Water Street epitomises the elegance and charm of historic Guildford with its majestic tree-lined streetscape and highly sought after and tightly held character homes.
4 Water Street is coming to market for the very first time having been in the same family for generations. This mostly original and unique residence has been lovingly preserved. Its time-honoured classic facade resides in a prized elevated position set well back from the street and nestled within a super-size 1211 sqm block (YES, 1211 SQM!).
An extraordinarily RARE feature with this residence and substantial land size is the front Driveway extends all the way to the Rear Gate with a rear laneway behind which creates some real benefits in design.
This is a typical "Forever Home" for another generation of family to renovate or extend and to love and enjoy. With soft carpets resting lightly on the jarrah boards it is easy to see the vast potential with the existing craftsmanship from a bygone era. The quality double brick and clay tile construction includes extensive displays of jarrah timber architraves together with 3 separate fireplaces, lead-light pane windows, 11' high soaring ceilings, high skirtings and 3 sets of beautiful traditional French doors opening from 3 bedrooms to the western verandah.
Mostly untouched, this traditional home opens to a large entry with free-flowing space offering formal and dining rooms to the right, kitchen and linen press to the rear and 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms to the left.
The kitchen at the rear end of the home is cosy and quaint and enjoys traditional back garden views and is still very much "original" including its wood stove (this is the point from which you may want to extend out and create your own open plan design and outdoor entertaining!).
A large timber frame and weatherboard garage with workshop provides excellent access and egress off the long driveway which spans from the front right through to the rear gate. This driveway from front to rear is unique and rare!
