Space age

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.
