As pretty as a picture kerbside, this Edwardian has all the grace of its era blending seamlessly with the contemporary elements, resulting in rich character and understated chic.

The entry hall, with gorgeous fretwork, has the original Baltic boards that also appear in the three bedrooms, and open sitting/dining room farther ahead, which has access to a pretty deck area.

The widely popular pearl-grey and white palette comes into its own in a home such as this, with the deep skirts and stepped cornices highlighting the white trims perfectly. The colour change-up to a beautiful teal shade on the walls in the lounge room is a masterstroke – more about that wonderful room to come.

The fitted main bedroom and another of the three have original fireplaces and mantels. Each has plantation shutters, while the main has a designer wallpaper accent. All have charm in spades.

The smart shared bathroom, with white subway tiling and shades of grey, has a contemporary timber vanity unit with deep seamless drawers.

Modern floorboards begin in the kitchen and casual meals zone then flow through to that aforementioned lounge room, flooded with light from the north and west. With french doors to gardens, this is a truly lovely room.

The beautiful kitchen, with abundant white cabinetry and nice timber flourishes, has subway splashback tiles and Asko appliances, as well as a servery window to a timber deck. That good-sized deck, under a slatted pergola, is rimmed with leafiness and accessed via french doors from the sitting/dining room. Gardens and lawn are established and stylish and, down the back, there’s a cute weatherboard studio/shed and a vegie patch.

Along for this pleasurable ride are panel heating, split-system, continuous hot water, and attic storage space.

The block of about 450 square metres, on two titles, has an off-street parking space out front and potential rear lane access.

The Strand waterfront and Bay Trail West bike path are a five-minute amble away, cafes and schools are also within walking distance.
