OPEN the gate and step inside a homely residence brimming with character.
Situated at 199 Hope Street, on the corner of Piper Street, is this unique three-bedroom home that has been renovated throughout.
The renovations have been carried out gradually over the past seven years, since the current owners moved in.
Carefully considered, the updates have brought the home forward in time without losing its individuality.
Stepping over the threshold, you find yourself in a large formal living room, featuring a big bay window, brick mantel and polished floorboards.
The walls have been painted a neutral taupe shade and looking up you’ll find stylish downlights.
Depending on your needs, the living area could also be used for casual meals, as the kitchen overlooks the room.
Walking further into the home, you’ll find yourself in another living area, which is currently being used as a combined dining room and study.
The kitchen shares a wall with this room and, as there is a servery window, it makes it ideal for dining.
One of the most welcoming parts of this home is the kitchen, which has been modernised, but still fits with the aesthetic of the home.
It has a neutral colour palette, plenty of storage, stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar.
Also fully renovated is the bathroom, which boasts travertine tiles from floor to ceiling, a luxurious tub, modern vanity and a separate toilet.
Next to the bathroom is the home’s master bedroom.
This front-facing room has a bay window, window seat and built-in storage along one wall.
The home’s other two bedrooms are located upstairs.
Each of the upstairs rooms are generous in size, with either a built-in-robe or a walk-in-robe.
They also both have study nooks that overlook the front garden and their own air conditioners.
Another great feature of this home is the balcony at the back of the home.
This private space is the ideal place to enjoy a cuppa or have a family barbecue.
In addition to all of these features, 199 Hope Street also offers a single garage, gas heating downstairs and multiple split systems, a low maintenance yard with new turf and a large internal laundry.
The property is listed with Professionals Real Estate sales executive Brent Osborne.
He said the property is in a good area, close to schools, shops and parks.
“It’s quite a good spot up around here, surrounded by some really high quality homes,” Mr Osborne said.
It would be a suitable home for downsizers, couples or families.
The property will go to auction on July 28, but offers will be considered prior.
Those who want to take a look at 199 Hope Street for themselves can attend an open home on Friday between 12pm and 12.30pm.
Another open home will be held on Saturday from 11am to 11.30am.
