This 1920's two level bungalow is in a beautiful setting down a shared driveway at the end of a quiet cul de sac. The home directly overlooks Derby Downs Reserve and from the second level master bedroom, there are great views from the covered Juliet balcony over the Ellerslie Racecourse.
These grand old homes (this one built in 1926 and was the original racecourse Track Manager's home) are synonymous for large rooms and high ceilings infused with that lovely bungalow charm. The formal and the informal lounges interconnect and are beautiful spaces to relax and entertain. The kitchen is near the back of the home with the dining room just off the kitchen. French doors open out from the dining room to the low maintenance west facing deck, patio and lawn with views to the park.
The floor plan is very versatile and has gas central heating throughout the lower level where there are three double bedrooms serviced by the family bathroom, while upstairs is the expansive master with its own walk in wardrobe, Juliet balcony, and ensuite plus access to the vast attic storage area.
This fabulous pocket of Ellerslie has always been popular and it is easy to see why with access to Ellerslie's thriving village packed with shops, cafes and bars and the train station within a 5 minute walk. When you need a car there is easy motorway access and back at the house is a single garage plus off street parking. For children well regarded schools Ellerslie School, One Tree Hill College and Michael Park School are also close by.
If you like the sound of owning a family home with the bonus of Derby Downs Reserve just over the stone wall, plus an opportunity to infuse your own taste and flair into a renovation if desired, then come and view!
