character with modern trim
CHARACTER features of this 1940s cottage are juxtaposed with ultracontemporary design features, creating a distinctive home.
Agent Anthony Vella says the owner has spent the past few years lovingly renovating the home.
‘‘The character looks are maintained but the home includes a modern bathroom and kitchen,’’ Mr Vella says.
‘‘There is also a funky bar out the back included in the sale, which can be seen through the living-room windows.’’
The four-bedroom home features two living areas of good size.
At the front of the home, the formal lounge room with fireplace and magnificent hanging lighting illuminates the landscaped front yard through a large bay window.
The rear living area is openplan, including dining room and kitchen.
This room is light and bright, featuring apple-green mosaic tile splashback and a trio of modern pendant lights in the same colour.
Each of the bedrooms is large, and two feature built-in robes.
Most of the backyard is paved and features easy-care garden beds with automatic irrigation.
A large shade sail provides protection from the sun while occupants enjoy a summer barbecue.
Mr Vella says the home has ‘‘magnificent’’ street appeal.
‘‘The house is elevated and has steps up to the front veranda, giving a grand feel, and I really like the landscaping,’’ he says.
The elevation has dual appeal, with a cellar underneath. Other features include an alarm system with remote-control access and intercom with television monitor.
The home also features ducted, reverse-cycle airconditioning.
Location is another big plus for this property, positioned just off Kensington Rd.
