THIS beautiful and substantial character home, situated within walking distance of the popular Windsor shopping precinct, has been tastefully renovated and updated throughout – making it the perfect place to lay family foundations.
The often-admired home has five bedrooms, two on the ground floor and three on the second. There are two exquisite bathrooms, a super-modern kitchen and spacious dining and living areas – perfect for large family living and entertaining.
The home has a mixture of substantial quality carpets and exposed wooden flooring, complemented by wooden doors and architraves. There are also ornate ceilings and wooden window frames.
Crisp white paint adorns most walls and feature wallpaper is used to enhance spaces within the home. There is also distinct lighting used strategically throughout – as well as a perfectly placed skylight in the kitchen.
The modern kitchen features a concrete matt-finish counter top. There are plenty of cupboards and drawers, as well as matching stainless steel appliances, which include a five-burner gas hob, extra large oven, rangehood and dishwasher. There is also a large breakfast bar.
The semi open-plan dining room is nearby, and features space for a second seating area. There is also built-in cupboards for storage. The formal lounge is spacious and inviting and there is an open fireplace, with an ornate surround, which adds to the wall-mounted heat pumps in this dry and warm home.
The ground floor bathroom has two access points, including one straight from a bedroom – which would be the perfect oasis for visiting family. The second bathroom is upstairs.
Outside, there is a large covered deck straight off the kitchen area. This has an electric louvre roof, as well as a large free-standing fireplace.
The section is fully fenced and has the added bonus of modern electric-gated access to the driveway which leads to the internal-access garage. The manicured yard is defined, with raised grass areas, concrete pathways, box hedging, mature trees and hedges. There are also raised vegetable gardens, a garden shed and clothesline.
