Irresistible Edwardian with the modern touch
Magic happens! Casting a captivating spell, this classic Edwardian charmer has received a superb modern extension and a skilful renovation to create a family residence where comfort and warmth are paramount. Following on from the appealing exterior, the home's interior flaunts a fresh neutral decor, faultless presentation, the high ceilings we all love, bountiful natural light and rooms flowing easily from one to the next.
Fretwork in the entrance hall and several ornamental ceilings denote the period beginnings of the home, while an open fireplace with timber overmantel in the carpeted lounge room continues the story. A formal dining room allows flexibility of use. And then there is the stunning open family room where sunlight bounces off polished floorboards, and expansive areas of glazing make this room one with the enchanting private garden. Wired for sound, the room has a gas log fire, reverse-cycle A/C and an enormous, sleek kitchen with Caesarstone benchtops, European appliances, island bench (with breakfast bar), gas hotplates and easy-clean drawers and cupboards.
Utilise the ground-floor bedroom (with ceiling fan and box bay window) as the master bedroom, zoned apart from the 3 bedrooms upstairs, or use it as a guests' bedroom. (All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.) There is a ground-floor bathroom and a cleverly designed laundry. Upstairs along with the 3 generous-sized bedrooms (each with A/C) and modern bathroom, there are several delightful attic rooms with Velux skylights. One room could be a study while the other makes an exciting play area for the children.
Among the inclusions are a security alarm, ducted heating, an enchanting cubbyhouse, and a shed. The property has off-street parking for several vehicles. While the home is irresistible, the location is magnetic, too. Every desirable amenity is within easy walking distance - the trains, shops, cafes and council facilities of the lively Koornang Road shopping strip as well as buses, parks, reserves, recreation, primary school, and trams.
