For those with a love of character homes this 'turn of the century villa' will be hard to resist, its many charms somewhat bewitching and certainly ensuring a never-ending appeal. Located within the heart of this vibrant and popular community the 1,011sqm property underpins the value whilst providing that sought after family lifestyle with plenty of room for children, pets and outdoor entertaining. Living spaces are generous and flow from the central, open-plan kitchen and sitting area. This space offers an easy flow to the deck and overlooks the established gardens, a water feature and the swimming pool. This main outdoor area is sheltered from the easterly, a spectacular Indian Nut tree planted in 1904, around the time the house was built, offers shade in Summer. A second living area makes an ideal media room or library with an office tucked away behind bi-folding doors enabling this 'work zone' to be concealed if desired. The formal lounge with dining is an expansive, elegant room with a Jetmaster Fire and French doors to the west. An impressive hallway with a high stud leads to the four bedrooms, the main with a north-facing aspect, WIR and en-suite plus access to the verandah. A separate WC adjacent to the modern family bathroom is a practical convenience for guests. Double-glazed, well insulated and with a 15KW ducted heat pump system, under-tile heating in both bathrooms plus the kitchen cements the highly valued combination of original 1900's detailing and contemporary requirements. Fresh, neutral decor and new carpet throughout the home complemented by tastefully selected window dressings and light fittings completes the extensive list of renovations. Two-three car garaging provides ample storage along with internal access and further off-street parking is secure behind the automated gate. This location is close to Merivale Mall, the Elmwood Shops, Northlands Mall plus many local amenities and a few minute's walk to St Andrews School.
