Historic home in popular TaroonaCompleted in 1897, "Taroona House" is one of the oldest homes in the Taroona region. Whilst rooms have been modernised, many classic features of this late Victorian, solid brick house have been maintained: bay windows, polished Baltic pine floorboards, and ornate cornices and ceiling roses. The formal rooms have views through the bay windows to the wide verandah and garden beyond, evoking a sense of a bygone era. Later additions in the form of a spacious library-cum-family room and a sunroom complement the older style with a modern mood. This 4 bedroom home with its 3 bathrooms and 4 living rooms offers wonderful family accommodation, but there is more: along a meandering path a few metres from the courtyard is a spacious studio complete with bi-fold glass doors opening onto the beautiful established gardens. A gravel driveway sweeps through the manicured lawns to a carport at the rear of the house, whilst a garden shed is partially concealed from view by elegant mature trees and shrubs.
Taroona is a sought-after suburb not only for its leafy environment and stunning river views but also for its friendly community atmosphere. Within walking distance of "Taroona House" are Taroona Beach and Tennis Club, while a popular walking track along the foreshore leads to the local primary and high schools. This is a prime property in a wonderful location.
