Almost hidden away in the quiet end of Splatt Street, this outstanding period residence combines the elegance of yesteryear with all the luxuries of modern living on a huge 1,450sqm title in central Swan Hill.
Lofty, twelve foot ceilings, polished timber floors, and a classic central hallway, set the tone of quality that continues throughout the four bedroom home. The well-designed kitchen-living extension cleverly joins the original with the new and provides an easy flow to the timber-deck alfresco area and heated lap-pool.
With its own open fire place, the main bedroom is serviced by a large, fully-tiled en-suite (double shower and stone bench-top) and spacious walk-in wardrobe/dressing room and the unique timber-panel ceilings have been lovingly retained. Each of the other three bedrooms have an open fire, built-in wardrobes and ceiling fans. A delightful, separate sitting room enjoys access from the central hall as well as the north-facing veranda and is the perfect spot to enjoy a good book in front of the open fire. A free-standing bath is a feature of the main bathroom with a separate shower and stone bench-tops. Convenient to both the living rooms and bedrooms the private study houses the controls of the security system with video surveillance throughout the property.
Continuing the classic lines of the original home, the new living room extension (built by Reece Collins) is bright and modern with exposed aggregate polished concrete floors, double-glazed windows and triple-sliding doors creating an easy flow between outside and in. Cooking will be a pleasure in this state-of-the-art kitchen and the open-plan design means the family chef will never be far from the action. Whether it’s a family dinner or entertaining guests, the well-designed kitchen will make it easy with a 900mm gas cooktop, electric under-bench oven, dishwasher and wide appliance cupboard. The large island bench with double sink allows for smooth traffic in this delightful space and the kitchen, dining and living rooms all enjoy panoramic views to the outdoor deck, in-ground pool and established rear garden.
Climate control is well and truly covered with ducted reverse-cycle air conditioning which doesn’t have to work that hard due to the fully insulated walls, floors and ceilings.
You’ll make the most of Swan Hill’s fabulous climate on the Mountain Ash outdoor deck (with Mountain Ash ceiling) which includes a built-in BBQ and fully plumbed sink, overhead heating, ceiling fans and a remote controlled roll-down shade wall. From the deck, you gain a full view of the 12.2m in-ground lap-pool with reverse-cycle heating, self-cleaning and salt-chlorination system. The pool is highlighted by Shane Noonan quality paving setting the scene for many great days and nights in and around the crystal clear water.
Enjoying a 30m frontage to central Splatt Street, “Allawah” has both front vehicular access as well as access from the rear lane to the large free-standing garage with room for two vehicles (remote control doors) plus a spacious workshop with concrete floor and 3 phase power.
Astute buyers will know how rare it is to find a property that offers all these features and benefits and as experienced estate agents, we know you’ll find “Allawah” a pleasure to inspect, a thrill to purchase and delight to live in.
