5 Reidwell Drive, Woodend $1,050,000
Style meets substance; a contemporary stunner
This modern and beautiful home stands out for all the right reasons. With clever design and an obvious commitment to quality, the bar is set very high. The bold styling of the façade presents a confident, modern face to the street, and this theme continues within.
An over-sized timber door opens onto wide entrance hallway with polished concrete floors that leads to the central living area. This is a most inviting and attractive space. A huge bank of double-glazed, six-panel stacker doors embraces the expansive merbau deck that runs along the northern side of the house. A useful study nook has a desk and overhead cabinets.
The kitchen is quite something, with impressive amounts of cabinetry, including soft-close drawers, in modern high-gloss white laminate, and a built-in wine rack. The marbled Caesarstone island bench has two waterfall ends, with timber relief on the breakfast bar side. The butler’s pantry is a dream with loads of additional storage and a sink for speedy clean ups. As befits a home of this quality, the appliances are of the highest standard, with European induction cooktop, warming drawer, rangehood, electric wall oven with retractable door, and built in microwave. Haiku ceiling fans throughout.
A spacious rumpus room is located at the end of the house, with double doors separating it from the main living area as desired. Between these two spaces is a wonderful alfresco area, lined with stacker doors on two sides for seamless access to the indoors– just wonderful for entertaining.
The master bedroom has a large WIR and a stylish ensuite with moody Italian tiles and white and timber vanity and a big walk in shower. Two additional bedrooms have high built-in robes and share a lovely family bathroom with walk in shower and deep, oval Kaldewei - Vaio bath. Both bathrooms have Milan heated towel rails.
There is a fourth bedroom which could be utilised as a study.
In addition to utilising passive solar properties, this house has double glazing, heating and cooling, a 10kw Mitsubishi flat panel split system in the main living area and two further Mitsubishi split systems in master bedroom and rumpus room. A Jindara woodfire in the living room brings the charm of areal flame to Woodend winters.
The laundry has an impressive amount of cabinets and benches, and leads directly to the double (oversized) garage. Here, more stacker doors offer entertaining possibilities with flexible and clever use of space.
The solar gas-boosted Thermann hot water system has capacity of 315 litres with 30 evacuated tube system (solar) and 26 litre continuous flow natural gas boost.
The 640m2 allotment has been professionally landscaped by a highly-regarded Melbourne firm, and the garden is well established and thriving. There is a hedge of mature trees providing shade and privacy, a sunny stretch of lawn, ornamentals in garden beds, concrete paths and driveway.
Located just over a kilometre from the railway station, and Woodend’s new Coles supermarket; this beautiful and highly desirable residence offers everything a family could want and need.
