A sense of fun & adventure from every angle - 3 level home - glorious Hills’ garden – roomy 2,947 sqm block – approx. 20 mins from City
And now for something different . . . if you have a penchant for the unusual this one could be for you!
A dome of your own nestled within the picturesque Village of Aldgate – just a short stroll into the cafes, the Aldgate Bakery, quaint shops, Public Transport or for a counter meal by the fire at the re-known Aldgate Pump Hotel.
The circular driveway provides easy access and multiple car parking spaces.
Currently with 2 – 3 or possibly 4 bedrooms, this home would suit a couple that love to entertain and or garden, a small family or the expansive lower level could easily become a studio apartment providing a handy dual living opportunity.
You will be impressed with the convenience and versatility this home offers combined with the graciousness of the approx. ¾ acre block. The residence is tucked gently into a sloping allotment which renders the property almost invisible from the roadside and provides a maximum of peace and semi-seclusion.
Cleverly built and designed over 3 levels with large windows that provide a picturesque outlook over the leafy deciduous and fertile garden together with tree-top views and a soaring ceiling that gives a sense of airiness and light. It took imagination to create this property and due to its’ unique nature there is no floorplan available. The exceptional architecture and quirky aesthetics must be seen to be appreciated – it is then you will understand!
On entry level you will find and open plan lounge dining room with an outdoor entertaining balcony, a serene and scenic garden outlook combined with a crisp white renovated kitchen with dishwasher, the first of the bedrooms with a walk-through robe and two-way bathroom.
From here a circular staircase winds it’s way to the upper level with another bedroom, 2nd bathroom and spacious mezzanine that could be used as a work from home office, playroom or just as easily convert into a 3rd bedroom.
A large rumpus room, teen retreat, home office, workshop or spacious bedroom is located on the very bottom level. This level has its’ own separate toilet and basin providing the option to incorporate a third bathroom if so desired (subject to appropriate consents). It’s here on the lower level you will find the laundry and a generous storage space or wine cellar.
The attractive garden has a level lawn area that is perfect for a large table on which to entertain family and friends under the dapple shade of nearby tree. The garden is peppered throughout with stone walling, meandering garden paths, a variety of established trees and shrubs. It is home to a diverse variety of colourful birdlife and the occasional docile Koala.
A former driveway stretches down the left hand side of the property and provided access to the rear of the block, a rear garage/workshop and storage shed.
With only a handful of Dome homes constructed in the Hills across the 1980’s, this is a rare opportunity to buyers that should not miss.

Dear Sandra & team,
We wanted to say a big thank you for helping us sell our home- you made what could have been a stressful experience, a smooth and easy process. Not only that but you helped us purchase our new home, that suits us perfectly, which you really only could do because you have taken the time to know us and what we truly wanted. That is a true credit to you and your business. Although it will be a very long time before we want to sell our new home, we won't hesitate to recommend you to everyone. Thank you!

When we first decided to approach Sandra Berry Real Estate to sell our home, we were met with true determination and enthusiasm to get the job done! The team’s professionalism shone through immediately giving us confident and sound advice throughout the whole process. Having never done an auction before, we were as you can imagine quite daunted at the thought! But having a great team, and an experienced, knowledgeable auctioneer working for you is the best advice we can give. We got all this from Sandra and her team, we would definitely auction again! By choosing to auction our home we believe that it enabled us to achieve the best result which matched our expectations. The process quickly brought together serious buyers in the best competitive environment available. We would definitely recommend Sandra to anyone who is thinking of selling their future property, and without a doubt would choose her and the team in the future.

Despite all the problems that were associated with the sale of the property during difficult weather conditions that caused flooding to the shed and other assorted difficulties, we would like to thank you for the way you and your team managed to bring about a successful sale while remedial work went on around the property.
In particular, I was pleased with the way you presented the house despite its age and condition. I would gladly recommend your services to other sellers.
May we express our appreciation of your expertise in auctioning mother’s home.
The figure reached was above our expectations. Well done.
