Space is a feature of a Port Pirie character home, writes Ben Hyde.
THE spacious feeling inside a character stone home at Port Pirie will be the most missed element for the owner of 20 years. More than 100 years old, the threebedroom house has such character features as polished floorboards, leadlight windows, high ceilings and a bullnose veranda that wraps around the home.
‘‘I will miss the peace and serenity and the space,’’ the vendor says. ‘‘The rooms are quite large and when I go into other homes, everything feels quite hemmed in.’’
The house, set on about 3ha, features three good-size bedrooms, a large eat-in timber kitchen with ample storage space, a formal dining room with an open fireplace and adjoining formal lounge.
The main bathroom has plenty of space and boasts a claw-footed bath, shower and twin vanity. A second bathroom incorporates the laundry and opens to a porch and covered outdoor entertaining area.
‘‘It’s a beautiful old stone home with lots of character,’’ the vendor says.
The location on the outskirts of Port Pirie is another desirable trait the vendor will miss.
‘‘It has lovely views of the Flinders Ranges,’’ she says.
Additional features include ducted airconditioning, a double garage and two sheds.
