MODERN and period combine to sublime effect in this red and white, solid brick home with steeped roofline.

Inside many of the home’s original features have been kept while the kitchen and bathrooms have been updated to twenty-first century standards.

A front sitting room exhibits many of the home’s yesteryear charm with two sets of glorious stained glass double French doors with timber surrounds. Features extend out into the extra wide entrance hall with double front doors to the verandah. Many of the rooms have doors in dark timber of the architraves with stained glass on top.

Central to the ground floor is the modern kitchen with country style cupboards and natural timber look floorboards that continue into the adjacent meals area.

There is a long servery from the kitchen into the formal dining room which is decked in built-in dark timber and stained glass cabinetry.

On the other side of the kitchen is the main updated bathroom in charcoal and white with built-in spa bath, corner shower and vanity. Choose where you sleep, upstairs or down, with two large bedrooms on each floor. On ground level one bedroom is at the front and one at back.

Upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom. Both have built-in robes and lovely views.

A small decked area is well protected on three sides by the house and there is a small alfresco area at the backdoor.

Further afield, beyond green grass, is a paved undercover alfresco attached to a studio with kitchenette and bar.

There is a double garage and carport with off street parking for five cars.

The home is in a great location with the best of inner city living - shops, cafes, medical facilities, Lake Wendouree and the CBD - all just a short stroll away.
