Period elegance within a leafy sanctuary
This charming property in the heart of Kennington's home-sweet-homes represents one of the more sympathetic updates of a 50's cottage to modern living that you will see.
Beautifully maintained and updated in all the right areas, it retains all the most coveted features of its era. Consider high ceilings, picture rails, polished floorboards and decorative cornice. The original footprint is also intact, which further adds to the integrity.
The picture-perfect façade includes a lovely garden and an elevate front porch from which to enjoy it. From here, step into a welcoming entrance hall and those warm honey-toned floors which flow throughout the home.
There are three bedrooms and a study here. The main has a full wall of mirrored robes and ceiling fans. The rear study is as cute as they come, with a raked plywood ceiling and backyard views.
The vendors have decorated the central loungeroom with books, adding to the cosy atmosphere within. This room also features its original brick hearth, with a gas heater nestled within.
The sunny kitchen/dining room is a beauty. Heritage lovers will appreciate the exquisite vintage touches here, such as the curved overhead cabinets and slow combustion stove within a blue-tiled alcove. Contemporary additions include a stainless-steel under-bench oven, gas cooktop and dishwasher, as well as a pantry cupboard, pot drawers and timber benchtop, framed by butter yellow tiles.
The bathroom also gives a generous nod to the past while catering for contemporary life. It has black-and-white checkerboard tiles, a vintage pedestal vanity and mirror, plus a shower and separate bath. The loo is off the laundry.
Another notable feature are the new aluminum windows throughout, which are in keeping with the home's style.
Outside, a single carport fronts a garage/workshop with concrete floor and power, while a private back garden provides a lush and shady sanctuary from the world beyond.
Close to La Trobe University, Bendigo South East Secondary College and the shopping precincts of Kennington are further reasons to quickly view this gorgeous new listing.
