Charm and sophistication amongst a tranquil garden setting
This exceptional family home is a hop, skip and jump away from schools, parklands and sporting facilities. A classic Victorian-style frontage with welcoming verandah, cottage garden and double garage set the scene for easy family living. Built on a large block, the house comprises four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a separate, fully self-contained unit at the rear. From the entrance foyer, an L-shaped lounge/dining room connects to the kitchen, and the first of the four bedrooms (currently a study) run off the entrance hallway. A bathroom with a separate WC and vanity alcove - plus a laundry with extensive storage follow further down the main hallway.
The well-equipped kitchen features a Bosch electric oven and a 4-burner gas cooktop, a semi-return serving bench, and a casual dining area. From here a sliding door opens to a north-facing covered patio that’s perfect for alfresco dining. A group of three bedrooms occupy the elevated back area, with the master bedroom enjoying back garden views and a sparkling contemporary ensuite with shower, vanity and WC. A second lounge/living space towards the rear includes a staircase down to a basement workshop (or “man shed”) - which, for a wine lover, has the potential to be converted to an excellent cellar.
A covered patio in the back garden belongs to a completely self-contained apartment, with a kitchen/dining/living room, and a large bedroom with its own ensuite. This delightful residence with separate entry is perfectly suited to a couple or individual. Generating a potential rental income of $12,000 - $15,000 annually, the self contained unit ensures an ongoing revenue stream or provides independence but close proximity to the main house for elderly relatives.
Other extras include high 2.6m ceilings, a touch-pad hot water system, quality fittings throughout, solar panels on the roof, two rainwater tanks, ducted gas heating, and ceiling fans throughout. Adding up to a most appealing family home in close proximity to the beautiful Ocean Grove beach, public transport and a fifteen minute walk in to town. Land size: 654m2 approx.
