1 SPENCER STREET, BALINGUP
$375,000 | 3/4 bedroom, 1 bathroom
This historic 3 or 4 bedroom house has been restored and revitalized to blend the past with the present. Features include a unique cellar, polished jarrah floorboards and Oregon doors.
The well-presented home has been finished and upgraded with attention to detail whilst still retaining its character and charm of yesteryear.
Built in an era when jarrah timber was plentiful, the home features high quality jarrah flooring which highlights beautifully against the dado boards. Original Oregon doors (stripped and restored to their natural honey colour) compliment the rich colours of the jarrah.
The exposed jarrah flooring in the kitchen and open-plan family room is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. The kitchen has solid jarrah cupboards and has a Westingthouse fan-forced electric oven. Windows have been enlarged to take advantage of the beautiful views and create a light, bright ambience. This area is heated by a Jarrahdale slow combustion heater.
A 3x2x2 cellar is accessed from the kitchen/dining room - ideal for storing locally-produced wine! Double glass and jarrah doors lead into the formal lounge which features 1930s plaster rose work. The windows of the lounge have also been enlarged to enhance natural light and take advantage of the views.
Another room, ideal as either a sitting room or large office is located next to the living area and could also be used as a fourth bedroom if required. Two of the other bedrooms are spacious and feature high ceilings and dado paneling. Both the bathroom and laundry have polished jarrah floorboards and jarrah cupboards.
The homestead is situated in the heart of Balingup on a large 1868sqmm block and has a beautiful oak tree at the front of the property. A large rustic wooden shed is sheltered by a neighbouring elm tree, and a 6x6m ZINCALUME shed provides ample storage and garage space.
Only a short stroll away from the coffee shops and village green, the property zoning allows for a business operation if future owners should wish to do so.
