47 South Road, Woodend - $935,000
Très, très, chic!
The exterior of this lovely house is of a classic Australian country residence, with its front veranda and symmetrical face, but inside, it’s French provincial all the way.
In the construction, fixtures, fittings and décor, no expense has been spared and the result is a charming and appealing home.
Throughout the living and dining areas, the wide floorboards are of glorious American oak. The lounge room has a wonderful open fireplace and chimney in red brick, and access to a sheltered deck. Three metre ceilings enhance the feeling of generous space, and a cosy sitting room could provide an additional bedroom, according to need.
The kitchen is a vision, with fire-clay butlers sink, beautiful cabinets and splash backs in white. The bench tops are Smartstone carrara, and the appliances include cooking appliances by Smeg, and a Miele dishwasher. The laundry has loads of cupboards and bench space to make light work of family washing.
There are three bedrooms and a study. The master is at the front of the house, and has an elegant ensuite with a beautiful Sarreguemines pedestal basin, and WIR.
The home is made cozy with ducted heating and 100% wool carpet. Double glazing, and extensive in-wall and underfloor insulation contribute to a 6.6 star energy rating.
The garden has been attractively landscaped and features gravel paths and terrace, brick edging and extensive planting. This residence enjoys a beautiful rural outlook of lightly treed woodland. Surprisingly, given its tranquil and semi rural location, Woodend town centre is around two kilometres away, and the local bus stops just around the corner.
