The mid-1970s house retains era-defining archways and ornate cornices, as well as the original Tasmanian oak floorboards laid virtually throughout – including bedrooms. The look has much character, and more recent tweaks include a revamped kitchen and understated updates.
Entry is to a wide foyer, with mirrored archway ahead and, to the left, a tri-zone arrangement of step-down lounge room, dining room and step-down study. Each area has archway entry and the floorboards take a starring role. A small room next door to the study could serve as fourth bedroom if needed.
With an arched servery to the dining room, the good-sized kitchen has white 2pac cabinetry, two-door pantry and dishwasher.
The three bedrooms, each with mirrored wardrobe and ceiling fan, share a hallway with a two-way bathroom which has a corner spa and linen closet.
Two split-systems and external awnings on all windows are welcome inclusions.
The driveway heads through wrought-iron gates, under a huge carport and onwards to a double garage/man-cave with potbelly stove. Glass triple sliding doors open from the garage’s side to a large, paved courtyard rimmed with mature magnolia, hibiscus and apricot trees. The garage cleverly transforms into entertainment space for outdoor gatherings, and there’s an undercover deck overlooking the easy-care courtyard as well.
