Home of the week – 72 Palmerston St, Riverton


WHEN looking for a home, it is often hard to find the space for every member of the family.

This home in Riverton has it all, and then some.

Built in the 1920s, this character-filled property has all the charm of yesteryear combined with all the convenience of living in the 21st century.

On entry through the fully-covered porch, which has room for a table and chairs, you will find a spacious master bedroom to the right, complete with en suite, including a large double shower, and a walk-in robe.

On the left is the formal dining area, which boasts an open fireplace with a spectacular mantelpiece and beautifully curated arched window. While this room is set up for dining, it would be an easy transformation to create another ample bedroom space here.

Further down the hall is the spacious lounge with a wood burner, and at the end of the hallway is the family bathroom with a shower over bath, vanity and toilet.

Around the corner is the open-plan dining area with another wood burner, and spacious fully-renovated kitchen, with walk-in pantry.

Off this area is a covered-in porch, which leads either to the fully covered deck and garden outside or to the laundry which has raised platforms for the washer and drier as well as a built-in ironing board.

Leading up the beautifully crafted bannisters, just take a moment to glimpse over the estuary before heading into one of the two double rooms, both with vast storage and one with another little room attached, perfect for an office space, sizeable walk-in wardrobe or even another sitting area.

However, the surprises don’t stop there.

On the 2023m2 outside, you will find internal access garaging plus a lock-up garage about eight vehicles or perhaps a business based from home.

Being so close to town and all of its amenities, this meticulously renovated home will certainly appeal, so don’t delay and make the time to see what this historic property in Riverton could offer you.
