Perched on the high side of the road and close to the foot of One Tree Hill is this fabulous architecturally designed home that is sure to impress. Offering a family friendly 1200m2 (approx) allotment combined with a floor plan of approximately 26 squares, the semi bush setting offers the perfect sanctuary only a stones throw away from the heart of Bendigo.
Enter the home via the shady front verandah to reveal a spacious entry parlour. Parts of the floor plan have been updated through the years, whilst the original parts remain in solid order. There are plenty of design features that capture the era and will delight lovers of architecture from the period. Light, bright and airy, there is space for the family to grow, or the couple to grow old - each a suitable resident.
Accommodation comprises a flexible three good sized carpeted bedrooms, plus a study that is large enough for a fourth bedroom. The master suite has a three piece ensuite attached, accompanied by a walk in robe and ceiling fan. The remaining rooms are fitted with adequate walk in or built in robes, two have ceiling fans. The main bathroom is in great order, and is fitted with bath and vanity unit. A separate shower room adjoins, ensuring queues for the bathroom are avoided! The laundry and separate loo complete this wing of the home.
The huge central kitchen is the true heart of the home, where the household chef can thrive on loads of bench and cupboard space, including two pantries and appliance cupboard. Updated cooking facilities include electric wall oven and gas hot plates, and a dishwasher assists the clean up. Adjacent to the kitchen is the spacious meals area that will house the largest of dinner parties or family dining settings. Flowing through from either side of the kitchen/meals area are the huge living spaces. The first is a gorgeous lounge - the best room is the house! Exposed brickwork is a feature, culminating in the open fire place at the centre of the large room. Cathedral ceilings stretch out above to skylight windows allowing plenty of natural light. The second is the sunken family room with recently updated faux timber flooring. Gas heating and ducted air conditioning allow the temperature to be controlled to a desired level.
Outside, the property sits on a big 1200m2 (approx) allotment that still has room for further ideas. Backing onto a bush outlook, and overlooking the Spring Gully cricket ground, features include double auto garage plus large carport/outdoor entertaining and garden shed.
