Character home with surprising space inside and out
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.
