Home of the week – 201 Centre St, Heidelberg


SITUATED on an elevated section, this four bedroom, two living area, family home in the quiet suburb of Heidelberg offers a diversity of options.

Whether for a family, extended family or those wanting to have the option of hosting guests or visitors, this double-storied home will appeal to many.

Built in the 1980s, it is double-glazed throughout with the second storey exterior reclad.

Oozing street appeal, with its front lawn sweeping to the entrance, it is welcoming to step into the spacious north-facing entry.

To the right is the lounge with a modern bay window, which is soaked in sunlight, as is the other living area to the left, which also extends to include the spacious open-plan dining area and kitchen. The tiled kitchen floor flows to the back door and sizable laundry, which has been modernised. Water heating is by gas.

One of the two family bathrooms, which has a unique waterfall glass tap and glass-top vanity with make-up lighting, corner shower, heated towel rail and toilet, is located downstairs next to a large west-facing double bedroom. This could be perfect to accommodate an extended family member or be used as a guest room.

With views overlooking the suburbs, the other three north-facing double bedrooms, with built-in wardrobes are on the second level, along with the second family bathroom which has a spa bath with a shower, vanity and toilet.

The room across the hall from the bedrooms offers many options, and could be used as an office, hobby or sewing room or simply for storage, or a children’s playroom.

In the garage at the rear of the house is another toilet and kitchen which could be developed. There is also plenty of off-street parking.

Park-like grounds at the rear of the property for the children to play in means no back neighbours.
