The Gazette Real Estate - - VIEW -

Nes­tled amidst pri­vate park­like grounds, this en­chant­ing home in one of War­ragul’s ex­clu­sive pock­ets of­fers a priv­i­leged life­style for the for­tu­nate few. The five bed­room, three bath­room res­i­dence is po­si­tioned on a 4,899m2 land­scaped al­lot­ment in Ar­mours Road, a semi ru­ral set­ting of pres­tige prop­er­ties on the south east fringe of town. Crafts­man built and with the time­less ap­peal of a coun­try manor, the in­te­rior is warm and invit­ing with ex­posed tim­bers and brick­work whilst lofty cathe­dral ceil­ings and large Colo­nial style win­dows cre­ate a feel­ing of space. Spread over two lev­els, the lay­out com­prises four gen­er­ous size bed­rooms, in­clud­ing the main bed­room with an en­suite, sep­a­rate for­mal and fam­ily liv­ing ar­eas, re­fur­bished kitchen, up­dated fam­ily bath­room, sep­a­rate toi­let and a util­i­ties room on the ground floor. A large games or rum­pus room with a built-in bar, bed­room five in­clud­ing an en­suite and un­der roof stor­age are found on the sec­ond level. Out­door en­ter­tain­ing can be en­joyed on the ex­ten­sive paved pa­tio or pri­vate pock­ets through­out the grounds un­der the shade of ma­ture trees. Level lawn at the rear of the prop­erty will ac­com­mo­date a game of sum­mer cricket for en­er­getic fam­ily mem­bers. im­prove­ments in­clude a re­mote con­trolled garage URL, vis­i­tor park­ing, a 9m x 5m steel stor­age shed, wa­ter tanks plus town wa­ter con­nec­tion.

Set back from the road and screened by es­tab­lished trees, the res­i­dence is pri­vate and quiet. A horse­shoe drive, wind­ing

its way to the front of the home, al­lows safe and easy ac­cess.

From the tiled foyer, a step down leads to the for­mal sit­ting room, a cosy room with a brick open fire place, built-in bar and a large win­dow fram­ing the gar­den vista. Ad­join­ing is the for­mal din­ing room with out­side ac­cess, then through to the kitchen and spa­cious fam­ily liv­ing area. White gloss cab­i­netry, stone counter tops and a glass splash­back are a stylish up­date, to­gether with new ap­pliFur­ther an­ces in­clud­ing Elec­trolux dual wall ovens, a five burner gas cook­top and a Glem dish­washer. Numer­ous draw­ers, a small ap­pli­ance cup­board and a walk-in pantry, cre­ated un­der the stairs, al­low an abun­dance of stor­age. Tim­ber high­lights in the cab­i­netry and servery add an or­ganic ele­ment and pro­vide a vis­ual link to the orig­i­nal ar­chi­tec­tural as­pects in the liv­ing area. Re­newed floor tiles are a modern as well as prac­ti­cal choice through­out this much used space. Two sets of slid­ing glass doors from the fam­ily room lead to the rear pa­tio. From the meals area a cor­ri­dor links the bed­rooms, bath­room and the util­i­ties room with a sep­a­rate toi­let. A free stand­ing bath, semi-frame­less shower and a van­ity unit are fea­tured in the re­vamped bath­room. Built-in robes are found in the three se­condary bed­rooms, a walk-in robe is in­cluded in the main bed­room and there is a dou­ble linen press and new cab­i­netry in the util­i­ties room. Stairs from the en­try foyer lead to the sec­ond level. Tim­ber also fea­tures here with stained dado, a lined ceil­ing and large beams cre­at­ing a more ca­sual am­bi­ence. Par­tially open to the ground floor and with a large clerestory win­dow, the liv­ing area feels light and airy. Split sys­tem air con­di­tion­ers and a ceil­ing fan in both the liv­ing area and the bed­room on this level main­tain cli­mate comfort. Gas heat­ing and a ceil­ing fan in the fam­ily room, ex­ter­nal blinds on the west fac­ing bed­room and sit­ting room win­dows, qual­ity drapes, light fit­tings and car­pets in the for­mal liv­ing ar­eas, rum­pus and bed­rooms are fur­ther fea­tures. For the buyer in the mar­ket for a char­ac­ter home, qual­ity built and where pri­vacy is a pri­or­ity, then this is a prop­erty sure to im­press.
