Stepping through the front door of this beautiful Californian Bungalow home is a delight, from the leadlight windows, polished floors and original panelling. You could believe you were in 1937. Keep walking past the 2 bedrooms both with BIR, on this floor and you walk into a more modern era. The home has been lovingly updated and extended over the past decade to bring it into this century and was architecturally designed with energy efficiency in mind.
The open plan kitchen, dining, living room is modern but fits in with the old world charm. French doors open onto the rear entertaining deck with an undercover BBQ area and plenty of space for table and chairs overlooking the garden.
The kitchen has all the convenience of stainless steel appliances and dishwasher and adjoins a walk in pantry that has provision for sink to be connected but could be used as home office, sewing or crafts.
Also downstairs is the updated bathroom with walk in shower, double vanity and a separate toilet.
Wander up the staircase, made of beautiful recycled timber from the original rafters, and you look up into the thermal chimney that opens to let out the hot air in summer. There are 3 further bedrooms on this level as well as a family bathroom and a superb family living room with north facing window making it wonderfully light filled.
This north window even boasts a window seat for relaxing with a book and plenty of under eaves storage.
The family bathroom on this level has a wonderful deep bath, a separate shower and vanity set on the fabulous recycled timber bench.
Year-round comfort is maintained with ducted gas heating throughout and a split system upstairs for those hot summer days. Solar power on a premium feed in tariff allows the current owners enough rebates to pay their gas bill. The solar hot water is another cost saver.
Outside the gardens are set up to produce much of the fruit and vegetable needs for the family but could easily be transformed back to more lawn area if required.
Being a corner block car access is provided to the secure carport and tandem double garage from Edgar street.
Being a short walk to Lake Colac, Schools, kindergarten and the IGA makes this family home ideally situated.
