Manicured hedges, mature orange, lemon and grapefruit trees, fruiting figs, apricots, plum and pears, cherries, persimmons, almond and olive trees, a vegetable garden ready for you to plant with your favourite seasonal vegetables … the garden surrounding the five-bedroom, three-bathroom home at 27 Gawler Crescent in Deakin gives only a hint at what is inside this beautifully renovated and extended home.

Set on a 986 square metre block, the home was renovated and extended in 2011 to bring it stylishly up to date, and suitable for a large family looking for an executive residence with a prestige address.

The magnificent street presence is matched by the interior.

The lush, green outdoor areas are set into separate ‘rooms’, with space to relax with guests, with the family or, if in need of time out, on your own. Manicured hedges, the fruit orchard and alfresco dining areas surround the home, giving the lucky owners a choice of differently zoned spaces. Entertaining will be easy on the large outdoor alfresco deck, equipped with overhead lights and fan, while the front terrace with travertine tiling and established hedge gardens is a calming, peaceful retreat.

The master suite is upstairs, with a sitting room, bedroom, ensuite, walk-in robe, kitchenette, study and balcony – a genuine retreat with no reason to go down the stairs to the children’s ‘wing’, except to tend to their needs (or break up a squabble).

The ground floor of the home has four bedrooms, a family bathroom and an ensuite. There’s plenty of living space with a dining and family room, and a very stylish double-sided fireplace and separate living area for the children’s zone. The kitchen is Hamptons-inspired, with a double Siemens oven, Highland gas cooktop, Qasair rangehood and a built-in Miele dishwasher. The walk-in pantry is enormous, with plenty of storage space, as is the laundry, which has benchtops and cupboards in addition to room for white goods and external access.

Berkely Residential sales agent Simon Richards said the home is ideal for a family looking for an executive home in a prestigious suburb, and that properties in Deakin that are renovated and extended with such beautiful established gardens are rare to the market.

“It’s not often you find such a beautiful family home in such a desirable suburb,” said Mr Richards, “and this home has it all: style, comfort, a genuinely stunning parents’ retreat, and a separate wing for the children.

“The fact that the home is zoned for different ages and needs is also rare and the garden is a delight for people who love producing their own organic fruit and vegetables.”

There are two bedrooms off a family room situated with the family bathroom, ideal as a children’s wing, while the other two bedrooms are served by an ensuite, and make ideal guest rooms or a teenage retreat.

The home’s interior has NSW spotted gum hardwood floors, while the home is kept warm in winter with Braemar heating, and cooled in summer with a Breezair cooling system.

The side terrace has electric external awnings to keep the sun at bay, and there is a shed/workshop/studio with power and a double carport with drive through lock-up tandem garage.
