Imagine you are amongst the Australians coming away with memories at the close of WW1. This home would have been there with you. Built during the “Roaring Twenties” era, can you imagine living with optimism before the years of economic depression, and you, owning a home built in this era, that epitomised a style of Australian architectural design that came about to suit our Australian conditions.
Here is an opportunity to reach back in time, and make this gorgeous property yours and become the next chapter in its future.
As you walk through the front gate you cannot help but notice the lovely sweeping veranda, encompassing the corner ended gables, depicting the era.
As you step inside the grand entrance, you will appreciate the elegance of the original, internal, ornate fretwork, encasing a clock, period picture rails and timber details all complemented by Axminster carpets and 3.5-metre ceilings.
Turn right into the main bedroom. This spacious bedroom encompasses an original fire surround and mantle. This is where you will encounter the first of your modern day comforts; a brand new, full ensuite, including a generous walk-in robe/dressing area.
Adjacent to this bedroom is the second bedroom of same proportions, also with a dressing room large enough to create another bathroom if desired.
Wander down the passageway past the ornate fretwork to find an amazing staircase leading you to an attic, which can easily be adapted to your family needs; whether it be a second living area, office, parents retreat or an extra bedroom; the choice is yours.
Further along the second bathroom is adjacent to the third bedroom.
The spacious main living area is nearby, which also boasts an ornate fire surround and mantle, with a gas heater and reverse cycle split system. Not to mention the whole home has central, gas heating throughout.
From this, step forward. The bygone era is tastefully blended with the home's modern renovations.
The modern kitchen features a delightful blend of old being new again; including granite benchtops, large gas stove with electric oven and dishwasher; all of which conveniently lead into the large butler's pantry.
Before you wander outdoors, you will pass a brand new laundry with a convenient and separate, second toilet.
Do not think we are finished there… step outdoors onto a new spacious merbau deck, which leads you to another smaller sitting room, study, or fourth bedroom, along with a quaint, outdoor toilet.
Sited on an allotment of approximately 1722m2, which embraces established gardens and fruit trees, the property can be subdivided if this is your way of thinking.
Own your own piece of history.
