“Tullymore” circa 1915 is a wonderful example of bygone architecture that positioned conveniently to shops, cafes, supermarkets & handy to Wellingtons new Aquatic Centre.
As a historic preface this lovely home was one of three built for his sons by Mr Kimbell and boasts original crafted timber fret work, decorative plaster ceilings and original light fittings all playing their part in its character and authenticity.
There is a wonderful front verandah that faces (does not overlook) the Bell River and from here you enter the home via its long hallway with picture rails and lovely timber features.
A big plus with these classic gems is the way contemporary enhancements blend perfectly with the build period which is evident in the way the handcrafted Tasmanian Oak kitchen fits right at home in this classic build.
Throughout the home are the trademark high ceilings and each of its bedrooms could accommodate a Queen to King size bed.
The enclosed verandah is currently being utilsed as a fourth bedroom.
Its bathroom is set off the hallway through an alcove with a linen press and has a deep bath for soaking with an overhead shower while two other showers can be found in different sections of the property, one being in the wash house.
The lounge room will bring the family together with the open fire place & this is where you can step out onto the front verandah or back into the dining room if required.
In the back section of the house you’ll find the sitting room that captures the glorious morning sun through the bay window. Nearby is the step-down den, believed to be the original cellar and is now functioning as an office/Study.
Value adding the desirability of “Tullymore” is the freestanding structure that is designed to work as an office/student/in law retreat with its large storage room, bathroom and split system air-conditioner.
The allotment is 1081 square metres in area with beautiful roses, established gardens, lawns & double Colourbond garage with electric roller doors. The original stables (now extra storage) & wash house are also still in place.
This stand out example from a bygone architectural era is definitely for lovers of quality period homes. For further information please call Gary Francis on 0428 459 830.
