true style when old meets new
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.
