A property of singular style, this two level Federation Arts and Crafts home, built in 1905, displays exquisite original features. Now offered for the first time in 20 years, Merlin, a wonderful north-facing period home, is looking for some cosmetic touches to bring it into the modern era. From the moment you step inside, this grand old dame casts her spell on you. Soaring 3.6m high ceilings, ornate cornices, period tiling, stained glass windows, regal curtaining and original fireplaces reflect the period appeal of this graceful home. The entry hall with its grand staircase and original turned handrail, gives you a real sense of proportion to the home. Positioned in a blue-ribbon family setting on a deep dual access block it offers both formal and informal living areas, excellent accommodation and huge potential to add value. The huge formal rooms stand out for their grandness and offer plenty of room for entertaining family and friends. The elegant lounge and spacious dining room feature two original fireplaces and the rooms can be separated or left as one with the use of the attractive dividing doors . Picture rails and high ceilings make these rooms a marvellous centrepiece to the home. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs and the massive Master suite with fireplace and ensuite, offers plenty of space to include an additional study area if required. The second king sized bedroom with its original fireplace, flows onto a north-facing decked balcony and is bathed in sunshine. All bedrooms are generously proportioned. Kitchen and bathrooms are spacious and comfortable as they are, but with a touch of magic could easily be transformed for modern-day living. At the rear of the property the family room flows seamlessly through French doors to a large, elevated and tiled, wrap- around veranda perfect for BBQs and year-round entertaining. The rear lane offers access for secured covered parking for two cars. There is also plenty of storage under and throughout the home plus additional storage in the attic. The home is warm and toasty in winter with gas ducted heating. Located in a highly sought after quiet and picturesque street, within easy walking distance to Mosmans exclusive shopping village, renowned schools, foreshore parkland, ferry wharf and city buses. Magical as is, or bring your designer/architect and let your creative juices flow. The opportunities are endless to transform this graceful period home into a stunning masterpiece.
