Listing ID MVE8425

Brimming with character features, this gracious home built around 1910 now offers the best of both worlds. A modern refurbishment sits happily under 3m ceiling heights and a sleek chef’s kitchen is a delightful contrast to white painted wood panelling. North and west facing for all day sun, the home sits on 703sqm in a most convenient Merivale street just a few minutes’ stroll from the Village and close to both private and in-zone schools including Elmwood, Heaton, CGHS and CBHS. During these winter months you will be pampered with full double glazing, full insulation, ducted central heating and two gas fires. Huge room sizes are a luxury not often found in our modern builds and this has a flexible layout to suit a family’s needs. A second living space or a fourth bedroom; the choice is yours! There are even consented plans to extend into the vast roof space. All securely fenced, this is a private and safe environment, yet moments from several bustling cafés, restaurants, and shopping precincts. Be quick to view as there is little to compare and this one is special!
