The gorgeous family abode will delight with its charming period features but will surprise with the thoughtful, contemporary renovation that has given the home a new lease on life.

The owner has cleverly transformed the house over time since he bought it 14 years ago, completing the extension in the middle of last year.

“We basically changed it from a small three-bedroom place to what it is now,” he said.

“There was only a small kitchen previously and the layout was very awkward so we expanded the house toward the back.

“We kept the high ceilings, put in the alfresco area and now we have massive windows and bi-folds where the living area is to capture the city views.”

Complementing solid timber floors, high ornate ceilings, dado rails and white plantation shutters, the home now features sleek, modern additions.

The lovely four-bedroom, two-bathroom house now has a striking open-plan main living area, centred on the kitchen with stone benchtops, quality European appliances, plenty of work and storage space and fantastic indoor/outdoor servery windows.

The lounge and dining overlook the lush rear gardens, where the alfresco entertaining area and pool with water feature create a resort-style ambience.

All bedrooms are generously sized.
