This Art Deco beauty on a considerable allotment of 806m2 (approx.) offers thrilling possibilities for its future in this prestige tree-lined position where transport, elite schooling, parklands and recreation are ever-so convenient, and a rich café and boutique shopping culture is encompassing.
The charming Art Deco architecture is magnificently inspirational, flaunting so many well-maintained period features that await loving restoration throughout an immediately comfortable four bedroom, 2 bathroom layout. A unique façade with curved bay windows and a beautiful terrazzo marble portico invites guests through reeded-glazed French doors into a grand foyer where original timber floorboards and high decorative ceilings introduce the once-exquisite elegance of the home. An expansive central hall segregates living rooms and bedrooms, leading to sheltered alfresco entertaining space overlooking the neat rear gardens and double lock-up garage. The formal lounge enjoys a bright orientation through its arched bay window, equally appropriate for entertaining or family evenings, aside a stone-encased open fireplace. A casual sitting room and formal dining room with built-in buffet precede the spacious kitchen/meals area, fully-appointed and offering copious storage including walk-in pantry.
Clear of any restrictive planning overlays, this fabulous opportunity presents the adventurer with options to construct an opulent new home with exceptional location benefits (subject to council approval).
