Lofty 10 foot ceil­ings, dec­o­ra­tive plas­ter­work, hard­wood ar­chi­traves, sash win­dows and lead­light de­tail­ing are just a few of the fea­tures that give the home its charm­ing char­ac­ter. This at­ten­tion to de­tail com­bined with a modern lay­out is the per­fect fu­sion of the old with the new. Four bed­rooms, in­clud­ing the main bed­room with a walk-in robe and en­suite, study, for­mal and fam­ily liv­ing ar­eas and a coun­try styled kitchen are in­cluded in the floor plan. A large at­tic room could be utilised as ex­tra liv­ing space or for stor­age. For out­door en­ter­tain­ing there is a spa­cious cov­ered al­fresco area com­plete with a gas/ com­bus­tion stove and a pow­ered gazebo in the gar­den. The wrap around ve­ran­dah is ideal to soak up the tran­quil set­ting and sweep­ing views. Fur­ther im­prove­ments in­clude a 10m x 9m three car garage with auto roller doors, a sep­a­rate toi­let and sink plus an ad­di­tional 7m x 7m garage. Both sheds have power, a con­crete floor and mez­za­nine stor­age. Metic­u­lous pre­sen­ta­tion ex­tends to the gar­den where ev­ery inch of the 2,550m2 al­lot­ment has been care­fully land­scaped with neatly tended gar­den beds, re­tain­ing walls, brick path­ways, es­tab­lished trees and rolling lawns. En­try to the res­i­dence feels like a step back in time. Che­quered floor tiles and or­nate plas­ter­work cre­ate a for­mal im­pres­sion. To the left is the study, op­po­site is the main bed­room. Fur­ther along, beau­ti­ful bev­elled glass French doors open to the for­mal sit­ting room, an el­e­gant room with deep cor­nices, gas log fire with a pe­riod tim­ber man­tle and a large win­dow over­look­ing the gar­den and be­yond to the dis­tant moun­tains. Ad­join­ing is the kitchen, meals and fam­ily liv­ing area where tim­ber dado cre­ates a more ca­sual tone. Ex­posed brick­work in the kitchen gives a rus­tic el­e­ment to this homely work space. Modern ameni­ties in­clude a Euro gas cook­top, Blanco oven and a dish­washer. There is also a gas log fire in the liv­ing area to­gether with two ceil­ing fans which as­sist with air flow. Two sets of lead­light doors al­low ac­cess to the ve­ran­dah whilst a large box bay win­dow takes ad­van­tage of the su­perb northerly as­pect. Po­si­tioned off the liv­ing area are the fam­ily bath­room with a cor­ner spa, tim­ber van­ity and shower, a sep­a­rate toi­let, bed­room four, the laun­dry and outside ac­cess to the al­fresco area. The two re­main­ing bed­rooms and lad­der ac­cess to the at­tic room are found off the hall­way fur­ther along from the main bed­room. One of these sec­ondary bed­rooms has a walk-in robe, the other two bed­rooms and the laun­dry have built-in stor­age. Ad­di­tional fea­tures in­clude ducted gas heat­ing, pe­riod fix­tures, qual­ity floor and win­dow cov­er­ings. A 5,000 litre wa­ter tank sup­plies the gar­den, veggie boxes and as­sorted cit­rus trees. With its time­less grace, el­e­gance and warmth, this prop­erty of­fers a unique and pri­vate life­style for the as­tute buyer. Num­ber 5 Glen­dalough Close, War­ragul is of­fered for sale for $880,000.
