House of the Week – 34 Willis St, Grasmere


FAMILY, family, family.

This home oozes plenty of space for all members of the family, from the little ones to the grandparents.

With five bedrooms and two bathrooms, there is an abundance of choice on how a family could be accommodated in this home.

Add in the downstairs north-facing office, which could be used as a hobby room, a choice of living areas, a lovely indoor-outdoor flow and spacious north-facing, private front yard, and it all adds up to plenty of options for a family.

Nestled in a back section, privacy is assured.

The 220sqm 1990s-era Summerhill stone with cedar split-level home and double Skyline garage resides on a 1239sqm section in Grasmere.

Light pours in the north-facing, open-plan living/dining and kitchen area which also has a sliding door to the outside, ensuring an easy indoor/outdoor flow the patio and giving access to the front yard.

With neutral grey cabinetry, a black tiled with white grouting splashback, and highlights of red, the sun-drenched kitchen has been modernised with a six-ring gas stove, dishwasher and island bench. The large adjoining lounge/living area has an internal-recessed sliding door for an easy-flow option.

All the windows are double-glazed, and heating is by two heat pumps, and a wood burner in the living area.

The neutral tones throughout will allow the new owners to easily stamp their own mark.

Again, because of its configurations of bedrooms, some upstairs, some downstairs, privacy is not an issue and the home could be used by a family, as a homestay or bed and breakfast.

Two of the five double bedrooms are downstairs, along with the office/hobby room and large laundry with plenty of storage.

On the ground level is one of the two bathrooms with a shower over a shub, a toilet and vanity, while upstairs are the three other double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and the modernised light-filled family bathroom with vanity, toilet, shower and bath.

There is extensive raised vegetable and flower gardens and a tunnel house, as well as plenty of off-street parking.
