This large family home in the heart of Nicholls, located in a quiet cul-de-sac and surrounded by modern prestigious homes, offers everything you could want and more! From the four double bedrooms, three bathrooms plus guest powder room, separate lounge, spacious kitchen/dining/family area, and multi-purpose room, together with large gardens, courtyards and patios, this is a genuine once-upon-a-time family residence. The gardens and interior would both benefit from some nice finishing touches, but once done would give you the home of your dreams!
Enter through the private gated courtyard and the double-door entry to the spacious entrance hall with a private guest powder room. The entrance flows to a light-filled sunken lounge room with slate flooring and access to a side courtyard running the full length of the house. To the right of the entrance hall is bedroom 1 with good sized en-suite and double robes. The laundry, with extra fridge cavity, is located to the rear of the entrance hall and has outdoor access to the covered side porch.
The kitchen-with under bench oven, four ring electric cooktop, and double sink-is the hub of the home, and the dining/family area offers lots of space for casual and formal dining and entertainment, with the family area having dual access to both the side courtyard and separate large patio or al fresco dining area.
From the family area a few steps take you up to the multi-purpose room or gallery, which offers loads of opportunity for use including media room, playroom, study, or reading room/library. This rear area of the home also includes the three other bedrooms. Bedroom 2-currently used as the master bedroom-offers space for a king size bed, and has walk-in robes, large en-suite with separate bath and shower, and 4-heat Tastic. Bedrooms 3 and 4 both have built-in robes and dual access to the third bathroom, also with separate bath and shower. All bedrooms are fully carpeted.
The gardens are deceptive as they wrap around the house, and with their many courtyards and patios offer lots of private sunny spaces for your morning coffee or quiet reflection. But, we're not done yet open the gate in the rear fence and step onto the beautiful Harcourt Hill right on your doorstep, and a great place to walk the dog and watch the cows and sheep grazing on the hill. A double garage completes the property.
This home offers an excellent opportunity to put your stamp on a beautiful family home in a fabulous location.
