Char­ac­ter, pri­vacy and sur­pris­ing space

The Gazette Real Estate - - Real Estate -

Vin­tage char­ac­ter com­bined with a mod­ern twist, num­ber 11 Main Neerim Road, Drouin is a charm­ing res­i­dence full of sur­prises.

Po­si­tioned on an el­e­vated ser­vice road behind a de­light­ful es­tab­lished gar­den, the home is pri­vate and serene.

Spa­cious and brim­ming with nat­u­ral light, the split level in­te­rior fea­tures three bed­rooms, two bath­rooms, sep­a­rate for­mal and fam­ily liv­ing ar­eas to­gether with a well equipped kitchen.

A cen­tral cov­ered court­yard is perfect for al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing com­plete with a ceil­ing fan, mains gas bar­beque and a row of tree ferns along the fence line.

Ad­di­tional im­prove­ments in­clude a sin­gle car­port URL, dou­ble garage ac­cessed di­rectly from the street, work­shop/stu­dio and a gar­den shed, both of which have power and a con­crete floor.

Raked ceil­ings, tim­ber lin­ing boards and ex­posed brick are a con­nec­tion to the prop­erty’s past whilst the mod­ern kitchen, new floor­ing, win­dow cov­er­ings, light­ing and a to­tal in­te­rior re­paint have brought the home into the 21st cen­tury.

Split sys­tem air con­di­tion­ers in both liv­ing ar­eas main­tain cli­mate con­trol.

With large full length win­dows and the sunny northerly as­pect, the liv­ing ar­eas are the high­light of the res­i­dence.

The for­mal sit­ting room, two steps lower than the re­main­der of the lay­out, fea­tures qual­ity car­pet, ex­posed brick and a raked ceil­ing.

Ad­join­ing is the kitchen, meals and fam­ily liv­ing room.

Ex­posed brick is also found in this liv­ing area to­gether with a built-in solid fuel heater, a quaint stained glass win­dow and a stor­age cup­board.

Slate floor­ing is a ser­vice­able choice and com­ple­ments the neu­tral tones of the kitchen cab­i­nets and work sur­faces.

Ap­pli­ances in­clude a gas cook­top, dou­ble wall oven and a two drawer dish­washer.

A sky­light and sus­pended LED light­ing over the break­fast bar are ad­di­tional fea­tures.

Nearby are the laun­dry, a sep­a­rate toi­let and out­side ac­cess to the side gar­den.

Both liv­ing ar­eas have a slid­ing door to the al­fresco area.

Bed­rooms two and three with built-in robes and the guest bath­room ad­join the fam­ily room.

Po­si­tioned for pri­vacy, the main bed­room is lo­cated off the front en­try hall.

Large win­dows have a peace­ful out­look to the gar­den.

Built-in robes, an en­suite with a bath, shower, large tim­ber van­ity and a sep­a­rate toi­let, which has dual ac­cess from the laun­dry, are also fea­tures.

Var­ied na­tive and ex­otic plants plus pri­vate seat­ing nooks can be dis­cov­ered through- out the se­curely fenced rear gar­den.

Cit­rus trees, a thriv­ing av­o­cado tree and raised veg­gie boxes pro­duce home grown de­lights.

Pri­vacy, full of char­ac­ter and sur­pris­ing space, num­ber 11, Main Neerim Road Drouin is a charm­ing prop­erty.
