Contemporary style and family space in this Bungalow classic
In the heart of Blackburn’s most prized pockets, only five minutes’ walk to Blackburn Station and Village and zoned for Box Hill High School, this stunning Californian Bungalow era weatherboard on 981sqm (approx.) has been brilliantly extended and updated and offers a rare opportunity to secure a great family home in a perfect location.
From a broad and inviting entrance hall, the combined formal living and dining room with plantation shutters and Baltic pine boards enjoys garden views to the front and French doors out to a stone paved courtyard.
The large open plan family room and kitchen spaces are at the heart of the home and have been sympathetically designed matching period features such as soaring ceilings, sash windows and polished boards. With the preferred north facing aspect to the rear family room spills out onto a large sundrenched decking which is perfect for summer gatherings and night-time entertaining which couldn’t be easier with a newly-renovated kitchen, which features Omega oven and rangehood, and a stainless steel Bosch dishwasher in a central kitchen island.
There are a couple of bedrooms worthy of ‘master’ status. A peaceful front bedroom has plantation shuttered windows, ample built-in robes, and its own ensuite, while a bright and spacious back bedroom, replete with plentiful cupboard space and direct access out to the back decking. Another bedroom leads out directly to the courtyard, making for a property with a strong connection to its charming garden. There’s a fourth bedroom with built-in robes, and a quiet study that could, in a pinch, serve as another bedroom. Other features of the home include, gas ducted heating, evaporative cooling, security alarm and picture rails.
Amongst the leafy, bird-attracting gardens, a separate studio comes complete with its own split system and ensuite. A grassy backyard leads down to a large rear double carport, and there’s ample shed storage for the most devoted of gardeners.
Though it feels like a green hideaway, this grand home is situated in a great location. It’s an easy stroll to Laburnum and Blackburn train stations, and to the local cafés and shops that gather around. The walking tracks of Blackburn Creeklands Reserve and Blackburn Lake Sanctuary are both within easy rambling distance, and the green residential streets on the way make for a charming walk. Local schools, including Laburnum Primary School, Blackburn Primary School, Box Hill High School, are all within walking distance.
