Victoria Street is a pretty pocket of Sunshine. The interwar facade with five sash windows of this residence neighbours similar properties and you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in another suburb entirely.

Built in the 1920s, the house has original, Baltic floorboards making for a solid foundation.

Other period detail includes delicate, original plasterwork in the front sitting room (or fourth bedroom).

Opposite is the first of three bedrooms with period style-built-in robes.

The main bedroom has built-in robes and there’s access to the two-way bathroom – part of 2006 renovations that doubled the size of the property. Here, 2pac white cabinetry and an all-white decor rounds out a contemporary family bathroom.

The third bedroom, currently used as a nursery, is similarly dressed.

The bulk of the renovation at the rear of the house includes new Baltic floorboards and the inset large country-style kitchen with hardwood benchtops and loads of cupboard space.

The lounge room and meals area has three-metre ceilings, with extra trusses put in during the renovations. An entirely new roof was also installed as part of the renovations.

Doors open to a paved undercover patio and lawn.

The lemon tree has been rescued and made a feature in the hard-working backyard, which has two well-built raised vegetable gardens.

Beyond, there’s off-street parking for one car and a double garage currently with sone car space and a sizeable workshop.

Other additions include ducted gas heating, a split-system in the lounge room, a European laundry and a powder room for guests.

Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Primary School and the new Sunshine station are both within a few minutes’ walk.

Tom O’Brien Park, which has been recently updated and the multi-million dollar bike path create fantastic family-friendly amenities nearby.

This whole area is renewing and this property a good example of it.
