Brecon- Cottage Charm & Contemporary Design in Prime Location. **UNDER OFFER awaiting conditions**
Hidden at the end of a flat driveway and surrounded by mature rambling gardens, this outstanding double story weatherboard residence is truly breathtaking. Only moments from the Olinda village on a sealed road, her extensive living space and architectural style is in sheer contrast from her understated street aspect.
The original classic cottage at the front has been superbly preserved with 1920's period detailing, extended for a modern family lifestyle with attention to quality paramount in the design and decor. The main entrance, featuring a French antique door and stone highlights in the floor, opens to a formal lounge and library warmed by an open fire framed by a timber mantle. A box bay window a perfect reminder of the past. Mellow timber floors complement the era yet add functionality extending throughout the living areas while plush carpet adorns the upstairs zone.
The kitchen has timeless appeal, an island bench central with generous storage, Bosch appliances and country style ceramic sink overlooks a private paved courtyard. Double French doors open onto a timber deck and crazy paved outdoor entertainment area connects this glorious garden to the home.
A contemporary extension allows abundant light to fill the family room, with floor to ceiling double glazed and highlight windows, skylights, soaring ceilings, absolutely perfect for capturing the northern sun, star gazing or cloud watching. This area opens into the studio, perfect for working from home or utlise as an additional bedroom. French doors give access to an appealing covered veranda area and garden aspect.
The master suite is privately situated away from the other bedrooms on the lower level and incorporates an en-suite, styled with neutral colour tonings, separate WC and frameless shower. A walk in robe sits adjacent.
The upper level of the home offers two additional spacious bedrooms, complete with modern family bathroom, a third separate toilet and an open mezzanine study or fourth bedroom. Great for contemporary zoned family living.
Externally, the established European style gardens with meandering pathways, lined in stone walls and steps, lead to hidden garden rooms with private seating nooks. Years of love and additions in the garden by previous owners over her time has created a wide variety of plantings often found in older hills properties such as Camelias, Maples, Birches, Rhododendrons, various bulbs, hellebores to name a few- Brecon is an absolute gardeners paradise. A garden shed and generous workshop provides storage and a tinkering space, a double garage with direct access to the house for secure access, there's even a cat run and hen house to add to the charm.
Situated on a very private 2/3 acre (2325m2 approx.), and within easy walking distance to the Olinda village and cafes, transport and walking trails, Brecon represents everything desired for quintessential hills living in the perfect location immersed in the wonderful hills community.
