City-sider style in a renovated 1930s villa pulling out all the stops
More than a renovation, it’s a way of life; rewired, replumbed and reroofed, this 1930 villa’s new chapter is written for the professional couple or fashionable city-sider, in the neck of the woods known for its split-second dashes to the city-to-bay tram, train or bus.
Inside, its 2016/17 renovation retains the charm of intricate 3.2m (approx.) ceilings, hallway fretwork, original timber floors and 3 working fireplaces up front, before switching up its daylight blessed back end in the vivid white appeal of a contemporary kitchen and bathroom.
Subtle subway tiles, Smeg electric oven, gas cooktop and a semi-integrated dishwasher feature under the glow of LED and pendant lights, including a Euro style laundry beneath its Quartz-look benchtops. Hidden from sight is your 15m2 storage room accessed via an integrated attic ladder above the kitchen.
Whether dinner’s quick at the breakfast bar or a sit-down 4-pax affair in the meals zone, consider the alfresco patio through glass doors for when friends pop in.
The north facing timber deck catches the sun, enjoys a landscaped outlook and a valuable off-street carport via a shared laneway, perfect for backyard family cricket.
Or, in its central living zone scaled to entertain, keep your closest comfortable beside the home’s third fireplace or the breeze of split system air conditioning.
Decorative floor tile flair and legroom feature in the bathroom given a frameless shower with rain and hand-held fittings, floating vanity, and a bath for toddler potential; and no one is short-changed in either bedroom with wardrobes, ceiling fans, fireplaces, day/night shades and subdued, on-trend tones.
For the energy conscience, there is the added benefit of roof insultation, and double glazed feature windows in the heritage styled section of the house which provides temperature control and sound insulation, all backed up with a 2.95kW solar system.
In a location smack bang in lifestyle heaven; grab a Dear Daisy coffee hit on foot before hailing your transport of choice, plan a weeknight wander to Goodwood Road’s cinema and cuisine strip, or a boutique bender along King William Road.
