PERIOD CHARM & CONTEMPORARY ELEGANCE IN A PERFECT LOCALE
Ideally positioned in a highly-sought after city central street is this absolutely stunning property. Recently renovated, the home features beautifully retained original detail combined with a luxurious and modern extension. Less than five minutes’ walk to Alexandrea Fountain, this quality residence enjoys schools, shops, cafes and Rosalind Park all on its doorstep.
The beautiful Victorian façade is set off by central steps and iron fretwork on the bullnose verandah and, with a neat front lawn, topiary bushes and a white picket fence, the curb appeal is picture perfect. Indoors, a wide central hallway with decorative cornice and pressed metal ceilings are some of the many original details that have been retained. Off the main entry hall are three generously-proportioned bedrooms, two with an open fireplace and the third with built-in robes. Also off the entry hall is a formal lounge with dual aspect windows and a fireplace with timber mantle.
Past this original section of the home is a fantastic newly renovated extension offering a light, bright and modern living space. A dining room leads off the formal lounge and into a large kitchen and a family room. This section of the home also features a spacious laundry with excellent storage; a full powder room; a stunning family bathroom with walk-in shower and freestanding bathtub; and access to the underground, original cellar. The exceptional high-end kitchen features stone benchtops, soft close cabinetry and fully integrated appliances. Beyond the central living space is the master suite with built-in robes, ceiling fan and ensuite.
French doors open from the living room to the back garden. A neat paved courtyard with a pergola laced with ornamental grapevines provides the perfect space for outdoor dining.
