Exquisite Restoration of a Georgetown Gem

The exquisite restoration of this c.1937 weatherboard home will impress even the most fastidious buyer. From first sight it makes a handsome addition to David Street with its freshly painted façade, low white picket fence, and cottage garden, while the custom designed driveway that allows multi-vehicle parking is lined with camelias offering a tempting invitation into the residence.

A breathtaking domed ornate plaster ceiling with matching cornice in the master bedroom, a front door restored from a property in Carrington, polished chrome door hardware and light fittings that pay homage to the Art Deco era, a craftsman-built kitchen, and flourishes of timber from the home's original studs re-purposed in the fireplace and kitchen all serve as testament to this property's fine craftsmanship.

The re-configured three-bedroom floorplan functions for modern lifestyles with the bright open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area at the rear extending effortlessly onto the covered, spotted gum deck. This space is perfect for unwinding with family and friends as it overlooks the level lawn framed by camelias, crepe myrtle, hibiscus and two original mango trees.

Georgetown is super central and surrounded by amenities. Stroll to the local shopping strip and popular George Café, or a little further to Waratah shopping village for Coles, Kmart and independent stores. In addition, there is a great choice of primary and high schools in the vicinity.
