Set amidst richly planted gardens, in a peaceful shaded street, this privately built home has been extended to offer spacious, formal and casual living areas, bathed in light, the full length windows and sliding doors maximising the northerly aspect and views over picturesque gardens, an outlook enjoyed from every room. A stone chimney is a distinctive feature of this mid-century home, completed in 1963, adding to the great street appeal.
The wide front terrace offers the perfect spot to enjoy the outlook, while the welcoming entry leads into the elegant, open plan formal living area, decorated in neutral white. A spin-a-fire fireplace is a focal point, although there is a gas wall furnace and a new reverse cycle air conditioner in the lounge. A sliding door opens onto the front terrace, the indoor/outdoor continuity from all living areas a standout feature of the home.
The kitchen offers a large benchtop with a garden window, gas cooktop, a microwave convection oven and limewash finish on quality timber cabinetry. Easy care slate flooring extends from the entry through casual living. The meals area overlooks the rear garden and opens onto a deck, which in turn leads to an extensive paved entertaining area.
The family room is full of light and opens onto a private terrace with a north-east aspect, another place from which to enjoy the seasonal changes in the garden and spectacular spring colour.
Bedrooms and the study, or fourth bedroom, are generous and all have built-in robes. The master offers an ensuite, whilst the neat main bathroom provides both a bath and shower.
Brick paving is laid in a circular pattern around a brick barbecue and extends over a wide area. The pergola is covered in new Laserlight, and provides a sheltered entertaining area which can cater for larger gatherings, overlooking the gardens.
A charming, cedar-clad art studio, which could also be enjoyed as a cubby house, further adds to the appeal.
There is accommodation for two vehicles in the carport and two lock-up sheds. A sturdy established wisteria with an amazing trunk is supported by the carport, adding to the spring display. Three water tanks and raised veggie beds complete this beautiful home and garden.
The location offers leafy streetscapes and is just a stroll to coffee at the delightful Gang Gang café. Dickson restaurants and a light rail stop, Farmers' Markets and Watson shops, as well as many sought after local schools, pool and many sporting facilities, are all within easy reach. A smooth and rapid trip into the City can be enjoyed on the cycle paths or light rail.
This is a home which appeals on so many levels, offering spacious, free flowing living areas with a great connection to outdoor living and entertaining space, all overlooking exceptional gardens, as well as an art studio, in a great Inner North location!
