For Sale

A “One And Only” Period Home

One of the first houses of Bittern (circa 1920), this rustic charmer has had its features changed and layered over the decades by previous owners. The result today blends together into a unique, yet comfortable and practical home. High ceilings, ornate cornices, ceiling roses, stained glass and a myriad of period features still run throughout. The original cottage has had a major extension (c.1960) to add a huge lounge room with a magnificent open fireplace and feature brick wall, plus an additional two bedrooms with BIR. She also has:two original large double bedrooms (main with WIR); two newly renovated bathrooms (main with double shower and marble topped double vanity plus WC, the second with bath, shower and separate WC across a mud room); a parlour with an open fireplace; a reception area with wood burning heater; a hand crafted black wood kitchen with new quality S/S appliances (including dishwasher and plumbed double door refrigerator), and an adjoining dining area. GDH and three modern reverse cycle air conditioners control the ambient temperature, ably assisted by double brick construction and full length verandahs front and back. A new fully lined and powered 22 sq m attic provides ample storage or a play area for the kids. Set on a big 1,745 sq m block (approx), the gardens have established trees as only time provides, including a magnificent oak out back. There is a quaint 1920’s volcanic rock gazebo in the pleasant front garden. The backyard is divided into purpose areas, including a large brick BBQ with fireplace and chimney and a paved entertaining area. There is also a powered brick outbuilding which could be converted to many uses, plus a new and unusual garden shed. The rear of the property could easily accommodate a granny flat or barn size workshop, or set to work as a fruitful vegetable garden. Close to shops, transport and schools, many other features abound, such as aluminium mesh leaf proof gutter guard, a brick single carport and spaces for three other cars. This very different home would suit a large growing family, a retreat for the executive looking for a base for all the Peninsula has to offer, or even be used as a B&B.Priced to sell, this unusual property is ripe and ready for the next owners to simply enjoy the labours of previous generations, or to stamp their own new layer of personality.
