CHAR­AC­TER HOME WITH A BLUE RIB­BON AD­DRESS

The Gazette Real Estate - - FRONT PAGE -

If it’s a char­ac­ter home you seek, loads of space and an in­ner town ad­dress, num­ber 121 Vic­to­ria Street, War­ragul is sure to tick the boxes. Orig­i­nally built in the 1940s by lo­cal crafts­man, Don Glen, the four bed­room home has re­mained in the same fam­ily un­til now.

Dur­ing the late 1960s the sec­ond storey was added, trans­form­ing the mod­est weath­er­board into a more spa­cious res­i­dence with the ad­di­tion of a bed­room, bath­room and an ex­tra liv­ing area. More re­cent re­fur­bish­ments in­clude a stylish, mod­ern kitchen, tim­ber lam­i­nate floor­ing and roller blinds whilst lead­light en­try doors, dec­o­ra­tive and stepped cor­nices, pic­ture rails and a slate sur­round fire­place with tim­ber mantel are orig­i­nal fea­tures.

High ceil­ings and large corner win­dows in many of the rooms cre­ate a feel­ing of space and a fresh, airy am­bi­ence. Poised on the high side of Vic­to­ria Street, the home boasts a stun­ning vista across the town-sec­ond ship to Mount Worth and the south­ern ranges, par­tic­u­larly from the sec­ond level. Fur­ther im­prove­ments in­clude a steel dou­ble garage, tool shed and land­scaped, low main­te­nance gar­dens.

The semi en­closed front porch leads to the en­try hall.

To the right is the liv­ing room, a peace­ful room with a lovely out­look across to the ranges.

A gas heater set into the fire­place is an invit­ing el­e­ment dur­ing the cooler weather, a ceil­ing fan as­sists with air flow. Op­po­site is the kitchen and meals area.

Off white cab­i­netry is teamed with a tiled splash­back, stone-like lam­i­nate counter tops and an up­right gas cooker. Over­heads, mul­ti­ple draw­ers and a dou­ble pantry al­low plenty of stor­age.

The pleas­ant view from the win­dow above the sink makes wash­ing up a breeze. Slid­ing glass doors con­nect to a liv­ing area with out­side ac­cess to the rear porch. Bed­room four, the laun­dry and a sep­a­rate toi­let are also lo­cated at the rear of the lay­out. Fur­ther along from the front en­try are the steps lead­ing to the up­per level, the two re­main­ing sec­ondary bed­rooms and the fam­ily bath­room with a shower, bath, van­ity and a toi­let. Built-in robes are in­cluded in the three sec­ondary bed­rooms, one of the front bed­rooms also has a walk-in robe cre­ated by the space un­der the staircase and an air con­di­tioner. The sec­ond level is a pri­vate, par­ents’ do­main with a car­peted liv­ing area, spa­cious bed­room, walk-in robe, en­suite and split sys­tem air con­di­tion­ing. Large corner win­dows in both the liv­ing area and the bed­room have the most marvel­lous view. Civic Park, the Arts Cen­tre, War­ragul Pri­mary School, cafes, shops and the train sta­tion are a short walk down the hill. Com­bin­ing char­ac­ter, mod­ern ameni­ties and an in­ner town lo­ca­tion, this is a rare of­fer­ing.
