‘Ellesmere’ – A Beautifully Restored Heritage Gem
Built in 1900, this stunning Edwardian home is filled with warmth and charm. Currently serving as popular boutique accommodation, this beautiful property offers a floorplan that allows flexible family living should the buyer not want to take on the existing business.
Tucked away behind a picket fence and through a lovely cottage garden, the charming home features a return verandah that offers the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by. The faithfully restored property includes incredible original detail including 12-foot timber lined ceilings, decorative cornice, archs and corbels, timber flooring, generous proportions, working fireplaces, detailed glass windows and more.
Three large bedrooms can be found off the main hallway, all with decorative ceilings and lovely features alongside practical elements such as brick fireplaces, ceiling fans and ample storage. The front section off the home also includes a small hallway leading to a linen closet and spacious family bathroom that features a freestanding clawfoot bathtub and timber vanity – perfectly in keeping with the style of the home.
At the end of the hall is a large kitchen and dining room and doorways leading from both the hall and the kitchen to a lounge and formal dining area. The attractive lounge enjoys pretty stainglass windows and a door from the return verandah, as well as French doors opening out to the rear deck let in plenty of natural light. The classic country-style kitchen is perfectly timeless and from this room is a large laundry, which features a door to the side of the house and a separate toilet and shower room.
Outside, steps down from the back deck take you to a sunny paved courtyard and a low-maintenance garden. At the end of the garden is a great little studio space – absolutely ideal for a home office or art studio. A driveway off the side street offers secure access to the single carport at the rear of the block.
