A new ‘Prospect’ awaits …

Standing as proud today as it did in 1929; there is much to love in this Gentleman’s Bungalow from the picturesque weeping cherry trees to the delightful box bay windows and the charismatic entrance.

Open the front gate to unfurl the delights hidden behind the hedge and beyond. The garden delights with established plantings and potted colour which frames the classic stone and brick façade. The gabled grand entrance will capture your heart which will no doubt have you craving for more.

As you step into the home, you are greeted in the entrance foyer or sitting room with fireplace, ornate woodwork, and intrinsic pine & jarrah flooring; it is the perfect place to receive your guests. To the front of the property is the master suite which takes advantage of its sunny northern aspect through the glorious bay windows which genuinely portray the essence and era of the home. Bedroom two is also located to the front of the house and benefits from a bay window and is serviced by the adjoining bathroom which also services bedroom three. The fourth bedroom is off the master bedroom and serviced by the second bathroom.

The formal dining area is located in the centre of the home which then flows into the kitchen which is located to the rear of the home with adjacent meals area. The kitchen is complete with stone benchtops, dual draw Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and sizable pantry. Uniquely featuring a series of Georgian style windows that open up to provide a picturesque view over the rear gardens and invites the outdoors in.

Outdoors is a rustic canvas ready and waiting for invigoration with the advantage of many established features including a standard weeping cherry tree and standard weeping mulberry tree that are both a rarity in their size.
