Home of the week – 45 Exmouth St, Waverley


THIS 1930s home’s mass renovation has transformed it into a modern haven in the heart of the highly-sought-out suburb of Waverley.

From its newly-laid carpet to its neat, neutral paint job, sleek light fixtures and contemporary finishes, the three-bedroom house is an ideal pick as an investment property or family home.

If you’re looking for privacy, a new fence wraps around the property to keep it closed off from the street view.

Inside its confines, you will find a spacious front lawn with a garden area and concrete driveway which leads to a large single garage.

Entrance to the home is via a patio and through a bright yellow feature door which mimics the new-wave style of the house.

A hallway leads to the first bedroom of natural light. It has a built-in cupboard and is decorated with an ornate plaster ceiling, as are the other rooms character.

Next off the hallway is a front-facing lounge with a large window looking on to the lawn and garden.

Whether you want to relax in a tranquil spot or entertain guests, it’s suitable for whatever the occasion.

The bathroom houses a shub, toilet and basin, and is lined with white and patterned tiles to match the aesthetic of the house.

A second bedroom is similar to the first, with a built-in wardrobe and plenty of natural light.

The third bedroom would be ideal as a children’s room or an office space.

From there, you will step through to find a new-fashioned, open-plan dining and kitchen area, perfect for hosting friends and family.

The kitchen is equipped with plenty of storage space, while the focus is on the stylish design of the kitchen space, from its smooth stone bench-top to its industrial-look sink.

There is also extra cupboard space at the end of the hallway.

A door from the kitchen leads on to a roomy laundry with wooden floors and a generously-sized bench space and basin, while a separate single toilet is off the laundry.

This area also provides internal access to the garage.
