Charming 1920's character and stylish modern updates blend effortlessly to create a truly gorgeous home that will have you at 'Hello!' Original hardwood floors, high ornate ceilings and leadlight features will all catch your eye, while a recent renovation to the family bathroom and the addition of plantation shutters, ducted air-conditioning and solar panels are all designed to provide 21st century comfort and style. Sit fireside in the formal lounge room, entertain in the dining room, or stretch out in the family room at the rear – there's a surprising amount of space inside this three-bedroom home. Dine alfresco come rain, hail or shine on the new covered deck, park both your cars in the double garage, and enjoy the convenience of a second bathroom in the external laundry. Delighting you even more, the fenced garden is a hidden treasure with a rear gate opening directly onto adjoining reserve where local kids like to play. Positioned at the peaceful cul-de-sac end of Selwyn Street, from here it's an easy four-minute drive to the surf or The Junction for dining and shopping and you can be in the city and harbour in no time.
