Character and Location
This charming family home in an excellent town position has so much to offer. Built in the early 1900s, the house boasts many original features, as well as the high ceilings and generously sized rooms that were typical of this era.
The pressed tin exterior has been freshly painted but there is still ample opportunity for the new owners to enhance the home’s lovely period features, such as the pressed metal ceilings and original hardwood timber wall lining boards.
In contemporary house design, clever architecture commonly strives to incorporate space-saving ideas to make up for a lack of overall room. However, such devices are simply not needed when there is abundant space available, and this property has it in spades. The three bedrooms are all are a substantial size. Two of the bedrooms have direct access onto a wide, enclosed verandah, which would make a beautiful sunroom or large study. The spacious, eat-in kitchen overlooks a large, level backyard. While the kitchen is neat and tidy and includes modern appliances such as a dishwasher, it would benefit from some modernisation. Similarly, the family bathroom is perfectly serviceable, but could do with some updating.
Just as they don’t build houses like this anymore, block sizes rarely come as large as this one, especially so close to town. At an enviable 872 square metres, fully fenced, with established trees and a sprawling level lawn, this property is the perfect size for a growing family. There is also room for vehicles, with a single, lock-up garage and a carport.
This home exudes warmth and offers an appealing and practical proposition for families being an easy walk to shops, cafes, schools and sporting activities.
