Enveloping you with its distinct warmth and enchanting character the moment you step inside, this personality rich home on a “hills flat” allotment is truly the perfect fit for young professionals, families and downsizers in a picturesque and community-minded no-through road locale. Updated, reimagined, and transformed over the years, come home to a place where nature's beauty surrounds you, where the air is filled with the sweet scent of magnolias, and where every day feels like a retreat.

Upon entry, a living/meals zone with a stunning chandelier makes a grand statement and sets the tone for the home. Step down to a sunken living zone - a fireside retreat for your downtime warmed by a functional gas Coonara heater where views to Silvan Dam and Mount Donna Buang can be enjoyed on a clear day. Hints of a past life can still be found in the doors that lead to the kitchen where a stunning transformation unfolds. Featuring a wonderfully earthy palette with a touch of glam, this beautifully designed space is highlighted by gold accents, a 900mm Fisher and Paykel cooker and a breakfast bar for casual eats and conversation under the radiant glow of pendant lights.

A sunny meals nook flows off the kitchen offering a delightful space for casual eats or a spot for the laptop. From the kitchen, an undercover alfresco zone beckons, inviting you to greet the morning sun with a steaming hot brew, especially enchanting when the wisteria is in bloom. Guiding you into the lavishly sized master bedroom with ample space for a parent’s retreat is a splendidly flexible room that offers multiple choices for the next owner. Everything from a home office, to a kids play area, a TV room or a relaxing warming space when Spring and Autumn sun beams break through. A second bedroom is fitted with ample robes, and a modern bathroom is beautifully skylit.

Outside, the stunning gardens beckon with their lush greenery and vibrant blooms, lovingly crafted by a dedicated garden enthusiast - a haven that attracts wombats, echidnas and a kookaburra family. Among the many treasures are enchanting camellias, magnolias and Japanese Maples adding beauty to the landscape. There’s a passionfruit vine along with plum and citrus trees and plenty of space for child’s play and fresh air adventures.

Walking distance of the general store and post office where everyone knows you by name, Kalorama offers complete peace and tranquillity with the bonus of a friendly old school community appeal. Enjoy being close to all the delights of the Dandenong Ranges, Kalorama Park, Destiny Point Café, walking tracks, Mt Dandenong Primary School and Pre-School or benefit from being well connected to all the conveniences of Montrose or Mount Evelyn a short drive down the mountain.
