For the first time in half-a-century we open the doors to a wondrous and original ‘California Bungalow’ that sits on a mammoth 618m2 allotment in the cultural and culinary heart of family centric Pascoe Vale South. An archetype that has endured the test of time and remains highly sought today with buyers retaining their decorative motifs that exude the rich character of a bygone era, whilst adding modern extensions.
From the outside, a picture perfect vision of the suburban forever home. Featuring the iconic white weatherboard, deep front porch with brick pillars, statement patterned glass double front doors with rich timberwork and its terracotta roof with balanced slopes.
Once inside, you can immediately see that this home was lovingly maintained by the same Italian family since 1968. Interiors radiate warmth, capturing the epitome of harmonious family living and walking through feels as though you have transported through time.
The elegant wide entrance hallway reveals a soaring ceiling featuring ornate cornices and decedent timber architraves and skirtings.
Flowing on from the hallway to one side is a devoted sanctuary with a palpable mood of tranquillity. Here reside 3 generous bedrooms with decorative cornices, (two with built in robes) and the Master with three large windows (two are double-hung) that enjoy garden vistas. There is an immaculate central bathroom with plenty of cupboard space, shower, toilet and tiled throughout.
To the left of the entry is a spacious formal lounge with three large windows (two double-hung) that perfectly frame the front porch and garden. True period presence is on display with an ornate ceiling rosette, antique light fitting and brick fireplace with gas heating.
Continue on through to the living, entertainment, meals and kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas cooking and ample cupboard and bench space for cooking with ease – and retro black, white and pink vinyl flooring.
The rear of the property is West-facing, and beyond an intricate lead-light feature glass door is the sunroom with the black and white diamond vinyl flooring, guaranteed to be warm and bright every afternoon all year round- also featuring laundry and a second separate toilet.
The enormous but low maintenance rear garden is the entertainers dream. A lush flowing green lawn with an established lemon tree and a retro pebbled fixed BBQ. For those who take pleasure in the joys of growing their own organic produce, enjoy the large designated veggie patch area. There is also a lockable garage – with ample storage space.
Added features include:
• Gas ducted heating and evaporative cooling throughout,
• Side drive to garage (fit 4+cars)
• screen doors at entrance (perfect for letting in the warm breeze in the summer)
• Located within the Strathmore Secondary College School zone
• 4 quality primary schools nearby + Turner St Kindergarten 1 minute drive
