House of the Week Strathdale: 15 Marlo Court

Timeless entertainer

DON'T be fooled by the street presence of this Reuben Beazley-built home because within its walls and well beyond is a home faultlessly designed for absolute comfort and relaxation, with its own unique decorating style. 

Whether it be in the formal lounge room in front of the electric log fire enjoying a pre-dinner drink with friends, or out lounging beside the pool, followed by a relaxing barbecue with the family in the large undercover alfresco dining area; it's a home built for entertaining and sharing.

Stunning period features throughout the front half include decorative cornices and ceiling roses. You'll find an impressive extra-large main bedroom, with generous walk-in wardrobes, an en suite offering 'his and hers' vanities and a large shower adjoining, and through access to a spacious parents' retreat or additional bedroom.

There's also a welcoming sitting room/library with an electric log heater, where you can feel the timeless quiet of lovely space.

The second half of the home takes on an oriental feel, as you pass over the wide timber parquetry hallway, and move through to the hub where the family meets, eats, and plays: the entertainer's kitchen, dining and living spaces that can be closed off one from the other with timber shuttered doors and all opening to the outdoor holiday resort-style living area. it doesn't get much better than this.

A butler's pantry is another wonderful discovery, adding to the top-quality stainless steel appliances and polished granite-look benchtops of the kitchen.

Two more bedrooms, designed with teenagers in mind, are located in a separate wing towards the back of the home, each with a walk-in wardrobe, separate vanities and a shared shower. This part of the home also has a large laundry with clever storage, and backyard and swimming pool access. 

Outside offers a magnificent solar heated, salt-chlorinated pool, large patio area and a purpose-built garage with three-vehicle access, a built-in bar, direct access to the patio and a solid fuel heater.

For green thumbs, there are abundant water tanks, an additional garden shed, and fully landscaped gardens.

Located in sought-after Strathdale and offering excellent access to shops, schools, La Trobe University, sporting facilities and the CBD, an inspection will impress.
