‘Tregena’; the farmhouse in Clarence Gardens with a beautiful reboot to match its rich history…
Best Offers By – Monday August 26 at 12pm.
A story that started way back in 1867 enters the most exciting chapter of its 4 bedroom life on the back of a top-to-toe transformation worthy of its old-world charm and sheer freedom on a block just shy of the magic 1000sqm mark.
What was one of the first homes to be built in these parts, this symmetrical stone-fronted farmhouse – with nine main rooms, additional guest wing/home theatre and shedding for a serious car-collector – is today a treasured mark on Clarence Gardens’ timeline.
And time has been so good to ‘Tregena’; a solid and solar-powered home headlined by its original timber floors, dizzyingly high 3.8m ceilings, ornate decorations, leadlight, and fireplaces amongst grand, light-filled spaces.
The home was built over three phases – working its way towards the street, from humble cottage to what now offers a far-reaching hall, two huge living zones and expansive king size bedrooms – including a master with access to a two-way en-suite.
With stone benchtops, 900mm oven/gas cooktop, integrated storage high and low, elongated island/breakfast bar, and handle-less doors, the kitchen adds a classy, minimalist vibe to that old-world charm.
Speaking of the world, we love the drawn-style map of Paris on the wall of the adjacent casual meals zone – the conduit between the central lounge room and an alfresco pavilion with heat pads and awnings/cafe blinds that retract at the push of a button.
Just as the pavilion essentially adds another room to proceedings, that retreat. – with bedroom and large projector screen adds another layer of versatility to a home with a six-car garage, room for a pool, and prized peace on a street with an enviable dead end. The story continues…
