A long cherished exemplary residence of blue-chip Ascot, LANCASTER presents a rare and unrivalled market opportunity to those for whom only the best will suffice. Masterfully updated to provide five star modern living whilst embracing its classic architectural heritage, this circa 1930’s residence presents a home of unparalleled grace and finesse.
Perched on a spacious 825m2 North-East facing block with a stately street presence, double doors open to reveal a grand interior with sweeping staircase and chandelier ensuring timeless resplendence. Invoking the finery of years gone by, distinguishing character features have been lovingly maintained with ornate architraves, crafted ceilings and timber work present throughout.
French doors guide you into three esteemed zones – a formal dining, formal lounge and library each providing elegant living and dining provisions whilst featuring exquisite leadlight windows, art deco fireplace, chandeliers and custom timber cabinetry.
An extension at the rear seamlessly transitions the occupants into a contemporary zone that provides the best of functionality for modern living whilst maintaining the integrity of the character home. A massive kitchen integrates the zones impeccably – a colossal amount of crisp cabinetry storage sitting in conjunction with gourmet appliances with a vast waterfall stone island bench stretching from end to end. Filled with an abundance of natural light and with brilliant indoor/outdoor flow, a large rear living room opens up to a spectacular outdoor entertaining area bordered by a stretch of timber bi-fold doors. Overlooking pristine landscaped surrounds with sparkling landscaped in-ground pool, summer days have never looked so good!
Premier accommodation is provided courtesy of four large bedrooms located on a private upper level with a fifth downstairs. The master is of palatial standards with a large private ensuite, walk-in robe and sitting room all in plush style. Two additional large full sized bathrooms service the remainder of the household impeccably.
Providing exemplary au pair’s quarters or multi-generational living solutions, a fully equipped pool house stands separate to the main residence. Generous in proportions and presented with contemporary style, there is a spacious living area, loft bedroom, kitchenette and ensuite at your disposal.
