Stretched handsomely across a block of about 2110 square metres, this period-style residence is beautifully presented as a mix of old-world and contemporary style.

Generous space, indoors and out,
makes this place a magnet for entertainers, as well as tradies or hobbyists who will value the large Colorbond shed, accessible from side gates and perched in its own defined precinct.

The house strikes period notes in its tessellated-style tiles in the entry foyer, the stepped skirting boards and cornices on high ceilings, white lace on windows – including a bay – as well as the decor on show in the en suite. The spotted gum floorboards, grey carpets and pearl-grey wall paint are all about today.

Living areas include an elegant carpeted lounge-dining room – behind multi-paned french doors – which has a gas log fire under a period-style mantelpiece; and a floorboarded living hub incorporating the spacious kitchen. Mottled-charcoal benches, a servery, cream cabinetry, corner pantry, a dishwasher and Westinghouse 900mm cooker fit out the cooks’ domain.

The main bedroom, down a short hallway (with huge walk-in closet) from the foyer, has a walk-in fitted robe and a large en suite with subway tiling, pedestal basin and claw-foot tub.

Remaining bedrooms are down a boarded hallway, as are the bright main bathroom, and laundry with access to a remote-controlled four-car garage.

Flanked by back verandahs, a covered pergola with cafe blinds is the spot to sit and soak up the surroundings.
The enormous backyard has islands of mostly native plantings and lawn, both encircled by pebbles, while a stand of olive trees and other fruit trees yield handy harvests.

A pair of vegie boxes also contribute, and there’s a garden shed to stow the hoe.

On the table as well are ducted heating and cooling, alarm, eight solar panels, water tank and horseshoe driveway.
