A Massive Single Level… Downsizers Dream Home!
Big and spacious is definitely an understatement for this beautiful big solid home. Located in one of Claremont's prettiest streets, which in only a few more years' time will have a full canopy across the whole street of London Plane Trees shading it all in summer.
As soon as you walk through the front door two very important aspects are quickly realised.
1: It does not have the expected standard ceiling heights of only 2.4m, but has 2.7m ceilings throughout the home and high, pitched ceilings in the kitchen and family dining area.
2: Every room is far bigger than you expected with extremely generous living areas, bedrooms and a wide central hallway. Even the laundry is huge and reminds me of a farmhouse, wet room / laundry and is conveniently located right next to the big double garage with room in there, for two cars and a workshop bench.
This home was bought as a new home by the owner's family and has obviously been lovingly maintained over that whole time. To emphasise this point, the last major works done in the last year, placed a whole new roof of terracotta clay tiles on the home. As after 35 odd years, the underside – the un-glazed side of the old ones had started to deteriorate and fret, as is typical with all clay tiles when they are so close to the ocean with its salty air.
One of the most important feature of the home is that it has a long Northern facing boundary and this fills your kitchen, casual dining area, lounge room and study/formal dining with winter sunshine and warmth.
All these rooms look out into a lovely garden area that is very easily maintained and for those that desire a nice big veggie patch, then the big courtyard on the western side of the home with its variegated lemon tree is definitely the place you can pull up the super-turf and plant your favourite veggies, as this area also catches all the winter sun.
I will let the photos show you all the other features and aspects of the home … come along this Saturday and see if you have the same reaction as I did, when I first walked through the door: Wow.. It's huge!
