Trentham 23 Gleeson Street
Country period home to be treasured
Behind a most established and private pittosporum hedge, on a generous corner block of 1715sqm, come and discover this light and bright weatherboard, which has been lovingly restored to achieve its full art deco glory.
As soon as you walk through the double bevelled glass front doors, into the generous reception area, you will be in awe of the authentic art deco architecture and features of curving forms, muted colours, fine craftsmanship and rich materials.
The three bedrooms include a master with built-in wardrobes and central bathroom with tile dado walls and flexible bedroom to become the home office to create that balanced lifestyle of living and working from home.
A traditional formal lounge, with Ned Kelly woodfire heater and adjacent dining room, all have the charm of period detail such as ornate cornicing, decorative picture rails and architraves and polished hardwood floors.
The country-style open plan kitchen, with an informal meals area, has a five-burner gas top, electric convection oven, timber benches, glass framed cupboards, mobile island bench with inbuilt storage and ceramic tiled floors, opens onto a generous timber deck accentuating the opportunity for alfresco entertaining and provides a seamless extension to create more space and natural light to relax in and enjoy.
The garden is truly magnificent, with many designed rooms, including a beautiful copse of Silver Birch, planted amongst the graciously curved stone pathways to optimise the cool country garden theme of springtime flowers, autumnal deciduous colours and winter bulbs. The stunning feature is an enormous pittosporum tree creating the perfect alfresco canopy to relax in the afternoon sun. An edible kitchen garden has raised beds and the two rainwater tanks allow plenty of water to nurture and grow the garden.
Additional features are the double-glazed windows, full insulation throughout, reverse cycle split system A/C, security fly screen doors and all town services including the NBN.
The rear of the property features a double lockup garage with side street driveway entrance and handy shed for wood storage and secure side fencing, with the bonus being a single carport off Gleeson Street for easy access to the house.
Only one hour from Melbourne with fast train access from Woodend, this amazing home will appeal to a young family or the retiree, both seeking the opportunity for a lifestyle change and community connection in Trentham.
