"Welcome to "Hopeton Manor". This charming character bungalow on a substantial 853m2 (approx) parcel of land was the very first house constructed on Maud Street in 1926 by then owner/builder Mr Hopeton Walkom. The original fireplaces, leadlight front door, decorative dome ceiling, sandstone facade and all other embellishments you would expect to see in any high quality 1920's home are present and in great condition – a testament to Hopeton's vision and the quality bungalow he created which has, through the love of the previous owners, stood the test of time. With so much history, this unique property is now ready for you to add to the next chapter in its life.
When you're talking Clapham; the location speaks for itself... you're set amongst other high-quality homes on the high side of a wide street, you're a short walk to Torrens Park train station and the buses on Springbank Road, a quick jog to Mortlock Park and the cute cafes and boutique shops that neighbour it. The CBD is also just a short commute away.
Picture perfect street appeal from the moment you set eyes on it; that's the best way to describe this home. The gardens are established, but low maintenance, the immaculate stonework frames the home beautifully and the bungalow overhang is perfect for sitting on those lazy Sunday afternoons.
As you enter the home you are greeted by an entry foyer, high ceilings, ornate cornice and ceiling work, polished hardwood floors and that freshly repainted look with a neutral colour scheme throughout.
On either side of the entry are the two spacious bedrooms, both are of good size with polished hardwood floors and the master has robes and a stone fireplace. Through the hallway is a good amount of storage also.
The lounge is huge with reverse cycle heating/cooling, a stone fireplace, plenty of natural light and beautiful ceiling rose work. Next to the lounge is the bathroom with a functional layout that can easily be changed to suit your needs.
The kitchen has an abundance of flexibility but currently has a practical layout. You have an island bench with power, stainless steel dishwasher and storage, plenty of cupboards, both overhead and hip height, a 900mm stainless steel gas stove top and oven and a terrazzo kitchen sink.
Completing the inside of the home is the dining space which overlooks the recently restored deck, internal laundry, separate toilet and ducted gas heating throughout.
As this home falls within Policy Area 8, there is the ability to subdivide and create 2 dwellings (stcc).
Whilst character and history abounds, the opportunity to place your personal stamp on this amazing property comes with the added advantage of not being subjected to the heritage restrictions of so many similar properties in the neighbouring area. With the block size being 853m2 (approx.) and a majority of this in the backyard, you are presented with a significant opportunity to let your creative side run free. From a sympathetic period addition to a modern architectural masterpiece - the potential is limited only by your imagination.
This is a really great space to call home and allows you to buy something now to bank on your future in this extremely sought after and fast-growing suburb.
