VIEWS OF GARDEN GLORY HIDDEN at the end of the driveway and surrounded by mature landscaped gardens, this outstanding double storey weatherboard residence is truly breathtaking. The original heritage home has been superbly preserved with 1920s period detailing and attention to quality paramount in the design and decor. Brecon’s versatile floor plan gives many layout options. The main entrance opens to a formal lounge and library, warmed by an open fire which is framed by a timber mantle. Gleaming hardwood floors throughout

complement the many period features. The kitchen has timeless appeal, featuring an island bench with generous storage, Bosch appliances and country style ceramic sink. It overlooks a private courtyard and French doors open onto a timber deck and slate paved outdoor entertainment area. Visitors are able to enjoy the light filled family room with ceiling-to-floor glass windows which opens into a studio, and more French doors give access to an appealing verandah. The established gardens, pathways and

steps, lead to hidden areas which contain a wide variety of plantings which are often found in typical ‘hills’ gardens, but also include many rare and unusual specimens. They are connected by stone walls and wide stone steps. The herb garden, adjacent to the kitchen, as well as a hen house, add to the selfsufficient charm. The upper level of the home offers spacious bedrooms, complete with modern family bathroom, an open mezzanine study or fourth bedroom. The master suite on the lower level


incorporates en-suite and walk-in wardrobe. Situated on a very private 2/3 acre on a sealed road, and within walking distance to the Olinda village, transport and walking trails, Brecon represents quintessential hills living. Inclusions are gas ducted heating, reverse cycle air conditioning, ducted vacuum system, double garage with direct access to the house, double glazed windows throughout, updated window furnishings, under house water storage and garden sheds.
