Period Charm in School Zone
This charming solid clinker brick, 1930’s art deco inspired home boasts all the trimmings of a character filled abode with soaring ceilings throughout, rich timber doors, architraves, skirtings and large colonial windows as well as decorative cornices, ceiling rosettes and picture rails. With quality wool blend carpet and floorboards and embellished with leadlight, featured in the front door and windows throughout the home, it graces elegant personality. The stone paved driveway and paths sit among the established and well-manicured rose garden.
Much loved, immaculately maintained and beautifully presented, the residence enjoys abundant light and is set in a tranquil, beautifully tree-lined street where the owner has enjoyed a caring and supportive community.
The three generous bedrooms include built-in-robes with quality paneled doors and an ensuite in one bedroom. The two bathrooms are renovated with granite benchtops. The lounge enjoys a gas open fireplace and flows into the separate dining, overlooking the garden.
A renovation and extension have retained the consistency of period features throughout while incorporating an open plan living area. The extension includes updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and impressive granite splash back and benchtops. Facing north east, the meals and family room enjoy the openness afforded by lofty ceilings and large windows, including the bay window with seating and storage beneath.
Views encapsulate to one side the fountain feature among the ferns and to the other side the expansive greenery painted by ferns, palm trees, camellias, rhododendrons and a large feigoa tree visited yearly by three very loyal parrots. The picturesque garden includes a brick paved entertainment area, quiet sitting areas and a BBQ area.
Also included is a tandem garage, ducted heating and a garden sprinkler system.
Centrally located, the home is walking distance to Balwyn High School and Balwyn North Primary School, close to parks, city tram and bus routes on Doncaster Road and the Balwyn North Village shops.
