Oogarding: A Unique and Stately Residence on a Huge Allotment

This fabulous and unique family home sits on an unequivocally premium site of 3623m2. It was designed in 1941 by esteemed architect Mervyn Rylance, well known for his 'inter-war Mediterranean' style, and holds cultural heritage significance. Oogarding exudes a feeling of solidity and quality workmanship combined with meticulous, distinctive features. The Rylance signature characteristics include a large and elaborate fireplace, and ornate plaster ceilings.

Extensive use has been made of beautiful timbers, with all joinery and mouldings from Silky Oak, and flooring of Red Stringybark. Ceilings are three metres tall, and windows are round-arched, multi-paned with exterior shutters. Exceptional and original pendant light fittings and wrought iron balustrading enhance the elegant ambience.

A beautiful formal living room has the fireplace as a focal point. A central hall flows to a formal dining room with built-in cabinetry, and sunny sitting room with large windows overlooking trees with distant city views. The central kitchen offers practicality with excellent storage and extensive granite benchtops. A rear deck opens from an adjacent informal dining room and provides a private and peaceful place to relax or entertain. In addition, two undercover terraces face north and provide a pleasant semi-enclosed space for dining and entertaining. A high front fence ensures privacy, and the house is quiet and peaceful.

Upstairs you will find the beautiful master bedroom, enjoying a premium high north-east aspect. It is a spacious and restful room, with excellent built-in storage including two walk-in robes. Three further double bedrooms are carpeted with large windows, some with city views. A reading room offers a quite space to catch up on a good book, or perhaps could be used as a study.

There are bathrooms on both levels, and their fabulous original design has been maintained. They are both highly detailed, and boast unique tiling and an art-deco style. The upstairs bathroom is particularly glamourous with a decorative mirror over the recessed bath.

Of course, there is room in the back yard for a pool, and the possibility of subdivision (STCA). A carport allows undercover parking for 3 cars. The home is merely 6kms from the CBD, with excellent public transport. It is in the highly coveted Rainworth State School catchment, and easy distance to multiple private schools. It also sits in close proximity to the Paddington shopping precinct with cafés and boutique shopping, and there are many parks in the area.

This property is being sold by auction or without a price 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.
