LOCALLY known as “The Pink House”, this home was built in the early post-war period.
The owners have lived there for 20 years and were attracted to the peaceful leafy street, closeness to the river and the lovely feel of the home with its pretty colonial facade.
While they have renovated and extended the home, it retains beautiful period features such as a wraparound bullnose veranda, leadlight entrance, grand hallway, high ceilings and ornate cornices.
The ground floor includes a formal lounge room with a fireplace, formal dining room, and an open-plan family/dining/|kitchen zone with potbelly stove.
The owners said the family room was a favourite space and had a glorious and relaxing view of the back garden.
French doors open to a vine covered outdoor area where they have enjoyed family celebrations and social gatherings each summer.
Steps lead up to the garden, which is a lush oasis and includes a pool.
The master bedroom is on the ground floor and has walk-in robes and a spa ensuite.
There is a second bedroom that could be used for guests or as a study.
The first floor can be a dedicated children’s zone with a large activity area, two bedrooms with walk-in robes and tree top outlooks, and the main bathroom.
The home is on a 1012sq m corner block that also includes a double garage, workshop and a room that could be a home office, gym, studio or teenagers’ retreat.
