This week’s House of the Week – 182 Kelvin St


THIS classically beautiful home is deceptive.

Outside, it appears to be a standard 1920s house. However, it is not until you enter this home that you realise how much work has been completed to bring it into the 21st century, while also retaining elements of its original character.

As well as being in a sought-after area, it is also a close walking distance to the city, cafes, schools and amenities.

Sited opposite Queens Park, this three double bedroom, two modern bathroom home will delight and surprise.

Entering the welcoming, spacious hall, a huge mirror at the end adds to the impression of space.

Throughout the home, the passive tones amplify the peaceful, calming and relaxing atmosphere.

While being spacious, each of the bedrooms has its own character, with lead-light windows, a detailed plaster ceiling and an art-deco-style tiled fireplace in the front bedroom.

The master bedroom, which looks on to the rose garden adds to the tranquility, with its cathedral-like ceilings adding to the ambience.

As well as being insulated in the ceiling and underfloor, heating is by an HRV system, as well as a heat pump in the hall. There is also a modern woodburner in the lounge.

Beautifully and tastefully renovated, the kitchen/dining, lounge, laundry and second bathroom have a melding of the modern while retaining the classical beauty of a past era.

The modern appliances – cooktop, oven, stainless steel dishwasher, rangehood – and double sink, classy splashback and concrete bench and breakfast area in the kitchen complement the home and luxurious style.

A skylight floods light throughout this area.

The adjacent lounge, with its stunning wooden ceiling and neutral decor, continues the peaceful, charming and calming theme, with a door leading to a classical front veranda.

Fenced and hedged, the well-manicured grounds are compact, with box hedging leading to the leadlighted front door and lounge door under the veranda.
