“The Manse”: A piece of Park Orchards history.Sale By Set Date Tuesday 10th July at 6.00pm
There's no doubt you're purchasing a graceful, family home intentionally crafted to offer a tribute to life in early Australia. But did you know that this single-level four-bedroom home has a fair bit of history attached to it, given it was built brand new with century-old materials that includes convict-made bricks, 100-year-old Baltic pine timber wall panelling and ceilings and 400-year-old church windows, which outdates any building in Australia!
Affectionately known as 'The Manse' but soon 'home' to you, this refreshingly different Matthew Vaughan creation therefore offers a rare and unique living experience on a prime 3,939sqm (approx.) block in picturesque Park Orchards surrounds.
Inspired by English gentry architecture, this remarkable home has also been enhanced with a modern kitchen, updated bathrooms and a contemporary outdoor entertaining space, all of which complement the home's period aura.
Thick 100-year-old internal power poles supporting the towering cathedral ceilings accentuate the character of the great hall on entry, warmed by an excellent wood fireplace and configured to capture a calming outlook across the gently undulated front garden.
A large island bench, abundant storage and quality stainless steel appliances that includes a double oven enhance the functionality of the modern kitchen, while those working from home will feel inspired to convert the versatile retreat into a peaceful and private home office.
Parents will value the privacy afforded to the large master bedroom, complete with a generous walk-in robe and updated ensuite, while a children's accommodation zone comprising three robed bedrooms, updated family bathroom (with a stained glass window in the toilet) and central living area also grants the kids with their own peaceful sanctuary.
When it comes to entertaining, do so in breathtaking style out on the fabulous entertaining terrace, which soaks up the serenity of the tranquil surrounds, while an elevated backyard graced with mature trees allows the kids to explore the great outdoors for hours.
Furthermore, this enchanting home also features antique gold Chinese slate floors, split-system heating/cooling, generous off-street parking and abundant storage space.
Conveniently located within minutes of Park Orchards Primary School, Whitefriars College, the Park Orchards Village shopping strip, transport and the Eastern Freeway.
