This circa-1930s house is a picture of timeless style with multi-paned windows, soaring ornate ceilings and beautifully proportioned rooms.

The lounge room evokes the entertaining style and sophistication of another age.

Details such as timber panelling and ornate light fittings help create a more formal feel.

Internal timber sliding doors open to the generous formal dining space (with a gorgeous fireplace), so parties can easily flow into the lounge area after dinner is done.

A second fireplace (with a brick and timber surround) in the lounge room and hardwood floors add more appeal.

Plantation shutters have been added, softening the space.

Two of the three bedrooms have period-style built-in robes, while all bedrooms have hardwood floors and lovely filtered light through period windows. High ceilings and timber picture rails are par for this course.

The kitchen and meals area has had a thorough renovation.

Country-modern white cabinetry is set against exposed timber benchtops. Stainless-steel appliances, great light and hardwood floors blend seamlessly into the house’s classy and distinctive features from an earlier period.

Twin sash windows above the porcelain sink look out to the deep, central deck with a feature weeping mulberry tree that further adds to the romantic feel.

The land is square and generous, so an extension is entirely feasible. The fantastic dimensions of the block allow for a lawn and cubby house past the deck, along with off-street parking for multiple cars.

A rare architectural offering for the area, this is a residence ideal for those who love to entertain.

But let’s not forget the place is also well set up for the day-to-day living routines of a young family.
