From the moment you step onto the sun-drenched front verandah of this lovely house, there is a distinct sense of being at home. It may be the established character of the neighbourhood, or the home’s sturdy construction—with its solid hardwood frame, they really don’t build them like this anymore—or simply the huge block size, a rare luxury for a central town location.
Stepping inside, the lofty ceilings and large rooms provide a wonderful sense of spaciousness. Ceiling fans and split system air-conditioning throughout the house help to maintain a comfortable temperature year-round. The beautifully proportioned main bedroom features a walk-in-wardrobe and a contemporary ensuite bathroom. There are two additional large double bedrooms at opposite ends of the house, and a modern family bathroom with freestanding bath. Adjoining the main house, there is a bedsit flat with a bathroom, kitchenette and generous storage.
At the heart of the home is a large, open-plan living and dining room with a slow combustion fireplace and polished timber floors. Adjacent to this, a spacious kitchen features granite benchtops and a large stainless steel electric oven with gas cooktop. Next to the kitchen, a light-filled utility room functions as a butler’s pantry, mudroom, and laundry. Solid timber benchtops provide a generous workspace in this room.
Outside, the size of the property is striking: at a whopping 1360 square metres, this is even larger than the legendary quarter-acre block (it is approximately one-third of an acre in the old vernacular), providing abundant room to spread out. The wide rear verandah overlooks an in-ground swimming pool and the garden beyond.
There is generous off-street parking, with plenty of room for a caravan or motor home as well as a carport and double garage. The vendors have enjoyed the benefit of their proximity to schools: no neighbours at weekends, during school holidays, or after four o’clock on weekdays.
This established home is in great condition but there is still potential for new owners to add value. The enormous block size and central location will be extremely attractive to families searching for a home within walking distance of shops, schools, and sporting facilities. If this property it ticking your boxes, don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our team—we’d love to show you around.
