This week’s House of the Week – 93 Melbourne St, Windsor


ON the quiet, leafy Melbourne St in the heart of Windsor, this 1930s character home has been modernised throughout, while retaining its best original features.

Conveniently located near the Windsor shopping centre, Queens Park and various schools, it is also within the James Hargest College zone.

Oozing ambience, a lot of thought has gone into updating this house, while retaining its character and appeal to complement the era of the house.

The French doors lead from the spacious sheltered patio and barbecue area to the expansive open-plan living area, which includes spaces for cooking, dining and living.

The modernised and stylish designer kitchen is furnished with top-of-the-line appliances including an integrated dishwasher and a large Fisher & Paykel induction cook top which complements the double oven.

Every space has been used to create a streamlined finish, as well as provide plenty of storage with soft-close drawers, and a pull-out pantry.

All the details such as the Luxaflex blinds which have been fitted throughout add to the overall comfort.

Decorated in a neutral colour scheme with highlights of colour, the decor is a blank canvas for the new owners.

The family bathroom can be accessed from either the master bedroom or hall, while a second toilet and shower is off the large laundry area.

Retaining its original features, including patterned plaster ceiling and an built-in wardrobe, the master bedroom has also been modernised with its light fittings, window coverings and decor.

Two of the other three bedrooms also have built-in wardrobes offering plenty of storage, study nooks and original decorated plaster ceilings.

There is plenty of storage throughout.

The large backyard has raised vegetable beds along one side and a large storage shed.

The spacious three-car garage, with a workshop, is another great asset.
