Character, charm, and family memories await
Have you been searching for the perfect place to create family memories? Located a short walk to Newtown's finest schools and river-end Pakington Street, this character home has something to delight everyone on approx. 689m2.
Soaring ceilings and polished floorboards enrich the interiors, with decorative leadlight windows and detailed plasterwork paying tribute to the home's history. A gas log fireplace creates a cosy ambience in the dining/kitchen zone, with the kitchen featuring a built-in pantry and stainless-steel appliances (oven, gas cooktop, rangehood, dishwasher).
An abundance of northern light sweeps through the living room, which creates a spacious retreat for everyone to enjoy. You'll love that this light-filled living room opens onto the wrap-around verandah, which connects you to the home's beautiful outdoor settings. The north-facing alfresco area is decorated with a mature grapevine, while the deck inspires long lunches under the shade. Boasting a swim spa and outdoor shower, the spacious backyard provides the ultimate setting for outdoor family fun.
Overlooking the front garden, the main bedroom features a walk-in robe and en suite. Two additional bedrooms (one with built-in robes) and a versatile study/4th bedroom create a flexible layout, while the contemporary bathroom showcases a shower and freestanding tub. The laundry features external access. Other features include smart-controlled ducted heating/cooling (via MyAir app), solar panels, a rainwater tank and new swim spa cover.
Accessed via a rear lane, the remote double garage provides secure parking and is home to a spacious loft. Complete with power, the loft could be transformed into the ultimate kid's play space, teen retreat or artist's workshop. The rear lane also provides backyard vehicle access, while the front driveway could easily accommodate a boat or caravan.
The delights of river-end Pakington Street invite you to enjoy the finest cafes, restaurants and boutiques whenever you please. Families are taken great care of with a variety of schools and private colleges within easy walking distance, including zoning for Chilwell Primary School. The Stinton Avenue shops are a short stroll away, while the Barwon River and Balyang Golf Course are within easy reach. Proximity to GMHBA Stadium and the Geelong CBD add the final touch to this dream location.
