THIS beautifully renovated and extended period home puts everything Geelong West has to offer at your fingertips.
The house at 31 Waratah Street is opulent yet comfortable, and the sought-after location, in a tree-lined street, puts you within walking distance to Pakington Street, Shannon Avenue, Pakington Strand shopping centre, public transport and loads of schools.
But, the appeal of this weatherboard home, listed with price hopes of $1.95 million to $2.15 million, goes far deeper, thanks to its mix of character features and modern open-plan living.
Whitford, Newtown agent John Moran reckons it’s one of the most impressive houses in postcode 3218.
“The renovation was completed about four months ago,” Mr Moran said.
“No expense has been spared, it’s had a full rebuild, and everything has been done.
“The quality and design of the home is incredible.”
From the street, the Victorian-era house proudly displays its heritage.
It’s a similar story in the front section of the house where there are polished floorboards, high ceilings and three bedrooms off the central hallway.
The period-style formal lounge is here, too, and further on, the incredible kitchen, dining and living zone with open fireplace at the rear.
Here, families will find plenty of breathing space.
And, all culinary needs are covered off.
The white cabinetry in the kitchen offers ample pot drawers and is teamed with a sleek feature tiled splashback and white tapware.
“The state-of-the-art kitchen is a place of high functionally and top class design,” Mr Moran said.
Other tasteful perks include an integrated Liebherr fridge and freezer, Miele appliances and imported terrazzo stone benchtops.
Whipping up a meal outside can also be on the menu with a built-in brick pizza oven in the outdoor entertainment zone.
It’s luxury all the way upstairs (parents, read on) – the main bedroom offers a large walk-in wardrobe, an ensuite with bath to lie back and soak the day away, and a retreat area space to work or put the feet up.
The main bathroom is also eye-catching with two vanities, a hidden shower and basalt tiles.
In another luxurious touch, the tootsies have been thought of, with underfloor heating in all bathrooms.
Speaking of temperature, the inside climate will be just right throughout the year and on both levels, with hydronic heating throughout and three-phase zoned airconditioning downstairs, ducted heating and airconditioning to the main bedroom.
Outside, there’s a lovely grassed garden area framed by ornamental pear trees.
Passionate plantspeople could add their own touches to this green space or just enjoy the simplicity of the area and it’s northerly aspect.
As for the vehicles, the single garage is accessed from the rear lane and the single carport via Waratah Street.
