Sustainable Living In A Century-Old Charmer
Sustainable living is at the forefront of this renovated century-old family home teeming with character. The art-deco double-brick build is welcoming and homely. Aspirational permaculturists, professional or home chefs, and families striving for a slower pace of life will delight in the abundant, north-facing edible garden. Further eco-friendly features include solar air heating/hot water, 15,000L water tanks, grey water system and double-glazed windows.
If on initial inspection, it appears as though the thriving productive garden could belong on the pages of a green living magazine, that’s because it has. The functional yet aesthetically-pleasing layout encourages discovery via meandering paths and multi-layered herbs and vegetables in various stages of growth. Space-efficient raised garden beds heaped with healthy soil enjoy a backdrop of passionfruit-vine-adorned fences and espaliered fruit trees (there are 30 fruit trees in total!). The chicken enclosure encourages composting and natural pest control, a workshed and second storage shed keep tools and bikes tucked away. A paved courtyard with striking pergola is the perfect spot to host relaxed gatherings.
Indoors, the renovated north facing living spaces have large glazing to frame the ever-changing green scene, and let in plenty of natural light. A Jindara wood fire with mantel is the lounge’s centrepiece, and adds a cosiness further enhanced by warm hardwood flooring throughout. The well-equipped provincial-style kitchen comes with Omega oven, Asko dishwasher and beautiful timber benchtops. The three bedrooms are generous, with lofty ceilings, in-built robes and characterful sash windows. Sage tones give a calming feel to the bathroom with its shower over half-bathtub, vanity and WC, and the laundry offers a 2nd separate WC. Extra features include air conditioning and roof storage.
This property is ideally located to enjoy easy access to schools, Shannon Ave/Pakington St shops, supermarkets and the ring road.
