A discreet facade conceals a hidden gem in Bardon - a character cottage that has undergone an exciting renovation, to create a spacious and well-appointed family home. The entry level is home to three bedrooms, before the house unfolds to reveal a wonderful, open and modern living area to the rear.
Upon entry, the original front verandah has been retained on one side to create a charming welcome. To the other side, it has been enclosed to create a very convenient and practical home office, complete with storage and an integrated desk.
The three bedrooms radiate off a delightful sitting room, which has beautiful rich toned polished timber floors and high ceilings. This is a versatile second living area, perfect for quiet relaxation or as a children's play area.
The Master suite is spacious and enjoys a lush, picturesque outlook. It has a walk-in wardrobe with plenty of storage and an ensuite. There are an additional two bedrooms, both with built in storage and all bedrooms have air-conditioning. The main bathroom is also stylish and has a shower over bath.
A wide timber staircase leads down to the rear of the home, where you will find the fabulous open plan kitchen, living and dining. This is a very generously proportioned space, with timber floors, high ceilings, plenty of louvre windows to capture breezes and it is flooded with natural light. Sliding doors open to a deep rear deck and the backyard, creating the perfect environment for enjoying a highly sought after indoor outdoor lifestyle.
The kitchen has been cleverly designed, with loads of storage, quality Smeg appliances and a glass splashback capturing a leafy view. Customised joinery in the living room anchors the room and provides additional storage. There is also an additional bedroom with storage, great for guests or a more independent child. A powder room and laundry complete this level with access out to a huge storage undercroft and easy access to the clothes line and garden.
The flat north-facing garden is not only a wonderful escape for children incorporating a discreetly designed cubby house and sand pit, but a private, green oasis to enjoy all year round. The property includes two large water tanks, which help keep the garden lush, a 3kw solar system and a large double car port, with remote electric gate.
The location is in the heart of Bardon, on the doorstep of Rosalie Village, Paddington and the CBD. The highly regarded Rainworth State School is literally a few steps away and a bus stop is just up the street.
This really is a superb family home and offers so much more than meets the eye. Don't miss this opportunity.
