The reason that homes like this so rarely hit the market, is that they are very hard to leave. The current owners have loved this place for the past thirty years. They have watched their children grow up in the warmth of this stylish home and entertained their friends over decades and it’s now your turn to create your own wonderful memories in this beautifully big New Town residence. It’s the perfect blend of original period features, open fire places with stunning original surrounds, fretwork, ceiling roses, big spacious rooms with bay windows all cleverly combined with contemporary living. The original veranda wraps around the freshly painted cream stucco exterior which is set on solid sandstone foundations. Enter via the original leadlight front door and be immediately surprised by the size and length of the elegant hallway featuring superb polished floor boards. The four generous bedrooms are off this hallway and there is the potential for five bedrooms should you need.The living areas are simply divine. Imagine your family and friends luxuriating in the warmth, space and elegance of this lounge room which also leads to a book lined library or study (this could be that fifth bedroom or a formal dining should you choose). From here there’s a natural flow to a large country style kitchen that looks out to a designer’ cottage style garden, overflowing with vegies, herbs and flowers, with lovely spaces for relaxing in.
And if all of that isn’t enough (and it is) from the kitchen/dining area, there is another modern sun room large enough for a 10 seater dining table. This room is a suntrap and feels like the hub of the house and adds a nice contemporary touch that sits perfectly side by side with the more traditional part of this captivating home
There’s two bathrooms, both with baths, the larger one features a fantastic free standing tub, modern tiled walk in shower and hidden laundry.
In brief this is a stunning family home, superbly located and offers all the highly desired traditional features of the period combined with contemporary easy living. The diversity of how the many living spaces can be used means that this New Town property will appeal to many.
And finally, there’s a reason why this home is being offered for the first time in almost thirty years and you’ll know why, as soon as you see it!
