DREAMS DO COME TRUE
Finding a large, character-filled family home on the edge of the city and a short stroll to Girton Grammar might seem like the impossible dream but this property ticks all those boxes.
The charming weatherboard home, circa 1900, is loaded with space and style while retaining several original features.
Nestled into the quiet street, it features a leafy front garden with brick paved paths leading to the timber fretwork-trimmed front verandah. Inside, it has the the traditional central hallway with high ceilings, midway arch and polished Baltic pine floors.
Two bathrooms and four big bedrooms open off the hallway, three include built in robes and two have open fireplaces with surrounding timber mantelpieces.
Huge open-style living, dining and kitchen areas occupy the rear corner of the home where the expansive living room features an open fireplace with timber surround, mantelpiece and glass-fronted firebox adding a cosy glow on winter days.
Overlooking the front garden, the dining area can easily accommodate a table for six or sixteen while the solid timber kitchen cabinetry matches the original era but fills today's modern needs with stainless steel dual/fuel cooker, dishwasher, large walk-in pantry/store room and French doors to a rear alfresco deck overlooking the big backyard.
Outdoor spaces include crazy stone paving to the shade pavilion and surrounding the in ground pool and a 6m x 6m multi-purpose room/shed ideal for use as a games/music room/studio/gym or workshop.
Added extras include ducted heating/cooling, under-house garage/workshop and wine cellar, two rainwater tanks and ample off-street parking.
The large block approx 1149m² is a rare find so close to the city, View Street Arts precinct, schools and both hospitals.
Add your personal touch to this early Bendigo residence and watch those dreams come true.
