Contact us at email@example.com anytime to arrange an inspection appointment - weekday or weekend - whenever it suits you.
Stylishly renovated throughout and chocked with timber features, upstairs house with great entertaining areas surrounded by lush tropical gardens ona typically large old Darwin block (817m2) in sought after area (100m from one of Darwin's best primary schools; 1 min to Casuarina shops, CDU, Dripstone HS; 3 mins to Casuarina Beach or the hospital)- in a great neighbourhood that will be increasingly in demand once Myer arrives - WITHIN EASY WALKING DISTANCE!
The view from the road belies many of the features that make this a 'typically Darwin' yet unique and wonderful residence to come home to.
The top floor was rebuilt after being flattened in cyclone Tracy - and the owner made some fantastic choices - both for lifestyle and future safety - steel beams in a raised roof (10ft ceilings) give the whole home, particularly the living area, a spacious and airy feel. Full length windows and/or sliding glass doors in all bedrooms and living area add to the spacious feel. The (rear) verandah - sandstone look tiles on a concrete base - runs the full length of the house, with ample room for entertaining, has four double sliding doors for access from living area (x 2), hallway and main bedroom - and looks out on a very well established tropical garden that gives almost complete privacy. An undercover spiral staircase gives 'keep dry' access from the undercover parking to the upstairs.
Inside, timber features include: Spotted gum floating floorboards and timber skirting in living area, all bedrooms and hall, all internal doorframes and doors; venetian blinds in living area and all bedrooms; curtain rods and rings throughout.
Lush tropical garden views for every room - even the bathroom ;-)
Split system air conditioners in living area and all three bedrooms. Austar connections in both living area and main bedroom.
Mirrored built in wardrobes in all three bedrooms and the large linen cupboard.
Kitchen includes extensive and clever (deep pot cupboards, two lazy susans in corners) storage - including a walk in pantry; Modern stainless steel appliances including oven - which has a gas stove top (very handy for power outages and cheap to run) with electric oven, and brand new dishwasher.
The main bathroom has been completely renovated and includes a luxury twin spa, granite benchtop and stylish, top quality tiling and fittings. Solar hot water definitely helps with those power tariffs.
Reticulated tropical garden includes dedicated collections of orchids, bromiliads, hibiscus, frangipani and bougainvillea - not to mention a wide range of palms and ferns - all will be staying with the house, even those in pots.
Remote controlled security gate entry ensures you are not only secure but won't get saturated in those stunning wet season storms - instead you can enjoy the spectacle from the dry safety of the wide-eaved verandah.
Downstairs is a robust cyclone shelter, laundry, 2nd bathroom (shower and toilet) and a large space currently equipped with extensive shelving for storage - or easily converted into further living or accommodation space. The outdoor undercover spa is the perfect place to relax after a big day of work or play, particularly at this time of year. Undercover parking for at least 4 cars.
