Back inside, the formal lounge room will undoubtedly become your favourite spot in the house to curl up in front of the gas fire for a movie. This elegant space is inviting and spacious, creating the perfect second living space to escape to when the kids have taken over the living room.
At the end of the day, the four spacious bedrooms ensure everyone will have their own private sanctuary to retire to. You’ll covet the master bedroom with front garden views, stylish modern en suite with walk-in shower, and spacious walk-in robe, while the additional three bedrooms will create fabulous spaces for the kids and are serviced by the sparkling central bathroom with rainfall shower over a full-sized bath. The second bedroom enjoys views of the front garden and a huge built-in robe, while the third and fourth bedrooms are light-filled and spacious, with plenty of room for a free-standing robe or the installation of built-in storage. Bedroom four, at the rear of the house, is perfect for teenagers or guests, with its direct access to the back garden and private position.
The double-glazed windows and hydronic heating throughout ensure this beautiful home is quiet and comfortable year-round, while the stunning timber floorboards, lovingly restored period features, and ample storage combine to create a home that’s both beautiful and functional for family life. With a lock-up garage and off-street parking, and a large laundry, you’ll have everything you need when you make this house your home.
Grab a morning coffee from Common Galaxia, just a 350m stroll from home, and spend a morning exploring Seddon’s cosmopolitan village, with eateries, boutique shopping and the convenience of grocery stores.
