Stepping inside, the front of the home offers a nod to yesteryear, with sweeping ceilings, a wide set hallway and four spacious carpeted bedrooms offering bountiful space for the entire family.

The recently completed bathroom is luxurious in size and finishes, with floor to ceiling tiles, a stand-alone bath, black tapware and expansive concrete finish vanity with dual basins and LED touch lighting mirror.
Offering what so many are after yet is so difficult to attain, the current Owners have achieved the perfect balance of retaining much loved character features and adding to this home to make it a functional residence for the modern-day family. A double storey extension at the rear offers loft style secondary living, with exposed timber beams and Velux sky lights ensuring this area is fully functional for a children’s playroom or as a study for the working professional. Another bedroom and contemporary bathroom upstairs lends itself as an ideal guest offering or for the teenager of the family.
