This magnificent and unique residence is rich with history and commands a significant 1047m2 landholding in the inner west, presenting an opportunity to secure a grand home that's also brimming with potential.
At the front of this solid 1930's era property is a welcoming terrace overlooking the flat lawn and picturesque, private garden. This is a lovely tranquil spot - perfect for enjoying the morning winter sun.
The very generously sized lounge and dining rooms hark back to a grander time. Decorative ceilings and arches hover over extraordinary parquetry flooring that is original to the home. Each piece of timber was painstakingly hand laid by a Scottish artisan and it is a work of art.
The large kitchen is at the rear of the property and it has been updated with Miele appliances and stone benchtops, and boasts silky oak cabinetry and lead-lights.
There are three bedrooms on the upper level, including the huge Master, which is situated towards the front of the property and the main bathroom has a shower over bath. There is also a handy study area off the kitchen, with direct external access to the side terrace, which boasts a wisteria arbour. Whether it's for working from home, or for homework, this is a very versatile spot.
Downstairs is particularly spacious, with good head height and cooling tiles. There is a casual lounge area, an additional two bedrooms, a study, bathroom and laundry. There is also an abundance of secure storage space and direct access to the carport that can accommodate four vehicles undercover. The backyard is expansive and lush, backing onto council owned land at the rear. This area of the home offers truly outstanding potential. There's easy access along the side of the property and plenty of land to play with - the opportunity is hard to ignore!
There are several split system air-conditioning units throughout the home and high quality 5 kW solar panels mean energy costs are negligible.
The location is central and within easy access to Paddington and Rosalie. A bus stop is conveniently close and there are several schools nearby.
This is the first time this much-loved family home has been offered to the market in almost twenty years. It presents a really exciting opportunity, to secure a magnificent, character-filled estate on a substantial landholding.
