This large homestead at the end of popular Bingley Street is a superb family residence. An original landmark property in the area in an enviable position with sweeping views over Howrah Beach extending across the Derwent to the city and Mt Wellington. Comprising multiple living areas, ample accommodation and impressive kitchen and bathrooms, the home caters perfectly to a large family requiring lots of space or professional couple wanting to work from home.
An aggregate driveway leads to the home with easy access to 4 carparks at front or the remote double garage. Lovely established gardens frame the sandstone stairs and English lamp posts which lead to the front door and entry landing. A foyer and hallway provide access to either the main living areas or bedroom wing, with an internal staircase to the lower level. The living areas are light and spacious with an open kitchen and dining area, and adjoining lounge and family or formal dining rooms. The kitchen features an island bench and breakfast bar with stone benchtops, quality stainless steel appliances and polished TasOak floors, with an informal dining area opening to a large terrace overlooking the water. The dual lounge areas also enjoy the spectacular view, with an original stone feature wall and mantle with wood heater. All living areas enjoy a beautiful sunny aspect all year round and there are also 2x heat pumps for convenient climate control.
Also on the upper level are 3 dedicated bedrooms, the main with a stylish ensuite bathroom, plus a home office or 4th bedroom option. There is also a large and versatile rumpus room with separate access off the entry landing, which could just as easily be used as a large bedroom or guest room, or larger work space from home. It is the downstairs areas of the home with perhaps the most potential, an enormous space absolutely perfect as a games room or man cave with room for a snooker table, table tennis, a lounge, home cinema and more. There is a wood heater and also a separate bathroom and laundry. Adjoining the games room is also a huge workshop or storage area with access through to the double garage.
The grounds surrounding the home are fully landscaped with a courtyard and lawn sections at the rear and some beautiful plants and garden beds. The home is ideally situated in close proximity to local schools, shops and recreational areas including both Little Howrah and Howrah Beaches, and a very short commute to Shoreline Plaza or Rosny Park. Certainly a remarkable home in a terrific location with an absolute abundance of room.
