A Tale of Transformation
It really is bittersweet for our owner, having now moved down South for a job opportunity and in turn having to part ways his much loved residence that he sadly cannot take with him. A sweeping renovation has uplifted and refined this family-sized five-bedroom home, placing laid-back contemporary styling within its classical weatherboard framework. In recent years, this two-level residence has seen extensive repairs and refurbishments. From re-piling and re-wiring to the addition of insulation and retrofit double glazing, along with fresh paintwork and modern interior appointments, this home has undergone wide-ranging improvements that elevate both comfort and aesthetics. On the ground floor, a cohesive arrangement of spaces is dedicated to both living and hosting. The interlinked kitchen and dining area anchor the home, as the living room spills out through bi-fold doors to a west-facing deck, ideal for basking in sun-lit afternoons. This level is rounded out by a tactfully positioned laundry, a shower room with an adjoining toilet, two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, and a flexible single bedroom, office space or second sitting area that links to the eastern garden through French doors. Upstairs, two additional double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes share a refreshed bathroom, echoing the home's commitment to comfort and style. The exterior spaces are a testament to thoughtful design. The west side features a deck, small lawn, and gardens while the east side boasts a new pergola and patio area, accompanied by planter boxes for the green-thumbed, alongside a small garden shed, adding utility and charm. Beyond its significant renovations, the property also boasts new curtains, the installation of two heat pumps and a new HRV system, complemented by a lounge that features a timber fireplace, harking back to the home's original period.
