Mid-cen­tury ap­peal with stun­ning views

The Gazette Real Estate - - NEWS -

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. For the buyer in the mar­ket for a home with a dif­fer­ence, num­ber 74 McNeilly Road, Drouin should not be over­looked.
