A SEAMLESS BLEND OF HISTORIC GRANDEUR & MODERN STYLE
Expression of Interest
‘Leichhardt’ is a classic Victorian home with a very modern twist. Located just minutes from the centre of the city, the property is close to all amenities yet sits in a quiet heritage streetscape. With bus stops and hospital just down the road, the home is ideally situated and offers classic grandeur with the addition of a brand-new, Russell Parsons-built extension.
The solid brick building is positioned on a corner allotment, with a picket fence and neat cottage garden offering a lovely, traditional aspect. The front door sits under a wraparound verandah with timber fretwork and opens into a large and light central hallway. To one side is the first of four bedrooms, this one with incredible timber paneling and great built-in storage. Further down the hallway is a bedroom that could serve as a wonderful guest suite, with its own private lounge, open fireplace, built-in robe, modern ensuite and a view out to a pretty courtyard. A third bedroom is positioned further down the hall, along with a spacious contemporary bathroom that offers an elegant finish in keeping with the original home.
A spacious lounge at the front of the house offers a wine cellar, open fireplace with stunning tile detail, and built-in storage. This room features dual access to the central hallway, French doors out to the verandah and also leads, via a hallway, to the contemporary extension. The stunning new area of the property enjoys a high-end, open plan kitchen and dining space with quality fixtures and fittings, including stone benchtops, soft-close cabinetry and butler’s pantry. Cathedral ceilings and windows flood the space with natural light and glass sliding doors open out to the front deck. This new area of the property also includes a spacious laundry, neatly tucked away off the living space; a huge walk-in linen closet; and a master suite with walk-through his’n’hers robe, and ensuite with walk-in shower and stone benchtops.
The rear garden enjoys plenty of privacy, thanks to a high fence surrounding the central paved courtyard. A verandah runs across the back of the house, providing good undercover space, and established trees soften the garden. Double gates from the side street open to the carport, and the shed has been transformed to a bungalow or workshop with polished concrete flooring, dado boards, insulation, split system heating and cooling, power and lights. This could, however, be easily reconverted to be used as additional vehicle storage if required.
Additional features include:
Ducted evaporative cooling and ducted gas heating
Open fireplaces throughout
Split system heating and cooling in new extension
Newly repainted exterior and new roof on original home
Original features including timber flooring, high pressed metal ceilings, dado boards, decorative cornice, timber mantles, stained glass windows and sash windows
