"Skye" - A Piece of Croydon HistoryProperty ID 1669681A piece of Croydon's history is what you'll get in this magnificent character filled weatherboard home, that is believed to have been established around 1891 as a church Ministers manse, who would travel out from Heidelberg to the property.
The home is positioned perfectly on a large almost 1/3 of an acre block surrounded by picturesque and tranquil gardens that will provide an ideal haven for the whole family to love and enjoy.
The family friendly floor plan consists of 4 good sized robed bedrooms, the main has built in robes plus a full ensuite, whilst bedroom 4 is located in one of the out buildings and comes complete with a full ensuite also.
The versatility of bedroom 4 makes it possible for you to create a work from home office, studio or visitors quarters.
3 living areas will allow you and the family to spread out, starting with the lounge room off the entry that is complemented with a cozy wood fire and bay windows that takes in views to the front gardens and one of the stunning old oak trees on the property.
The dining room has access through french doors to the outdoor entertaining deck, but this area might be better utilized for the children's living zone rather than a formal dining.
The real hub of the home for everyday family living will no doubt be the family room off the meals area, complete with crackling open fire plus beautiful views through double doors to the backyard.
The amazing gourmet kitchen is an absolute dream come true for the chef of the family to enjoy, complete with quality stainless steel appliances, double oven, dishwasher, loads of cupboard and bench space plus island bench.
Before we take in the outdoors, we mustn't forget other internal features which include hydronic heating, open fire place, wood fire, evaporative cooling, main bathroom with 3rd toilet, high ceilings, ornate and period features, gleaming Baltic pine floors, carpeted bedrooms for comfort plus light filled interiors with subtle colours and tones.
Entertaining will be a breeze on the expansive back deck that will be the ideal spot for family gatherings, parties, casual BBQ's, alfresco dining, cool afternoon drinks or leisurely weekend breakfasts with a coffee and the paper all whilst being able to see the children and pets playing safely in the secure backyard.
Car accommodation is well taken care of in the double carport plus there is plenty of room off road for another 3 to 4 cars in the drive.
All this is within a short distance to Churinga Village Shopping Centre that has Coles, Woolworths and Aldi supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, schools, parks, Dorset golf course, walking tracks and Mt Dandenong Road that has direct access to Croydon central, Eastland and East Link to the city or the peninsula.
