An absolute credit to its owners, this home has the right mix!! It is ultra-modern and sophisticated, yet it still retains elements of its historical significance - it is an exceptional example of a fully renovated and extended home which will appeal to a broad range of buyers.
Originally a Butcher Shop pre-1900, the front of the home boasts thick brick walls and a superb cellar which is now used as a study/sewing room. There is the original front door access to Sailors Gully Rd; on entry you are greeted by beautiful hand-crafted parquetry flooring. This original shop front is now converted to three bedrooms, one has a built-in robe (one would make a great second living space or kids retreat) and there are ceiling fans to all rooms. Close by is the fully tiled, modern family bathroom with frameless shower, wall-mount vanity and free-standing bath and toilet.
Extended to the same original level is a purpose-built study nook and storage space followed by the master retreat. There is a fitted walk-through robe (his and hers sides) and an enviable en-suite boasting quality tiling, strip lighting, matt black tapware, large frameless shower with double shower heads; basin and toilet with hidden cistern.
The split-level main extension includes a carpeted living room with north-facing sky windows boasting motorised electric blinds; this leads through to the kitchen and meals area which were historically the original stables. This is a superb space offering space for an eight-seat table; there are north-facing double French doors which lead to the first of two alfresco areas. The impeccable kitchen features matt black with a white finish, plenty of bench space, superb tiling with feature strip lighting and all modern conveniences. There's a large walk-in pantry with plenty of shelve space and beautiful satin blackbutt hardwood floors. Entry to the home is through a separate door leading from the small grassed front yard between the garage and home; as you enter you will notice the feature-wall with original Victorian bricks sourced from the home.
The home boasts ducted gas heating and a mix of ducted evaporative and refrigerative cooling; keeps cool in the summer and warmer in the winter with its double brick and north-facing aspects.
Beyond the double French doors is a huge alfresco space boasting exposed aggregate concrete, cleverly positioned lighting and views to the fully landscaped yard which boast plenty of grassed area for the kids, a brick pond (which was the original horse trough) with water feature and a feeling of privacy. The second alfresco space consists of a timber deck and would be the ideal spot for your barbie or slow cooker.
There is a wider than normal double auto garage with rear roller-door access and a driveway which leads to the 7m x 9m powered shed. This shed boasts double roller-doors, power, water and a wood heater; there is also rear vehicle access from the bush reserve out back which also makes a lovely private buffer - you would hardly notice neighbours.
There is literally nothing to do, the vendors have meticulously renovated and extended this home over seven years; you won't find, nor could you replicate such an immaculate example of a property.
