Brimming With Memories And Treasures

After 50 years, this much-loved family character villa is ready for its next chapter. The family who created their red home up a rustic brick pathway, and where white and wine-coloured roses tumble around the house and daisies and geraniums frame the door, they say, they feel it's time to pass on their treasure trove. It fits perfectly for a family with its generous four bedrooms, or three bedrooms plus study, two bathrooms, and a spacious living room with very lovely views from the picture window over-looking the Botanical Gardens, the harbour and Somes Island. These views are carried out to the balcony, which is a lovely spot for breakfast with the sun melting your buttered toast with a freshly brewed coffee, and with the birds singing in the background. This harmony is carried through to the farm house style dining area combined conservatory- kitchen, and where French doors then open onto a brick courtyard, and access moves up a fairly-steep back garden to a deck, and bit further on to a row of camellias which shades the hen-house. There's a large old pear tree, and a section of plants and flower that bees love to collect their nectar from. It's a story-book home, and one that is full of heart and soul. Come and share the experience, and for family who are adamant that they want a great location, this home is near Victoria University, The City, Parliament and leading schools, both private and state. Please phone to view.
