1880s Parkside Terrace: Elegant Craftsmanship Blends With Sublime Contemporary Style


Fall in love with its character but stay for its blissful, easy-going lifestyle! Elegantly shaped by its historical roots, this enchanting 1880's terrace has been artfully reimagined for a family, promising seamless living within a tranquil parkside setting.

Guarding the entrance are a pair of stone lions, compelling you to follow the meandering path bordered by a majestic frangipani tree. Ascend onto the tessellated tile verandah – a sweet spot to relax and soak up the serenity. Step into the VJ lined hallway, where an interplay of natural light and soaring ceilings illuminate the wide, polished floorboards. As you pass two expansive bedrooms on your way to the family hub of this home, you will discover an elegant, sunlit, formal living room graced by a heritage fireplace. Continuing your exploration, the kitchen/dining area awaits, revealing a dream of a kitchen with custom cabinetry, a vast stone-topped island bench, 900mm Ilve oven, double fluted farmhouse sink, integrated dishwasher, and walk-in pantry. The avid chef will spend many happy moments here, whether preparing family dinners or creating culinary masterpieces. The adjoining light-filled dining area is enhanced with French door access to a charming wrought-iron laced verandah. 

Rounding out the heart of this home, and adjoining the fitted laundry and bathroom, you'll find a comfortable family room, with seamless access to an elevated alfresco area framed by a magnificent mango tree. Tall windows and French doors immerse these family rooms in natural light, seamlessly connecting with the surrounding leafy gardens and leading to delightful outdoor spaces. These spaces encompass a lush, level lawn bordered by flourishing garden beds, complemented by a garage/studio with an adjoining patio, as well as a garden shed.

Upstairs, three additional spacious bedrooms redefine comfort and style. The air-conditioned master suite, boasting a built-in dressing room with robes and a versatile study, exudes a sense of private and spacious luxury. A contender for the title of master, the front-facing bedroom also captivates, with a stunning fireplace and French doors that opens onto its own private lace-fringed balcony – a serene haven for unwinding with a cuppa and a good book, offering picturesque treetop views over the parkland. On this level, you'll also discover the main bathroom – a sanctuary where a luxurious, free-standing claw-foot bath and ornate fireplace take pride of place. It's a delightful space to soak your cares away, allowing yourself to unwind with bubbles (of both the bath and drinkable kind).

This enticing heritage home is situated in a desirable location, across from Federal Park, and within enviable reach of the huge range of natural bushland, parks, and recreation facilities in the district. Plattsburg Public School and St Patrick's primary school are a short stroll away, as is the Wallsend swimming pool. Shopping and supermarkets are nearby, and it's a short drive to both the Uni and Glendale TAFE. Commuting is also a breeze with the convenient proximity of major arterial routes.

To experience this brilliant fusion of historic craftsmanship blended with sublime contemporary style, come and inspect today!
