Dreams Are Made of This…Property ID 1542198When I first saw this home I was "taken" it's not every day that you get to meet a real classic from a bygone era of Hills living, a true survivor of its period and such a pristine example of what was and what opportunity it still offers for the future.
Built as a dream home by one family and under its stewardship for the past 50 years this home has been their link to family and all that that represents and holds, many many special memories, some homes hold a special feel and many folk comment on that when they view - this is one such home.
Your inspection will not only leave you impressed but also imbibed with a feeling of something else ...that....
"Je ne sais quoi
The current configuration of the home is 4 or 5 bedrooms with a single bathroom - there is room in the house to easily convert into a 4 x 2 whilst not adding any rooms, the timber framed construction allows for an easy (er) renovation and the timber flooring and large under croft area allow easy access for plumbing and services.
The house is original as stated but in first class order with kitchen and lounge rooms in typical period fashion, very easy to live with and over time ready to be transformed, both have striking features, lots of glass, Jarrah floors and in the lounge room a beautiful stone fireplace, the kitchen has a very funky corner window to place your favorite retro furniture piece.
The lounge leads off to a glorious veranda with city glimpses this is a real "meeting place" and will be the home of much of your future entertaining. Underneath the veranda is a large cavity space this is where you can tuck away your car, your wine, your tools and maybe your kids!! Oh well if not your kids yourself!!
Outside there's an enviable 1892 sqm block to live in and explore, incredibly almost your own private park next door - believe me this is a secret you will want to keep and your kids will love you forever.
Never to be replicated possibly ever, this is an opportunity to buy something very different, something so very cool, something very you.
