true style when old meets new

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - McGrath -

THIS pretty ‘‘party’’ home will de­light all kinds of buy­ers. It has a lovely blue­stone frontage sur­rounded by es­tab­lished, easy care gar­dens. In­side is an el­e­gant ex­am­ple of mod­ern-day liv­ing.

The villa has been im­mac­u­lately ren­o­vated and ex­tended and pro­motes a sense of char­ac­ter with its wide cen­tral hall­way, high ceil­ings, open fire­places and tim­ber man­tles.

Floor­boards fea­ture through­out. The decor is taste­ful and el­e­gant.

Agent Megan Tam­lin says the de­sign is a great re­sult of what can hap­pen when old meets new.

‘‘It’s just a lovely mar­riage (of de­signs) and it just blends re­ally seam­lessly,’’ she says.

As for whom the home would best suit, Ms Tam­lin says a broad de­mo­graphic of po­ten­tial buy­ers have shown in­ter­est.

‘‘It would suit some­one who wants a huge home but not an enor­mous gar­den,’’ she says.

‘‘It could be some­one scal­ing down look­ing for a big home but still with­out the work or a fam­ily who doesn’t want a lot of gar­den as well.’’

The mas­ter suite with en suite is one of up to five bed­rooms that fea­ture in the home.

Bed­rooms two and three are cen­trally lo­cated and op­po­site a share bath­room while the fourth bed­room is at the rear.

A for­mal lounge room is at the front of the home, en­abling pri­vate catch ups away from the main en­ter­tain­ing hub at the rear made up of open-plan kitchen, din­ing and fam­ily room. The fam­ily room, which al­most hooks around the side of the home, opens up through dou­ble doors to a paved en­ter­tain­ing area.

En­ter­tain­ing could be ex­tended to the dou­ble car­port, if the cars were kept in the street.

‘‘If I lived there I would be keep­ing the cars in the street and us­ing the car­port as a bar­be­cue area so if you were hav­ing a party you can use that un­der­cover area as well,’’ Ms Tam­lin says.

In idyl­lic Nor­wood, the home has at­tracted much in­ter­est. ‘‘It’s been beau­ti­fully ren­o­vated and it’s the sort of place I’d love to pack my bags and move right into,’’ Ms Tam­lin says.
