Pettit and Sevitt home in Cheltenham NSW for sale
Decking provides views across the valley and makes the perfect spot for afternoon tea after school watching the birds, or sundowners with friends.


Tranquil living room with built-in shelving, beautiful curved wall towards entrance, and floor to ceiling windows with verdant outlook. 


Newly updated kitchen with Rogerseller Arc mixer tap, stainless steel Miele dishwasher and Ilve oven and gas stovetop. Huge amount of storage throughout the kitchen including large pantry. Adjoining study nook cleverly built-in. Timber-framed windows and beautiful timber benchtop. Flows through to separate laundry (with doggy door) and WC.


Master bedroom with en-suite features raked ceilings and views across the valley. A stand out feature of the home are the floor-to-ceiling doors and iconic timber door handles.


One of the four bedrooms on the upper level, all with bush views and timber-framed, double-glazed windows. The high raked ceilings are beautiful.


The built-in timber bookshelf is an eye-catching standout in the sunken lounge; ready for a library of books. The adjacent dining and living spaces are glassed off for separation with sliding door to provide even more privacy. Even more storage is available along the length of the lounge below the main living area. This space flows directly out to the front deck with electric vergola, creating seamless indoor-outdoor living.




The dining area in the centre of the house is separated from the living area by a stunning Western Red Cedar timber wall, and iconic feature of Pettit + Sevitt homes.


The front deck is made for relaxing and entertaining; the electric vergola allowing control of light and protection from the elements.

It's a beautiful home that has been gently updated while respecting its mid-century modern roots. The timber throughout the home creates a cosy and warm retreat and the location is extremely unique; great schools, close public transport, only 20 min into the city on the M2, extremely handy to Macquarie University and North Ryde business district but with Lane Cove National Park just meters away. We've been told that it's like a "grown up tree house". Thanks Henny from OH Properties for that description!

We were thrilled that that Realestate.com.au featured our home as House of the Week recently. Read the full article here.

"the four-bedroom house, (which) bears classic Pettit and Sevitt and Woolley hallmarks, including timber posts and beams, split levels, high raked ceilings, and clever layouts that maximise the use of every available space. Built-in custom furniture has been cleverly placed in breakout areas such as the study, where a desk is tucked neatly into an alcove next to the kitchen and dining area."

The home is for sale by private treaty through Stone Real Estate Beecroft. With only 3,500 Pettit + Sevitt homes built across Australia, there are very few still available, particularly in such excellent condition. Contact Kevin Dearlove at Stone for price guide and more information.
