It is my absolute pleasure to present to you this truly superior home. 76 Vancouver Street is the perfect blend of yesteryear charm and modern convenience. I know what you are thinking, and yes you have heard that tag line before but I promise you there is a reason the phrase exists and it is because of homes like this one. Homes that are created with the highest quality and in perfect harmony of the old and the new, timber floors, decorative architraves, ceiling roses, claw foot baths, high ceilings, practical modern style layouts, stainless steel high end appliances, outdoor entertaining areas and garaging.
Once a sweet little 1900’s cottage the current owners have transformed this once quaint property into the spacious masterpiece it is today. The size is thanks to a massive extension completed with the utmost of care and consideration and with a design to ensure that the charm of the original heritage features would not be lost but instead that they would continue through into the new. What has resulted is an award winning stunningly beautiful renovated home that really is the perfect blend. The kitchen is amazing with lovely timber benchtops, top of the range Smeg 900mm gas cooker, dishwasher and the big bonus here is the on-trend scullery. The laundry is cleverly hidden away to the rear of the scullery and has tons of bench and cupboard space and can be closed away from the remainder of the space. The home has two super comfy living areas. The first is the open plan area that is comprised of the kitchen, dining space and of course lounge space. Timber framed French doors open out to the outdoor living area that features lined ceiling and timber decking flooring. The area is heated by an open fire place and gas heater. The fire place is a real feature of the room with the stone of the surrounds being sourced and hand collected locally. The second is a roomy formal lounge to the front of the home that has a gas log fire and access to the home office. This room could be easily converted for use as a fourth bedroom should you require it but currently is a great place to lay back and enjoy a good book. The master suite is to die for, it is a king size room and is complemented by an enormous walk in robe and on trend ensuite. The tasteful colour scheme will never date and the large shower recess, his and hers basins and a claw foot bathtub provide the luxury one deserves. The two other bedrooms are also huge and are well placed throughout the home to allow each bedroom privacy from the other. The two minor bedrooms are serviced or should I say spoilt by the family bathroom with a separate large shower recess and bathtub, again finished with both quality and a tasteful colour scheme. Natural light fills every room and the use of large windows and a very clever addition of French doors and a sunroom area mid-way down the central passage a touch of genius that provides even more light. There is something to admire from every room whether it be the lovely garden outlooks, harbour glimpses or simply the quality craftmanship. I imagine that it would be hard to leave home for work each morning but oh such a joy to return each afternoon. Outside is more of the same quality and thoughtfulness as is found inside. The large double garage has a good amount of paved area surrounding it so even though you are right in town, parking for you and guests should not be a problem. The gardens are both pretty and practical with established fruit trees and ornamental plants working together to create a low maintenance but highly enjoyable yard.
It’s not just an awe-inspiring home on offer here, it is an enviable lifestyle in a part of Albany that is tightly held and for good reason. With a high level of interest expected do not delay call today to arrange your inspection.
