All the hard work is done in this inviting Inner North family home that blends character with modern style and comfort, offering plenty of room for everyone. Situated in a quiet tree-lined street shaded by a canopy of oaks, this privately built house has been comprehensively renovated and extended to create an impressive, modern family home offering large, light filled living areas, which flow onto outdoor entertaining space. There are four generous bedrooms, including a massive new master with ensuite and walk-in robe, and an adjacent study or nursery. This light-filled family home includes fantastic outdoor entertaining areas, plenty of storage, and is situated in an enviable, central location.

Attractively landscaped gardens, new Colorbond roofing and the brick garage add to the excellent street appeal. This is complemented by large double-glazed sliding doors onto the wide front terrace.

The welcoming entry leads into the spacious formal dining room. Decorative cornices, polished hardwood flooring and rich decor highlight the character of the original home, while contemporary improvements include double glazing, a new reverse cycle air conditioning unit, and stylish light fittings. The updated Tasmanian Oak kitchen, featuring a five burner gas cooktop, stainless steel oven and range hood, as well as a new Smeg dishwasher, pantry, oak benchtops and display cabinets. From the kitchen there is access to an expansive, sheltered paved entertaining area and this fantastic, north facing, outdoor living area can be enjoyed all year round and overlooks the grassy rear garden.

On the lower level, three large secondary bedrooms all feature polished hardwood flooring and built-in wardrobes while the main bathroom has been updated. A fabulous new laundry, opening on to a private area with clothes line, forms part of the superbly designed extension.

The fantastic, large light filled main living area faces north, while high ceilings accentuate the spacious feel of the room. Double glazing, wall insulation and a reverse cycle air conditioning unit guarantee year round comfort. This is also promoted by the use of sliding doors here and in all living areas, giving access to the outdoors and ensuring a refreshing breeze through the home.

A Tasmanian Oak staircase leads up to the light and airy, luxuriously proportioned master suite, with air conditioning, which enjoys an elevated outlook over treetops. A wall panel conceals the huge walk-through robe, and the bright, modern ensuite is designed on the same scale. Adjacent to the master bedroom is a nursery or study.

The large, private rear garden has three raised veggie beds hosting a variety of vegetables, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherry and lemon trees. The property has a large water tank that can be connected to the laundry, a chook pen and two garden sheds. An additional under cover storage area is at the side of the house for bikes. The brick garage has an auto door, ceiling insulation and Colorbond roof. There is ample off street parking on the new driveway for up to four cars.

Only a short walk to the Downer oval and new cafe, while local schools, colleges and Dickson shopping precinct are close by. Public transport is nearby, with a single bus ride into the City and the home is positioned close to a network of bike paths and the future light rail.
