THIS home has a lot going for it – from the room configuration, including options for second living areas or converting a bedroom to an office – to the defined semi open-plan kitchen, dining and living. But it is the outside living with a large covered verandah and dedicated outdoor entertaining area, as well as the superior six-car spacious “man cave” or large hobby building, which has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
The top level of this impressive two-storey character home is where three bedrooms, each with wardrobing, are found. There is also a bathroom on this level, with a two-door shower unit, toilet and vanity.
On the ground floor is where the family living rooms, two bedrooms and a second bathroom is found.
In through the main door and from the hallway, there are three separate doors to the left, each into the living, dining or kitchen. These rooms are distinctly defined in their spaces and semi open-plan with one another.
In the living area there is a built-in Yunca wood-burner and in the adjacent dining there is a Daikin wall-mounted heat pump. The nearby kitchen has a mix of character with a modern twist. It features a large central island counter top, which doubles as a breakfast bar. There is a stainless steel oven and a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher. An exposed brick wall feature, which doubles as a cooking surround, is in keeping with the character of the home – which includes ornate plaster ceilings, wooden doors and frames, as well as some wood panelling throughout.
The ground floor also comprises the laundry, a family bathroom plus separate toilet. This is also where access to the covered verandah and private backyard is found, as is access to the “man cave”. This is a garage-type building with room for six cars and space for storage and/or workshop areas. The perfect hideaway for a car enthusiast or tinker.
There is also a tandem garage at the rear of the property. The home is fully-fenced and surrounded in trees offering great privacy.
