With flooring from a French chateau this home is full of luxurious touches

first_img11 Ruth St, Highgate HillThe thing that impressed Marsha Pavia the most when she and husband Stephen first looked through their home at 11 Ruth St, Highgate Hill, in 2014, was the parquetry floors.“It is French Oak,’’ she said. “Apparently, the man who did the renovations was an architect and he bought the flooring from a chateau in France. It’s really spectacular, those floors are really, really stunning.’’ 11 Ruth St, Highgate Hill“While it is a beautiful home, we don’t spend a lot of time in it. We travel a lot and our girls go to (school at) Somerville House, so during the week they are busy with school and extra curricular activities, and at the weekend we are at birthday parties or sporting events, so we just are never there.’’More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor2 hours ago11 Ruth St, Highgate HillThe family has bought a penthouse apartment even closer to the school and have listed 11 Ruth St for auction.Mrs Pavia said the home was suitable for a large family, particularly if they had daughters attending Somerville House as it was within walking distance. One of her favourite parts of the house when she does get a minute to enjoy it is the downstairs room. 11 Ruth St, Highgate HillThe rest of the house didn’t fail to impress either. It was completely renovated when the family bought the house.While Mrs Pavia said they loved the home, their lives were so busy with work commitments and their five daughters that they didn’t get as much time to enjoy it as they would like. 11 Ruth St, Highgate Hill“There is a lot of greenery around it and it is very tranquil and the lighting has a sort of calming affect to it,’’ she said.“But when you are upstairs you feel like you are on top of the world, you feel like you are right on top of everything, you can see the suburbs, you can see the city and there are beautiful breezes. There are beautiful views from the main bedroom and from all of the living areas upstairs.’’The two-level Queenslander retained many of its original features after its renovation with contemporary additions. 11 Ruth St, Highgate HillThere is marble flooring in the entry foyer as well as wrought iron grills.
