Re­stored to 1920s glory

A maisonette to en­ter­tain in, writes Tom Dougherty.

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Sherwood Drive, Glenalta -

A1920s maisonette at The­bar­ton has been fully re­stored to the per­fect en­ter­tainer ideal for a fam­ily, the ven­dor says. ‘‘It had a brand new kitchen put in, a com­pletely re­fur­bished bath­room, the liv­ing room we pol­ished the floors and there were french doors put in,’’ she says.

‘‘Be­cause the out­door in­door space is there, you can ac­tu­ally have the out­doors in­side, we kept the back open, it is a re­ally good en­ter­tain­ing house.’’

The property has dec­o­ra­tive arch­ways in the en­trance hall, and the three bed­rooms are at the front of house.

They all have pol­ished tim­ber floors and ceil­ing fans, and the mas­ter at the front has a fire­place.

‘‘The bed­rooms are re­ally gen­er­ous sizes, all of the ceil­ings in ev­ery bed­room are or­nate ceil­ings that have been re­fur­bished, it all has the 1920s char­ac­ter that has been re­stored,’’ she says.

The kitchen and din­ing room is to­wards the back of the property.

It fea­tures a pantry, mod­ern stain­less steel ap­pli­ances, an Asko dish­washer, pol­ished tim­ber floors and white cup­boards.

‘‘It is a re­ally spa­cious kitchen so it is a re­ally easy eat-in kitchen be­cause it is so big,’’ she says.

At the back of the property in a mod­ern ex­ten­sion is a lounge­room, which fea­tures pol­ished con­crete floors and a skylight.

There are two sets of tim­ber-framed french doors in the lounge­room that open out to the back­yard, where there is a lawn area and palm trees.

Also at the back of the home is a black and white tiled bath­room with a shower, and a Euro­pean-style laun­dry with a built-in cup­board.

At­tached to the side of the property is a dou­ble car­port, and there is a paved en­ter­tain­ing area ad­ja­cent.

‘‘The nicest part about it is that it is a very quiet place,’’ she says.

‘‘There is no noise that you can hear, on the weekend it is re­ally quiet, we were quite sur­prised.

‘‘The home would suit a young pro­fes­sional fam­ily with a cou­ple of kids, people who ac­tu­ally want a back­yard.’’

Lo­cated at the end of a no-through road, the home is close to Lin­ear Park, Kings Re­serve and The­bar­ton Oval.

There are schools in the area in­clud­ing The­bar­ton Se­nior Col­lege, as well as pub­lic trans­port nearby along both South Rd and West The­bar­ton Rd.
