This genuine heritage-style property has been owned by the same family for the past 45 years. There is a peaceful Hills feeling about this property with its extensive well-established garden featuring its own creek and culvert as well as meandering pathways and mature trees. As you explore the garden, a private nook will emerge, just perfect for sitting quietly with a book and a glass of wine or cup of coffee.
The house was designed and built by the Hewett family, renowned for building many of Blackwood’s earliest homes. Dating from approximately 1923, it is of solid red brick construction, and features polished floorboards, high ceilings and heritage features throughout. The three large bedrooms are of generous proportions, one with walk-in robe and two with built-in robes sympathetic to the style of the era. The huge formal lounge at the front of the house has a working fireplace and a gorgeous garden outlook. A separate dining room with working fireplace leads to a kitchen that has both heritage style and modern SMEG appliances. The rear bedroom has its own entrance and access to a two-way bathroom as well as a separate study – just perfect for a student family member or home office. The property has ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning to maintain a comfortable internal environment and under-floor heating in both bathrooms for those cold winter mornings. At the rear of the house is a comfortable and roomy casual family room which opens onto a wisteria covered pergola and has access to the real jewel of this property – the rear garden.
The rear garden has many quality facilities, with extensive paving, a generous lawned area and plenty of room for children to play, or to hold a large social gathering. A two-car open garage leads to an attached air-conditioned workshop/studio, which also has an adjoining air-conditioned fully plumbed entertainment room with café blinds and a fantastic overview of the rear garden area. This building features many heritage items reclaimed from buildings in the area. The backyard is completely private, and boasts an outdoor chess board, a bocce pitch, as well as an extensive lawned area. The rear garden also includes a fully lined, free-standing room which has utilised materials from a local cottage such as jarrah weatherboards and Baltic pine floorboards. It also has underground power and an available phone line. This room could be a home office, a small studio, a teenager’s study room, or a variety of other potential uses.
This property is secluded and peaceful, yet it is in convenient proximity to all that Blackwood has to offer, such as cafes, supermarkets, bakeries, transport links (rail and bus) as well as a variety of services. Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University are a short distance away, as is Westfield Marion shopping centre. There are several highly regarded schools, both public and private, within a short distance, and the Wittunga Botanical Gardens is another local attraction.
