“One of Mitcham's great properties”
Very rarely a property comes a long that is not only a home for a family but pulls at something inside. Like a page in a book describing the ideal life or a scene at the start of a movie where everything is beautiful and still.
Like the neighbours on the street or passers by walking to the park, you will find yourself stopping, staring and breathing in 5 Neweys Road, Mitcham.
How could you not? Set on the high side of the road, with a staggering 34.65m frontage, perfectly manicured lawns and classical white picket fence, this is one of the prettiest properties you will ever see.
Originally a blue stone fronted cottage that has been lovingly extended and renovated over the course of many years.
This property is equal parts style and substance, with features you will not see anywhere else.
Stepping past the white picket fence that features an automatic sliding gate, there are two paths into the home. Walking up the driveway past rows of ornamental pear trees you arrive at the stunning alfresco area. Enormous with almost 50sqm of space to entertain, it is a sight to behold. An outdoors kitchen features rotisserie bbq, fridge, storage space and stone benchtops, the alfresco area is finished with polished exposed aggregate concrete and Mt Gambier stone.
Full length windows and bi fold doors lead inside to the open plan kitchen, living and dining area. Immediately you will notice the almost 2m island bench with a solid jarrah benchtop, ample cabinetry, quality appliances and black granite benchtops. This area is oozing with natural light, windows have been cleverly added in every corner.
The living portion of the space has a new 75 inch Samsung TV sitting flush in the wall, while a new gas fireplace sits just below.
A butlers pantry sits behind a clever sliding door and has a sink and even more cabinetry and storage options.
Down the hallway sits the master bedroom that features bi fold doors and a stunning outlook to an outside courtyard space. The master ensuite may just be the biggest one you've ever seen. With high quality tiles, open shower, two vanities, two mirrors, toilet, heated floors and full length built in robe, this ensuite is so generous it gives you multiple options on how to finish it off.
The second upstairs bedroom is a good size and also features its own massive ensuite with shower, vanity, heated floors and toilet. This bedroom also has a walk in robe.
Completing the upstairs portion of the house is the laundry with included washer and dryer, stone benchtops, cabinetry and storage space plus a third upstairs toilet and outside access.
The stairs, railing and balustrade are custom designed and stunning. The extra wide stairs are finished with jarrah steps. Heading down to the original portion of this 1893 cottage you will be left with mouth agape. Brand new polished pine floors are found throughout, however it is how the 140 year old kitchen area has been converted that will leave you smiling. Original exposed brick and stone has been maintained and a space has been left open that now houses indoors plants, creating a warm and unique feel. The original inlet that was used for an oven a millennia ago has been maintained accentuating the character of the home. The downstairs living area features the original working fireplace and ample space to live and entertain.
The two downstairs bedrooms are light filled, with high quality carpets, blinds and a fireplace in one bedroom plus outside access in the other.
The downstairs bathroom is so unique that all comers will marvel at it. Behind a sliding barn door you will find exposed brick walls, stunning terrazzo floors, a sunken bath and open shower with glass splash back plus a fourth toilet.
Heading to the front of the property you will find the extra long porch finished in heritage red. Rows of white roses lead down the path to the street, while manicured lawns provide room to run and play.
A solid stone shed/studio provides flexible storage options or a retreat to work in peace. Attached to it is a second outdoor entertaining area, the perfect place to drink a coffee and watch the world go by.
Heading upstairs to the side of the home you will find the private courtyard, also reachable via the main bedroom. Retained garden beds with plants serviced by an automatic sprinkler system created a ring around the side and rear of the property.
