Space and sunny north aspect in this renovated home, close to Dickson and light rail!

Sunlight streams into the huge living areas of this renovated, privately built home, situated in a quiet location just steps from a light rail stop.

The arching branches of an old deciduous tree shelter the garden, complementing the charming façade and the sunny front terrace, protected by a stone feature wall, which offers an inviting outdoor space.

Full length windows take advantage of the perfect north aspect and a glass door opens to reveal the impressive proportions of the open plan living space, the lounge with cathedral ceiling, dining and family room. Striking, Spotted Gum flooring extends through all living areas, which are decorated in neutral white and softly illuminated by LED downlighting, with an eye catching Velux skylight over the spacious family room. Comfort is easily maintained, as all windows in the home are double glazed, there is ceiling insulation under the Colorbond roof, walls in extended areas are insulated, while the original part of the home is double brick.

The impressive new kitchen is equipped with a Smeg induction cooktop, stainless steel oven and convection microwave, a dishwasher and vast array of sleek cupboards and solid oak benchtops.
A sliding door from the kitchen and French doors from the dining area create seamless integration of living space with the enormous, covered rear entertaining deck, making for relaxed entertaining on any scale! This is sheltered by a high pergola which has a light and airy feel, and is covered with insulated layers for seasonal comfort.

The large family room leads to the segregated master bedroom which overlooks the garden and offers a walk-in robe, ceiling fan and ensuite with a skylight.

Sunshine pours into the three bedrooms at the front of the home. All feature high ceilings, enhancing the spacious feel, fans, robes, honeycomb blinds and charcoal carpet. The stylish new bathroom is finished with full height tiling and new laundry with storage. A study has a sliding door to the rear deck.

Manchurian pear trees are a decorative feature at one end of the deck while gardens are low maintenance and include an extensive area of raised veggie beds, as well as olive trees. In the front garden a number of fruiting apricot and cherry trees add to the display of spring blossom. There is a wide carport on one side of the home.

The tree lined street is peaceful and it is only a short walk to Gang Gang cafe with its scenic outlook and to shops and restaurants in Dickson. Sought after schools, parks and ovals, swimming pool and nature walks are all close by.
Just a short stroll away is a light rail stop for a fast trip into the Central Business District!
