When writing this copy, the song take my breath away' came to mind; this offering really does take your breath away. Anyone who has owned a period home, or in particular, anyone who has restored a Californian Bungalow, has a pure appreciation and respect for their requirements. This home really is next level'.
Perched gracefully on a riverside corner allotment, 4 Bacon Street offers a respectful level block of approx. 756m2. It's perfectly framed with a white picket fence and adorned by the most beautiful frangipani seen in the area. The street appeal is breathtaking and clearly the allotment caters for the extensive shedding and carport made easily accessible.
Before we extend to you the remainder of our brief, we would like to inform you that we have compiled an extensive property booklet to ensure no detail has been overlooked. The agent has relayed that most of the restoration has taken place by the current owner who is an old school' builder. A respected craftsman who has tendered this home like it was his finest work of art.
As the booklet and photos will speak volumes and educate you to all of the attributes, we would like to pay tribute to the original Architect Robert C Ashe who designed this home prior to its construction back in 1922. The home was built for a local solicitor named Kiesh Taylor and was later released to the next custodian being Professor Lauri Richardson. Historically, this property has attracted the ownership of respected local identities and it will be with a sense of pride and privilege when the keys are handed over.
In its entirety, the four bedroom and two bathroom, fully restored home features 11ft ceilings throughout, ornate fretwork, pressed metal accents, intricate leadlight windows and doors, tessellated tiling, polished spotted gum floorboards and further key features such as the quintessential claw-foot bath and French doors to the veranda. There is even a well in the backyard.
Modern upgrades include ducted air conditioning throughout, solar and 3 phase power, solar hot water, a fresh timeless kitchen upgrade, new wiring and plumbing, water tanks, ceiling and underfoot insulation alongside the 11x9m shedding and large carport or entertainment area.
