"Dulcabeena" c.1897

A home of landmark local significance for more than a century, magnificent Dulcabeena c.1897 is an exceptional four to five bedroom family offering on 1333sqms (approx.) with pool in one of Brighton's most favoured tree lined avenues. In the same careful hands for the last twenty-five years, its illustrious period proportions have been beautifully restored, renovated and extended to not only preserve its early majesty, but create a successful contemporary family lifestyle sanctuary just minutes from both Bay and Church Streets, leading local and independent schools, transport links and Bay beaches.
Built for a notable local family in the American influenced Queen Anne style, grand original dimensions retain their soaring ceilings, decorative cornices, early timber joinery and impressive OFPs whilst gazing out to the established surrounding gardens full of hidden childhood and alfresco pleasures. At the rear, sophisticated spaces that include a superbly designed entertainer's kitchen, adjoining conservatory and grand contemporary family domain featuring a Cheminees Philippe OFP add wonderful indoor/outdoor entertaining flexibility, unfolding to a sandstone paved pool with water feature and heated shower. Above the gracious gallery staircase and rear servant stairs, a library/study, rumpus with terrace and luxurious travertine tiled bathroom with WIR serve four bedrooms, the deluxe sized main showcasing OFP, Juliette balcony and original undercover terrace.
