Big, bold, sturdy and versatile, this mid-century c1959 home has had just the one owner and is preserved in time, right down to the original window furnishings, wooden pelmets and most light fittings.
Boasting four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large rumpus or billiards room and upstairs granny flat by way of an extension to the home in 1982, this property is perfectly suited to a large and/or extended family.
The covered front patio leads into a spacious entrance hall boasting 9 foot ceilings and the front living room along with the dining area and kitchen enjoy terrific natural light with large windows at the front of the home overlooking the neat front garden and Mowbray racecourse. For the racing enthusiast you can even sit in the comfort of your own home and watch the Launceston Cup each year! Sliding wooden doors provide the option to separate the dining and living rooms whilst a Daikin inverter heat-pump keeps this area comfortable year round. Timber panelling reminiscent of the era feature in the dining room with clever storage now built into where once a wood-heater resided.
The roomy kitchen located toward the rear of the home has plenty of tiled bench-space, traditional Simpson stove and Fisher & Paykel dishwasher all in good working order. From here you access the light filled rumpus room with exposed timber beams, handy second toilet, additional shower room and more storage options under the stairwell.
Two of the three downstairs bedrooms have floor to ceiling built-in robes serviced by a family bathroom with mid-century enamel bath, pedestal vanity, shower and toilet. The fourth bedroom is upstairs and forms part of a fully self-contained granny flat with bathroom and a kitchenette with terrific views across Heritage Forest to Invermay, the Tamar River and Trevallyn. Plenty more storage here also with a large built-in robe, storage cupboards and the stairwell is protected by a half wall with child/pet safety door.
The home is insulated with updated wiring, plumbing, guttering and downpipes. The easy to maintain rear yard enjoys mature shrubs and has a fully powered external den, single garage, carport, off street parking and children’s cubby house that also provides handy trailer storage beneath.
Just a short walk to popular Heritage Forest, ideal for cycling or walking the dog and the vibrant Mowbray Shopping and Business Centre that includes two major supermarkets, local shops, medical centre, banks and eateries is a seven minute walk away. Also a comfortable stroll to the nearby University and no more than a ten minute drive into the Launceston CBD.
