Eclectic Charm In A Premium Newtown Setting
Situated in one of Newtown's finest streets, this residence creates a spacious haven for the whole family to enjoy.
Double doors welcome you inside, with soaring ceilings and decorative leadlight windows reflecting the home's rich history. You'll love that these beautifully-retained period details blend seamlessly with an architectural extension by the award-winning Graeme Gunn. Pendant lighting and stylish accents add to the home's irresistible eclectic charm.
Overlooking the surrounding treetops and GMHBA Stadium, the open plan living/dining/kitchen zone creates a wealth of space for everyday enjoyment and entertaining loved ones. The cooler months will entice you to curl up by the wood heater, while glass bi-fold doors open onto the covered alfresco deck for summer drinks with friends. The separate lounge/dining room is the perfect place to settle in with a good book. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with stone benchtops, a mirror splashback and stainless steel appliances (ASKO dishwasher, Westinghouse double wall oven, Electrolux induction cooktop, ASKO rangehood).
Parents will adore the main bedroom, which creates a dreamy retreat with a dressing room and en suite with open shower. The upstairs level is complete with a second bedroom and main bathroom. Polished concrete floors add a contemporary touch to the lower level, which features three bedrooms (one with built-in robes), a third bathroom, and large laundry with storage.
Other features include hydronic heating, ceiling fans and solar panels. The private backyard is home to a versatile studio, where you can set up your dream office, home gym or artist's workshop. The driveway provides off-street parking.
This tightly-held pocket promises the very best of lifestyle and convenience. Newtown's prestigious colleges are within walking distance, with zoning to Chilwell Primary School. The cafes and boutiques of river-end Pakington Street are also a short stroll away, along with GMHBA Stadium and Kardinia Park.
