Embrace the best of the hills living from Blackwood.
Can't look past the regal charm of a classic home? Presenting with impressive curb appeal, this 1920s three-bedroom residence on a classically scaled allotment of some 1332m2 offers some 211m2 of country-spirited contemporary living in the foothills suburb of Blackwood.
Behind a wonderfully established Golden elm, a striking character façade rises over the glorious landscaped front garden, favourably facing north and making the elevated bungalow-esque verandah the perfect spot for enjoying all-day cuppas and evening aperitifs.
Enter the central hall of the home onto polished timber floors and take in timeless panelling and lofty ceilings. To your right, the spacious living room enjoys more original charm in the form of an original fireplace, now fitted with a slow combustion wood fire.
A large archway guides you through to a fabulous sunroom, ideal for your home office setup, a love seat, or an armchair for peaceful afternoon reading. The third bedroom is accessed via the sunroom, while two larger bedrooms are accessed via the central hallway.
On the front of the home, the first bedroom enjoys multiple sets of windows and an original feature fireplace, while the second functions as a main bedroom, with built-in robes, a large ensuite bathroom complete with bathtub, and French doors to the garden. Meanwhile, the main bathroom/laundry is accessed via the kitchen, and includes a separate toilet.
Central to it all is the dining room, connecting the beautiful living with the galley style kitchen of the rear. Wrapped in windows and offering modern appliances as well as an abundance of cabinetry, enjoy a bright and airy space to fuel entertaining and enjoy home cooking.
Outdoors, there's space for all, from the generous lawn expanding under a shady gum tree, to the level front lawn ideal for ball games or marquees and the exposed aggregate patio. Set under a shade sail and wrapped in manicured garden beds and very private good neighbour fencing, it's made for that Alfresco lifestyle.
