Built in 1923 this stun­ning, dou­ble-storey home has been im­mac­u­lately ren­o­vated to strike a per­fect bal­ance be­tween her­itage charm and mod­ern fam­ily life­style. Orig­i­nal fea­tures in­clud­ing pol­ished floor­boards, tim­ber fret­work, lead­light bay win­dows, or­nate ceil­ing cor­nices and wide skirt­ing boards blend seam­lessly with the present-day ne­ces­si­ties of fam­ily life. There are four bed­rooms on the ground floor; three are spa­cious, all have built-in robes and there is an en­suite to the mas­ter. There are two other bath­rooms on this level and the mod­ern fam­ily bath­room is tiled and has a shower over the bath, plus a vanity and toi­let. The gor­geous for­mal lounge with its soaring 12-foot ceil­ings pro­vides a cosy re­treat with tra­di­tional car­pets, bay win­dow, or­nate tim­ber man­tel and work­ing open fire­place. A mod­ern kitchen/din­ing/fam­ily area was a later ad­di­tion to the prop­erty but has re­tained the orig­i­nal style with pol­ished floor­boards, pen­dant light­ing and open fire­place. Am­ple stor­age and ex­ten­sive bench-space are fea­tures of the kitchen which of­fers a dish­washer, stain­less steel canopy range­hood, dou­ble elec­tric oven, gas cook­top and space for a side-by-side fridge/freezer com­bi­na­tion. A hid­den trea­sure in this home is the loft- style bed­room; ac­cessed by tim­ber stairs, it is per­fect for guests. Ducted heat­ing and cool­ing through­out the ground floor rooms add com­fort. French doors in sev­eral rooms open out to the es­tab­lished gar­dens which fea­ture ma­ture trees, gar­den beds and ex­pan­sive lawns. The home is an en­ter­tainer’s par­adise with a sparkling Guseli pool and spa, paved court­yard and pri­vate yard. There is a dou­ble garage with a stor­age area, an alarm sys­tem and the 980 sq m block is within walk­ing dis­tance of the CBD.
