Enchanting Home with Future Potential
Situated on one of the quietest and most private streets in the sought-after suburb of Paddington, this enchanting home offers the perfect blend of both period charm and modern convenience – you will need to act fast to secure this gem.
Perfectly situated on a 455m2 allotment, the front entrance showcases easy care landscaped gardens and an alluring street presence, while a traditional front veranda, perfect for a morning cuppa or afternoon drink, welcomes you home. Once through the front door, the central hallway draws your attention to the heart of the home, boasting a free-flowing floor plan to easily cater for 21st century living. Adored period details feature throughout including beautifully polished timber floors, VJ walls, and high ceilings and is the perfect opportunity for a buyer who is looking to marry traditional charm with stylish modern living.
The immaculate kitchen boasts excellent functionality and is complete with ample cabinetry, quality appliances, and effortlessly services the adjacent dining zone. This practical floorplan also offers the potential to update and open the kitchen, living and dining rooms to create an open-plan layout.
Accommodation comprises two large bedrooms of equal size, each with a built-in robe and French doors to the veranda, offering spectacular views over the Paddington hills and to Mount Coot-tha in the distance. The veranda faces north, allowing you to make the most of the winter sun in the colder months and stay cool in the summer.
The beautiful and private garden is very established, containing a mix of native and exotic flora including mature pandanus trees, stag horns, and elkhorns. Whether you’re looking for some peace and quiet or the perfect spot to entertain friends, you’ll love its tranquillity. The large lawn is equally perfect for a cocktail party with friends or a game of footy with the kids.
The roof, pristine hardwood battens, and concrete piers are all immaculately maintained, and the entire property has been recently repainted inside and out. Windowsills, weatherboards, and eaves are also in incredible condition, as are interior elements from the VJs to the floorboards. The ceiling is insulated to the highest level, ensuring a beautifully cool home in summer and a warm, cosy space in winter. Positioned on a flat block, the property would only require minor excavation or small lift should you wish to build a downstairs extension.

• Air-conditioning and fans in both bedrooms
• Generously sized bathroom with corner spa bath
• Beautiful original stained-glass windows and breezeways
• Spacious walk-in storage and separate laundry room

A visit is highly recommended.
