This has to be one of the prettiest homes I’ve seen and if you have a soft spot for old style but can’t get your head around the blood, sweat and tears that go into a home like this, then this is your dream come true.
From the front door a gorgeous short hall of dado, polished floors, high ceilings and fan lights is the perfect introduction. Two generous bedrooms with built-in robes and ceiling fans grace either side of the hall before opening into a formal lounge and dining area with the most beautiful leadlight windows and an original Edwardian fireplace with timber mantle.
The main bedroom is wonderfully large with great built-in robe space and a romantic window seat in the bay window. In keeping with the style of the home is the bathroom where a separate shower, traditional clawfoot bath, toilet and timber vanity are features of this room. A 2nd internal toilet has been provided in the laundry. Unlike the traditional homes of this era the kitchen is not shut away from the other rooms.
An addition of a second living space and rear deck has provided the opportunity to open up the kitchen to this lovely naturally sunlit living space and timber French doors make way onto the deck for a relaxed outdoor living area which is north facing and overlooks the concrete inground pool and landscaped yard.
Also overlooking the pool with its sweet little verandah facade is a room with adjoining toilet and shower facilities that would be perfect for when the pool is in use, for entertaining, for shift workers or those with a home business. The room would also be ideal for use as a home office, gym or teenage retreat. The single garage and carport can be accessed from the street, whilst the rear yard can be accessed from the rear lane for storage of caravans, boats, motorhomes or large vehicles.
A traditional old school 1/4 acre block size and a chook house complete this period package for a wonderful lifestyle, with an emphasis on style.
