‘ Clontaft’ circa 1906

AN UL­TI­MATE PE­RIOD HOME

Wangaratta Chronicle - North East Property Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

HIS­TORY, VERANDAHS, HALL­WAYS, FOR­MAL DIN­ING, LEAD­LIGHT FEA­TURES ARE ONLY THE BE­GIN­NING WHEN TALK­ING 30-32 VER­NON ROAD. ADD GAR­DENS, SHADE, PRI­VACY AND SU­PERB CEN­TRAL LO­CA­TION AS WELL.

In 2016 saw ‘Te Ko­hanga’ in Mel­drum Street change hands and in 2017 ‘Clontaft’ is an op­por­tu­nity cer­tain to gen­er­ate again such amaz­ing pub­lic and buyer in­ter­est.

Set high above the street and pri­vately shaded by both su­perb trees and verandahs, this north fac­ing wel­come lets you in. Circa 1906 and built with pur­pose, design and qual­ity, cur­rent fam­ily has been in own­er­ship since 1919.

Lo­cal ma­te­ri­als and su­perb trades­man­ship built a beau­ti­ful home with pe­riod fea­tures of the time in­clud­ing tuck pointed brick­work, bay win­dows and lead light­ing to ex­ter­nal and even some of the in­ter­nal cedar door­ways.

Triple garage façade to the east side al­lows light and en­try to kitchen. En­closed glaz­ing to rear south­ern veran­dah keeps the weather out and the ap­peal­ing gar­den as­pect in.

The west veran­dah housed the old sleep­out but now sim­ply pro­vides pro­tec­tion and a lovely place to sit or lead you back to that grand front and north­ern vista. Pre­sen­ta­tion and up­keep is a credit to own­er­ship. Re wired, re roofed, re plumbed, bore and sprin­klers added to the gar­den. There are gas heaters, open fires and orig­i­nal fea­tured rooms to be trea­sured.

The home fea­tures a front par­lour, the full hall­way, four bed­rooms and study or take one room back to give a sec­ond living space.

Orig­i­nal in so many ways but to modern stan­dard, in­su­lated, mar­ble fea­ture bath­room, kitchen com­plete, all sim­ply com­pli­ment the best of the old.

An adorable din­ing room has cedar en­trance doors, seats 20; en­ter­tain to your hearts con­tent all in the mid­dle of this great Ru­ral City of Wan­garatta.

The dou­ble block gives pri­vacy and seclu­sion with­out too much gar­den to main­tain.
