Mid-century appeal with stunning views
With its distinct midcentury feel, this architect designed home is a unique blend of vintage appeal and up to date amenities.
An abundance of natural light is a big feature throughout, particularly in the living room where an expansive corner window on the north/west face maximises the light and marvellous views across to the northern ranges. Three bedrooms, bathroom, two separate living areas and a modern, well equipped kitchen are highlights of the floor plan.
The home has been elevated to capitalise on the view creating a single garage with a storeroom at street level.
A large terrace across the front together with a covered alfresco with an adjoining paved patio at the rear caters for outdoor living. Positioned on a generous quarter acre allotment, there is plenty of space amongst the well maintained gardens for young children to play and for family pets.
The façade is a composite of red brick, grey weatherboard and textured stone, creating an eye catching impression from the street. Original polished timber flooring is found as you enter the home and flows throughout the interior. Exposed brick, warm timber panelling and stepped cornices further enhance the vintage vibe. To the left of the entry, French doors lead to the family living/dining area and the kitchen. Refurbished, the kitchen is smart and modern with cream cabinetry and neutral toned laminate benchtops. Appliances include gas hot plates, electric under bench oven and a dishwasher. A double pantry allows storage and there is space at the breakfast bar for casual meals.
From the dining area, a second set of French doors connects to the sunken living room.
Lofty ceilings and the large windows give a fresh, airy ambience to the room whilst the impressive brick feature wall with an open fireplace and wood box adds a rustic, organic element. Custom made quality drapes with pelmets are a further feature. Located at the rear of the layout are the three bedrooms, bathroom, separate toilet, laundry and outside access to the alfresco.
All of the bedrooms have builtin robes, new cabinetry is included in the revamped laundry and there are two linen presses. Also updated, the bathroom features quality tiling, a large vanity, bath, shower and modern fixtures. Ducted gas heating, split system air conditioning in the living room, ceiling fans in the living room and two of the bedrooms plus external blinds on the north/west windows maintain climate control. The property is within walking distance of the primary school and town centre whilst parkland, a children’s playground and the Drouin Tennis Club are just around the corner.
