OVERFLOWING WITH ELEGANCE MOVE IN AND ENJOY, ALL THE HARD WORK HAS BEEN DONE
BEHIND the storybook white picket fence and beyond cottage gardens proudly stands this gorgeous character residence, overflowing with all the style and elegance of a bygone era.
From the verandas, awning and weatherboard cladding to the facade to the high ceilings and timber floorboards inside, there is plenty of original charm still intact.
The owners bought the property 12 years ago, working hard to turn it into the welcoming family home it is today.
“When we bought the house it was derelict and we did it right back up from the ground up,” one of the owners said.
“We spend most of the time on the back deck and a lot of our time in the garden.
“We really enjoy gardening, hence the landscaping, and we’ve got fruit trees all over the place, including limes, lemons, orange, mandarins and a peach tree as well.”
The owners’ thoughtful updates have kept the home up with the times and it now features downlights, aircon- ditioning and modern appliances.
Through the secure entry, the quaint residence immediately opens up into the free-flowing main living space.
This consists of the very spacious lounge, a contemporary kitchen with feature bulkhead ceilings and the dining room.
Tucked away are two double-sized bedrooms with built-in robes, plus a sleepout that is ideal as a home office or rumpus room at the rear.
The floor plan also features a laundry room and a well-presented bathroom.
Stepping outside, the beautifully decked full-width alfresco area will no doubt appeal to keen entertainers.
With more than enough room for a large dining space for barbecues as well as a sitting area screened by lush gardens, there is plenty of flexibility here to accommodate parties of all sizes.
