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.
