House Sold - Frankston South VIC
Nestled within a quiet, leafy cul-de-sac in a desirable pocket of Frankston South, lies a seaside inspired cottage.
This rendered brick 1960’s home has beautiful original large windows, which bring in an abundance of natural light, silver ash timber floorboards, raked roofline and an open fireplace.
Sympathetically updated over the last four years, to create a smooth flow between open-plan kitchen, dining and living. Silver ash timber decking combines with bi-fold French doors, opening out to the rear of the home, to further connect indoor and outdoor living spaces.
An enchanting front garden, behind a high picket fence for privacy, and graced with a beautiful Elm tree, has blue-stone steps leading up to a new timber landing and patio, framed by glass balustrading, for an inviting entrance into the home.
The kitchen, at the ‘heart of the home’, features white cabinetry with ample storage and soft close drawers; stainless steel appliances, including gas stove top and new oven; and an island bench with freshly updated timber benchtop and breakfast bar.
Alongside the kitchen sits a separate dining area, overlooking the front garden; while a cosy, corner lounge is positioned across from the fireplace.
Near the rear entrance is a versatile space, which could easily house either a console table or study nook, if working from home.
Clerestory windows, plantation shutters and venetian blinds let light in and direct the eye towards the exterior and gardens, while giving privacy to indoor living areas.
Refreshed light fittings adorn the interior, throughout the dwelling, providing ambience and function. A combination of new and period doors have also been fitted for the entire home.
The remodeled bathroom, adjacent powder room and laundry have been elegantly appointed with timeless white cabinetry, stone bench tops, chrome fittings, double-hung windows, venetian blinds and ample storage with soft closing drawers.
Warm sensor lighting on the vanity, dimmable downlights over the bath and makeup light also feature in the bathroom, as well as iridescent mosaic tiling in the recessed shelves for the shower and bath.
The powder room is finished with designer tapware and complementary fittings, while the laundry includes an apron-front sink, built-in folding ironing board and pet door.
The master bedroom looks out onto the front yard, with its large window, dressed with long drapes, and has a freestanding, customised wardrobe. Both remaining bedrooms have built-in wardrobes with mirrored doors. A linen closet in the hallway also provides generous storage. Each of the three bedrooms are carpeted.
Gas-ducted heating, split-system and instant hot water system provide comfort.
The living area flows out onto a north-facing back deck and lawn, through opened bifold French doors for an alfresco entertaining area. It’s also an ideal spot to capture some sunshine or simply relax on the bench seat, between the raised garden beds.
The remote double garage, with custom shelving and work bench, is accessible through the fully fenced backyard, as well.
Perfectly situated at the gateway of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula; within walking distance to Norman Avenue shops and cafes, Sweetwater Creek Nature Reserve, Baden Powell Reserve, Yamala Bowling Club and Tennis Centre; and just a short drive to Mt Eliza Village, Bayside Shopping Centre and local beaches.
Zoned for Frankston High and Derinya Primary Schools.
