‘ Clontaft’ circa 1906
AN ULTIMATE PERIOD HOME
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.
