Charming and Immaculately Preserved Family Home
When it comes to selecting a cosy family home, this 1930s Californian bungalow – a beautifully maintained three-bedroom weatherboard home positioned in a wonderfully accessible part of Thornbury – exudes the charm that comes with making memories that will last a lifetime.
For a residence about to celebrate its 90th birthday, she is immaculately preserved. Think solid floorboards and rich decorative timber framing throughout, while stunning ceiling embellishments and leadlight windows. Here, you’ll find a strong foundation to build upon.
A spacious living area, flooded with natural light and framed with rich timber finishes, leads the way to an equally bright and light dining and kitchen space. Here, picture-style windows and a cathedral-style ceiling offer a sense of spaciousness – as well as a direct view of the stunning timber verandah and large, grassy backyard – while simultaneously illuminating the dining space and benchtop-cum-breakfast bar.
Spend winters curled up inside tucking into a warm meal while watching lashings of rain pummel the windows, and summers with the same windows flung open allowing in the warm, heady breeze, while passing through the conveniently positioned door straight from the kitchen onto the verandah to entertain guests or simply enjoy a refreshing drink.
Each of the three bedrooms, while similar in design, each have something unique to offer. The front bedroom features an extensive built-in robe and stunning bow-style window infused with leadlight; the second opens out onto a front porch looking out to the carport and front yard; and the third is framed by two large timber parallel windows, providing an abundance of light and a stunning feature wall to boot. All rooms have easy bathroom access, stunning ceiling embellishments and a timber and rattan-style ceiling fan.
Final touches include ducted heating, a second bathroom adjacent to the kitchen (perfect for those weekends and nights you’re entertaining), laundry room, garden shed, carport and single-car garage.
Situated on the cusp of both Preston and Northcote, this stunning weatherboard home in Thornbury promises access to everything you need. Within moments of primary and secondary schools, as well as shops, restaurants and cafes, public transport, parklands and walking trails, you’ll want for nothing more.
