Grand Character - Classic Charm
Distinctive with classic charm and elegance this lovely Mount Hawthorn home will steal your heart and ignite your imagination.
Entering through a gate into the private walled space the visitor is greeted by a handsome Californian Bungalow built circa 1938. Sitting comfortably in the established gardens, the home is a picture of yesteryear with sandstone pillars, dark tuckpointing and glittering leadlight windows. You will feel enveloped in warmth.
Entry to the home is grand, the original leadlight front door leads into the hall where there is a glorious decorative ceiling, the walls are stucco in character with its art deco style and original plate rails frame the room. Off the hall there are three bedrooms each with their own features. The main has a decorative ceiling, leadlight windows, high skirting boards and polished timber floor the second bed also has polished boards, high skirting and leadlight windows, both have views onto the front garden. The third bedroom has a recessed decorative ceiling, character glass double doors leading to the living area and an elaborate fireplace with timber mantle and original firebox within. There is an amazing plaster sail boat motif on the wall in pride of place above the fireplace, denoting its beginnings as an early Plunkett Home.
At the end of the hall and in the heart of the home is a kitchen/dining area of good proportions, there are two large sash windows welcoming the light into the open plan design. A step down to a good sized extended living room complete with full height french windows opens up the rear of the home to the green lawn and gardens. Through double doors there is a space which could be used as a study or activity area for kids as this opens out onto the covered entertaining pergola and garden. There is also a neat laundry with a window looking over the garden and barbeque area.
If a studio is what you are after the garage off the rear lane has been plaster lined and converted into a handy space. Complete with aircon and carpet this area could be anything you want it to be.
