cabinetry is custom made and hand-painted from Australia. Professional high-end stainless steel appliances include Wolf range and Wolf hood fan, Miele steam oven and Bosch dishwasher. Travertine tile floors in a herringbone pattern lead to a balcony perfect for al fresco dining. Off the kitchen is an office nook perfect for attending to bills or a kids homework area.
