This double-fronted Victorian, set on a large parcel of land of about 571 squares, offers new owners not only truly liveable, stylish and generous spaces, but a sizeable backyard with plenty of room for children to play.

The charming facade with original lacework and a timber front porch, together with a cottage-style front garden, give a great first impression.

Thoroughly renovated and extended, the house has great flow thanks to the wide central hall with hardwood timber floorboards and high ceilings trimmed with timber fretwork. Currently configured as three bedrooms, two living areas, the luxury of space provides the flexibility to create four bedrooms.

All but one of the front four rooms has a fireplace with period-style mantel, with the three bedrooms fitted with stylish built-in robes.

The main bedroom has a contemporary en suite. It has been tastefully renovated, within a property that has found the ideal balance between old and new.

The kitchen, part of the extension, has stone benchtops, a twin-drawer dishwasher, breakfast bench and plenty of storage. The large walk-in pantry, a fantastic addition.

The kitchen overlooks the generous meals area and lounge room where sliding doors open to a great deck, beyond which is the sunny north-facing backyard.

With a wide side-drive, carport and single car garage beyond, here is a property that ticks all the boxes for family living.

Currently leased at $1000 per week, this could be a fantastic high-end investment prospect.

Elphin Street is a picturesque, period-rich street that runs from Hall Street (right by Newport train station), through to Douglas Parade with Newport Park and its skate park, playground and running track
across the road. With the water’s edge and gym five minutes’ walk further down North Road, it is understandably a popular location.

Together with popular cafe The Pint of Milk just down the street, you’ll enjoy living in this fantastic family residence, close to private and public schools and Douglas Parade shopping.
