char­ac­ter with mod­ern trim

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Real Estate -

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.
