EL­E­GANT charm com­bined with a slice of his­tory comes alive in this se­cluded, two-level home.

Built in 1941 and ren­o­vated in 2006, the res­i­dence boasts neu­tral tones and ex­ter­nal tim­ber win­dow shut­ters throughout as well as an in­ground pool and many out­door ar­eas to en­joy.

Inside, high­lights in­clude hon­ey­coloured Crows Ash and rich red Cedar tim­ber as well as two fire­places, dou­ble­hung win­dows, high ceil­ings and sev­eral spa­ces for liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ing.

A long drive­way ex­tends past neigh­bour­ing homes to the res­i­dence, which fea­tures es­tab­lished gar­dens and a tiled court­yard set be­fore the main en­trance.

A hall­way be­yond the front door leads to an ex­pan­sive liv­ing room with dou­ble­hung win­dows, Crows Ash floors and a brick and tim­ber fire­place.

The kitchen looks to the open-plan area as well as a din­ing room and fea­tures stone bench­tops, am­ple cream tim­ber cab­i­netry and Smeg stain­less steel ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a gas cook­top.

A gallery of tim­ber-framed win­dows also of­fers views to the pool with its sand­stone sur­rounds and glass balustrades.

Lead­ing from the liv­ing room is a car­peted for­mal liv­ing and din­ing room with dou­ble-hung win­dows and a study nook.

There is also ac­cess from this area to the rear tim­ber deck and L-shaped tiled court­yard with its bar­be­cue area and stor­age room.

The liv­ing room flows to the deck as well via tim­ber and glass doors and to the nearby pool and lawn framed by hedges.

Also lead­ing from the open-plan area is a laun­dry and a bath­room with a shower.

The en­trance hall­way fea­tures car­peted stairs with Cedar balustrades reach­ing to the up­per level, with a ceil­ing void soar­ing over­head.

To one side of the floor­plan are two bed­rooms with plum-coloured fea­ture walls and Cedar doors.

Both bed­rooms lead into a large car­peted sun­room or ad­di­tional bed­room which has built-in wardrobes.

The sec­ond bed­room also has built-in wardrobes as well as a brick fire­place and a pri­vate bal­cony.

These bed­rooms share a nearby bath­room with a com­bined bath­tub and shower.

Also on this level is the main car­peted bed­room with built-in wardrobes, a Cedar door and an en­suite with a shower.

The home fea­tures am­ple stor­age with un­ex­pected hid­den wardrobes throughout, as well as a dou­ble car­port.
