The humble treehouse goes up a notch at this idyllic Eltham abode.
Set across three levels and on a sprawling 1034sq m block, the luxurious treetop residence at 17 Flint St naturally blends into its surrounds with expanses of exposed timber.
And a deluxe main bedroom, featuring a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with twin basins and a rainfall shower, opens directly out to the pool emulating a resort-like feel.
Four additional bedrooms, a study and generous front and back gardens make the leafy house the perfect work-from-home haven or lockdown retreat.
Barry Plant Eltham director Jason Stepanow described the home, which has just been listed with a $1.55m-$1.65m price guide, as a “private treetop escape”.
“There are stained-glass windows, which is very Eltham, a lot of timbers, natural stones, spotted-gum flooring and exposed beams,” Mr Stepanow said.
“Eltham is an area where every block of land is different, it’s not a gridded suburb. But it’s a very family-friendly floorplan.
“It’s also in the zoned Eltham High School pocket – people are now moving into the area just to go to that high school – and it’s got access to all the trains and lots of parks.”
The open-plan living area features a wood-fire heater and a contemporary kitchen with a waterfall stone benchtop and stainless-steel appliances, including a freestanding 900mm cooker. The space opens out to an elevated sun-drenched alfresco deck.
The agent said he was expecting interest from “families from the fringe suburbs looking for bigger homes on bigger land at a more reasonable price point”.
He said the vendors had lived at the property for a few years but were downsizing to a lifestyle property.
