The timeless design of this brick and iron home boasts a sunken, open-plan living zone, formal lounge room and a spacious principal suite with renovated ensuite. A sunny balcony along the home’s northern face provides an ideal breakfast spot surrounded by a well-kept natural landscape and serenaded by birdsong.
A brick colonnade sweeps from the double carport to the front door and a wide entryway on the home’s upper level. A central, carpeted walkway opens on one side to a junior bedroom with a large, south-facing window before continuing past a tall atrium and into the quiet of a formal lounge room.
Carpeted stairs lead down to the open plan family room, meals area and kitchen; large floor tiles, a wall of windows and a limited colour palette fashion a delightful living space awash with natural light and treetop vistas. Two reverse cycle air-conditioners and a slow combustion fire ensure year-round comfort in this central zone.
The kitchen is a bright, well-appointed space with a wall oven and electric hob. A large bay window highlights the modern simplicity of white cabinetry and white tile splashback.
The generously proportioned main bedroom boasts a corner window with valley views and is fitted with a modern ceiling fan and split system air-conditioning. Copious built-in robes provide ample storage. The adjoining ensuite has been transformed into a contemporary pampering space with a modern soaking tub and walk-in rain head shower delivering an at-home spa experience. The second junior bedroom and a shared family bathroom sit at the end of the central walkway on the upper level.
Brick and stone paths meander through the landscaped gardens. Stone walls, easy-care plantings and reticulation create an outdoor space for lots of living and little work. A sweep of stone path leads to the undercroft studio and a secure storage room. These flexible spaces have power and concrete floors – the studio has a gas bayonet – and can be styled for various uses – an at-home workspace with a separate entry, a teens’ retreat or an activity room.
The 1740 sqm block delivers a quintessential Darlington setting with excellent access to arterial roads, schools and the heart of Darlington village. Automatic reticulation, 4 kW solar system and a Solarhart solar hot water system add to the sense of freedom offered by this property.
