AUCTION SAT 7/7/[email protected] (UNLESS SOLD PRIOR)
GRAND OPENING SAT 23RD JUN AT 1.30PM
Set on almost an acre of regenerated tranquil native bushland, hidden from view but within walking distance to some of the area’s most sought-after schools and the popular Norman Ave shops, this property boasts an ideal mix of being a haven from the outside world and offering day-to-day living convenience.
At the end of a long horseshoe driveway, surrounded by gums and wattle trees, is this split level brick house that’s perfect for a family. Featuring 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plus multi-zoned living areas and floorboards throughout, the house has opportunities for remodelling to suit your style or live comfortably in it as is.
The glass panelled front entry opens into the light and large (6.1m x 6.1m) living room with timber floorboards stretching before you, and a potbelly wood heater providing fantastic warmth and atmosphere. A set of glass doors leads out the back to the picturesque courtyard, and through another doorway is a vast room that can be used as a bedroom, home office or rumpus room.
Step up into the dining room, where another wall of windows and a door leads directly out onto the appealing paved alfresco dining area. Directly opposite the dining room is a well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, 90cm oven, attractive wooden benches and plenty of storage. The functional laundry with storage cupboard lies just beyond.
Take one more step up into the cavernous pool/games room, where kids can play while other family members and visitors relax and enjoy the outlook across the terrace and beautiful in-ground pool, with its own newly clad pergola, built in BBQ and plenty of capacity for summertime poolside lounging.
Two double bedrooms with BIRs, and a family bathroom (with shower over bath and a separate toilet) flank this space, with the master bedroom at the end of the house. This is a space that has to be seen to be believed and is a genuine retreat, with plenty of room for a cosy couch up one end and a dressing area up the other, all sunlit by a bank of windows, with its own door onto the terrace. Four built in wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom complete the package.
The home has in-floor ducted heating, high ceilings, generously sized rooms, a lock up garage and parking for more than half a dozen vehicles.
The well-planned outdoor spaces on the property are a wonderland for both adults and children alike. Spend all year round in the charming courtyard, accessed from both the kitchen and the living room, and finished off with a combination of timber decking and stone paving – it’s the ideal place for a fire pit or chiminea. Leading out the back of the courtyard is a secure area that’s currently used as a dog run but is ripe to be transformed into a landscaped garden.
The kids will spend hours exploring amongst the abundance of trees (with Kookaburras, King Parrots, Tawny Frogmouths and plenty of other birdlife making regular appearances), or down in the small tributary of Sweetwater Creek that flows gently through and intersects with Tangenong Creek at the front of the property. There’s also a chook house plus vegetable gardens, fruit trees, camellias and lovingly regenerated native plants to keep gardening enthusiasts happy.
In the Frankston High and Derinya Primary School zones, and down the street from Woodleigh’s ‘Minimbah’ Junior campus, your children will be set when it comes to schooling.
With Frankston’s acclaimed beaches and the CBD shopping precinct only minutes drive away, this is a property ready to fulfil your every desire, with potential to be fulfilled if you want to add your stamp to the property, and hidden delights around every corner.
