Feels Like Home: 268A Durham Street

MANY things can make a home, from its location to the amount of natural light, but sometimes it is the smallest details that can make the difference between a good home and an exceptional one.

With that in mind, 268A Durham Street is a property not to be overlooked, and in some cases that can be nearly impossible to do. 

For one thing, it is located in a very well-known part of Bathurst, but is one of the only new-builds on the road. 

At just three years old, there is no doubt that this home can offer everything the modern family needs. 

The attention to detail can be seen as early as the entrance hallway when you step inside this home. 

Instead of your traditional picture rails, this home offers gallery rails to support your most prized photos and artwork. 

The formal living room, located at the very front of the home, offers double doors with etching in the glass that matches the timber doors throughout the rest of the home. 

This space offers a quiet retreat from the open-plan living area at the heart of the home. 

A key design feature of the open-plan area is the location of the kitchen.

It sits in a central position, thereby creating two distinct living and dining zones. 

The kitchen also stuns with its modern design, featuring an elegant marble benches and a pop of colour with the bright red slashback.

It also offers a disguised walk-in pantry, 900-millimetre oven and a breakfast bar. 

This home offers four generous bedrooms, situated throughout the home. 

The majority of them come off a second hallway in the home, which also provides access to the family bathroom and laundry. 

Each bedroom offers a built-in-robe, while the master has a walk-in-robe in addition to a built-in – an extremely rare feature. 

The master also offers a well-appointed ensuite. 

Outdoors, this home continues to impress.

It features a covered outdoor entertaining area with ceiling fan, alfresco dining to the side of the home and a good-sized yard with all the landscaping done. 

In addition to all of this, 268A Durham Street includes high-quality window furnishings, ducted heating and a double garage with extra height, length and width. 

Bathurst Real Estate agent Sandy Fairbrother said that this would make a fantastic home for a family that wants to be close to the CBD, schools and parks. 

He also said that, despite it’s location, the property is extremely quiet. 

“There is really no traffic noise at all through the back of the house,” Mr Fairbrother said. “And all the walls are well insulated from the traffic noise.” 

He also stressed that despite what the address suggests, this home is not part of a strata.

It was once part of a large block on Durham Street, but has since been subdivided, purchased and then built upon by the current owners. 

An open home inspection will be held at the property on Saturday from 12.15pm to 12.45pm.
