Elevated outlook looks to tradition
BUILT in the 1930s, the fourbedroom house Saltcoats boasts an elevated position with views stretching to the city.
This two-level property is on an 810sq m block, close to the Martha St precinct, Whites Hill Shopping Village and an enticing variety of cafe and schooling options.
Traditional features are the hallmark of this residence, including high VJ ceilings, french doors and polished timber floors, while contemporary additions include a colourful interior palette, airconditioning and ceiling fans.
Surrounded by landscaped, sun-dappled gardens, the house presents a classic facade, with an external timber staircase leading to the upper level.
The main entry opens to a window-framed sunroom, flowing to both a foyer and an adjoining formal lounge.
From the foyer there is access to the main bedroom, which includes a built-in wardrobe and entry to a sleepout/study area.
A second bedroom with a built-in wardrobe also flows through to the sleep-out, while a central bathroom, complete with a shower and separate claw foot bathtub, is nearby.
Moving towards the rear of the layout, there is an office and a third bedroom with a built-in wardrobe.
From the office, the floorplan continues through to a separate, open-plan living, dining and kitchen area.
French doors extend from this space out to a covered veranda that features ceiling fans, lighting, timber balustrades and three steps leading down to the lush green backyard.
Overlooking the living and dining areas, the kitchen includes an island bench, gas cooktop and a pantry.
Moving to the ground level, a fourth bedroom has a built-in wardrobe, while a central rumpus area flows through to the laundry and an adjoining bathroom.
There is also access to a covered patio and internal entry to the double garage.
In addition this property has side access for a boat.
