Properties such as this one do not come onto the market very often. An elegant, historic house, set on a huge, landscaped block in a central town location is really something special and likely to generate significant interest.
Buyers searching for the perfect family home will be delighted with the four spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, sunlit north-facing study, walk-in linen cupboard and generous storage; buyers seeking a home with character and charm will be enticed by the impressive 11-foot (3.4m) ceilings, four original fireplaces and hardwood timber floors.
While the period features of a Federation home are lovely and much sought-after, some contemporary additions help to make modern life more pleasant. Reverse cycle ducted air conditioning and ceiling fans keep the interior comfortable all year round. A renovated kitchen which features stone benchtops, a kitchen island and modern appliances, including a gas cooker, adjoins a formal dining room with a decorative fireplace. Conveniently, the kitchen also opens on to the property’s north courtyard.
Like the kitchen, the main bedroom and the guest lounge open directly onto a wide timber verandah, which surrounds the house on three sides. The home provides ample spaces to relax or entertain: some family members could be chatting to friends in the formal lounge, while the kids are binge-watching Netflix in the television room, and others are enjoying a quiet drink on the verandah.
Set on a level 1688-square metre block, the landscaped grounds feature established gardens, and deciduous trees that create a spectacular vista all year, and especially in autumn. A rustic shed in the backyard is designed for entertaining, with power and a spacious undercover area, and can also be used as a home gym.
When the home was built in 1908, it was built to last, with a solid block construction and a corrugated iron roof. The interior is in excellent condition, and a contemporary colour palette has been used throughout. There is plenty of room for off-street parking with a double carport, as well additional space at the side of the house. Next to the carport is a lock-up shed for secure storage.
The vendors of this property are moving away from Singleton, but they have enjoyed 18 years raising their family in this beautiful home. Now it’s time for a new family to call it their own. The Next Move is yours.
