Char­ac­ter home with sur­pris­ing space in­side and out

The Gazette Real Estate - - NEWS -

This is a great op­por­tu­nity for the buyer want­ing a char­ac­ter home with mod­ern ameni­ties and loads of space for fam­ily liv­ing. The two level res­i­dence, po­si­tioned on a gen­er­ous 1,017m2 al­lot­ment, has been owned by the one fam­ily for 45 years and has been metic­u­lously main­tained and up­dated over time to cre­ate a func­tional, wel­com­ing home.

A spa­cious, flex­i­ble lay­out fea­tures two bed­rooms, for­mal din­ing room, mod­ern kitchen, liv­ing room, bath­room and a Euro­pean laun­dry on the ground floor, the sec­ond level ac­com­mo­dates an ad­di­tional bed­room, home office, sec­ond bath­room and a large liv­ing area. Fur­ther im­prove­ments in­clude a north fac­ing, shel­tered pa­tio across the rear, dou­ble car­port, a huge four car garage with an ad­join­ing work­shop and three wa­ter tanks for the gar­den.

The gar­dens are a de­light with an ar­ray of es­tab­lished spec­i­men trees, in­clud­ing a mag­nif­i­cent mag­no­lia in the front gar­den, a jacaranda, cherry trees, wis­te­ria and camel­lias to­gether with rose beds, raised veg­gie boxes and man­i­cured lawn. Young chil­dren will love the quaint cubby and there are pri­vate places through­out the gar­den to sit and en­joy the peace and quiet.

Pol­ished floor­boards and high ceil­ings are an orig­i­nal fea­ture found in the en­try hall and through­out the first floor of the home.

The din­ing room, one of the bed­rooms and the kitchen ad­join the hall, as well as the stairs lead­ing to the up­per level. Light, fresh and func­tional, the kitchen high­lights stone work sur­faces, a fea­ture tiled splash­back, West­ing­house gas hot plates, elec­tric wall oven and a dish­washer. Ex­ten­sive over­heads and a dou­ble pantry with pull-out shelv­ing pro­vide stor­age whilst the is­land bench dou­bles as a break­fast bar.

Ad­ja­cent to the kitchen is the liv­ing room, a light filled invit­ing room with a large win­dow over­look­ing the street. Painted ceil­ing beams and a gas fire built into the orig­i­nal fire­place add char­ac­ter. At the rear of the lay­out are the bath­room, Euro­pean laun­dry, sep­a­rate toi­let, linen press and out­side ac­cess to the cov­ered pa­tio.

The sec­ond level is spa­cious and airy with mul­ti­ple win­dows to max­imise the light and pleas­ant far reach­ing views with glimpses of the south­ern ranges. Car­pet is found in the liv­ing area, bed­room and the home office, a gas heater as­sists with cli­mate con­trol.

Mod­ern and stylish, the bath­room in­cludes a van­ity, shower and a sep­a­rate toi­let. Both bed­rooms on the first floor and the sec­ond level bed­room have built-in robes and there is stor­age un­der the stairs.

Well po­si­tioned, the town cen­tre, pri­mary school, train sta­tion and free­way are all within a short drive.
