Exceptional character, modern interior, high ceilings, enormous shed, large solar system – a must see!
A wonderful opportunity to secure a huge residential home on a large allotment so close to the city. Offering the bonus of a two roomed studio with direct street frontage and independent wet area. The studio could be utilised as bedrooms 4 and 5 or separate AirBnB accommodation, shop front or home office.
An iconic property in Oakbank and situated on the ‘main road’ with ideal exposure. Previously the two roomed studio was run as an Antique store, a ‘movie rentals’ shop, then Magnolia of Oakbank (homewares and collectables) and the most recent transformation accommodated an office. Current zoning is residential, the rooms are self-sufficient with disabled toilet, separate hot water service plus inverter split system air-conditioner.
Residential living within the home currently offers a huge family room with three meter ceilings, complete insulation, reverse cycle air-conditioning and a slow combustion fire – this is heart of the home. Technology has been a core factor in the design of this room with a built-in surround sound system together with remote operated, recessed ceiling mounted projector (projector not included) and auto projector screen. All controls are installed within a built in cabinet. From here, internet, sound and video are fed into the master bedroom as well as the lounge. There is also a study alcove the rear of the lounge room.
The formal dining area (or fourth bedroom) with four metre high vaulted ceiling and ceiling windows, opens onto the enviable, spacious kitchen. The expansive kitchen boats a huge island bench, complete with granite tops. Chefs of the family will love the gas cook top and huge electric oven, optimal cupboard space and Bosch dishwasher. And for those nights when no-one feels like cooking – you can pop next door to the pizza bar!
Polished Jarrah floorboards lead to two of the original bedrooms, both of which have gorgeous Victorian grate timber frame fireplace surrounds and both offering ornate glass door built in cupboards.
The second hallway leads to the second bathroom which offers large spa bath with shower and laundry facilities together with a Granite bench top. The toilet is separate. Hot water is provided by a Rinnai gas hot water service with touch pad control for that perfect water temperature.
The Master bedroom, privately tucked away at the rear of the home enjoys a lovely outlook over the back yard. There are huge built in robes and further along, the ensuite bathroom will inspire the early riser with granite top vanity, original in-set window, toilet and shower.
The private back yard offers a paved entertainment area and presents a gorgeous private cottage garden. There is also a 5000 gallon PVC tank, connected to the home with pressure pump and remote monitoring, a 12m x 10m fully lockable shed with concrete floor and power. On the northern side of the shed is an area that could be utilised for further car-parking.
Extras include a 26 panel solar system, offering Dutch panels, connected to a 6.2KW Fronias Inverter with internet monitoring. Each individual panel has 8 zones – therefore partial shading is not an issue due to independent optimisation.
Well located on the main road with an outstanding history, and exceptional character, properties such as this are few and far between.
