A PERFECT blend of old and new makes this sweet home something special.

Polished pine floorboards start at the stained glass surrounded front door and run the length of the central hallway, with decorative timber fretwork overhead.

All three bedrooms and the front sitting room are warmly carpeted. In the entrance foyer and master bedroom are pressed tin ceilings in magnificent condition. The master has built-in shelving and cabinets either side of an art deco fireplace.

In the original lounge room is another welcoming fireplace with timber surround. Cosy, this room can be used as a parents or kids retreat or formal sitting room.

This lounge and bedrooms have gorgeous ceiling roses. The bedrooms have ample storage with large robes. All three share a central bathroom with black and white checked floor.

A country style kitchen is bright in white, stainless steel and light, abundant through a glass alcove accommodating the breakfast bar. Massive, a walk-in pantry has storage for food and appliances.

A window that may have once looked over the back yard now makes a novel servery from the kitchen to the dining area in the open plan living extension.

With floor to ceiling windows across two walls, this large space is north facing and has double doors to the backyard.

Picturesque, the yard evokes yesteryear with mature plants of roses, ferns and bulbs as well as a brick alfresco area.

With the easy warmth of hydronic heating throughout, the home has been painted in fresh white and there is convenient off lane rear access to a secure garage.
