This charming 'Villa' was once the original farmstead of the area. It has been extensively upgraded and extended to deliver winter warmth from efficient heating, wonderful outdoor living and a sun-drenched cedar conservatory off the large contemporary kitchen.
The historical home dates to the early 1900s when this sought-after Bethlehem residential area was farmland. It has undergone several iterations over the years to increase its fitness for modern life while respecting its heritage. The cladding is timber weatherboard, the roof long run iron and it has been well maintained and improved by its current owners. Gas generated heat is piped to radiators throughout the home. The fireplace adds ambience.
All the bedrooms open to the veranda wrapping the north and east of the home; living areas face a wide deck on the west side. Both outdoor areas were recently re timbered and whitewashed. Differing ceiling heights add atmosphere to the lower level living areas as do the stairs to a versatile upper floor that can be third lounge or fourth bedroom, has oodles of storage and a sunny office.
The half-acre property spans the access and sports beautiful shady exotics (jacaranda, ginkgo, and ash) and eight varieties of fruit tree, plus, plenty of space for play. Live tucked away in a friendly co-operative community just a few minutes from Bethlehem shops, the CBD, hospital and main routes out of the city. A rare find for lovers of modern light filled comfort in a character environment. Boundary indicative only.
