WITH summer on our doorstep, this Menora home ticks all the boxes with a lovely alfresco and stylish swimming pool.
The huge sheltered alfresco has a gorgeous wooden roof and an outdoor kitchen with a six-burner barbecue, fridge and sink.
This north-facing entertaining area is so big it has two areas – one for dining and another for relaxing on a leather sofa – with a swish marble-style floor rounding things off.
After a pleasant outdoor meal head down to the pool, which has a nice waterfall feature and a cantilever umbrella concreted into the ground.
There’s loads of rooms for loungers and extra outdoor seating, making this another entertainment area for family and friends (I could see teenage kids at the pool while parents chat with a drink on the deck).
For added convenience there’s an outside shower and a separate WC in the back garden.
Space won’t be an issue in this four bedroom two bathroom house, which is situated on a whopping 792sqm block.
It’s been extended and restored, and there are some lovely period touches in the original section including a stunning lounge with a vintage fireplace, ornate ceiling medallion, wooden beams and lead light windows.
You can literally feel the history in this room, and it’s a lovely nod to yesteryear in a world of pre-fabricated 4x2s.
A sitting room seamlessly connects the original section of the house with the extension which has a fantastic open plan dining/kitchen/family area.
It’s nice and airy thanks to the bi-fold windows and high ceilings, and feels like somewhere that would be nice to relax in the warmer months.
There are three bedrooms at the front of the house, including the main with built-in robes and a nice bathroom, and the fourth at the rear.
Storage won’t be a problem with a store room out the back and parking space for five cars.
The home includes a laundry, air-conditioning, a sewing room and three toilets.
Situated on Walcott Street, this home is a short walk from Blake Street Merchant restaurant, and is close to all the cafes, pubs and restaurants on the Beaufort Street strip You can access this home using a private right-of-way off Alexander Drive, which is beside a lovely private park.
This massive family home has the best of old and new with a great outdoor entertaining area.
