DescriptionRiverwoods is an exclusive development set in the leafy suburb of Maypark. No 1 enjoys the benefits of the mature sylvan setting offering privacy yet proximity to all amenities.
Built in 1998, it was designed by architect Oliver Dempsey with the mandate to create a unique, light-filled house which would serve well as a family home and for entertaining. This elegant 5 bedroom detached home offers 270 sq meters of light filled, beautifully appointed and maintained accommodation. An additional detached two storey garage provides an extra 50 sq meters.
The unique design of this exceptional home incorporates the wonderful south westerly aspect to the rear and allows a natural flow from the inside out. The living rooms and kitchen are interconnecting and open to the patio allowing for year round outdoor and indoor dining and entertaining.
On the ground floor the main reception room with extra high ceilings is at once perfect for all the family and quickly transforms into an entertaining room with its access to dining area, hall and patio.
In every room, you will find thoughtful design and concepts such as the original stained glass features from the front door to several windows in the house. The kitchen has a walk-in pantry and dual aspect windows which capture both morning and evening sun.
The library/study opens to shower room and readily converts to a ground floor en-suite bedroom if ever required.
Upstairs, there are 5 bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, two of the bedrooms are en-suite and have balconies to enjoy the morning sun. The attic is accessed by a spiral staircase and its current occasioned use is as a reading room and a writing room with additional storage space. This home offers excellent storage solutions throughout.
The two storey large garage serves as a workshop while upstairs currently houses the gym. Needless to say, this building has enormous potential.
