This gorgeous north-facing home on a sunny corner site has the substance that comes with a 1950's icon, with solid timber floors and timeless character. Apart from the utter charm and immaculate presentation of this beauty, the configuration of a substantial two bedroom detached garden annex has practical applications for a home-based business or to accommodate a live-in nanny, extended family or guests. The three bedrooms in the main residence include a serene and private master bedroom with modern ensuite. Classic elegance blends with modern functionality here, with all the interiors finished to perfection. The large, well-heated living rooms, stylish country kitchen served by a butler's pantry and elegant separate dining room are all perfectly suited for entertaining friends and family. These areas flow easily out to the private outdoor decked courtyard, which serves to connect the annex to the residence. Everyone will love the newly installed heated in-ground swimming pool and you'll look forward to enjoying the sound of your happy children's laughter this summer. A separate laundry room, lots of storage and internally accessed double garage addresses the practical considerations and the entire section is fully fenced so kids and pets are safe. You'll be living the good life here when you can share pears, feijoas, persimmons, plums, figs and mandarins all straight from your own fruit trees. The teens can walk to Glendowie College and the young ones to St Heliers Primary School - you're so handy to all the best eastern suburbs amenities and an easy drive to the city for work by car or public transport. Exceptional living in an exceptional location.
