DON’T be fooled by the modest facade of this modern Newtown house — it’s got a knockout secret asset that reveals itself the moment you open the front door.
A sweeping uninterrupted view of the Barwon River valley and Queens Park Golf Club makes a lasting impression as you cast your eye down the entrance hallway.
The attractive panorama is the star attraction of the executive-style residence at 4A Patten Court and can never be built out thanks to the house’s privileged position in an exclusive court above Deviation Rd.
Word is the sunsets here are magic.
