Space is a dream come true


MYR­TLE Lodge, built about 1890, is a ren­o­vated fam­ily res­i­dence with east­erly city views.

Sit­ting on 498sq m, it is filled with char­ac­ter fea­tures in­clud­ing or­nate arch­ways, lace­work balustrades, re­stored fire­places and pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing.

Up­stairs, an open-plan kitchen and din­ing space ex­tends through bi-fold­ing doors to a tim­ber ve­randa with ceil­ing fans span­ning the north­east­ern side of the house and let­ting in plenty of nat­u­ral light and breezes.

Next to the din­ing area is a for­mal lounge, with both of these spa­ces in­clud­ing fire­places framed by brick.

Op­po­site the lounge are a bath­room and of­fice while to­wards the front of the floor are two bed­rooms, one with built-in wardrobes and a bay win­dow seat, and the other, the main, with a walk-in wardrobe and an en­suite. Both bed­rooms open through dou­ble doors to the ve­randa.

Down­stairs, two more bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes, a read­ing room and lounge room with fire­place open to a pa­tio that wraps the house and bor­ders an es­tab­lished back­yard and park­ing space for four cars.

There is also a kitch­enette, bath­room and laun­dry on the lower level.

Other fea­tures of the res­i­dence in­clude a built-in Bose sound sys­tem, tim­ber cab­i­netry, re­mote-con­trolled en­try gate and ducted and split sys­tem air­con­di­tion­ing.
