The community that surrounds this distinguished, extended and updated late Edwardian property is highly sought-after, with Newport Lakes Primary School a popular drawcard for the area.

When you arrive at number 61, the wide frontage and perfectly manicured facade incorporates a herringbone-laid red brick path and side drive, set behind a remote-access spoke-and-wire-style fence.

Much of the period details have been retained thanks to a sensitive renovation in 2010 that extended the floor plan and created great outdoor entertaining areas, with provision to create enormous roof storage or even further accommodation above.

Open the beautiful Edwardian front door to hardwood floorboards, high ceilings and the wide central hall.

The main bedroom is the first of four bedrooms. It has a four-door, built-in robe and an en suite with a twin-basin vanity and period-sensitive tiling.

Opposite, find the guest bedroom, which is living room-large and shares the same picture-perfect view of this street, interestingly, lined with trees planted in commemoration of the 1956 Olympics.

The sitting room has timber sliding door access and is perfectly proportioned, with a sash window, original picture rails and ceiling roses.

Bedrooms three and four both have built-in robes and receive great light.

The extension is seamless and incorporates the kitchen with stone benchtops, Ilve period-style 900mm oven and beautiful cabinetry. Concertina windows open to the undercover decked entertaining zone with timber ceiling.

The large luxurious lawn has a sports area for older kids.

The stunning period fireplace in the lounge room features buttercup yellow art deco tiling and an original timber surround and is flanked by shelving.

The block of about 751 square metres offers the prospect of a pool or second property due to generous rear access.

Hydronic heating in every room and ducted cooling take care of the interior climate.

This house has the space, style and location perfect for a family to put down roots at an address with everything required for a lifetime of making memories.
