Inner-city Character Home on Large Auchenflower BlockThis generously sized, pre-1920’s character home occupies an extra-wide 852m2 block, creating a feeling of grandeur and abundance. Rich with superb character features such as high ceilings and wide hallways, the home feels substantial and welcoming.
Living areas are situated at the rear of the property, spilling out onto the garden and lawn. Private and secure, it feels like your own personal park, with room for a cubby and trampoline and is surrounded by established trees.
The spacious kitchen has been updated and is bright and fresh, with stone benchtops, plenty of storage and quality appliances including a Miele oven. Polished timber floors flow through to the adjoining sitting area and dining space. There is an additional separate lounge room, with French doors opening to a covered timber deck at the side. This is a wonderful, large room, perfect for relaxing, watching TV or enjoying family time.
An enclosed front verandah has been cleverly utilitised as a fantastic office/reading room, with plenty of built-in shelving. This is ideal for homework or the all-important area to work from home.
There are four good-sized bedrooms in the home. The Master has an ensuite while another room has a delightful bay window. The main bathroom has a marble vanity, shower and separate bath and there is a family-sized laundry.
The home has two street access with Sawtell Lane and Milton Road. The property has been fully insulated for heat and acoustics, so inside it is remarkably quiet. There is also ducted air-conditioning throughout.
There is room for two plus vehicles to park off street and another carport off Sawtell Lane. Underneath the home is an enormous secure storage space which could be a fabulous workshop or under cover play area.
The property benefits from the convenience of inner-city living – it’s close to bus stops, Auchenflower Train Station, the Wesley Hospital and is a short stroll to two child-care centres and easy access to the CBD.
