Property ID: RD12323
This property began life in 1929 as a doctor's residence and practice. It has had few owners over the years and retains much of its original character and integrity.
An extension a while back resulted in a casual living/dining area at the rear, while more recently, a superbly appointed outdoor entertainment precinct has been landscaped into the 1264m2 (more or less) section. The home is built from solid native timbers, has exquisite period detailing, huge living spaces, large bedrooms and a seriously big bathroom with charming period features.
Expansive interiors encompass a large lounge, a casual living area, and spacious dining area opening to the rear veranda. An open kitchen is centrally positioned between the casual living and dining areas.
An effortless combination of period elegance and modern convenience makes this a unique home. Vestiges of the past can be seen in the rich timber flooring, beamed ceilings, French doors, lead lighting, claw foot bath, tongue and groove, and a myriad other features.
The woodburner is on wetback, which warms the linen cupboard. There is also gas heating.
Both the playroom with extra toilet adjoining and the double garage are accessed under cover of a veranda. Storage is capacious.
The home has a comfortable year round ambience, being cool in summer and super toasty over winter. And it has been a great party home!
A crowning addition is the all-weather outdoor entertainment arena, boasting a flare fire and spa. The latter is negotiable with the sale of the home.
Street appeal is created by the semi circular driveway that sweeps in front of the 1920s vintage bungalow adorned with a charming veranda entrance. This early housing style, featuring separate verandas, saw the beginning of indoor/outdoor flow, which is so prevalent in today's modern homes.
Another big plus is the location. The property lies between Beerescourt's sports clubs (tennis and lawn bowls) and one of the city's most popular cafes. Schools and transport routes are very accessible.
