Charm­ing home in peace­ful gar­den set­ting

The Gazette Real Estate - - VIEW -

Be­yond the picket fence and charm­ing cot­tage gar­den, this de­light­ful home is a peace­ful, pri­vate haven de­spite be­ing only a short stroll from the cen­tre of Trafal­gar. Num­ber 16 Ashby Street is po­si­tioned on a cor­ner al­lot­ment, ac­cessed from Kitch­ener Street. A compact, yet prac­ti­cal lay­out in­cludes three bed­rooms, cen­tral bath­room, spa­cious liv­ing/din­ing room and a fresh, func­tional kitchen. Large win­dows through­out the home frame the gar­den views and fill the in­te­rior with nat­u­ral light. Ad­di­tional im­prove­ments in­clude an over­sized sin­gle garage with space for a car plus a work­shop, lock-up store­room, gar­den shed and a pot­ting shed.

Pav­ing and a deck across the rear cre­ate a shel­tered, shaded spot dur­ing the sum­mer months whilst the wis­te­ria cov­ered ter­race at the front cap­tures the win­ter sun. At the east end of the al­lot­ment is a hid­den pocket of the gar­den with a thriv­ing veg­gie gar­den, fruit trees, blue­ber­ries and a lovely old weep­ing birch tree. Orig­i­nal pol­ished floor­boards, high ceil­ings, sash win­dows, dec­o­ra­tive fret­work and em­bel­lished cor­nices are found in the liv­ing room. A large win­dow takes ad­van­tage of the sunny northerly as­pect whilst a split sys­tem air con­di­tioner main­tains cli­mate con­trol. Ad­join­ing the liv­ing room is the kitchen with soft green counter tops, coun­try pro­file cab­i­netry and a sub­way tiled splash­back. Qual­ity ap­pli­ances in­clude a gas cook top, Ilve un­der bench oven and a Bosch dish­washer. A pull out pantry, un­der bench cab­i­netry and glass over­heads pro­vide plenty of stor­age. Nearby is the laun­dry with builtin cup­boards and out­side ac­cess to the rear pa­tio and deck.

Quaint frosted glass doors from the kitchen open to the en­try hall which leads down to the three bed­rooms, bath­room and a dou­ble linen press.

All of the bed­rooms have floor to ceil­ing built-in robes and a ceil­ing fan. The spot­less bath­room in­cludes a large van­ity, bath, toi­let and a gor­geous lead­light win­dow over the bath.

Ducted gas heat­ing, roller blinds, ex­ter­nal blinds on the west face and a 16 panel so­lar unit are ad­di­tional features.

All of the town’s ameni­ties, in­clud­ing schools, shops, V/Line and com­mu­nity ser­vices are within a short, level walk. Pri­vate, con­ve­nient and brim­ming with char­ac­ter, this lovely home is sure to please.
