Portraying unmistakable period authenticity and allure, the handsome hawthorn-brick image precedes a home of contemporary flair and freshness. Favoured by high ceilings and original fireplaces that remain enticing today the two main bedrooms keep comfort in close focus, matched by a third bedroom that may also make a beautiful nursery or home office. Rustic timber floors underscore all bedrooms before flowing forward to lounge where gas log fire brings radiant winter warmth, while the more modern character of kitchen/meals - signified by sleek stainless-steel surfaces, soft-closing cabinetry and split system comfort- nevertheless appreciates the appeal of its origins. The delights of a leafy rear garden are reached via French doors from the sunroom-style laundry, pairing present appeal with rear laneway that suggests OSP conversion tomorrow. City-bound trains, and trams that travel Sydney Rd and Holmes St are each easily reached.
