A Remarkable Transformation
For those of you that have spent time looking around Grafton's inner city streets during our towns annual Jacaranda Festival, there is a very strong chance that you you have either walked or driven past this remarkable pre-Federation home across the road from netball courts in the Jacaranda tree lined section of Bacon Street. It's very hard to miss. Standing bold and proud, this home has been a part of Grafton's rich architectural tapestry and our proud vendors have over the past 10 years undertaken a complete renovation that is nothing short of remarkable.
All the features you would expect to experience with a much loved home built at the turn of the century are here. Front timber picket fence with an impressive paved formal entry, timeless weatherboard exterior, wide covered front verandah to welcome guests, bay windows, broad hallways and room entrances, decorative stained glass touches, original and larger than average polished timber floorboards, and glorious high ceilings with decorative roses and cornices. It simply is a sight to behold.
However, you will not find this home trapped in time. The kitchen is modern, with timber stacker windows that open out onto the large covered rear deck with ample storage and an oversize stainless steel gas cooker. The master bedroom has it's own walk in robe with deluxe ensuite bathroom. The two other bedrooms downstairs have built in robes and ceiling fans plus the spacious lounge/dining room is serviced by reverse cycle air conditioning and wood fire heater. The main bathroom is huge and has also received an update, with a luxurious built in tub with separate shower recess. Conveniently, there is also a fully lockable study/office at the rear that is accessed off the deck. It could be an ideal space to work from home.
The fun doesn't stop there. Upstairs there are another two bedrooms in the attic plus an additional air conditioned rumpus. You can also access further storage opportunities through the other side of the rumpus room, a great spot to put away Christmas decorations and other items only needed every now and then.
The double lock up steel frame garage with carport is just over 2 years old and also has a toilet installed for added family convenience when hosting get together's, plus there is another timber framed single shed on the other side of the fully fenced yard for further covered storage needs.
All of this, only a matter of minutes from the centre of town. You will want to inspect this one.
