BRIGHT AND FULL OF CHARACTER
A BRIGHT and cheerful red front gate and white picket fence welcome you into this delightfully renovated character home.
Owners Audrey and Daan moved to the 268sq m property eight years ago and undertook an extensive renovation, from replacing the roof and bathroom to installing evaporative airconditioning throughout the house.
“We are keen gardeners and we planted many natives and fruit trees, including mandarin, elderflower, lime, avocado, kaffir lime and apple trees around the back, as well as a couple of dwarf feijoa trees in pots, and this has created a lush private courtyard feel,” they said.
“From the front porch, there is a nice green view of the garden and the privacy makes it a lovely spot for breakfast or afternoon tea.”
The white of the high ceilings, wood panel walls and door frames in the central hallway contrasts with the polished floorboards and draws the eye to the rear living and dining area.
“The rear lounge room lights up beautifully in the afternoon and gets lovely and warm in the winter, perfect for quiet reading and soaking up the sun,” Audrey and Daan said.
Cooking is a joy in the spacious kitchen with stylish benchtops and splashback tiles, and the original stove and fireplace making a stunning centrepiece.
