*** Sold - Inspection For Saturday 24th Canceled. Apologies For Inconvenience *** Private Sanctuary That Exudes Character!
Every so often, you come across a home that has been so lovingly maintained and styled with such restraint that is not only true to its original form, but exudes warmth and character in a way that makes it a 'must have.'
Behind the picket-fenced feature walls and gate of 1/49 Birdwood Avenue lies a very private courtyard and a well-coiffed, majestic tree at its core. Picture the lush green lawn, a solid teak bench and a light afternoon breeze that beckons your enjoyment.
As you enter the street-front, single level residence you'll feel a welcoming sense of warmth and cosiness. High ceilings anchored by a sea of solid timber floorboards permeates the home, extending from the entry foyer into the formal living and dining rooms. An original wood fireplace translates to cosy winter gatherings around a crackling fire. Together with ornate ceiling roses, cornices and hints of 'classic Deco' that feature throughout the home, there's a classically styled kitchen that even Julia Child would adore.
The two over-sized main bedrooms with built in robes ensure plenty of storage. A third, spacious bedroom/study provides great versatility. Two complete bathrooms (one with a spa for hydrotherapy) means everyone can take their time getting ready during rush hour.
At the heart of the home sits a very private den, ideal as a wine cellar/tasting room. The more casual living area at the rear of the home is expansive and can be curated to suit large parties or sectionalised for more intimate gatherings.
Enjoy the convenience of having local shops, the post office, your local IGA and local primary and secondary schools close by, all within walking distance.
Additional features include: - Security window grilles and sliding doors - Split system refrigerated air conditioning - Double lock up garage
