Red brick Quarry Hill charmer!
This beautifully presented late 1940’s red clinker brick home is ideally positioned on an easy-care corner block in an elevated and highly sought-after Quarry Hill location within walking distance of central Bendigo’s thriving arts and café culture. The three-bedroom home with off street parking for up to two vehicles is a showcase of original art deco period detailing including elegant ceiling roses, cornicing, mantles, picture rails, triple sash windows, internal glass and timber doors and polished Ash floorboards throughout.
Tucked behind a low red brick front fence and square set porch typical of the art deco style, the timber and frosted glass panel front door opens directly into the formal lounge with ornate mantle and dining room beyond. The dining room includes the original open fire place and external brick chimney breast that has been retro-fitted with a Rinnai gas heater for year-round comfort and convenience.
The L shaped central hallway leads to the property’s three bedrooms and crisp white tiled bathroom with art deco pedestal hand basin, black tile detailing and combined shower and bath. Two of the three bedrooms include ceiling fans and are double in size; with built in robes and triple sash windows in all. The separate highly functional kitchen includes a single wall of original floor to ceiling cabinetry, glass display cabinets, solid timber benchtops and double sink as well as an upright 4 burner gas cooker and custom-built storage cleverly fitted into the original tiled chimney breast.
The compact laundry includes a separate toilet and access to the covered shady alfresco with built in seating and privacy screen. Lawns, a magnificent towering single palm tree, garden shed, low maintenance rear garden and additional single gate side access complete this beautifully maintained property.
