"Thainston" - 1917 Federation Home on 919sqm Block

Built c.1917 and on offer for the first time since 1970, 'Thainston' presents an outstanding opportunity to enjoy one of the suburb's early homes in a prime 'Waratah Heights' location. Set back from the street bordered by established gardens, the classic Federation façade and front verandah welcomes you inside to a generously proportioned floorplan that ideally caters to family life. On entry, a central hallway splits two large bedrooms before spacious lounge and dining sits at the heart of the home where a previous extension has created a versatile family room and two smaller bedrooms. Whilst both bathrooms and the kitchen could benefit from an overhaul, their proportions and layout offer an ideal canvas for either a cosmetic refresh or a full contemporary makeover. Step out the back door to an undercover outdoor entertaining area. From here, gaze out to the garden lined with trees and established flowerbeds. The wide block includes a long driveway to a double carport, while a rear lane provides access to a double garage. On your doorstep, Waratah Shopping Village, two colleges, two primary schools, regular buses and the Calvary Mater Hospital.
