Elegance on St John
Situated amid the charm and character of old Launceston's architecture and it's established tree lined streets, this 1920's character townhouse has been meticulously renovated to capitalize on the home's original features whilst being lovingly and thoughtfully designed to provide modern and contemporary living spaces.
The original cottage contains three bedrooms, all with built-ins and the main bedroom has the luxury of access to the master bathroom with a walk in shower and separate bath.
To the rear of the home, the second and third bedrooms adjoin the second bathroom whilst the laundry gives access to an all-weather deck. The third bedroom has the bonus of french doors opening onto this deck with its pleasant sitting area and views to West Launceston.
A separate sitting room or study den links the former cottage with the open plan living areas and provides an inviting and cozy retreat.
The designers of this renovation are to be congratulated for maintaining the character of this home whilst providing an extension that capitalizes on the corner aspect of the land and captures its extensive views.
Light and airy, the living room consists of a spacious kitchen with stone benches, s/steel Smeg stove and range hood, Fisher & Paykel s/steel dishwasher plus extensive storage. The wide island-bench also provides the added bonus of extra storage with a series of cupboards opening onto the living area.
The kitchen overlooks the dining area and living room with it's French doors to an elevated deck.
Two reverse cycle air conditioners (heat pumps) are strategically positioned within the home providing both heating and cooling throughout the year.
The low maintenance gardens surround the home with secure fencing and two parking bays, one accessed from St. John Street and the other from Balfour via a remote controlled electric gate. River pebbles overlaying weed matting ensure garden beds are easy-care for busy people whilst drip feeders look after what little watering is required.
