FAMILY RETREAT IN CHARLESTOWN
Out front of this 1940s era home is an extensive lawn surrounded by large trees which is like your own park BBQ picnic area – with enough space for kids to run around and play cricket or skateboard up & down the drive – no worries about traffic as it’s a super quiet street in this contented neighbourhood, though only a short distance to Charlestown Square.
The 1046m2 block has parking for up to 8 cars and caravan/boat. The house has been tastefully renovated incorporating some interesting, quality contemporary features whilst maintaining the vintage character.
The front porch with hardwood timber railing has views towards Mt.Sugarloaf, enter and to the left is the main bedroom with BIR, next the central bathroom.
Past the second bedroom (also BIR) encounter the spacious open plan kitchen/living/dining area. There’s high performance tallowwood flooring, exposed beams, a very impressive huge 40mm Caesar Stone peninsula bench with integrated dishwasher (Smeg appliances), groovy downdraught exhaust which rises from the bench over the cooktop and soft-close cupboards. Bi-fold doors open out onto a big covered timber deck which embraces a nature reserve and mature trees.
A separate lounge room with funky original rounded art deco cornice leads on to the third, long bedroom, which, like all the rooms has handsome original windows with pleasant outlooks.
Downstairs has a large laundry which doubles as the outdoor entertaining hub. There’s heaps of underfloor storage including shelves and cupboards, a workshop and lock up garage. A full size wine fridge/cellar aligns perfectly with the front entry and back outdoor living space – the Feng Shui inspired design is most aesthetically pleasing.
The side garden comprises a wide lawn and new purpose built veggie patch.
There’s heaps of birdlife around in this happy neck of the woods, public transport nearby; this house has really good vibes and likeable personality – it’s comfortable, it’s fair dinkum, it’s very sociable and inviting.
