Laoidhigh – A Distinctive Home with Spectacular Views

The Irish name of this beautiful residence means 'poetic'. Such an appropriate name for an elevated and graceful home, nestled into the high side of the street and offering 180 degree panoramic views of the city and surrounds.

The circa 1925 home was given a major extension in 2003 by a master builder. Just look around and you'll see the quality and workmanship that shines through – from a very well-considered floorplan to joinery details – this home offers you the very best in timeless craftsmanship.

Laoidhigh has attractive street appeal, with the original cottage façade and quintessential front verandah. The contemporary section of the home, upstairs, provides breathtaking views, and a large welcoming deck is just perfect for taking full advantage of the elevation. This is where you will spend your time entertaining, relaxing, and being mesmerized with the changing city scape from dawn until evening.

The living rooms that flow to the deck highlight beautiful Spotted Gum flooring. This open plan area incorporates a designer kitchen with a servery to the deck. It provides timber cabinetry, new Corian stone benchtops, generous storage, a dishwasher and a Smeg 90cm gas hob and oven.

An extraordinary feature is the remote controlled garage that presently houses three cars and a workshop/ storage room. Most Paddington homes are fortunate to have off-street parking for two cars at best.

The back yard has a flat, landscaped lawn surrounded by a mature low maintenance garden. A family room on the ground floor is a generous size and perfect for family activities. Five bedrooms are all situated on this level, and you'll see that the character features of the original cottage have been retained, such as high ceilings and fretwork over the bedroom doors.

The master bedroom cleverly incorporates bi-fold louvres that open to the family room to allow the breezes to filter through, and an expansive walk-in robe. A well-appointed ensuite bathroom offers dual shower heads and basins, with luxurious limestone benchtops. The family bathroom is also stylish, and includes a large bath set in front of a stacked rock wall.

Cross ventilation keeps the home cool and comfortable, but split-system air conditioning is installed to cope with extreme weather. A security system is also in place.

The location is superb – walking distance to the shops and cafes in Latrobe Terrace and Rosalie Village and only 200m to 3 bus routes that go directly to the CBD. The home is in the catchment for Milton State School and many private schools.

This property is being sold by auction and therefore a price guide cannot be provided. The website may have filtered the property into a price bracket for website functionality purposes. A list of recent sales will be made available upon enquiry.
