56 and 56a Hazel Avenue
Space for all with a turret on top
Fancy having a big patch of sunshine as the place you call home? That is what is on offer here, with room for the whole family and some! The all-day sun is truly maximised in this three-bedroom plus three utility room, and two-bathroom house; ensured by features such as the sunroom/office off the master bedroom, the huge bay window in the living room, and the long covered verandah that wraps around its front entrance – such a sweet spot in which to rest and read a book or enjoy a coffee or cool drink.
Beneath the Edwardian turret and the roughcast exterior lies a charming character home to suit a large or growing family. Introduce your children to the pleasure of a life framed by resonant, breathing native timbers and the high ceilings of a more spacious era. The period ornamentation inside will set heritage-loving hearts aflutter, from the late Nouveau floral motifs seen in the fire surrounds and the pressed tin ceilings, to an elegant timber architrave and accents of leadlight glass.
Yet this is also a very functional and practical dwelling with two bathrooms and separate toilets. The upstairs bathroom has a bathtub for a nice long soak, as well as a wet area shower for greater accessibility.
In the winter, added warmth comes from the woodburner in the dining room, which will also conveniently dry your clothes on the ceiling-mounted rack above it. Two heatpumps and working open fires pull together to keep the temperature up and a heat transfer system distributes the warm air throughout. There is insulation in the ceiling, under some of the floors, and in the walls of the master and middle bedroom.
The modern kitchen flows sociably into the dining area, and both share massive views straight down Hillside Road to the harbour beyond.
This 270 sq.m. home is set in a quiet cul-de-sac within walking distance to the Caversham shopping centre, not far from the beach life of St Clair, and the CBD is a five-minute drive away.
The current owner has used the downstairs area to give the household budget a lift by taking in boarders.
The property also includes a good-size yard (539 sq.m.)with terracing at the rear, making space for you to bask in some outdoor living.
Bring the family!
Deadline sale 7/02/18, 4pm (prior offer considered).
