If Only Houses Could Talk…
This home would sing the praises of its’ owners. Lovingly renovated and recreated throughout, this stunning two bedroom apartment captures all of the charm of an authentic Edwardian masterpiece.
Built in 1908, Bangalow (original name) is the oldest home in prestigious Holt Avenue and many decades ago was carefully and sympathetically converted into 4 highly desirable apartments. Set back from the street the house sits in a tranquil and yet central location. Externally the building has received an update with new paintwork and repairs undertaken this year.
As soon as you arrive at this property, you know you are in for a delight. Walking through the vestibule to the apartment, you are drawn to the stain glass windows, hallway arches and all the features one would associate with a home of this era. Fastidiously renovated, the period features are in immaculate condition, embracing the age of the property and sympathetically restored. With level street access, this ground floor apartment of grandiose proportions will ‘wow’ you with its’ charm and character.
Relax in the lounge with its stunning arched window, beautiful high patterned ceilings with chandelier, original fireplace, highly polished timber floors and neutral colour palette. A spacious area offering plenty of room for dining and entertaining family and friends.
The ultra-modern open plan eat-in kitchen with its black tiled splashback, stone bench tops and soft close drawers is great for cosy chats whilst creating the family meals, and flows seamlessly to an al fresco entertaining area and communal lawn and gardens. The North facing lush and very private picturesque garden is an added bonus. Ideal for the children to run around and play all day allowing mum and dad to relax or prepare the meals whilst keeping a watchful eye. Fully landscaped and fenced to keep the children or pets safe and secure. Yes, your furry friends are welcomed here subject to committee approval.
The King-sized bedrooms once again mirror the Edwardian features with their high patterned ceilings and chandeliers, sash windows and high skirting boards. The master has exposed polished timber floorboards and is fitted with a bank of wardrobes.
The black and white fully tiled bathroom is simply stunning and complements the age of the property. Cleverly designed with a black vanity, full-sized bath and black tapware, it also is a nod to the contemporary.
The apartment also enjoys the benefit of having its’ own separate laundry room complete with storage, an additional large store room plus an al fresco entertaining area – all under exclusive use.
