Built in the Edwardian period, Bangalow (original name) is one of the oldest homes in prestigious Holt Avenue and, whilst retaining the charm and character of the era, has been carefully and sympathetically converted into 4 highly desirable apartments.
This unique ground floor apartment with a North/ North-West aspect is a magical reminder of an enchanting era. Steeped in history, quite exquisite and beautifully presented, it has a light and spacious feel - perfect for downsizers, executives or young families.
Set back from the street the home sits in a tranquil and yet central location. With its’ own private entrance along with a kitchen door to the garden at the rear, you can be forgiven for thinking this is more like a semi than an apartment. Brimming with the charm of yesteryear, this is certainly a one-of-a- kind treasure.
Steeped in history, the home offers many original features including highly polished timber floors, high ornate pressed ceilings and picture rails, captivating stained- glass windows with floor to ceiling drapes, two spacious bedrooms and a car space on title. Having received an update over the years, a wonderful modern twist has been added to this elegant dame.
A large eat-in Caesarstone gas kitchen with a mosaic glass tiled splashback is a winner. Complete with Ilve gas stove, Bosch dishwasher and ample storage, it offers plenty of room for keen cooks.
The spacious lounge enjoys a highly patterned ceiling with chandelier, polished timber floors, stunning ornamental automatic gas fireplace and a pleasant view to the side path garden beds with their pleasant mix of colour and foliage.
The Master bedroom has a bank of built in robes, original fireplace, polished floorboards and high patterned ceilings with an original chandelier light fitting. In fact there are plenty of cupboards and storage throughout the home. A series of built-in cupboards in the hallway would make a perfect European laundry if you prefer not to share the external laundry. The communal laundry has been revamped and there is a separate storage area for the apartment.
The second bedroom is generous in size with high ceilings, curtains and original floorboards. The neat and tidy black and white bathroom comes complete with a full-sized bath and shower over.
The welcoming front veranda with its picturesque tessellated tiles, is both peaceful and private and a great place in which to curl up and read a good book, and for all the pet owners, this boutique block is pet friendly subject to approval from the committee. Externally the building has received an update with new paintwork and repairs undertaken this year.
A North facing lush and very private picturesque communal garden at the rear is an added bonus offering plenty of room in which to relax. It comes complete with a communal washing line.
Convenience is key with this property. Sitting in a whisper- quiet tree-lined street within easy level walking distance of both Cremorne and Neutral Bay junctions and only a moments level walk to day to day shops, Orpheum Theatre, eateries, CBD bus and local schools. SCEGGS Redlands school is a mere 200 metres away. Take in a movie at the cinema or explore scenic harbour- side walking trails, plus of course you are only moments away to Balmoral Beach. With the car space on title, you can leave the car at home and commute easily to work via public transport at your door.
Distinctly unique, this single level ground floor apartment of grand proportions is a residence of exceeding charm and offers an enviable lifestyle in a highly sought- after location.
