Period charm meets inner town living
Brimming with character and period delights, this three bedroom residence in Warragul is truly a unique property.
An approximate 979m2 allotment with dual street frontages, from both Affleck and Bowen Streets, together with an enviable inner town location, the potential for subdivision (STCA) is also an attractive option. The 1930s home retains many of its original features, combined with sympathetic renovations and improvements to suit a modern lifestyle.
High ceilings, exquisite decorative plasterwork, an open fireplace, floorboards, picture rails and sash windows in the front section of the home are complemented with a well equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, laundry and a spacious open plan living area. Large bay windows in the front facing bedrooms have a splendid treetop outlook across to the golf course from the elevated position. Established hedges around the perimeter, recycled brick pathways and private nooks within the terraced, landscaped gardens create a peaceful haven from busy town life. In addition to the main residence, there is a substantial home office or studio with a sink and built-in storage, a double carport and a charming self contained cottage with independent access from Affleck Street. This one bedroom cottage would be perfect for extended family, guests or an Airbnb with its cosy living room, kitchenette, bathroom, lavish corner spa and private courtyard patio. Wisteria adorns the rear verandah of the residence which leads through French doors into the kitchen and open plan living area where the warm colour scheme, polished floorboards and a gas log fire create an inviting ambience. Modern, yet with a vintage feel, the kitchen features Bosch appliances, including a four burner gas cooktop, wall oven and a dishwasher, a double pantry and a deep island bench. Nearby is the main bathroom with a bath, shower, vanity, toilet and the laundry with inbuilt storage.
From the living area, a hall leads to the front entry with a covered porch and the three bedrooms, including the main bedroom with an elegant ensuite, open fire place and a window seat with storage set into the bay window. Decorative cornices and the Art Deco styled ceiling panels in the entry hall and bedrooms are stunning. Ducted gas heating, split system air conditioning in the living area, a ceiling fan in the living area and main bedroom, quality carpets, window coverings and period light fittings are further features.
The property is a stone’s throw from the Warragul Primary School, Scenic Park is across the road whilst St. Paul’s Anglican Grammar, the golf course and town centre are all within an easy walk.
