Kensington 16 Eastern Avenue
A Private Family Haven With A Pool, Putting Green And Parent's Retreat
The flawless reinvention of one of Kensington's signature double-fronted 1920s residences has injected a sense of light and vitality into the home with a pavilion-style extension that opens out to a landscaped poolside oasis that's dedicated to fun complete with a premium putting green by South West Greens. Surrounded by established gardens affording an incredible sense of privacy, the two-storey home is positioned at the coveted northern end of the avenue on over 575sqm with a family focused layout featuring a parent's retreat with a sun-filled home office and a separate media room for cosy family nights. The original front of the home retains its period grandeur with a wide central hallway, elegant bay windows and high ceilings while an entertainer's island kitchen serves as the social heart. Designed with sustainability at its core, this five-bedroom home has a 7.8kW solar power system, three-phase power and zoned reverse cycle air for year-round comfort. With leafy green outlooks from every room and only the finest fixtures and finishes, this is a home that has been crafted to stand the test of time in a tightly held neighbourhood on the edge of the Australian Golf Club. Country like seclusion combines with superb convenience, 450m to Kensington Park's oval and tennis courts and 750m to the light rail and UNSW campus.
