Sleek and mod­ern in a fan­tas­tic area

The Courier-Mail - Property - - REALESTATE MARKET PLACE - HANNAH MCDON­ALD

A NORTH-FAC­ING el­e­vated cor­ner al­lot­ment on 832sq m gives this house ap­peal, says agent Nick Pen­klis.

“Com­bined with a frontage of more than 40m, the al­lot­ment presents a very rare op­por­tu­nity in an area of high de­mand – it’s hard to find a block of this size in Auchen­flower and while the res­i­dence is live­able as is, there is still room to ren­o­vate and cap­i­talise on its po­si­tion,” Mr Pen­klis said.

A front cov­ered deck of­fers sweep­ing street views and wraps around the house to a pri­vate rear pa­tio and sec­ond cov­ered space from where neigh­bour­hood views and an es­tab­lished back­yard can be en­joyed.

The fam­ily res­i­dence of­fers mul­ti­ple ac­cess points, in­clud­ing from a cen­tral lounge and an open-plan liv­ing and din­ing space lo­cated off the front deck on the up­per level.

Mr Pen­klis said the property had re­ceived pre-war and post­war ren­o­va­tions, with the most re­cent ren­o­va­tions be­ing to the kitchen and bath­room.

Equipped with a dish­washer, the kitchen sits along­side the open-plan liv­ing and din­ing space, with th­ese ar­eas ac­cen­tu­ated by am­ple win­dows at­tract­ing plenty of nat­u­ral light.

Tim­ber bi-fold doors open­ing to the front and rear decks also at­tract abun­dant light to the main liv­ing ar­eas, while help­ing to cre­ate a seam­less flow be­tween in­door and out­door liv­ing.

The res­i­dence’s bed­rooms are spread across the sin­glelevel de­sign. One is lo­cated near the lounge and a front study and in­cludes built-in wardrobes and ac­cess through dou­ble doors to the pa­tio.

An­other bed­room and a bath­room are cen­trally lo­cated, while two more bed­rooms and a laun­dry with ex­ter­nal ac­cess to a cov­ered dry­ing court are fur­ther past the kitchen.

One of th­ese bed­rooms has built-in wardrobes, while the main, en­joy­ing pri­vacy at the very rear of the floor, has both built-in wardrobes and an en­suite.

Fur­ther com­ple­ment­ing the house’s mod­ern lay­out is a neu­tral colour scheme, air­con­di­tion­ing and pol­ished tim­ber floors through­out.

Un­derneath the res­i­dence is a garage and stor­age area.
