Proudly positioned on a large block of 1018 sqm this property offers everything desired for an astute buyer. The space and lay out of the home can be configured to your needs, from many bedrooms, hobby areas, home office or divided into separate living areas. The search for that ideal property is over.
The home is set almost on the footpath. Two shuttered windows and the central door are shaded by a veranda, and the door opens directly into the old cottage.
Upon entering the property the beauty of the slanted cedar lined ceilings, solid timber floors, the exposed hand made brick wall, and the fire place take you back. To your right you will find a cosy sitting room and the French door opens to the private courtyard delivering an unmistakable feeling of yesteryear that seamlessly blends with today's modern lifestyle.
The front welcome area and the first of two dining rooms are separated by a natural brick wall just over a metre high. Four tiny steps take you down to the dining room, which also has its own door through to another private courtyard. At standing height the effect is of a large open space with maximum light. The whole area invites a warm, cosy atmosphere.
The library is adjacent to the dining room and provides the perfect space to escape. The solid timber floors flow through to join all the rooms in the cottage.
Another step down takes you towards the back of the original cottage which is now a well appointed large open kitchen. Featuring a 900mm gas Ariston oven and cook top, plenty of cupboard space and room for the whole family the kitchen is the hub of the home. The kitchen is open plan and seamlessly joins with the main dining room (originally separate from the main house) which has a Clarendon slow combustion oven, a walk in pantry and a butlers style pantry which is well appointed with a large sink and room for a fridge. The dining area has enough space for a large table making it a great place for entertaining. The kitchen and dining room open up to the private courtyard extending the space and inviting indoor/outdoor living. The courtyard is home to a 100 year old pine which provides the perfect covering for summer bbqs. The kitchen provides the link to the old separate 1920s dining room and this area typifies the synergy of the old and the new and is the heart of the home.
A doorway from the kitchen leads to the extension where you find yourself in an open reading room with plenty of natural light. There is a sliding door which joins the first of three sunny decks and is currently used as the 'back door'.
