Grace, space and timeless elegance - these are the hallmarks of this classic gentleman's bungalow in the prestigious near-city suburb of Malvern.

Century-old character and craftsmanship blend seamlessly with modern extensions and amenities to capture the essence of a luxurious lifestyle.

Created around 1920 by true artisans, the home makes an immediate, striking impression with its sandstone walls and verandah pillars that lend a lightness to the substantial structure - a lightness enhanced by the cream-coloured timber of the gables and elaborate original window frames.

Those first impressions are reinforced when you approach the gloss-black entrance featuring subtly patterned leadlight in the door and its surrounds, then emphasised even more when you step into the hallway. The beautifully polished timber floors - which extend throughout the original rooms - lead to a pair of fluted columns on which is mounted a traditional timber fretwork hall arch.

Raise your eyes higher still and admire the period adornments of extensive moulded plaster ceilings, deep cornices and picture rails. Neutral-coloured walls throughout reflect abundant light and amplify the feeling of spaciousness.

Immediately to the right of the entrance, through double-width doors, is the formal sitting room or study, cosily inviting with its gas heater housed in a tall, stepped sandstone fireplace that echoes the exterior stonework.

The fireplace has a twin in the adjoining second bedroom; in this case it's the original, elaborate cast-iron grate with tile surround incorporating exquisite sepia female images. Typical of bungalows of the era, this is a substantial room with built-in robes flanking the fireplace and ample space for a queen bed.

Yet another fireplace adds a touch of class to the spacious king size master bedroom, which like the second bedroom has plantation shutters and ornate plasterwork. Here there's a generously sized walk-in robe and ensuite with floor-to-ceiling tiles and twin showers.

The third and fourth bedrooms - again with plenty of room and built-in robes - bedroom three with timber floor and bedroom four with plush thick piled carpet. The family bathroom adjoins bedroom three, also has floor-to-ceiling tiles and dual shower heads, plus a tub with spa jets. An entry alcove contains a linen cupboard.

Backing onto the second bathroom is the laundry, which easily accommodates a washer and dryer, provides plenty of storage space and has outside access.

The rear of the home opens out into the kitchen, family and dining area, with tiled flooring, granite benchtops and mirrored splashbacks creating a crisp, bright, harmonious palette of tones. Miele appliances and twin sinks in a granite-topped island add further refinement to a stunning yet practical kitchen.

This expansive living space is perfect for formal or informal entertaining and has floor-to-ceiling windows dressed with pinch double-pleated sheer curtains including full sun-block lining. Beyond the windows lies a spectacular combination of azure-tiled swimming pool bordered by a glass safety barrier and lawn, and covered alfresco area with stainless steel outdoor kitchen incorporating sink, wine fridge and plenty of storage.

Ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning throughout the home ensures a comfortable living environment year-round.

Outside, there's a large, formal front garden with brush fence and access through a remote-controlled, sliding timber gate. A red-brick driveway which can easily accommodate two cars leads to a single-vehicle carport with roller door.

All this luxury is so conveniently located, just three kilometres from the CBD, 700 metres from the cosmopolitan shopping and dining precinct of Unley Road, and a little over a kilometre from more boutique shopping and restaurants in King William Road. And for the family, Unley Primary School is only 500 metres away and Hyde Park Nursery School and Early Learning Centre just 400 metres.
