THE owners of this Geoffrey Summerhayes-|designed house believe it was built by the engineer that built the Narrows Bridge.
They said rumour had it some of the leftover material from the bridge was used in the building of the home.
Whether it was or not, what the 1964-built home does have are the elegant lines of the era nicely supported by some modern renovations.
Original parquetry flooring is a feature in the light and bright open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area.
The lounge area has a stunning feature gas log fireplace and looks out to the front garden on one side and opens to the alfresco area with built-in benches and the lovely backyard with mature plants and lush lawn on the other.
An extension in 2015 created a north-facing sunroom with built-in seating off the dining/kitchen zone.
The owner said it was her favourite room in winter and overlooked the Wembley Golf Course.
There are three bedrooms. The master is off the entry and has a walk-in robe, built-in robe, ensuite with terrazzo flooring and dressing area.
The two other bedrooms are on the opposite side of the house, near the main bathroom.
The home is on a 930sq m block, and you get to enjoy the wide open spaces of yesteryear in a great location.
“It has easy access to everywhere: the city, coast and amenities such as the golf course and Bold Park aquatic centre with its heated swimming pool,” the owner said.
“It is also close to lots of natural green spaces such as Bold Park.”
