Offered to the market for the first time in 40 years, this wonderful home occupies a 546m2 block in one of Paddington's most desirable streets.
The charming, early 1900's era property has been a much-loved family home and is filled with character. At the centre of the home is a large lounge and living area with a pot-bellied stove to keep you warm on cool winter evenings. There are timber sliders at the rear opening to an L-shaped balcony, which overlooks the sparkling, fully tiled swimming pool. This is a beautiful feature of the home - the sliding doors stack and open the home, creating an ideal indoor/outdoor room, allowing you to enjoy the northerly aspect. Every door opening onto the spacious traditional verandah frames memorable views across Paddington towards the iconic St Brigid's church in the distance.
The kitchen is large and well equipped, with plenty of bench space. Adjoining the kitchen is a contemporary extension, with high raked ceilings and a sun-filled dining area. Sliding doors connect with the side balcony and a paved terrace at the rear, while at the rear of the block is an elevated entertainment pavilion, with built-in bench seating and lighting. This is an enticing and versatile space for gathering with friends.
There are three bedrooms on the upper level and they share the main bathroom. Downstairs there is another bedroom with built-in cupboards, a stylish, modern bathroom and laundry facilities. There is also double secure parking and plenty of space for storage.
The home is situated in a sought after and secluded pocket of Paddington that is elevated and quiet. It is close to all the conveniences you would expect with this inner city address; bus transport, the cafes and shops of Latrobe and Enoggera Terrace and it is just 3km to the CBD.
Don't miss this opportunity to change your address to View Street.
