20 Albert Street,
A Classic Mitcham BeautyThis stunning weatherboard home was built with an abundance of character and charm that has stood the test of time. Set behind a picket fence and framed by a traditional verandah, it has all the period features you’d expect from a residence of this vintage. Original Baltic Pine floorboards, high ceilings and decorative cornices, deep skirtings, panelled walls and doors, and lovely sash windows feature strongly throughout.
Three generous bedrooms share a place at the front of the home. The master has floor to ceiling robes, a box window with an inviting window seat, plus a beautiful, cast iron fireplace surrounded by a rich timber mantle and decorative tiles. The second bedroom has built-in floor to ceiling robes, whilst the third bedroom has a free-standing robe and an open fireplace.
A spacious bathroom is shared by the home's occupants. A large, deep oval spa tub is the focal point of the room; raised for effect, it is the ideal place to relax and unwind after a long day.
The hub of the home is a sizeable kitchen that offers a central dining space, timber benchtops, stainless steel appliances including a Blanco dishwasher, attractive cabinetry and excellent storage. This overlooks an expansive, light-filled living zone. Sunken for effect, it has a recessed roof panel with an intricate design that makes a prominent feature in the space. Large windows and a set of French doors allow vistas to the backyard where extensive red brick paving forms an alfresco dining space, adjoining a grassed play area and a single off-street carpark, behind a secure roller door with rear lane access.
Extras include gas ducted heating, split system heating/air-conditioning, a fitted laundry and a storage shed.
The central location in a sought after pocket of Mitcham and amongst other character homes, adds another element of appeal. An easy walk to an array of desirable amenities that include Mitcham Railway Station, local buses, Mitcham’s shopping strip and popular cafes, plus Mitcham Primary School and a variety of green spaces such as Halliday Park and Walker Park. You’re also close to Eastlink and a number of shopping precincts that include the recently renovated Eastland and Westfield Doncaster and Knox.
This timeless home has so much to offer; an inspection will delight so don’t delay.
