relaxed living in a character home
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.
