I came across this lovely home, 'Karinya', Turramurra located on Sydney's North Shore - I particularly love the master bedrooom windows, and the swim spa with the outdoor dining...when can I move in!
'Everywhere you look and from every angle of this property there is a picture worth painting. Named 'Karinya' meaning 'peaceful home', charm, character, style and space keynote this expansive double brick executive residence that has all the modern convenience and freshness you would expect in a 9 years young house.'
'Feelings of openness and prosperity have been achieved through a harmonious blend of historical elements. Enjoy the wide Colonial wraparound verandah, the Queen Anne bay window, rosettas and pendant lighting, decorative fireplace, a light and large country kitchen, beautiful Brushbox timber floorboards and good old fashioned 9ft (2.7m) high ceilings.
The home has 5 spacious bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and is positioned on a 1126sqm approx corner block to allow wide tracts of light and airy green space around it. High calibre S/S appliances in the open plan kitchen include an Ilve 900mm oven, rangehood, 5 burner gas cooktop and an Asko dishwasher. There are plenty of cupboards and drawers to store all your precious crockery, glassware and cookwear, and to create gastronomic sensations on the timber island and granite benches. A place of great relaxation, the massive 28sqm approx BBQ pavilion, with plantation shutters, accommodates a 5m approx long bench with cupboards, drawers, a hutch for a bar fridge and a Grand Turbo Jetmaster BBQ with 6 burners and Rotisserie. The master bedroom looks out to a perfumed parterre garden, winding pathway and bird fountain where lorikeets, doves, magpies, cockatoos, galahs and kookaburras visit.
A total of 346sqm approx of accommodation include a 35sqm SLUG and workshop and a triple carport. The garaging adjoins the Swim Spa pool and enormous family room, which together provide extensive partying space.The 125sqm approx downstairs incorporates a large home theatre/family room, home office area, sewing room, queen bedroom, walk-in-robe, home gym/cellar, 2 services/storage rooms, huge laundry and a bathroom. Included are the data projector and surround sound system, two separate Foxtel lines, gas heating and air conditioner cooling ducted throughout the house and 4 large water tanks to water the garden.
The Swim Spa (jetstream resistance lap pool) uses an ozone system rather than chlorine. In a great location, it’s only minutes to either St Ives or Turramurra shopping villages, and to Bobbin Head for watersports, bushwalking and picnics. This property offers all the pleasures of resort living with the ambience of a warm and comfortable family home, near quality private schools and with an oval, play park, 2 tennis courts and bus stops at the end of the street.'
