STUNNING CHARACTER FAMILY HOME
In this friendly area, with historic homes, a little less density and a few more trees than you may find in surrounding suburbs, life it truly convenient – with shopping and many top schools literally a few minutes away. You’d be surprised that you can even get to far-flung (3.5km by road ) Westerford/SACS school by 8 a.m if you leave here at 7.30 a.m. via Main Rd.
The main house consists of 4 bedrooms in one wing – with airconditioning in the largest and 4th bedroom and built in cupboards in 2 bedrooms. There are 2 thoroughly modernized bathrooms with heated towel rails and undertile heating – one with shower and double basin, and one with bath. Both formal dining room and lounge have wood-burning fireplaces – the lounge has a closed combustion fireplace.
The house has extremely high ceilings, and wooden floors throughout except for kitchen which is tiled. (The floors do need attention in places.)
The kitchen and scullery are plumbed for dishwasher and washing machine – with reinforced shelf for tumble dryer. Kitchen tops are wood, with stone in the scullery.
The property has a naturally inaccessible street perimeter – with a thick and well-established hedge. There is a modern touch screen alarm system with external beams, burglar bars, and electric fencing on 2 sides. This area also enjoys a very efficient security network via WatsApp and ADT presence.
A major boost to the tone of the area has been the new Pick n Pay centre and general upgrade of the Kenilworth/Summerley business node. This is good for values in the area. There’s a post office in Mains Avenue, and rumours of a Woollies coming soon – not forgetting that you can walk with the family down to legendary Borusso’s Pizzeria.
