12 The Avenue, Burradoo

Are you coming to Martha’s Vineyard?

 

Situated privately in a magical little lane in the prettiest part of Burradoo, this enchanting home could have been lifted straight from an elite pocket of New England.   Featuring gorgeous Cape Cod style architecture, the interior has been renovated in beautiful style.  The modern kitchen is perfectly sited with views of the garden and features Corian bench tops, soft close cabinetry and pyrolytic oven and steam oven. 

The daytime living areas are flooded with northerly sun at the (private) front of the house and the formal living areas face a back garden that is simply gorgeous. Step through French doors to a covered alfresco entertaining area looking onto stunning old deciduous trees (throughout the garden you can spot cottonwood, tulip, oak, nyssa, elm, ash and flowering cherry).  It becomes a bulb filled wonderland in spring – little wonder this garden has played host to a beautiful marquee wedding (with an exterior powder room fit for a princess!)

The main bedroom is spacious and has a gorgeous modern ensuite and walk-in robe.  Upstairs, three more bedrooms feature the fabulous character of dormer window nooks – the two bedrooms at each end are enormous and also feature walk-in-robes and roof storage rooms.  There is also a bathroom with separate toilet.

With an acre of near-level magical garden and only a short walk to an elite Highland’s school and Burradoo train station for a direct service to Sydney, this home would suit a family with commuters and children.  However, the floor plan is also perfect for retirees who wish to live downstairs and use the upstairs for guests or grandchildren.
