A home of charm, history and tranquillity, in prestigious 'Old Bowral', minutes from the town centre, great investment potential
Wind your way through a magnificent garden of mature specimen trees and hedging to this genuine, circa 1930s, full-brick, treasure of a home, with its sunny, due-north-to-rear aspect, and views all the way to Mt Gibraltar. All the very desirable features of the era remain – the high ceilings, wide cornices, timber floors and original timber doors and windows – and all updating has been undertaken with complete sympathy for its historic origins. From a covered entry porch, a generous foyer opens to the substantial formal dining room with fabulous original open fireplace, flowing to a light-filled family lounge room which leads outdoors through timber French doors to a substantial, undercover, paved alfresco dining area and the garden beyond. From the lounge move through to the generous family meals area and adjoining kitchen with polished timber floors. A fabulous north-facing sunroom has large, timber-framed, sliding glass doors that open to create a double-width doorway, spilling out onto the sun-drenched timber deck that enjoys gorgeous garden vistas. A convenient mudroom, reminiscent of the home's 1930s era, steps down to a small utility courtyard, and also gives convenient alternate access to a storage-rich, renovated laundry and bathrooms. Three bedrooms, two with built-ins and all beautifully timber-floored, lie along the front of the house so that the fabulous garden view is constant and unfettered, and all have easy access to both renovated bathrooms, one with bath and one with a contemporary glass shower. This home offers the 'Rolls Royce' of heating systems, with fully integrated gas hydronic heating throughout, and a flued gas heater in the north-facing sunroom, so winter warmth is assured. The rear garden is fully fenced and will inspire keen gardeners looking for a manageable-sized yard to enjoy. A convenient driveway turn-out from the original single garage creates extra parking or space for reversing. If you love to be surrounded by your own private paradise of glorious signature Highlands established rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas, birch, magnolia, Japanese cherry, liquid amber, dogwood and more, but relish an easy stroll to the cafés and amenities of Bowral town, this is historic beauty for you. This home also has the potential to be sub-divided, creating a spare north-facing block of 700m2 (S.T.C.A) at the rear, providing a fabulous opportunity for a second dwelling.
