Federation Style Sandstone Fronted Maisonette
Step through the front gate of this classic sandstone fronted maisonette and be captivated by the magnetic appeal of craftsmanship from a bygone era. Ornate lace work enhances the bull nose verandah while archetypal brick quoin work and a federation dutch gable invite us into the home.
A four panel timber door direct from the era has leadlight windows to the side and above, highlighted by the polished timber floor boards of the entrance hall. Lofty 3.5m ceilings and a feature archway combine to produce a heritage ambience that flows effortlessly throughout the home.
There are 3 bedrooms that all boast open fire places complete with the intricate design work that homes of status from the day demanded. Bedroom 1 has polished timber floors, with bedrooms 2 & 3 offering fresh carpet. The entrance hall opens out into a central lounge with polished timber floors and ornate ceiling rose and cornices. A fire place will allow for a comfortable winter ambience and a split system air conditioner will moderate the summer temperature.
A functional kitchen has space for a small table for light meals. A modern stove is an asset and a skylight over will keep the room bright and welcoming. A tiled bathroom has a bath and separate shower alcove with a modern vanity adding a contemporary appeal. A separate toilet and a lobby / laundry area complete the interior.
A spacious rear courtyard offers a timber framed pergola over a paved patio, great for entertaining in the more moderate months and a terrific place for a future upgraded outdoor area. A double garage has rear access from Rose Lane and incorporates a drive through to a carport, enabling 3 cars to be securely parked off street.
