Character charm coheres with modern updates at this classic River Road villa. Full of contemporary comfort, the 1920s home has been tastefully transformed for 21st century living. It targets a family seeking a spacious internal environment, a large outdoor area, zoning for quality education and a central location. A great balance of space is provided by two separate living zones, including a light-filled family area that opens to the private backyard. A stone-look kitchen adds fresh modern appeal and practicality. A double bedroom downstairs, with ensuite access, is ideal for guests, who are sure to enjoy the big tiled walk-in shower with two shower roses. There is an office, or fifth bedroom option. Upstairs presents a further three double bedrooms including a well-appointed master with two walk-in robes, dual bathroom vanities and a fully tiled double shower. A quality bathroom serves the children's bedrooms. Creature comforts are impressive. There are two HRV systems, heat pumps and air-conditioning, a gas fire and gas infinity hot water. Cooking is also gas. Speakers in the lounge heighten your entertainment experience and the sunny backyard is a warm inviting spot screened from neighbours. Kids have plenty of room to run about and the sheltered alfresco encourages outdoor dining. The section is purpose-designed for easy care. Character detailing creates personality throughout the home, which boasts a double internal access garage housing a laundry and clothesline. An electronic gate and house alarm provide peace of mind security, and four vehicles can be safely parked on site. Central location and Hamilton Boys' High School are great enticements for a family. Weekends can be spent enjoying the nearby river walks and local parks, including Jesmond, Parana and Claudelands. Shops, cafes, Claudelands Arena and the CBD are all in walking distance. A wonderful sense of 'own little world' makes the property extra special.
