This four-bedroom family home at 26 Sherbrooke Street in Ainslie, retains much of its original character and charm.
“The front of the home is original,” says LJ Hooker Dickson franchise owner Stephen Bunday, “a double brick 1950s character cottage with wood fireplace and ornate cornice”.
“Even the pink cast-iron bath in the main bathroom is original.”
While 26 Sherbrooke Street honours its past, it also looks to its future, with a host of modern features including an architect-designed extension celebrating open-plan living.
“The home is fitted with an abundance of luxury features including custom-made block-out curtains, double glazed windows, instant boiling hot water tap, pyrolytic oven, high quality custom-made cabinetry, heated towel rails, mains gas connection for barbecue on the deck and a water tank that services the ensuite toilet and back garden,” Bunday says.
The main bedroom suite is the ideal parents’ retreat, home to a large walk-in robe and ensuite, while the remaining three bedrooms, with built-in robes, are segregated from the rest of the home and living spaces.
“The close proximity to a variety of schools, the large open-plan living that flows onto the back deck and the separation between the kids wing and adult suite makes this the perfect family home,” says Bunday.
“The current owners love that everything is within walking distance – the Dickson pool, the Dickson shops, the light rail, Ainslie shops, a variety of schools – everything is at your fingertips.”
