“A PICTURE PAINTS A THOUSAND WORDS...”
...and mere words are not adequate to describe this enchanting home set in enchanted gardens.
With imagination and foresight, the owner of this circa 1900 weatherboard home saw the potential in this gently sloping block and created an extension that is like no other you will find in Bayswater. The view from the main living area and balcony looks onto a leafy canopy of mature trees, so beautifully inspiring and tranquil you won't want to leave!
In practical terms, the original cottage features a central hallway, from which are accessed a formal lounge with an open fireplace, 2 double bedrooms and the kitchen which has been modernised but still retains its original wood stove!
The extension comprises the aforementioned living and dining area and a magnificent master bedroom which also overlooks the garden. You will feel like you are waking up in a resort in the middle of a forest! Both of these lovely rooms have vaulted ceilings with intricately designed timber and plaster features.
A flight of stairs leads to the lower level where you find the bathroom/laundry; an under stairs storage area (perfect wine cellar) and a den which would make a great home office or study. You will also find on this level, a custom designed wood burning stove which heats the upstairs living area via a connecting chimney.
The garden is a child's paradise complete with a cubby house. There is also a large brick and iron studio/workshop at the bottom of the garden, perfect for the home handyperson or artisan.
We love the originality and quirkiness of this unusual home... we hope you will too!
