UNIQUE PERIOD HOME WITH CONTEMPORARY APPEAL
Sitting in an elevated position in a quiet street, this unique Victorian home is ideally located. Walking distance to the train station and CBD, the property is positioned on a substantial allotment that offers rear access from the next street. With a history that has been maintained and celebrated throughout, the property also offers modern conveniences and a spacious interior that would easily suit a variety of living arrangements.
Set back from the street, the front of the house dates back to 1896 and the period detail starts with the return verandah and wrought iron detail and continues indoors. A central hallway leads to the first of five bedrooms, offering an open fireplace and timber mantle. Across the hall is a reception room – also with an open fireplace – that could serve as a lounge or library. Further down the hall is the spacious master suite, a lovely light room with bay window, large modern ensuite and walk-in robe. In the heart of the home is a large open plan kitchen, living and dining space. The contemporary kitchen provides a classic feel with granite waterfall benchtops, copper exhaust and ample storage. The lounge, with solid fuel heating and brick walls, is a cosy nook, and the dining area opens to a fantastic outdoor deck and living area.
At the rear of the house, remnants of the original miner’s cottage have been lovingly retained, and beyond this is a modern extension. This end of the home includes a large laundry, two family bathrooms and a separate toilet. The split level extension offers two bedrooms upstairs with a connecting walk-through robe (one of these rooms is sizeable enough to serve as an additional lounge or studio with its own external access) and the lower level features a lounge or office space, bedroom with built-in robes and a spacious room that is currently set up as a sewing room but could be used as a workshop, studio or rumpus room. All rooms from the extension open out to the rear yard, with the upstairs rooms enjoying a decked balcony and stunning views across the city.
The established garden is well-maintained with a variety of plantings. With many pockets to sit and enjoy the outdoors, such as a large peppercorn tree, a private paved terrace and the large deck off the dining space, there are ample places to entertain. At the back of the block is a double garage with roller doors and a separate workshop, allowing easy access from the rear street.
Additional features include:
Stunning heritage detail including various open fireplaces and mantles, timber parquetry flooring, high ceilings, sash windows, original stained glass and elaborate ceiling roses
Modern kitchen appliances including dishwasher, five-burner gas cooktop and Belling three-door stove
5Kw solar panels
Vehicle access and parking at rear
Single gate access at rear allows options for entry to the back rooms
This beautifully presented and inimitable home is positioned in a tightly-held, quality area just moments from the city centre. With a flexible floorplan, this property would be ideal for a buyer wanting to work from home or create a set up that offered Airbnb or guest rental potential. Alternatively, an older family seeking privacy and space for all family members, whilst also being walking distance from town, would love this spacious and charming heritage home.
