ELEGANT TOWNHOUSE ON THE FRINGE OF BENDIGO'S CBD
On August 3rd 1916, the Bendigonian announced the opening of the Bendigo School of Domestic Arts on the site of the old Quarry Hill State High School in Olinda Street. The newspaper heralded the opening as an educational triumph for girls resulting in “untold comfort and happiness in several hundred homes.” Whilst times have changed, the same sentiment rings true for the next fortunate owner of 5A Hoskins Street, an elegant and highly considered two bedroom townhouse conversion on the site of the original solid red brick Bendigo School of Domestic Arts building. Nestled between Olinda and Hoskins Streets off Gladstone and Mitchell; the property provides a highly sought after central Bendigo location.
The clever internal layout combines contemporary light filled open plan living and high end fixtures and fittings with the beauty of the original 5.1 metre pine-lined barrel ceilings, honey coloured polished floorboards and enormous oak framed divided sash windows and doors - typical of the ornate public buildings of the late 1800s. The property is divided into two distinct zones with both bedrooms and bathrooms positioned directly off the central tiled hall and the spacious open plan living zone and brick paved courtyard to the rear.
The formal entrance flows directly from the carport with secure gate access complete with intercom system and the original School of Domestic Arts signage. Both double bedrooms feature 3.8 metre ceiling heights, walk in robes, ceiling fans, telephone connection points and electric wall heating making the property ideal for young professionals or downsizers seeking the convenience of inner city living. These rooms are serviced by a separate toilet and crisp white three piece bathroom with shower, deep luxurious bath and stone topped vanity with ample storage.
The open plan living-dining-kitchen zone is the absolute highlight of this elegant and sophisticated home featuring two clear glass skylights providing uninterrupted views of the ever changing skies above. The sleek stone topped modern kitchen forms the heart of this space making the property ideal for entertaining large groups of family and friends. With stainless steel appliances, double sink, extensive built in cabinetry on three sides, electric oven and glass electric cooktop as well as dual Fisher and Paykel DishDrawers.
Additional features of the property include:
- Split system and gas heater in main living and electric wall heating in both bedrooms to ensure year round comfort
- Gas hot water service
- Cleverly hidden compact European laundry
- Own title – no body corporate
- Single carport with secure intercom property access
- Secure low maintenance rear brick-paved courtyard
