7 Howard Street,
UNDER OFFER!This elegant home affords a peaceful retreat with a refined, architect designed extension that delivers secluded indoor - outdoor living.
The front facade of this charming c1889 semi-detached home is tastefully rejuvenated and offers a lovely north facing veranda to sit and look out over the landscaped verge, or chat with neighbours.
A superb hallway entrance entices you into the home, leading past the two bedrooms. The main bedroom is centrally located and features generous built in robes and a luxurious ensuite (with deep bath).
The contemporary addition is the 'wow factor' of the property. In the architect's words "The result is a design which incorporates form, colour, light, movement and texture to create spaces which are not only aesthetically beautiful, but also functional and environmentally sensitive".
With a striking open layout, this alluring living space incorporates a sleek, well-designed kitchen and large sliding doors which connect to the landscaped courtyard.
Whilst the front cottage offers beautiful features of the era, the back of the home makes a bold statement with a stunning contrast between the polished aggregate flooring and exposed brick feature walls (recycled bricks from the old chimney).
Across the private courtyard is the second bathroom and combined laundry. Complete with a glass shower recess to display an attractive stone wall.
Just past the bathroom an internal door leads to a highly functional and versatile garage with painted concrete flooring, work bench and room for kayaks and bikes. This is no ordinary garage, as the owners have occasionally set up this tidy space for sleeping guests!
From this unique and desirable location, you can literally stroll across to the Esplanade Park, enjoy a morning dip at Bather's beach and then treat yourself to breakfast, lunch or dinner - the choices are endless and it's all on your doorstep.
