Nothing short of stunning in the south
It’s not every day that a landmark property like this comes under the hammer! Secluded behind high brick walls and double wroughtiron gates in exclusive Wattle Downs, this picturesque villa-style residence is being sold (reluctantly) by the owners who have moved to England.
For those who treasure the architectural style of a bygone era but want the practicality of modern living, 84 Wattle Farm Road is the perfect fi nd. Add in an excellent neighbourhood, proximity to reserves, lake, walkways, golf course, motorway, plus top-notch schooling, and you have what can only be described as an object of desire.
Displaying timeless style, the two-level home built on 650 square metres provides a top notch family environment around three bedrooms and a massive lounge.
From the open-plan living area, French doors open out into the wrap-around verandah that leads to outdoor entertainment, complete with feature fireplace. Mature trees ring the front of the house, affording privacy and shade. The professionally landscaped English garden, with its manicured hedges, adds an extra touch of class.
Inside, soaring ceilings and polished wooden floors add to the character of this delightful cottage. What really sets this home apart is the liberal use of wood. You’ll find warm wood everywhere - from the high sarked ceiling in the ultra-modern kitchen to the beamed ceiling in the sunny lounge; and from the bathrooms and loos to the laundry nook.
From the lounge, walk up the quaint wooden staircase. Upstairs there are two spacious and sunny bedrooms with steepled ceilings, the master having large double wardrobes. Both bedrooms have excellent street views and are well positioned for light.
Out back, there’s a totally private backyard ringed by camellia hedges. There’s a spa room, a biggish tool shed, and plenty of space where you and the family can soak up the sun!
The home is fully alarmed but in this secure neighbourhood, it really doesn’t mat- ter! A double car port and store room at the end of a cobblestone driveway complete the picture.
Open home Saturday and Sunday 2pm-2.45pm. Auction on site (unless prior sold), 2pm Saturday, June 7.
