Family Home on Fortescue - PLEASE CALL AGENT FOR VIEWING TIME
In response to the unfolding Covid-19 outbreak, Luton Properties has made the decision to run all open homes by prior appointment and further to that, stagger buyers through with smaller numbers inside each property at any one time to limit interaction and the possible spread of the virus. As a result of this, the wait time to look through may increase slightly and we ask buyers to be prepared for a minor delay to gaining access inside our open homes and to factor this into their schedule. If you would like to attend one of our scheduled open homes please get in touch and we can advise you of the scheduled time/s and day.
Peacefully secluded at the top of a leafy cul-de-sac this four bedroom, two bathroom character-packed family home is a real delight. Take in the appealing streetscape and terraced front gardens where a large established magnolia along with Daphne, hellebores and many bulbs grow in the dappled light. A beautiful timber deck and leadlight doorway welcome you as you approach the home and you may well have fallen in love with this gem before you even cross the doorstep.
Inside, you’ll find a light-filled, spacious living room flowing to the adjacent dining room, overlooking the leafy gardens and enjoying north-facing views.
The kitchen is a tactile timber delight. With feature handcrafted yellow box and red gum benchtops, quality stainless-steel appliances and delightful cupboards fashioned from reclaimed fence-palings.
The bedrooms and renovated bathrooms are separate from the living areas with the master bedroom suite featuring a recently renovated ensuite with under-floor heating, heated towel rail and quality black and white floor tiles. This stylish space is an owner’s oasis – perfect for relaxing in the bath after a long day at work or simply enjoying the calm ambience, away from the bustle of family life.
Downstairs there’s a large rumpus room, filled with natural light, shelving & handcrafted seating that features cupboard storage underneath – all perfect for a teenager’s retreat, a study, work space or hobby room. There’s also an oversized double garage and abundant storage space under the home that’s been sectioned out with lighting and shelves.
The rear yard will delight the whole family. Those with who love to grow and enjoy their own produce will relish the purpose-built veggie patch. Posts have been concreted in ready for espalier of fruit or ornamental trees, a non-invasive blackberry has been planted and the fig and apricot trees are well established. Crops of the perennial Lucerne are growing, ready to be cut to create your own mulch and an area at the side of the garage has recently been paved in preparation for a water tank to be installed.
Colorbond fencing surrounds much of the enclosed yard where children and pets will be able to run around to their hearts content. There’s space for a cubby house and chook pen and the side gate is large enough to allow a trailer through.
Stroll up the nearby path to a park, Maribyrnong Pre and Primary Schools and local shops or cycle along the many pathways that spider-web the suburb to Kaleen Shops and Indoor Sports Centre. Close to Kaleen Primary and High Schools, St Michael’s Primary School and Radford College. With easy access to bus and main transport routes, Lyneham, Dickson and Northbourne Avenue’s Light Rail stops are a short drive or cycle away.
Naturally charming, this home has a warmth and character that could only have come from the thoughtful creativity and design of previous owners – form really does enhance functionality here. If you are looking for a delightful, spacious family home to add your own style and character to, then look no further than 11 Fortescue. Be sure to inspect.
