Architect's Masterpiece

14 Clifford Avenue, Fendalton


Property ID: PI75872

4 3 2 2

Showing the hand of a master architect at work, this beautiful and superbly renovated home was originally designed and lived in by Architect Alun Wilkie, known for iconic buildings including Knox Church and The Piano Centre for Music and the Arts. With a seamlessly integrated extension by award-winning MC Architecture Studio increasing the size of the home to approximately 274 sqm, the original design has been infused with contemporary appeal. A blue-chip address, just a short stroll to Mona Value and Hagley Park, underpins a property of supreme quality.
Perfectly arranged to benefit from a northwest aspect, an array of living spaces bathe in natural light and sun. Open-plan living and dining flows to a neatly integrated lounge that can become an intimate space for entertaining and relaxing thanks to a concealed sliding door. Timber floors unite the living spaces, and the clever addition of bespoke joinery creates versatile zones within rooms. Thermally broken double glazed sliders seamlessly connect 60 sqm of north-facing decking in 655 sqm gardens landscaped for maximum enjoyment and minimum maintenance with a boardwalk, raised garden and veggie box. Positioned beside the living area is a masterful contemporary kitchen, where a skylight and under-cupboard windows ensure an abundance of light, illuminating an expanse of counter space and storage (including walk-in pantry), gas cooktop and entertainer's oven. A new master suite upstairs is served by a WIR and luxe tiled en suite with twin vanity, leaving a second bedroom with en suite, and a further double bedroom plus office (or single bedroom) are served by the fully tiled family bathroom. A generous separate laundry, carport, double internal-access garage and excellent storage ensure this home is every bit as practical as it is aesthetically thrilling.
Less visible than the top-quality finishes on display throughout the house, but equally important to quality of life, are high-spec upgrades including wool carpet, linen curtains, Integrated air conditioning upstairs and Top-notch air-conditioning (Diamond Series Mitsubishi), a full-reclad with high quality insulation, new wiring and 6kW capacity solar panels, new Gib to much of the house, and Lossnay ventilation. Zoned for Elmwood School, Heaton Intermediate, Boys' High, Girls' High, and Burnside High, and with a choice of private schools in the vicinity, this is an exceptional family home just moments to Merivale Mall, Victoria Street or Westfield Riccarton. Don't miss the opportunity to secure an iconic architectural home. Contact the agent without delay to register your interest.
