Steeped in history this magnificent home circa 1908 could tell many a story of years gone by. Sitting on a gentle slope that allows some pretty impressive views down towards the Mersey River, and surrounded by magnificent trees, Stromness is certainly a home suited to those that are impressed by Federation architecture and all the fabulous features homes built in this period are renowned for.
So let's take a walk through this magnificent home…
Stromness is warm and inviting, partly due to the magnificent large windows, featuring some of the most magnificent stained glass and together with excellent heating, this makes for a cosy environment.
The kitchen is open plan with the dining and the main lounge room. The central features to these rooms are the magnificent Eureka heater, nestled stunningly in the brick fireplace, the beautiful timber kitchen and the Celery Pine floor boards. The kitchen allows plenty of room for storage with an open larder/pantry. The lounge room, where you can all come together has a central fire place, yet another magnificent feature.
Another gem in this home is the formal lounge… with views out over the gardens this rooms is breathtaking. The stained glass windows are spectacular as is the hidden cellar that is accessed through a trap door in this room. Just WOW… such history here with the cellar door being an original door from the Oatlands prison.
The three bedrooms are large as you would expect from a home built in this era with the master being exceptionally large complete with a stunning feature of the ornate plaster arch that leads to more magnificent stained glass windows. The features of this home are endless….
The beautiful bathroom has under floor heating, a separate shower, pedestal vanity and another glorious feature window.
A few further features not to be forgotten are:
• The home has been fully rewired
• New draining system from the backdoor area
• Garden shed with roller door
• New roof
• One key locking system for the house
• Stunning Baltic floorboards
• Two wood-heaters & a Daikin reverse cycle air conditioner
The gardens are home to some magnificent trees, including an avocado tree with a plentiful crop, two olives trees and fig tree. Some of these trees surround a pretty impressive outdoor area. With a Tuscan feel the alfresco area is home to a gorgeous woodfired pizza oven and classic vintage brick paving underfoot. This is such a beautiful private area and many a family party has been enjoyed in this gorgeous area.
The land size is a whopping 1760m2 and brilliantly this is over two titles. So there is also an opportunity here for further development (STCA).
Stromness is a wonderful family home that has been beautiful restored, whilst still retaining all the magnificent features that homes such as this are renown for.
