This home is an absolute delight from front to back. Original architectural details are featured throughout the home, a wide central hallway, pressed metal 12ft ceilings, timber fret work, polished boards, original windows with coloured glass accents which marry beautifully with the stunning lighting fixtures and window furnishing of today. This home offers multiple living and dining zones, as well as four bedrooms, two of which open via French doors onto a sleepout that takes full advantage of a sunny northerly aspect, and makes for a great playroom/office area. The formal lounge room has the original fireplace/mantel, with the modern convenience of a built-in wood fire. Both the master ensuite and main bathroom are brand new and have underfloor heating, straight from the pages of "Home Beautiful". The ensuite has a gorgeous intricately carved timber vanity, dual shower heads and sits adjacent to a large walk-in robe offering terrific storage. The main bathroom is simply stunning and features include two pedestal basins, a claw foot tub, toilet and large shower, all in keeping with the original design of the home. The flow from the original home to contemporary extension is seamless. Polish concrete floors feature in the open plan kitchen/ living area.
