re­laxed liv­ing in a char­ac­ter home

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - West -

EN­JOY the el­e­gant sur­round­ings of this char­ac­ter home while liv­ing a re­laxed life­style just a short dis­tance from the beach.

Agent Troy Ty­dall says this kind of re­laxed el­e­gance does not ap­pear on the mar­ket of­ten so buy­ers will snap up this home.

‘‘There is al­ways some­thing dif­fer­ent with char­ac­ter prop­er­ties and this one has the added bonus of a su­perb lo­ca­tion,’’ he says.

‘‘Peo­ple like this sort of home be­cause there are never two the same.’’

The lay­out has the en­trance point set back from the front.

Three bed­rooms are the first rooms that can be ac­cessed from the en­trance – two have a fire­place. A fourth bed­room is at the rear of the home.

A large, for­mal lounge room is sep­a­rated from the rest of the liv­ing space.

This room fea­tures a slow-com­bus­tion heater sur­rounded by an at­trac­tive brick chim­ney with a white­wash ef­fect.

At the rear of the home is the kitchen and in­for­mal meals, with a handy study area.

‘‘The kitchen and bath­room have been fully ren­o­vated so there is noth­ing for the new own­ers to do when they move in,’’ Mr Ty­dall says.

The large L-shape kitchen of­fers am­ple cup­board and bench space, a dish­washer, stain­less-steel oven and splash­backs plus built-in wine stor­age.

The kitchen space will come in handy be­cause friends will cer­tainly drop by to join the fam­ily in the large, heated salt­wa­ter swim­ming pool. The pool is at the side of the home, and is sur­rounded by deck­ing. A small wa­ter fea­ture per­fectly fin­ishes the set­ting. At the back, there is plenty of room to sit and re­lax on a sec­ond decked area that is cov­ered by a per­gola.

The home is on cor­ner block in the pop­u­lar coastal lo­ca­tion.

It is a short walk to the beach and close to the Sem­a­phore Rd re­tail and restau­rant district.

‘‘Cor­ner blocks are very pop­u­lar be­cause you only have one neigh­bour and dual ac­cess points,’’ Mr Ty­dall says.
