Feels Like Home...
UNDER OFFER AFTER 1ST HOME OPEN
How long have you been looking for “that home”? The perfect house? Walking distance to the cafe strip and ready for you to live in?
Built in 1920 this immaculately restored and extended family sized home boasts 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms all on 506m2 with rear access.
Re-wired, re-plumbed, re-roofed and extended to almost double its original footprint, you’ll love the thought that has gone into honouring the old whilst ensuring you still enjoy the best of modern living.
The front part of the home has been completely re-worked and all the internal and external walls insulated. There are 4 good sized rooms, you could easily use one of them as a dedicated second living area. The master boasts an ensuite, walk-in robe and reverse cycle air conditioning.
The transition to the new part of the home is through a marvelous travertine tiled hallway, with glass doors accessing a recycled red brick paved courtyard that serves to fill this clever link with light. The new marries beautifully with the old. The continuation of high ceilings, period skirtings and architraves make the marriage complete.
The new wet areas are also tiled with travertine, an opulent touch that combines beautifully, with the reclaimed and re-milled jarrah floor that ensures the large rear open plan living area authentically references the original building.
Large custom built bi-folds, 2.6m high and also in jarrah, allow an easy combining of the timber decked under cover alfresco area to your internal living.
The versatile open plan rear living area is the perfect place to snuggle up this winter. Watch the rain outside whilst enjoying the warmth of your Cannon Fitzroy gas log fire.
Standing in your kitchen, the slab of recycled jarrah on the island bench beneath your hands, your eye travels easily to the back yard. This is a space from which to survey your home, relax with a cup of tea or exercise your gastronomic flair and put the two Miele ovens through their paces.
Both the kitchen and the laundry boast granite bench tops and the home is full of great design features. There is no shortage of power points, there is a network hub should you require, digital controllers for the hot water system in both the kitchen and bathroom, safety glass installed almost through-out the house, Invisi-guard security front door, motorized awnings to the north west windows and courtyard and there is an existing Photo Voltaic System to help cut down those pesky power bills!
Future proofed and with potentially serious eco credentials, in-slab piping was laid ready for hydronic heating (euroheat.com.au) and the property has been plumbed ready for a grey water re-use system.
It is worth noting the newly built rendered double garage is accessed off the rear right-of-way through an automatic roller door. Plenty of storage in the rafters, room for a big work bench and surprisingly well lit. Again this space has also been well thought out. A roller door to the side of the building makes for an easy, open work space should you ever require. There is also access off the lane way through double gates to a large area paved in recycled red bricks, perfect for a camper trailer, boat or just additional secure off street parking.
The property is fully fenced and securely gated for your piece of mind.
Simply gorgeous, inspection deserved.
