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.
